COVID-19 Information: During the COVID-19 public health emergency, Utah has been granted emergency authority to waive CHIP premiums. CHIP members will not be required to pay their regular quarterly premiums. When the emergency ends, members will be notified when to begin paying their premiums again. Any premiums collected during this emergency period, will be refunded to the member. For more program updates related to the COVID-19 public health emergency, visit the Medicaid website.
The Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, is a state health insurance plan for uninsured Utah kids and teens. Emergency medical costs can quickly break your budget. With CHIP, you’ll have one less thing to worry about. Find out if your family qualifies!
