The site uses data that was voluntarily submitted by states on “selected health and program indicators.” An introduction to the site says it offers information about these questions:
- Who enrolls in Medicaid and CHIP?
- What are annual expenditures for Medicaid and CHIP?
- What data are CMS and states developing to support program improvement?
The announcement was made during a “Pen & Pad” briefing and, thanks to efforts by AHCJ’s Washington, D.C., chapter, we are providing a recording of the briefing. Click here for an MP3 file.
The National Association of Medicaid Directors has released a statement expressing concern over the accuracy, timeliness and comparability of the data.
