Abstract

This paper presents a case study of the efforts by one state (Arizona) to increase Children's Health Insurance Program enrollment through outreach projects funded by private foundations. Barriers to enrollment include the organization of the Children's Health Insurance Program and perceptions of parents. The most successful outreach either involves intensive personal contact or is connected with a health care provider agency. The paper concludes by discussing how the barriers and successful outreach strategies in Arizona can be generalized to other states and can inform Children's Health Insurance Program outreach broadly.
