Medicaid and CHIP
Mathematica works closely with states, federal agencies, and foundations to help design, evaluate, and improve Medicaid and state Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP). The topics we cover include:
- Health insurance for children
- Community living for people with long-term-care needs
- Medicaid managed care programs for people with chronic illnesses and disabilities
- Care coordination for people who are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare
- Mental health and substance abuse issues
- Independence and employment for people with potentially disabling conditions
- State variations in Medicaid prescription drug expenditures
- Medicaid claims and eligibility data analysis to assess eligibility patterns, service use, costs, and quality
- Health care reform
Technical Assistance and Analytic Support for the Medicaid and CHIP Core Set Measures
Measuring and improving the quality of care for children and adults in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is a high priority for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and its Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS).
Providing Business Analytics and Data Quality Development for Medicaid and CHIP Business Information Solutions (MACBIS)
This initiative is building an infrastructure for robust data analytics, and integrating and aligning federal and state data sources, to support data-driven policy decisions about Medicaid and CHIP policy and programs.
