Program Description

The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is a non-entitlement program in Washington state. Eligibility is determined using the same rules as Medicaid for children, except with higher income standards. Children who are eligible for Medicaid, or who have any “creditable health coverage”, cannot be eligible for CHIP. (“Creditable health coverage” means coverage under a group health plan or other health insurance that provides access to physicians, hospitals, laboratory services, and radiology services).

Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of Washington, under 19 years of age or be a primary care giver with a child under the age of 19, not covered by health insurance (including Medicaid), and a U.S. national, citizen, or legally present alien.

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $36,420
2 $49,380
3 $62,340
4 $75,300
5 $88,260
6 $101,220
7 $114,180
8 $127,140

*For households with more than eight people, add $12,960 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.

There is a small monthly premium cost for coverage. Please see this state’s program information for details.
