CHIP Enrollment is the average monthly enrollment of children (age 0 to 18.9) in the Children’ Health Insurance Program.
Kansas Health Institute's analysis of Medicaid/CHIP data on the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's Data Analytic Interface.
The effect of the 2010 Kansas CHIP expansion (income up to 250% of 2008 FPL) can be seen in the recent increase of CHIP enrollment. CHIP income eligible children are those who lived in families with income <200% FPL in 2009, <=240% FPL in 2010 (or 250% of 2008 FPL), < 230% FPL in 2011 or 2012, < 225% in 2013, <245% in 2014, and <247% in 2015, and are not income eligible for Medicaid. Population and income data are from American Community Survey 1-year public use micro-data sample. Please note that CHIP income eligible children may be enrolled in CHIP, Medicaid or other private or public insurance coverage, or uninsured. ACA expands children age 6-18 Medicaid eligibility to 133%, therefore effecting July 1, 2015, the formerly 113%-133% CHIP eligible now converted to "M-CHIP" eligible, M-CHIP is medicaid and no longer CHIP (but applying the enhanced CHIP federal matching rate). The decrease of CHIP enrollment in CY 2016 may be explained by the M-CHIP conversion.
