Could your child be eligible for Medicaid or KCHIP benefits?
Children need health insurance – even when they are not sick.
Check-ups and well child visits help keep children healthy.
To make sure every child can apply for medical benefits, the Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program (KCHIP) has a new mail-in application.
If you would like to apply for medical benefits for your child, we can help you by sending you an application.
Although the application cannot be submitted by telephone, you can call us and we will talk you through the application while you fill it out or you can come in person and we will help you complete the application at your convenience.
Or, you can get a mail-in application by calling toll free 1-877-524-4718 or by logging onto the KCHIP website.
Fill the application out and attach the documents we ask you to provide and we will see if your child can get medical benefits.
You will not have to come to the office unless we cannot get all the information we need through the mail.
