Abstract For many years, policymakers and others with an interest in public health insurance coverage have had access to extensive person-level eligibility and claims data for the Medicaid and Medicaid expansion Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Access to comparable data for separate CHIP programs, however, has not been available. To satisfy a growing need for separate CHIP data to examine program transitions, access to services, and quality of care, among other measurement priorities, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) contracted with Mathematica Policy Research to provide technical assistance (TA) to states in reporting these data to the Medicaid and CHIP Statistical Information System (MSIS). To date, we have provided comprehensive TA to thirteen states, five of which are now reporting increased person-level CHIP data to CMS. In this guide, we provide for state stakeholders an overview of the MSIS data structure and submission process and guidance, based on our TA experiences, for reporting complete CHIP data to the system. We describe steps for planning and implementing reporting, common errors to avoid, and available resources, including TA. A future guide for programmers will provide more detail regarding MSIS data layouts and instructions for mapping native data from different sources.
