Children in Texas without health insurance may be able to get low cost or no cost health coverage from the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). El Paso First CHIP helps you to keep your children healthy and happy.
The CHIP Program covers office visits, prescription drugs, dental care, eye exams, glasses, and much more. Families with children with CHIP pay no more than $50 a year for health care coverage. Some families with CHIP also may need to pay co-pays for some services.
CHIP is for children ages 18 and younger who are residents of Texas.
