Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) Performance Bonus Payments Received by States

In the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA), Congress appropriated $3.2 billion for qualifying States to receive performance bonus payments for Federal fiscal years 2009 through 2013 to offset the costs of increased enrollment of children in Medicaid. Errors in calculating enrollment could result in improper payments to States. OIG has issued several reports identifying millions of dollars in unallowable bonus payments made to States. One State miscalculated its current enrollment, and other States included individuals in their current enrollment who should not have been included. We will determine whether the bonus payments received by States were allowable in accordance with Federal requirements.
