Maryland Children's Health Program (MCHP) Disenrollee Survey
October 02, 2002
During fiscal years 2000 and 2001, 40,000 children were disenrolled from the Maryland Children's Health Program. This occurred at a time when states were actively working to increase enrollment in SCHIP programs. This survey of Maryland families whose children were disenrolled from the program examines a variety of retention and enrollment issues, including why families withdrew from the program, their perception of the program, and barriers to families seeking to continue enrollment.
