Medicaid and CHIP: Given the Association Between Parent and Child Insurance Status, New Expansions May Benefit Families
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 42 pages
The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act expands health insurance to millions of individuals, including many parents. New insurance options for parents raise a question about whether providing health insurance to parents benefits their children. The Children┐s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 required this assessment of: (1) the extent to which a parent┐s health insurance status is associated with a child┐s health insurance status, use of services, and parental satisfaction with their child┐s care; and (2) how selected states┐ parent coverage under Medicaid and CHIP may change given upcoming expansions. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand edition of an important, hard-to-find publication.
