The Wyoming Kid Care (CHIP) Program is a state-designated program that provides health insurance to low-income children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who have no health insurance.
- A child whose family has a household income up to 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL) is eligible for the Wyoming Kid Care (CHIP) Program. For a family of three, this works out to an annual income of up to $34,200 or a gross monthly income of $2,767.
Financial eligibility criteria limits are adjusted annually to reflect increases in cost of living.
- The Wyoming Kid Care (CHIP) Program does not impose a pre-existing condition exclusion period. If a family meets the eligibility guidelines, a child’s pre-existing medical condition does not exclude him from coverage.
- The Wyoming Kid Care (CHIP) Program provides comprehensive coverage to enrollees including doctor’s visits, hospital care, prescriptions, mental health, dental, vision and hearing services.
