Estimates of Coverage Changes for Children Enrolled in Separate Children’s Health Insurance Programs in the Absence of Additional Federal CHIP Funding—Key Findings and Methodology

Report to the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission

Abstract

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) commissioned the Urban Institute to updates its model to consider the alternative health insurance options that would be available to children enrolled in separate CHIP programs were separate CHIP coverage to be discontinued. Chapter 1, “Sources of Coverage for Children if CHIP Funding Is Exhausted,” of the March 2015 MACPAC report to Congress presents key findings from our simulation modeling. This report provides additional detail on the methodology used to develop the estimates and includes supplemental tables that support the estimates included in chapter 1 of the March 2015 MACPAC report.
