States that chose to create their own programs had flexibility to devise plans that operated more like private sector plans and less like Medicaid. However, they still had to adhere to certain federal standards with respect to administration, eligibility, benefits, cost sharing, reporting requirements, and protections against fraud. The benefit compromise, while allowing state plans to operate more like private sector plans, nevertheless required comprehensive benefits. Further, a number of benefits were specifically required and others explicitly prohibited.
22 The rule also required parents who dropped children from their health insurance coverage to wait six months before enrolling them in the CHIP program in order to discourage them from dropping their private insurance to join the CHIP program. States were also restricted by a host of other laws and court rulings. 24 Further, eligibility based on residency requirements was limited by the Supreme Court decision in Shapiro v. Thompson, which prohibited waiting periods on new arrivals to the state.
The rulemaking process was an ongoing political struggle to clarify ambiguity in the statute, and it even added provisions, like the patient’s bill of rights, that were not in the statute. Again, a very different program could have emerged if the rule were written by a different administration with different priorities. In this way, presidential elections directly influence how programs are ultimately shaped and structured. If CHIP rules had been written during the George W. Bush administration, states would have been given more power—for example, to limit benefit plans.
