Do SCHIP Enrollees Stay Insured?

The Child Health Insurance Research Initiative (CHIRI[TM]) is an effort to supply policymakers information to help them improve access to, and the quality of, health care for low-income children.

Researchers conducted surveys in 2000 and 2001 of families of children enrolled in SCHIP in Kansas and New York. The surveys were conducted shortly after enrollment and again at least one year later (followup) to examine the insurance experiences of SCHIP enrollees. The figure image is a vertical bar graph depicting the percentages of surveyed enrollees and their insurance provider type, at the time of each survey.

The vertical bar furthest to the left indicates 44 percent of Kansas SCHIP enrollees were served by SCHIP or Medicare, prior to the pre-enrollment survey, while 26 percent of those surveyed were served by private insurers, and 30 percent were uninsured.

The vertical bar second from the left indicates 78 percent of Kansas SCHIP enrollees were served by SCHIP or Medicare during the followup enrollment survey, while 15 percent of those surveyed were served by private insurers, and 7 percent were uninsured.

The vertical bar third from the left indicates 17 percent of New York SCHIP enrollees were served by SCHIP or Medicare, prior to the pre-enrollment survey, while 23 percent of those surveyed were served by private insurers, and 60 percent were uninsured.

The vertical bar fourth from the left indicates 79 percent of New York SCHIP enrollees were served by SCHIP or Medicare during the followup enrollment survey, while 4 percent of those surveyed were served by private insurers, and 17 percent were uninsured.
