Performance Improvement 2003. Highlights


The State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) was enacted in 1997 to expand health insurance coverage for children. This evaluation focused on the impact of the enhanced insurance status of children served by two HRSA sponsored programs: the community health centers (CHCs) and Title V maternal and child health programs, and the impact on HRSA grantee organizations. The study included site visits; interviews with former CHC users; and an analysis of CHCs transactional encounter data.

Three groups of children were evaluated 1) children who continue using HRSA sites after enrolling in SCHIP; 2) children who are new to the HRSA sites; and 3) children who discontinued use of the HRSA sites.
