Comment Letter to MACPAC on CHIP

CHA submitted written comments in response to the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission's (MACPAC) discussion of potential children's coverage recommendations at the September public meeting. The letter compliments the public comments CHA delivered during the meeting by providing additional details on what CHA would like to see in MACPAC's final children's coverage recommendation package. The letter thanks Commissioners for looking to recommend a long-term extension of CHIP funding and highlights the importance of also extending the maintenance of effort requirements for children's coverage. The letter also shares the importance of extending pediatric quality funding and CHA's recommendations for improving pediatric quality efforts.
