CHIP works with families, caught in the cycle of poverty, who are committed to creating a better life for their children and themselves, using proven best practices to intervene early and prepare parents to be their child's first and most important teacher.CHIP’s goals are twofold: to ensure that young children living in low-income families receive consistent, quality health care prenatally through age six; and to provide a family-centered case management system that fosters health, stability, good parenting and self-sufficiency.
CHIP goals ensure that young children living in low-income families receive consistent, quality health care prenatally through age six through a family-centered case management system that fosters health, stability, good parenting, and self-sufficiency.Though CHIP families are at greatest risk of negative life outcomes their outcomes consistently meet or exceed the Healthy People 2020 targets. In FY 2015 CHIP programs served 2,846 families, 3,684 children and 484 pregnant women with more than 21,000 home visits provided. Among children enrolled for a year, 94% have health insurance (vs. 80% at baseline), 95% have a medical home (81% baseline) and 90% are up-to-date or on-track with their immunizations (78% baseline). Outcomes related to self-sufficiency include: 44.3% of families with at least one year of CHIP services have one or both parents employed (compared to 33.8% at enrollment), a 62.5% reduction in the number of families with 2 or more moves during the year and a 34.1% reduction in the number of families with unmet food needs during the year.School readiness begins at birth. Low birth weight can lead to cognitive problems and difficulty in school.In the past 5 years more than 2,000 medically or socially high-risk pregnant women have enrolled in CHIP for an average of 4-9 months. Of those only 12% delivered prematurely and 9% delivered low birth weight babies compared to 20% and 16% respectively among those enrolled for 3 months or less.62.2% of women enrolled before the third trimester initiated breastfeeding with their baby while 42.5% of the third-trimester-enrollees breastfed. A recent evaluation showed that when pregnant women received services tangible savings were identified for the infants during their first year of life. Infants whose mothers participated in the Partners in Pregnancy Program spent 44% fewer days in neonatal intensive care at a savings of $2,300 per infant in medical claims during their first year.
