Child Health Program


      A healthy future starts today


      Your child’s health helps shape his or her future because health affects everything from physical and emotional well-being to academic performance. By enrolling your child in Kaiser Permanente Child Health Program, you can ensure that your child receives the health care he or she needs to thrive. Depending on your family size and income, your monthly payment amount may be just $0 or $10 or $20 per child, for up to three children. Additional children are covered at no additional cost.

      Kaiser Permanente Child Health Program (CHP) is a Community Benefit (CB) program that provides a Kaiser Permanente premium subsidy to lower your child’s monthly payment amounts associated with:

      •Enrollment in the KP CA Platinum 0/20 health coverage plan
      •Enrollment in the DeltaCare® USA Plan 85 for Children

      This program also lowers cost sharing for covered services provided at Kaiser Permanente medical offices and hospitals to $0*. Please note that you will still have copayments for dental services regardless of where covered services are provided.

      *If services are not provided at Kaiser Permanente medical offices and hospitals, you will be responsible for the full cost sharing amounts.

      To learn more about Child Health Program and to see if your child qualifies, view the eligibility guidelines. For an application and instructions, visit the Apply Now tab. To receive assistance completing your application, which is highly recommended, please contact a community agency closest to you for help.)

      We need your application in our office by March 31, 2014 or we will not be able to process it. Please allow enough time for the post office to deliver your application.

      Other Coverage Options

      If your child is not eligible for Kaiser Permanente Child Health Program, you can still enroll him or her in a Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Families (KPIF) plan, but you will have to pay to the full price of the premium. You can enroll your child in a KPIF plan as long you live in one of the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. service areas.
