The Children’s Coverage Technical Advisory Group (CCTAG) was established to provide a forum for open dialogue and policy discussion, and for states and territories to offer CMS feedback on issues related to children’s health coverage in Medicaid and CHIP. Meetings address technical and operational issues related to Medicaid and CHIP policy, enrollment, EPSDT, quality measurement, health outcomes, and financing, with a focus on learning and sharing best practices across states. 

The CCTAG also helps to inform and advise CMCS as it develops policy and prepares guidance on issues impacting children’s coverage. The presentations aim to identify challenges states are facing and develop strategies to address and resolve these issues, review operational policies, and facilitate discussion amongst state Medicaid and CHIP programs.
