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:
- Live in the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic States, Inc. service area, excluding the District of Columbia
- Live in a household with an income up to 300% of the federal poverty level
- Can’t be eligible for other public or private health coverage such as, but not limited to, Medicaid, Medicare, a job-based health plan, or financial help through the Maryland Health Connection.
You don’t need to be U.S. citizens to qualify for the Community Health Access Program.
