To keep your children covered, you have to renew every year. It's not automatic. Renewal forms will be sent to you 90 days before your coverage ends.
To renew your coverage, you will need the following information handy:
Renewal Notice from your CHIP insurance company
Income amounts for your entire household before taxes - all forms of income (for example – your paycheck, social security, pension, workers' compensation, unemployment, etc.)
Social Security Numbers and
birthdates for all applicants
Private health insurance information (if you have or had private health insurance in the last 90 days)
There are several ways you can renew your child's CHIP insurance:
RENEW ONLINE WITH COMPASS
To renew online using COMPASS, you will need your UFI, member ID and renewal month. You can find all of this information in the renewal letter you received in the mail from your CHIP insurance company.
RENEW BY MAIL
Your CHIP insurance company will send you a renewal form with your renewal notice. After your renewal form is complete, you will need to sign it and send it back. If you haven't received your renewal notice, call your CHIP health insurance company, at the phone number listed on the back of your child's identification card. Then, ask them to send another renewal form.
