CHIP provides health insurance coverage to uninsured children whose family income is up to 200 percent of the Federal poverty level (monthly income of $3,067 for a family of four). Children who already have private health insurance may also be eligible for CHIP paying deductibles, co-payments and other medical services not covered by their private policy.
General Program RequirementsIn order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of South Dakota, under 19 years of age, not covered by health insurance (including Medicaid), and a U.S. national, citizen, legal alien, or permanent resident.
