The research evidence strongly indicates that SCHIP has been a success, leading to improvements in insurance coverage and access to care among low-income children, without crowding out employer coverage on a large scale. The research also clearly indicates that reductions in program funding or eligibility, either to children or their parents, would have adverse effects on the health and well-being of children.
