DHS Welcomes CHIP Families

DHS oversees CHIP in Pennsylvania, and starting April 17, 2023, DHS will begin handling all applications, renewals, case updates, and eligibility questions for CHIP families. Your CHIP coverage will not change – you will still be able to pick a CHIP plan that best meets your child(ren)’s needs. DHS will review and manage CHIP health insurance as another form of health care alongside Medical Assistance (MA).
