    Do I Qualify

    Use the chart to find out if your children may be able to get CHIP or Medicaid. Find your family size on the left side of this chart.

    Follow that row to the right. Is your family's monthly income less than the amount shown on the right side? If so, your children may be able to get Medicaid or CHIP. Children of families that earn higher incomes may still be able to get health coverage in some cases. Call us if you have questions.
