Who is eligible for children’s CHIP/Medicaid in Idaho?

To be eligibility for the children’s CHIP/Medicaid program in Idaho, a child or teen must meet three requirements:

  1. Age – a child must be under 19 years old
  2. Citizenship / Legal Residency Status – a child must be a U.S. Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident
  3. Income – the child’s family income must be within certain income limits

As part of our program, we have created a basic eligibility checklist for this process, which can be accessed here:

We’ll get into more detail on eligibility in the next few posts.
