This report synthesizes findings from case studies conducted in 2001 and 2002 in ten states selected for the Congressionally Mandated Evaluation of SCHIP: California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Texas (Hill et al. 2002). Discussion addresses such issues as program design, outreach and enrollment strategies, benefits, service delivery systems, cost sharing, crowd out prevention, parental coverage, financing, and coordination of SCHIP and Medicaid. Overarching conclusions identify lessons learned from effective implementation.

Interim Evaluation Report: Congressionally Mandated Evaluation of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (Research Report)
Judith Wooldridge, Ian Hill, Mary Harrington, Genevieve M. Kenney, Corinna Hawkes, Jennifer M. Haley

This report, the first from a congressionally mandated evaluation, draws on case studies in six of the ten states included in the national evaluation, focus groups, preliminary data from a survey of low-income uninsured families nationwide, and enrollment records from three states. The authors found that states acted quickly and made great use of the flexibility afforded by the SCHIP statute to design their programs, although they did face many implementation challenges. Despite the challenges that remain, evidence to date suggests that SCHIP is a successful program popular among legislators, families, advocates, and providers alike.
