How to Apply for the Community Health Access Program – Important Deadlines

There’s a deadline to apply for health care coverage no matter what time of year you apply. Enrollment into the Community Health Access Program is limited; Kaiser Permanente reserves the right to stop accepting new enrollments at any time without prior notice.

Open Enrollment 2024

CHAP is open from November 1 to January 15 to new applicants. During that period, those eligible for the program must enroll through a CHAP Navigator

Visit the get help page and contact the nearest CHAP Navigator for assistance.


To learn more about the Kaiser Permanente MD Gold Value 0/20/Vision plan or VA Gold 0/20/Vision plan benefits, check out the Summary of Benefits and Coverage to see key features of the plan. You can also get a paper copy at any time without charge by calling Member Services at 1-800-777-7902 (TTY 711). Copays listed in these documents won’t apply for most care at KP facilities when you’re enrolled in CHAP.

* Continued eligibility for the CHAP is not guaranteed. We reserve the right to close enrollment or change the CHAP eligibility rules at any time. If you are approved for the CHAP subsidy, the subsidy period is limited, and we will contact you in the future to confirm that you still qualify.
