Using Data to Drive State Improvement in Enrollment and Retention Performance

The Maximizing Enrollment program has worked intensively with eight states to help them increase their use of Medicaid and CHIP enrollment and retention data to monitor and improve performance in enrolling and retaining eligible individuals. From this work, Maximizing Enrollment and Mathematica Policy Research, Inc., have developed a set of 12 core performance measures for enrollment and retention that states can use to monitor how long individuals stay covered once they are enrolled, track the results of eligibility-related policy changes, determine trends in program performance, and track progress as they implement changes in eligibility and retention policies under the Affordable Care Act.

Maximizing Enrollment is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that focuses on helping eight states increase enrollment and improve coverage for eligible individuals.
