Figure A-4 shows that all grantees plan to use administrative data to examine Medicaid coverage, and most grantees also include questions about Medicaid and employer­provided health insurance on their surveys.  Only four grantees, however, specifically discussed examining use of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) — two through administrative data, and two through surveys.  Over half the grantees plan to ask former recipients if adults and children in the family have some type of health insurance coverage.
