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. Regardless of the reasons your children might not have health insurance, CHIP may be able to help you.
CHIP is brought to you by leading private health insurance companies who offer quality, comprehensive coverage. CHIP covers routine checkups, prescriptions, hospitalization, dental, eye care, and more. Most kids receive CHIP for free. Others can get the same benefits at a low cost.
