If your family is uninsured but makes too much money to qualify for Medicaid, you may qualify for CHIP, depending on age of child(ren), insurance status, household income level, residency and other eligibility requirements.
Depending on their income, many families will get free health coverage for their children and teens. Other families may be required to pay a modest enrollment fee or premiums, and copayments for specific services. The rest of the coverage is paid for by the federal government and your state.
Much like the “essential health benefits,” South Carolina must provide at least the following benefits under the Children’s Health Insurance Program: Routine checkips Immunizations Doctor visits Prescriptions Dental and vision care Inpatient and outpatient hospital care Lab and X-ray services Emergency services
Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide no-cost or low-cost health coverage for eligible children in South Carolina. These programs provide health coverage for children so that they can get routine check-ups, immunizations and dental care to keep them healthy.
