Quality of Care for Children in Medicaid Managed Care


As states enroll more children in Medicaid managed care plans, concerns have been raised about the quality of care these children receive compared with children covered by employer-sponsored health insurance. To shed more light on this possible disparity, this Picker Program Grant will tap and analyze multiple data sources- including the Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS) and the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans (CAHPS). Evaluation of health plan performance measures will be supplemented by interviews with health plan executives.
