Annual Review of the Medicaid and CHIP Child and Adult Core Sets of Quality Measures

The Child and Adult Core Sets of quality measures for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) are key indicators of the access to—and quality of—the health care Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries receive. The Core Sets are important tools states can use to monitor and improve the quality of health care provided to Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries.

Mathematica is supporting the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS) by convening the Child and Adult Core Sets Annual Review Workgroup to review and strengthen the Child and Adult Core Sets. This year's review will focus on updates to the 2026 Child and Adult Core Sets.

Materials from previous Child and Adult Core Sets Annual Reviews can be located in the resources archive.
