Eligibility Requirements for Low-Cost Health Insurance for Children

One of the more prominent low-cost health insurance plans for children is Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP. As long as the child is younger than 18 years old and a U.S. citizen, his or her eligibility requirements are generally based on family income relative to the size of the family. The following items are considered for income:

  • Wages
  • Self-employment funds
  • Unemployment
  • Veterans Administration benefits
  • Social Security benefits
  • Child support
  • Alimony

Here at HealthMarkets Insurance Agency, we can help you determine the eligibility of your child for CHIP while also helping you consider any other options you might have. As a business, it is our mission to make insurance shopping easy, so you can focus on the important things in life. That’s why we offer personalized assistance by phone at (800) 360-1402 or in person at no charge to you.
