    The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provides health services for uninsured children whose parents are low-income, but make too much money to qualify for Medicaid. It is meant to give medical services to children who, for no fault of their own, can't afford to seek medical services.

    Obamacare expanded the CHIP program and it is now easier than ever to see if your child qualifies for CHIP.

    There are two ways to apply for CHIP.

    1) Visit and select the state you reside in. You can also call 1-877-543-7669.

    2) You can fill out an application through the Health Insurance Marketplace. If you qualify for CHIP then the Federal Government will send that information to your state and they will then contact you about enrolling your child in the program.

    Whatever way you apply, it doesn't hurt to see if you can get some help making sure your child receives medical care without hurting your bottom line.
