Maryland gets $36 million bonus for health program enrollment


Recommended Posts


Maryland has received a "$36 million bonus" for its efforts to enroll children in the Medicaid and state's Children's Health Program.

The state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene was informed the state will receive the performance bonus from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for Fiscal Year 2012 due to efforts to identify and enroll children in the medical assistance program.

States receiving bonuses must have at least five programs to promote enrollment and retention in health coverage for children and show "significant" increases in enrollment over the course of the year.

Since January 2007, the number of children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP has increased from 407,300 children to 572,300.

The state received $28.3 million last year for its performance.
