The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) might be crowding out a little bit of private health coverage, but probably not that much, and it’s helped many children get health coverage.

Sheila Hoag and other researchers give that assessment of CHIP in a report submitted by Mathematica Policy Research Inc., Princeton, N.J., to Congress.

about 10% of the total, from 11.4 million, or 15% of the total, Hoag and her colleagues write.

State CHIP plans enrolled 7.7 million children at some point in fiscal year 2010, and about 90% of those children were in families with family incomes under 200% of the federal poverty level.
