If your kids need health insurance, CHIP is worth looking into. CHIP stands for the Pennsylvania’s Children’s Health Insurance Program. CHIP covers everything from doctor visits, immunizations, emergency care, prescriptions, dental and eye care, glasses and more.
Chip covers uninsured kids up to age 19 in Pennsylvania, no matter the reason they are uninsured. Most kids receive CHIP for free, others can get the same benefits at a low cost. If your income is below CHIP guidelines, your child may be enrolled in Medical Assistance.
To apply or renew benefits, contact CHIPcoversPAkids.com or call 800-986-kids.
