Evaluating RWJF's Maximizing Enrollment program

The Foundation's initiative, Maximizing Enrollment for Kids: Making Medicaid and SCHIP Work, was designed to increase health insurance coverage of eligible but uninsured children in Medicaid and SCHIP by helping states improve their policies and procedures and to measure the impact of these changes.This project will support a quantitative evaluation of Maximizing Enrollment for Kids. Using information from states' Medicaid and State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) data systems, the evaluation team will estimate the overall impact of the project on enrollment and retention of eligible children in these programs. Additionally, the project will measure the effectiveness of specific strategies, policies and procedures to enroll and retain eligible children. Deliverables include a series of detailed impact reports and policy briefs, designed to provide feedback on an ongoing basis to the national program office, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the grantees, as well as the research and policy communities.
