Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

What is CHIP?

The Children’s Health Insurance Program – formerly known as the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) – is a program created in 1997 and administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CHIP provides low-cost health coverage to children in families with incomes too high to qualify for Medicaid. Each state offers CHIP coverage, but states have flexibility with eligibility requirements.
