Lessons: Policy Change

    • December 31, 2008

Over the course of the Covering Kids & Families® (CKF) evaluation, three telephone surveys were conducted with Medicaid and SCHIP officials in all 46 states with CKF grantees. The surveys asked state officials to discuss the most important policy changes that CKF had directly influenced, as well as the sustainability of these changes.

Medicaid and SCHIP officials identified 183 unique policy and procedural changes that CKF had influenced since 2002 in the following areas: simplified enrollment, renewal/retention, coordination, eligibility and outreach.
