On July 18, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) updated the data within the Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Scorecard. The Scorecard, released for the first time last year, is a component of the Trump Administration’s effort to modernize and strengthen the Medicaid and CHIP programs. It includes measures reported voluntarily by states, as well as federally reported measures relating to state health system performance, state administrative accountability and federal administrative accountability.
CMS is working to enhance the functionality of the Scorecard, with an update to be posted in the fall of 2019.
