Chip and Medical Insurance Program for Children: The last two years have been stressful for everyone, especially our kids. Not only has their physical health been affected by this global pandemic, but so has their social and emotional well-being.

It is more important than ever for families to have health insurance, so that they can access the medical and behavioral health services their kids and teens need without the worry of mounting medical bills.

Utah Medicaid and CHIP cover more than 230,000 kids statewide. Eligible children can get regular check-ups, immunizations, doctor and dentist visits, hospital care, mental health services, prescriptions, emergency care and more for free or at a reduced cost. Parents shouldn't have to choose between getting groceries and taking their kids to the doctor.
