Determining How States Invest in Early Child Development Under Medicaid and CHIP


The Fund's work with George Washington University has provided states with valuable guidance on maximizing the potential of Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to deliver a full range of preventive care and developmental services to young children from low-income families. This project will provide states with further guidance by analyzing how program investment and design can affect the delivery of these services. The George Washington team will first compare key components of each state's Medicaid and CHIP programs, including provider network specifications, compensation arrangements for preventive services, medical necessity definitions, and standards of care. If this first stage proceeds satisfactorily, project staff will then undertake a more in-depth review of five states to gauge the impact of their program choices on the pediatric care provided to low-income families. State Medicaid and CHIP administrators will be able to draw from the successful approaches highlighted by this work in their efforts to improve delivery of child developmental services.
