Who are we?

The Partnership for Healthier Idaho Kids is dedicated to increasing the enrollment of underserved Idaho children and teens in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It is a project of Mountain States Group, Inc.

The purpose of our project is to reach out to groups of children where significant gaps in health coverage exist, through a partnership with the Idaho Primary Care Association (IPCA) and Idaho’s Community Health Centers. We aim to find and assist Idaho children who are eligible but unenrolled in the Idaho CHIP/Medicaid Program (also called the “Idaho Health Plan for Children”), and we are focused on reaching out to rural and underserved populations, with a particular emphasis on Idaho’s Hispanic children.

This project is funded by a Cycle II CHIPRA Outreach & Enrollment Grant Award from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), through funding set aside in the CHIP Reauthorization Act (2009).
