This paper examines changes in children's receipt of well-child and preventive dental care in Medicaid/CHIP in two states that adopted policies aimed at promoting greater preventive care receipt. The authors find that policy changes such as reimbursement increases, incentives, and delivery system changes can lead to increases in preventive care use among children in Medicaid and CHIP, but that reported preventive care receipt still falls short of recommended levels.
