The Urban League hopes to inform the community about CHIP's comprehensive health care benefits, including routine doctor visits, immunizations, prescriptions, dental, eye care, hospital stays and more, available to all uninsured Pennsylvania children and teens who qualify for CHIP. To accomplish this goal, we are hosting Open House Clinics where we'll assist parents in enrolling their children in this free/low-cost health insurance program. Please RSVP to: 215-985-3220 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
CHIP offers affordable, comprehensive health care coverage to all Pennsylvania uninsured children and teens up to age 19. It offers coverage for services including doctors' visits, hospital care, prescription drugs, vision, dental and home health care. Many families do not have to pay for CHIP. Premiums are affordable for all families because the premium payment is on a sliding scale based on the families' income. There is no cost for families who qualify for free CHIP. More information on the CHIP program can be found by calling 1-800-986-KIDS or by visiting http://www.chipcoverspakids.com .
