Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide critical support to the some of the most vulnerable members of our society–children, pregnant women, people with disabilities, and older adults. The program also faces long-standing challenges that will require increased understanding and innovative approaches. Federal agencies and state Medicaid directors say that acquiring needed funding is only the beginning of the issues they see as top priorities for their programs, from addressing the rise in opioid and substance use disorders to meeting unaddressed mental health needs and improving health equity. State Medicaid directors say they need evidence and robust data analytics to help inform policy recommendations in real-time. Abt is at the forefront of this work, helping partners and clients address short-term challenges holistically, with long-term change in mind.
