The May/June issue of States in Action will focus on the 2009 Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) and examine state progress in implementing CHIPRA in the past year. The CHIP program has historically supported state outreach and enrollment efforts; with CHIPRA, the program has now expanded its scope to include substantial support in the area of quality improvement as well. If you have a suggestion of a leader in this area who might be a good candidate for our "Ask the Expert" section, please submit a name, organizational affiliation, and a brief explanation of why you think he or she should be featured to [email protected].
