A bipartisan Senate agreement reached Wednesday on the federal budget would boost funding for a range of health programs, including efforts to combat the national opioid epidemic.
The deal, which would have to win approval from the House and President Donald Trump, would extend for a total of at least 10 years funding for the popular Children's Health Insurance Program.
CHIP, which provides health coverage to 9 million kids, recently had its funding extended for six years as part of an agreement to temporarily keep the government open last month.
Congress last fall failed to reauthorize CHIP. That had put several states, which jointly run the program with the federal government, on track to run out of money earmarked for children's health care within months.
The budget deal also would devote $6 billion to efforts to fight opioid abuse and would fund community health centers — which provide services for 26.5 million Americans — for at least the next two years.
The deal also calls for another $4 billion for veterans' hospitals and $2 billion for the National Institutes of Health.
