Montana Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP) is a state-designed program that provides health coverage to low-income Montana children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who have limited or no health insurance.

· A child whose family has a household income below 150% of the federal poverty level is eligible for CHIP. For a family of three, this works out to an annual income of about $27,465, or a monthly income of about $2,289.

· Some families are required to pay a small copayment, ranging from $3 to $25, depending on the service. The total copayment per family per benefit year cannot exceed $215.

· Services include physician and hospital services, prescription drugs, laboratory and radiological services, mental health and substance abuse treatment services, and dental, and vision care.
