Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed state and private efforts to insure children who are not eligible for Medicaid and whose parents cannot purchase private insurance, focusing on: (1) enrollment, costs, funding sources, and annual budgets of these state and private programs; (2) state strategies to manage costs while providing children access to health care; and (3) program design elements that have facilitated program implementation.
