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.

Active renewal policies that require families to submit documentation to verify their continued eligibility appeared to contribute to substantial drops in SCHIP enrollment. New York City was much less likely to disenroll children from SCHIP when using a simplified renewal process at a child's 12-month eligibility redetermination than either the rest of New York State or Kansas, both of which used an active renewal process. The figure image is a vertical bar graph depicting the percentages of SCHIP-insured children who were mandatorily disenrolled, after 12 or 24 months.

In the first grouping of three vertical bars, the vertical bar to the left indicates 17 percent of New York City SCHIP-insured children were disenrolled after 12 months. The second vertical bar indicates 32 percent of SCHIP-insured children from the balance of New York State were disenrolled at the time of their 12-month redetermination hearing. The third vertical bar indicates 59 percent of Kansas SCHIP-insured children were disenrolled at the time of their 12-month redetermination hearing.

In the second grouping of three vertical bars, the vertical bar to the left indicates 58 percent of the remaining SCHIP-insured children in New York City were disenrolled at the time of their 24-month redetermination hearing. The second vertical bar indicates 55 percent of the remaining SCHIP-insured children from the balance of New York State were disenrolled at the time of their 24-month redetermination hearing. The third vertical bar indicates 36 percent of the remaining SCHIP-insured children in Kansas were disenrolled at the time of their 24-month redetermination hearing.
