PROJECTCHIPRA Quality Demonstration Evaluation

Urban and several other research organizations were commissioned to evaluate the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration, which sought to improve the quality of health care delivered to children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP. 

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has a complete list of reports, including those written by our evaluation partners. "Key Lessons from the National Evaluation of the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Grant Program" summarizes the reports and highlights the demonstration's objectives, the strategies states used, and the lessons learned, including short descriptions of select activities implemented by CHIPRA Quality Demonstration states.

Urban's reports on the evaluation—including state spotlights—are listed below:
