CHIP program, under the auspices of the WV Healthy Kids Coalition,
is to ensure that no child, from birth to 18, be without insurance.
Children may be eligible to be covered for medical services, surgery,
durable medical equipment and supplies, prescription drugs, and
vision and dental service. Even though income guidelines may not
be met, families may still be eligible for the coverage by paying
a reduce premium. The only way to be sure if a child is eligible
is to apply. CHIP is an insurance program administered by the
Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR).
