AHRQ Child & Adolescent Health Digest: Public Health Insurance Continuity for Children

AHRQ Child & Adolescent Health Digest

Public Health Insurance Continuity for Children

Academic Pediatrics has published a new study from the AHRQ-CMS Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) Pediatric Quality Measures Program (PQMP) Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Center of Excellence on the critical topic of public health insurance continuity for children. CHOP investigators sought to determine reproducibility of public insurance retention rates for children using three different metrics and found that all three metrics demonstrated reproducible estimates at the State level with sample sizes of 2,000, 5,000, and 10,000. They concluded that the complete set of these three reproducible metrics could be used to evaluate multipronged and multilevel strategies to retain eligible children in public health insurance.
