Abstract

The reauthorization of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) in Congress offers an opportunity to assess the legislation in light of recent developments in Medicaid and states’ health coverage reform efforts. Fundamental child health goals can be achieved while still affording states additional flexibility to invest in populations of all ages.
