Interim Evaluation Report: Congressionally Mandated Evaluation of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. 2. Survey of State Program Administrators


To provide a national context for the intensive analysis of the ten study states, the evaluation also includes a survey of the SCHIP program administrators in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the five territories. This telephone survey, which will collect information about program design and evolution, will take place in 2003; the analysis, summarizing national trends, will be completed during 2003. In addition to providing basic descriptive information on program design features, the findings will be organized around three topics: (1) reasons why children's health insurance programs are designed as they are; (2) accomplishments and challenges to date, for example, with respect to outreach and enrollment, design of delivery systems and provider networks, and administration of premium and cost-sharing provisions; and (3) pressing new issues requiring attention in the near term.
