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

  • Your child must meet certain qualifications. Your child must be under the age of 19, be a US citizen or a legal resident and be uninsured. In addition, your household income can be no greater than 200% of the federal poverty level. For a family of 3, this works out to an annual income of about $31,340, or a monthly income of about $2,612.
  • If eligible, your child will have comprehensive coverage to enrollees. Comprehensive coverage includes doctor visits, hospital care, prescriptions, mental health services, preventive well-child exams, immunizations, and vision services.
  • You may have to contribute to help pay for your child’s CHIP coverage. Depending on your income, you may have to pay a small monthly premium. In addition, you will have to pay a small co-payment for each service that your child needs.
