Children’s Health Insurance Resources

Through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), states and the nation have made substantial progress in covering children and improving their access to quality health care supporting healthy growth and development. With ongoing funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, NASHP has supported, analyzed, and reported on state efforts to extend children’s coverage since the CHIP program’s inception, building on our longstanding work on Medicaid. NASHP supports active state-to-state exchange and collaborative learning by regularly convening state officials working on children’s coverage issues. The resources listed below are intended to provide information about children’s coverage for state and federal program administrators and policymakers as well as other stakeholders and can help inform state and national policy discussions about the future of children’s coverage.
