CMS Releases 2019 Medicaid Child and Adult Datasets

Share this page

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) most recent data, featuring the most frequently reported measures for children and adults supported by Medicaid, could be of interest to members who keep track of trends across the full range of Medicaid programs. ANCOR has monitored this dataset, which does not directly address disability supports but does discuss long-term supports and services, because it is part of the Trump Administration’s longstanding focus on levering quality measures in Medicaid.

As announced by CMS:

“The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Federal Fiscal Year 2019 Medicaid & Children’s Health Insurance Program Data Set on Medicaid.gov.  The release this year provides information on 23 frequently reported child measures and 25 frequently reported adult measures voluntarily reported by states.  

CMS is also adding a new resource outlining the purpose of the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Child and Adult Core Sets and the annual process used to update the core sets.   Please see the links below for the full set of Child and Adult Core Set reporting resources:
