Child Health Program Plus

Health care for your child with no monthly premium charge for you

Child Health Program Plus

Información en español aquí.

You want your children to get a healthy start in life. So do we. But health care, especially regular checkups, can cost a lot.

We can help.

Kaiser Permanente’s Child Health Program Plus is a partnership with participating educational entities within our service area. We offer health coverage to students and their siblings.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible to enroll and remain enrolled, you must meet all of the following requirements:

  • You must live in the service area.
  • Your child must be enrolled in grades K–12 (not to exceed age 19) at a participating educational entity. Siblings ages 3–6 are also eligible.
  • You must have an annual household income at or below 350 percent of the applicable federal poverty level.
  • You must not be currently eligible for or enrolled in another private or public health plan (including Oregon Medicaid) or another Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Northwest health plan.
  • You must not be eligible for Medicare or Medicaid benefits.

What about parents?

You are not eligible for the Child Health Program Plus, but you may be eligible for other coverage with a monthly premium.

More than pills and shots

We recognize that good health starts early in life with nutrition, plenty of exercise, and activities that build the mind and spirit as well as the body. Our regular checkups help your child grow and thrive. And we provide immunizations at no cost to prevent major childhood illnesses.
