Mississippi CHIP


CHIP is designed to provide health care insurance for children in families without health insurance or with inadequate health insurance. It does not replace Medicaid; in fact, children on Medicaid are precluded from CHIP participation. A coalition of public, non-profit and private health-related organizations is committed to improving the health of Mississippi's children.
