This environmental scan report compiles and assesses the available literature from the last 5 years on preventive health care services for child beneficiaries (including adolescents) in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It addresses preventive service utilization patterns and barriers, cost and health outcomes associated with prevention, and activities designed to improve preventive service rates and outcomes. This report is intended to help inform the development and dissemination of resources for states to use in their efforts to increase the utilization of recommended preventive services by Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries.
