UnitedHealthcare Community Plan for Kids

Children's Health Plan (CHIP)

www.chipcoverspakids.com

CHIP, brought to you by UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, is short for the Children's Health Insurance Program. The CHIP program provides health insurance to uninsured children and teens.

There are a lot of reasons kids might not have health insurance – maybe their parents lost a job, maybe their parents don't have health insurance at work or maybe it just costs too much. Whatever the reason, CHIP may be able to help.

You might think that your children or teens aren't eligible. A lot of parents are surprised to learn that CHIP can help their families. If you qualify, you can get CHIP for free or for a small monthly payment. Either way, no cost or low cost, there are no co-payments or deductibles.
