Reporting on Continuity of Coverage for Children in Medicaid and CHIP: What States Can Learn from Monitoring Continuity and Duration of CoverageThe Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) requires states to measure and report on coverage stability in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
