GAO: Medicaid, CHIP Falling Short in Care Coordination
Many children enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program encounter difficulty accessing care coordination services, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. The report found that 45% of children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP needed care coordination in 2007. Of those children, 37% did not receive care coordination services.
