Yet enrolling those who are eligible for such programs is one of the easiest ways to expand coverage. This briefing, co-sponsored by Alliance for Health Reform and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), looked at ways to streamline recruitment and enrollment, while exploring how expanding Medicaid and CHIP could affect state budgets.
