Children’s Health Coverage: Medicaid, CHIP, and Next Steps
The Alliance for Health Reform and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation co-sponsored this briefing to examine the factors which influence children’s coverage.
Questions addressed include:
What are the trends in private sector coverage? How well are the enrollment simplification and outreach tools that are included in this year’s CHIP reauthorization helping to reach those children who are eligible but unenrolled? How much does a child’s coverage depend on where he or she lives?

Speakers for this session:
The panel is moderated by Ed Howard of the Alliance For Health Care Reform.
Jocelyn Guyer, Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University Health Policy Institute
Nate Checketts, Utah’s CHIP program
Stan Dorn, Urban Institute.
