Children's Health Insurance (CHIP)

There are a lot of reasons why kids or teens might not have health insurance —maybe their parents lost a job, don't have health insurance at work, or maybe other options just cost too much. 

Whatever the reason, if your child or teen is uninsured and ineligible for or enrolled in Medical Assistance, the Children's Health Insurance Program — or CHIP — may be able to help. Having high-quality, low-cost health insurance helps put your mind at ease.
