Medicaid pay for performance programs and childhood immunization status.
This national study examined the effects of pay for performance (P4P) programs on childhood immunization rates. It found no overall effect of Medicaid P4P on the chance that children aged 19-35 months had completed the 4:3:1:3:3:1 vaccination series. However, there was a 4 percentage point increase in the chance that a child 19-23 months had completed the series.
