CMS Refreshes Medicaid and CHIP Scorecard
Posted on Friday, July 19, 2019 8:47 PM
This week, CMS refreshed data in the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Medicaid Scorecard. The Scorecard is a key component of the Trump Administration’s commitment to modernizing and strengthening the Medicaid and CHIP programs. These programs provide health coverage to more than 72 million Americans at a cost to taxpayers of over $558 billion a year. The Scorecard allows every American to see how well the Medicaid and CHIP programs are improving the lives of beneficiaries. It also ensures the efficient use of taxpayer dollars so that those who administer state Medicaid and CHIP programs can be held accountable for the program’s performance.
“Everyone – whether you are a beneficiary, taxpayer, or lawmaker – deserves to understand the performance of our nation’s largest health coverage programs and often the largest state expenses,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “More and more states are voluntarily reporting their health outcomes in the Scorecard, and the new data is leading us into an era of increased transparency and accountability, so that together we can improve the quality of care we give to the vulnerable Americans that depend on this vital program.”
