Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)


Not all Texas CHIP plans are alike. With ours, your child gets extras that other plans don’t offer. View the list of benefits below to see all that our plan covers. It’s for children and young adults up to age 20, and pregnant women who don’t qualify for Medicaid. We also offer additional services called Value Added Services (VAS). View the list below to see what CHIP includes.
