CCF Updates Brief on Waiting Periods for Children

CCF: The Georgetown Center for Children and Families updated a policy brief on CHIP waiting periods for children who were previously insured. The brief found that 20 states eliminated their waiting periods and 7 states lowered their waiting periods to 90 days or less as a result of ACA-related regulations. The policy brief highlights the impact of waiting periods on health coverage, costs, and administrative efficiencies.
