Drive for Children's Health Insurance Program

While shopping at Payless Shoesource on 106 North University Saturday many parents took advantage of the application drive for the Children's Health Insurance Program or CHIP. CHIP is a federally funded program designed to assist the 8.1 million low-income American children who currently go without health insurance. CHIP aims to provide for children whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but too little to afford private health insurance.

If you missed Saturday's registration and would like to see if your child qualifies you can contact the CHIP program at 1-877-KIDS-NOW or 1-877-543-7669.
