Comprehensive Access to Robust Insurance Now Guaranteed for Kids Act or the CARING for Kids Act

This bill permanently extends the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and related measures, programs, and authorities.

Specifically, the bill permanently funds CHIP and related programs that support the development of child health quality measures and outreach and enrollment efforts. The bill also permanently authorizes the Medicaid and CHIP express lane eligibility option, which allows states to use information from designated programs (e.g., the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) to streamline eligibility determinations for children.
