DHS’ Office of Children’s Health Insurance Program, CHIP, is recognized as a national model for children’s health coverage. CHIP provides free or low-cost health insurance for families. The program provides health insurance to uninsured children and teens who are not eligible for or enrolled in Medical Assistance. CHIP is available for families whose income is above 133 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL). Parents may think their children are not eligible for CHIP because they make too much money. This simply isn’t true! CHIP covers uninsured kids and teens up to age 19 who are not eligible for Medical Assistance.
