Renewing UPMC for Kids CHIP Coverage

We must review your child’s eligibility for CHIP health care coverage every year. Ninety days before your child’s coverage ends, we will send you a letter asking you to provide updated information. If you do not provide this information, your child’s health care coverage may end.

If we find that your income makes you eligible for Medical Assistance (Medicaid) through the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, we will send your application to the local County Assistance Office. It will evaluate your application and see if you qualify. We will let you know that we have done this, and we will tell you what the next steps are.

Notifying Us of Changes during Renewal

Please be sure to report any changes in your family’s circumstances, such as address, phone number, household income, or the number of members in your family. Also, if your child is covered or becomes covered by private health insurance, you must notify us immediately, as your child will no longer be eligible for the CHIP program and will be dis-enrolled from UPMC for Kids.
