How States Can Take Advantage of the New Medicaid Performance Bonus

The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured is issuing a series of briefs on how states can be eligible for the
new "performance bonus" available to states that do an especially good job of signing up eligible children for Medicaid. The bonus, created by a provision in the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (SCHIP), is designed to help states cover the added costs that result when states are very successful in enrolling eligible children in Medicaid above target levels specified in the law. It reflects an understanding that aggressive state outreach efforts for CHIP tend also to drive up enrollment in state Medicaid programs.
