Help your kids start the school year strong with health coverage

Published on August 22, 2014

Help your kids start the new school year strong by making sure they get the health coverage they need. With Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), they can get check-ups, immunizations, eye exams, and other care they need to participate in classroom and after-school activities.
These programs offer free or low-cost health coverage for kids and teens up to age 19. And parents may be eligible for Medicaid too.

Apply any time of year

You can apply for and enroll in Medicaid or CHIP any time of year. If you qualify, your coverage can begin immediately. Enroll now. Why wait?
