CHIP SPA Processing Tools for States

As part of a strategy to increase transparency, enhance efficiency, and reduce burden for states in the review and approval process of state plan amendments (SPA), CMS committed to providing a tool kit to assist states in the development of complete submissions, and facilitate quicker adjudication of SPA submissions. This page provides a collection of existing CHIP SPA templates and guides for completing the templates that will be enhanced as more tools are developed.
