Design Considerations for the Future of Children’s Coverage

Download Publication (pdf)

May 2015

With funding for State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) assured through FY 2017 and an abrupt end to CHIP no longer on the horizon, MACPAC’s work on the future of children’s coverage shifts to the broader question of how continuum of coverage options for low- and moderate-income children should be designed. This presentation focuses on two potential design issues: the extent to which cost sharing affects access and use of services, and how other federal programs structure subsidies or benefits as income changes.
