Send Your Children Back to School with Health Coverage
Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide free or low-cost health coverage to millions of Americans, including some low-income people, families with children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
If your children need health coverage, they may be eligible for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHIP provides low-cost health coverage to children in families that earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid. Each state offers CHIP coverage, and works closely with its state Medicaid program. You can apply for and enroll in Medicaid or CHIP any time of year. There’s no limited enrollment period for either Medicaid or CHIP. If you qualify, your coverage can start immediately.
Some benefits covered through CHIP include:
- Routine check-ups
- Doctor visits
- Dental and vision care
- Inpatient and outpatient hospital care
- Laboratory and X-ray services
- Emergency services
ACCESS FOR ALL
Kenosha Community Health Center provides access to medical and dental care to over 15,000 patients through a team staffed with Doctors, Dentists, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, and Hygienists. We accept most forms of insurance and many of our patients have Medicaid, but we see our community member regardless of their ability to pay by assisting them in signing up for Medicaid or discount your services based on your income.
