Health Reform: Helping Children Transition from CHIP to Medicaid

PHLP along with Community Legal Services, the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children and Public Citizens for Children and Youth have made a set of recommendations to assure a smooth transition for children moving from CHIP to Medicaid. Under the Affordable Care Act, children ages 6 to 19 with family income between 100 and 133% of the federal poverty level will be eligible for Medicaid effective January 1, 2014. Children now enrolled in CHIP will transition to Medicaid and will need assistance in maintaining their health care providers, their care plans and their medical home.
