Holding Steady, Looking Ahead: Kaiser’s Annual Findings of a 50-State Survey
Kaiser Family Foundation
The findings of survey by Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured and Georgetown University’s Center for Children and Families indicate that in 2010 despite tight budgets, nearly all states maintained or made improvements in their Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP). The annual 50-state survey of Medicaid and CHIP eligibility rules, enrollment – renewal and cost sharing practices found that 49 states maintained their coverage policies, 13 states expanded eligibility, and 14 states made improvements in processes to reduce burdens on families. In 2011 however, the states will face growing challenges as they face immense budget pressures and a slow economic recovery. See, Holding Steady, Looking Ahead: Annual Findings of a 50-State Survey of Eligibility Rules, Enrollment and Renewal Procedures, and Cost-Sharing Practices in Medicaid and CHIP, 2010-2011 and related materials are available online.
