In the seven states with CHIP risk-based managed care programs that are not fully integrated with Medicaid, there is a somewhat different mix of plans to that of Medicaid (see Figure 7 and Appendix B, Table 5), with more nonprofit public-only plans for CHIP in those states.

Despite this difference, there is substantial overlap in the plans that participate in both Medicaid and CHIP. Of the 189 plans participating in either program in the 20 study states, fully 147 participate in both Medicaid and CHIP with 15 participating only in CHIP and the remaining 27 participating only in Medicaid (see Figure 8). There are only three states without a very substantial overlap in the two programs’ plans (see Appendix B, Tables 4 and 5).
