This report summarizes findings about Florida’s KidCare from a case study conducted March 12-16, 2012 by staff from Mathematica Policy Research on behalf of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), the agency supervising the contract. Florida was selected as one of 10 states being studied in the current congressionally mandated study of CHIP authorized by the CHIP Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA). The case study covers the period from 2006 to the present, with a special focus on changes to the CHIP aspects of KidCare and changes the state made in response to CHIPRA legislation. For background information, we drew extensively on findings from the first congressionally mandated study of KidCare implementation (Harrington and Black 2003).
