Maximizing Enrollment in Utah

Results from a Diagnostic Assessment of the State's Enrollment and Retention Systems for Kids

While national health reform continues to be debated in Washington, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation national program is helping states continue to move forward in helping families fully utilize existing federal programs that provide health coverage to children and youth.

The set of reports released by the Maximizing Enrollment for Kids program, administered by the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), describe and assess Medicaid and CHIP enrollment systems in eight grantee states (Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin) . The eight reports plus a summary synthesis provide a roadmap to increasing children’s enrollment in these programs and others nationwide. The diagnostic assessments were conducted to provide a foundation for these states’ work over the next three years to improve enrollment of eligible children.
