Medicaid and CHIP
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 and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
Some states have expanded their Medicaid programs to cover all people below certain income levels.

Connecting Kids to Coverage
Connecting Kids to Coverage is a national campaign of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to reach and enroll eligible kids and teens in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Millions of children are eligible for free or low-cost health insurance under these programs, but are not enrolled. And, in some states, more parents may be eligible too. Help spread the word that enrollment in these programs is open year-round. You can call 1-855-313-KIDS (5437) or visit http://www.insurekidsnow.gov for more information.
