Abstract There is a growing need for person-level enrollment, utilization, and payment data for the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) so that states, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and researchers can examine program transitions, access to services, and quality of care, among other priorities. Under CHIP, states have three options for covering individuals: (1) create Medicaid expansion CHIP (M-CHIP) programs by expanding Medicaid, (2) create separate CHIP programs, or (3) implement a combination of the two. According to CMS, 8 states (including the District of Columbia) operate M-CHIP programs, 17 operate separate CHIP programs, and 26 operate combination programs (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services 2011). Separate CHIP programs, including in combination states, frequently offer different benefits, deliver health care services through different providers, and utilize different information technology systems than do Medicaid or M-CHIP. The Medicaid and CHIP Statistical Information System (MSIS) is the only standardized, national-level source of person-level Medicaid and CHIP data. Since 1999, states have been required to report complete Medicaid and M-CHIP enrollment and claims data to MSIS on a quarterly basis. However, states have only been able to report complete separate CHIP program data since October 2010. Three of the 43 states with separate CHIP programs currently do so. In 2010, CMS contracted with Mathematica Policy Research to provide comprehensive technical assistance (TA) to states to help them report separate CHIP data. In 2012, Mathematica published Reporting Person-Level Separate CHIP Data to MSIS.
