Yesterday HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that $6,473,416 was awarded to Montana for ensuring more children have health coverage. The performance bonus payments are funded under the children’s health insurance program re-authorization act, one of the first pieces of legislation signed into law by President Obama in 2009. To qualify for these bonus payments, states must surpass a specified Medicaid enrollment target. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services Acting Administrator Marilyn Tavenner says there is nothing more important to our future then the health of our children.
