PA Chip Program
What is CHIP?
CHIP is short for the Children's Health Insurance Program - Pennsylvania's program to provide health insurance to all uninsured children and teens who are not eligible for or enrolled in Medical Assistance. There are a lot of reasons kids might not have health insurance - maybe their parents lost a job, don't have health insurance at work or maybe it just costs too much. Whatever the reason, CHIP may be able to help. All families need to to is apply today.
Okay, so what's Cover All Kids?
Cover All Kids is the initiative that lead to the expansion of the CHIP program. With Cover All Kids, all uninsured children and teens in the commonwealth who are not eligible for Medical Assistance now have access to affordable, comprehensive health-care coverage. Now, no family makes too much money for CHIP. It's the same great program, now available to all families. All families need to to is apply today.
I thought CHIP was only for low-income families?
Parents may think their kids can't get CHIP because they make too much money. Not true! CHIP has expanded to cover all uninsured kids and teens up to age 19 who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. No family makes too much money for CHIP because there is no income limit.
