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).
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:

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