KidzPartners Eligibility Guidelines

KidzPartners is the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) plan offered by Health Partners Plans (HPP). Children must meet the following requirements to be eligible for KidzPartners:

  • Pennsylvania resident
  • U.S. citizen, U.S. national or qualified alien
  • Under age 19
  • Currently uninsured and not eligible for Medical Assistance

If your children are eligible for KidzPartners, your family’s income will determine whether your child may be enrolled on a free, low-cost or full-cost basis. All members receive the same benefits and comprehensive, quality coverage regardless of income.

  • There are no premiums or copays in the free KidzPartners program.
  • If your child is enrolled for low-cost or full-cost coverage, you will be required to pay monthly premiums and copays for some benefits and services.
