The Southern Institute on Children and Families is pleased to announce the release of a new report, Medicaid and CHIP Retention: A Key Strategy to Reducing the Uninsured. The report shares information learned during the Retention Initiative: Achieving Stability in Medicaid and SCHIP Coverage funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The report addresses the retention issues identified by the eight states that participated in the Initiative – Alabama, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington – and highlights the strategies used by these states that were found to be effective in improving retention rates.

Policymakers, practitioners and advocates will find the report useful. State Medicaid and CHIP officials in particular will find new ideas and approaches to reducing the uninsured through maximizing and maintaining enrollment of eligible children and families in public health coverage programs.
