What is the Community Health Access Program?
The Community Health Access Program (CHAP) provides health coverage for adults and dependent children who don’t have access to other health coverage. Community Health Access Program (CHAP) members receive financial help paying monthly premiums and have no out-of-pocket costs for most care at Kaiser Permanente facilities.
Who is eligible for CHAP?
You or your family may qualify if you live in a Kaiser Permanente service area and meet these requirements:
- Reside in Maryland or Virginia
- Live in a household with an income of no more than 300% of the Federal Poverty Level
- Have no access to any other private, public or employer-based health care or coverage
You don’t need to be U.S. citizens to qualify for the Community Health Access Program.
