Abstract States have the option to administer CHIP through a Medicaid expansion program (M-CHIP), which provides full Medicaid benefits; a separate state program (S-CHIP) that offers a different package of benefits; or a combination of the two. More states have elected to establish S-CHIP than M-CHIP programs, although a number of states have set up combined programs. With a combined program, a state uses M-CHIP to extend Medicaid eligibility to children with family incomes above the levels that would otherwise qualify them for Medicaid coverage. S-CHIP then extends coverage to children with family incomes above the M-CHIP ceilings.
