ABOUT CHIP

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.
