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 Set Annual Review Workgroup to review and strengthen the 2023 Child and Adult Core Sets.
Materials from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 Child and Adult Core Set Annual Review can be located in the resources archives.
Information about the Health Home Core Set Annual Review is available here.
