There are compelling reasons to consider how the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can be used as a resource to meet the child-specific exchange requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). With support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, NASHP analyzed federal statutes, regulations, and guidance for CHIP and the exchange, and interviewed state and national experts to inform this work. The resulting brief offers options for using CHIP as a tool to inform exchange design and the companion piece compares selected CHIP and exchange requirements to highlight their alignment.
