What is CHIP?

The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is health care for children 0-18 years. CHIP is for families that make too much money to get Medicaid. Enrollment fees are $50 or less per family, per year. Co-pays range from $3-$35 depending on income. CHIP children have health care for 12 months. Parents must re-enroll every 12 months for coverage to continue.
