This issue brief examines decisions New York faces as it considers the future of the Child Health Plus (CHP) program, the State's health insurance plan for children. Federal funding for the program was recently extended, but only until September 2017, and the coverage landscape has changed considerably with the Affordable Care Act. Discussion about the funding of CHP could serve as an important vehicle for reevaluating the range of children's health coverage in New York, to assess whether current benefits and payment policies are supporting the delivery of health care for children that best addresses their health and developmental needs.
The brief was informed by conversations with regulators, advocates, policymakers, and health plans, and based on an analysis that compares key features of CHP to other coverage options available to New York families.
