There are compelling reasons to consider how the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can be used as a resource to meet the child-specific exchange requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The resulting brief offers options for using CHIP as a tool to inform exchange design and the companion piece compares selected CHIP and exchange requirements to highlight their alignment.
