As the 2006-2007 school year starts, I have just received updated information about the expansion of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The expansion of CHIP is made possible under the Governor's initiative called " Cover All Kids". I am attaching flyers that can be distributed to the student population.
Parents should be encouraged to call 1-866-712-CHIP or visit www.chipcoverspakids.comif:
They think they earn too much money to qualify for CHIP.
They were denied CHIP coverage in the past because their income was too high.
Their children are uninsured, even if it's been a short period of time.
Expanded coverage is expected to begin in January of 2007, but in order to begin evaluating eligibility, we need to identify potential children now.
