BATON ROUGE- Louisiana is awarded $3.5 million for making progress in enrolling uninsured children in Medicaid. Our State is one of 15, to share $206 million.

Funding for the "performance bonuses" was included in the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization (CHIPRA) legislation signed into law by President Obama earlier this year. The CHIPRA established two sets of performance goals that states must meet to qualify for a bonus, to make it easier for families with eligible children to get Medicaid coverage.

Other states to receive the bonus include Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Washington state and Wisconsin.
