Alignment Between Separate CHIP and Marketplace Issuers by State, 2015

This map highlights the extent of overlap in 2015 between issuers offering managed care plans in a state’s separate Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and those offering plans in health insurance marketplaces. This map updates a 2014 map showing data from the first year marketplace coverage was available. Plans offered by the same issuer in CHIP and the marketplaces likely differ in benefits and cost sharing. However, overlap in issuers may provide an opportunity for aligning the plans to promote consistency and continuity of care for children who may be moving from one program to another. The map below shows which states had complete, partial, or no overlap between CHIP and marketplace issuers in 2015.[1]

You also can find a full list of 2015 marketplace and separate CHIP issuers by state here. This information also complements a report, issued by the Association for Community Affiliated Plans, which analyzes the extent of overlap between marketplaces and Medicaid managed care issuers by state.
