Getting the Most Bang for Our Post-Health Reform Buck: Enrolling and Retaining Everyone Who’s Eligible


Tuesday, December 01, 2009

One of the main goals of health reform is to increase access to health care.  Frequently overlooked in this effort is finding effective and efficient mechanisms for determining eligibility and enrolling those who are eligible for existing public programs, primarily Medicaid and the the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

How can recruitment and enrollment be streamlined? How can enrollment in public programs affect states’ budgets?  To answer these questions and others, the Alliance for Health Reform and PhRMA sponsored a December 1 briefing.
