How much do I have to earn to qualify for CHIP or Medicaid?
- Find your family size on the left side of this chart. Follow that row to the right.
- Is your family’s income less than the monthly income shown in the blue Medicaid section?* If so, your children might get Medicaid.
- If your income is higher, follow the row to the dark blue CHIP section. Your children might get CHIP if your income is less than the monthly income shown in the dark blue column. Children of families that earn higher incomes may also qualify in some cases.
