The final report of the SCHIP Evaluation focuses primarily on case studies and surveys of SCHIP enrollees and recent disenrollees in 10 study states, and on analyses of two national surveys that provide nationwide perspectives on SCHIP implementation and uninsured children's access to care. The report presents findings from an extensive analysis of the mandated surveys of SCHIP enrollees and disenrollees in 10 states, and of Medicaid enrollees and disenrollees in 2 states. The Evaluation addresses questions about SCHIP program design, implementation and evolution, SCHIP coordination with Medicaid, characteristics of enrollees, substitution of public coverage for private health insurance, SCHIP's effect on access to care, and family experiences with application and enrollment.
