Cárdenas , Tony (CA)


Strikes the Prevention and Public Health Fund as an offset.

Duncan (TN)


Allows the Secretary to award supplemental grant funds to health centers to implement models related to permitting medical professionals with out-of-state, active, unencumbered licenses to use the health centers’ grounds and facilities in order to volunteer their services as within the scope of their practices on behalf of a nonprofit organization without any compensation for periods not to exceed 7 consecutive days, if the State involved is notified of such permission. (This is in addition to the bill's current list of items to which models can be related.)

Kennedy (MA), Meehan (PA), Napolitano (CA)


Ensures mental and behavioral health care parity for CHIP beneficiaries, including both children and pregnant women.

Pallone (NJ)


SUBSTITUTE Extends funding for critically important healthcare programs such as the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Community Health Centers that were last authorized in the bipartisan Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015. The amendment does so without making it harder for people to keep their health insurance or gutting funding for public health programs supported by the Prevention Fund. Instead, it fully pays for these policies with a commonsense offset.

Walden (OR)


SUBSTITUTE Reauthorizes the CHIP program and extend various public health programs.

Walden (OR)


Relating to the Prevention and Public Health Fund, and adjustments to Medicare Part B and Part D premium subsidies for higher income individuals.
