What is the Child Health Program?

The Child Health Program (CHP) helps pay for health coverage for children up to age 19 who don’t have access to other health coverage. Child Health Program members receive financial help paying monthly premiums, and have no out-of-pocket costs for most care at Kaiser Permanente facilities.
