The Covering Kids & Families (CKF) National Program Office at the Southern Institute on Children and Families is pleased to release a report, titled Covering Kids & Families: Promising practices from the nation's single largest effort to insure eligible children and adults through public health coverage. CKF Promising Practices features CKF statewide and local coalition promising practices related to the CKF strategies of outreach, simplification and coordination, and includes process improvement examples from CKF project participation in the Southern Institute's Eligibility Process Improvement Collaboratives.
The promising practices included in this report provide information on a variety of approaches to reduce the number of children and adults who are eligible for, but not enrolled in Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and each write-up includes contact information for those seeking additional information. CKF Promising Practices is intended to assist Medicaid and SCHIP officials, federal, state and local policymakers, health care providers, schools, businesses, child advocates, Medicaid and SCHIP eligibility workers, legal service workers and others invested in ensuring health coverage for lower-income children and families.
