What is KCHIP?
KCHIP’s mission is to provide low cost health insurance coverage to low income, uninsured children younger than 19 in Kentucky. The K-CHIP staff understands that access to health care is very important and that preventive care is a large part of health care. Immunizations, well child checkups, and other preventive services help children get and stay healthy. For example, a family of four can earn up to $50,801 a year and qualify for KCHIP for their children under 19 years of age.
