Developing an Electronic Application for New York's Public Insurance Programs


Many New Yorkers are deterred from applying for state public health insurance because of the lengthy and tedious enrollment processes. Programs in states such as California and Georgia, on the other hand, have managed to attract many uninsured residents through the use of simpler, faster computerized enrollment. The New York State Department of Health, with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is developing an electronic application for children and adults that would simplify, speed, and expand enrollment in Medicaid, Child Health Plus, and Family Health Plus. Under this Health Services Improvement Fund contract, the Lewin Group will: 1) provide technical assistance to those involved in this effort; 2) identify aspects of the New York electronic application that need improvement; and 3) recommend ways to achieve expected efficiency and enrollment gains and diffuse this technological breakthrough statewide.
