HealthPayer Intelligence

While the Affordable Care Act and other healthcare reforms have reduced the numbers of uninsured children around the nation, more work needs to be done and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has invested more funds in ensuring more adolescents obtain healthcare access through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the Medicaid program.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reported in a press release yesterday that CMS will be awarding $32 million to help communities across 27 states improve enrollment among eligible children for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid. This will be completed in association with the Connecting Kids to Coverage campaign.
