What is the Child Health Program?
The Child Health Program (CHP) provides health coverage for children and young adults who don’t have access to other health coverage. CHP members pay no monthly premiums and have no out-of-pocket costs for most care at Kaiser Permanente facilities.
Who is eligible for CHP?
You may qualify for CHP if:
- You live in a Kaiser Permanente service area.
- You’re 18 and under.
- Your household income is no more than 3 times the federal poverty level (for example, up to $38,640 for a single person or $79,500 for a family of 4 in 2021).
You don’t need to be U.S. citizens to qualify for CHP.
*Continued eligibility for the Child Health Program is not guaranteed. We reserve the right to close enrollment or change the CHP eligibility rules at any time. If you are approved for CHP, the subsidy period is limited and we will contact you in the future to confirm that you still qualify.
