Coverage any family can afford.

Looking to enroll in CHIP coverage?

CHIP and GHP Kids are here for you

For most families, medical coverage for kids through the Pennsylvania Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is free. For others, it’s low-cost. The cost of coverage is determined by your family size and household income. Either way, CHIP benefits are the same for all. No family makes too much money for CHIP coverage. Even if you’re insured, you can still get your child’s health insurance through CHIP.

Pennsylvania CHIP, brought to you by GHP Kids, offers comprehensive coverage, including:

  • Doctor visits
  • Routine checkups 
  • Dental, vision and hearing services
  • Emergency and hospital care
  • Prescription medications

Who qualifies for CHIP?

To be eligible, your child must be: 

  • Under the age of 19 
  • A Pennsylvania resident 
  • A U.S. citizen, U.S. national or qualified alien 
  • Uninsured and not eligible for or covered by Medical Assistance
