Your application should be processed in about four to six weeks. After your kids are approved for CHIP, coverage will usually start on the first day of the next month. For example, if you receive approval on June 15, coverage would generally start July 1.

You may also contact the CHIP health insurance company you selected when you applied.
If you applied for CHIP more than 30 days ago and haven’t received a response, please contact the CHIP health insurance company where you sent your application.
If you applied for CHIP more than 30 days ago and don’t know which CHIP insurance company received your application, find a CHIP health insurance company in your county. If your county has more than one CHIP insurance company, call each company to locate your application and check the status.
