Past, Present, and Future: A Report on State CHIP Programs

Charting CHIP IV: A Report on State Children’s Health Insurance Programs Prior to Major Federal Policy Changes in 2009 and 2010, NASHP’s fourth comprehensive report of states’ Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP), is a detailed look at CHIP programs as of 2008. Given that this report examines CHIP programs prior to passage of the CHIP Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), it provides a baseline from which to measure changes due to these laws. This webinar highlighted findings from the Charting CHIP IV report. It also highlighted just a few of states’ many accomplishments in implementing provisions of CHIPRA, including Alabama’s use of the new, less burdensome citizenship documentation system; how Nebraska implemented new oral health coverage provisions; and Colorado’s path to receiving a CHIPRA performance bonus. Finally, the webinar focused on the future of children’s coverage and how states can build on the successes of the CHIP and Medicaid programs to improve coverage and quality for children under the Affordable Care Act.
