The permitting laws for SCHIP, integrated within the Balanced funds Act of 1997, made to be had to states (and the District of Columbia) nearly $40 billion over a 10-year interval for this application. Like Medicaid, SCHIP is a joint federal-state software, with investment from either resources, however it is carried out by way of the states. therefore, there are SCHIP courses in all the states and the District of Columbia.

We have indicated above how the simplified reenrollment process has played a role in increasing reenrollment in Michigan. Another factor that Michigan found to be instrumental in increasing the rate of reenrollment was allowing self-declaration of income rather than requiring the submission of pay stubs or copies of income tax statements. The SCHIP population is continually changing, both in terms of residence and income, and because eligibility for Medicaid coverage depends on the age of the child.

States should consider using the school lunch program and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children to target SCHIP-eligible children. 4 Disenrollment M any states are experiencing high rates of disenrollment from their SCHIP programs, yet it is not clear if these rates reflect dissatisfaction with the program by participants, changes in income limits that cause participants to lose SCHIP eligibility, participants moving to private insurance, or deficiencies in the administration of the program.

It is important to distinguish among these reasons for disenrollment, because policy makers would interpret coverage under private insurance as a success, but failure to renew due to paperwork burden as a failure. Hill listed some of the factors that hinder the redetermination process. Among them are the reliance on a mail-based system, rather than on personal contact, that many times left the recipient confused; the requirement to resubmit documentation that had already been submitted on initial enrollment; lack of coordination with Medicaid when income dropped, leaving the family eligible for Medicaid rather than for SCHIP; and automatic disenrollment in some state programs when there was no response to the renewal notice.
