State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) Survey 2006-2007

Duration: 
1/1/2006 - 1/31/2007
Abstract: 

More than 95,000 children are enrolled in MaineCare, the State?s Medicaid and SCHIP program, which provides health coverage to low-income children in the Maine. State and federal policymakers are interested in monitoring the health status of children in the MaineCare program and the quality of care they receive. The purpose of this project is to obtain consumer feedback about MaineCare services, to learn about the health status and health behaviors of this population, and to understand reasons parents disenrolled their children from MaineCare. Project staff will conduct a telephone survey of a sample of parents with children on MaineCare, including current enrollees, new enrollees, and disenrollees. Findings from the survey report will be used to improve understanding of the needs of children on MaineCare and to develop quality improvement initiatives.
