Millions of children belonging to low-income families receive comprehensive health care coverage through the Children’s Health Insurance Program, otherwise known as CHIP. This is a federal insurance program specifically geared toward children younger than 19 years of age who would otherwise not have access to health insurance. CHIP helps families receive health care coverage for their kids when their income is too low for private insurance, but too high to qualify for Medicaid. In some states, pregnant women can also enroll in CHIP for themselves and/or for their unborn child. Learn more about CHIP by downloading our free guide.
