CHIP Children's Health Insurance Program
CHIP is short for the Children's Health Insurance Program, Pennsylvania's program to provide health insurance to 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 other options just cost too much. Whatever the reason, CHIP may be able to help.
NINE OUT OF 10 CHIP parents report satisfaction with their child's health plan, and 96 PERCENT received an appointment for checkups and vaccinations as soon as they wanted.
