Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

The Pennsylvania ACT 84 of 2015 requires that public and nonpublic schools provide notice of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to be shared with every parent or guardian of every student enrolled in the district during the school year on an annual basis.

CHIP covers uninsured kids and teens up to age 19. With more than 139,000 uninsured children in Pennsylvania, this is great news for families!

CHIP provides quality, comprehensive health insurance for routine doctor visits, prescriptions, dental, eye care, eyeglasses, mental health and much more. CHIP covers uninsured kids who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. For most families, CHIP is free – for others, it is low cost.

Please see the CHIP flyer for additional information.
