Leveraging CHIP HSIs to Respond to COVID-19

This brief provides an overview of Children Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Health Services Initiatives (HSIs) and identifies ways that states can leverage them as part of their targeted response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis continues, state Medicaid and CHIP agencies are rapidly pursuing multiple financing strategies to support their responses. CHIP HSIs can provide additional financial support to states and local communities serving low income children.
