Getting an estimate
The GHP Kids Member Handbook provides a full description of benefits and services available to CHIP-eligible children and teens.
The following chart can help you determine what cost (if any) is associated with CHIP coverage for your child or teen:
- In the Income section, locate the number of people in your household.
- Find the range that matches the age of your children and your household’s annual gross income.
- Look down the row in the Cost section to see the approximate, average monthly premium cost per child and copayments for doctor visits, drugs, and more.
Example: A five-person household with an annual gross income (that’s income before taxes) of $75,000 will have an average monthly premium of $85 per child, plus copayments for any visits, drugs, ER visits, etc.
What does GHP Kids cost?
Depending on your family's income, most children are covered for free or at a low cost.
