The program is jointly funded by both the state and the federal government. CHIP insurance program can only benefit children who are under the age of 19 (Smith, 2011). However, in some states, the program covers pregnant women as well as parents. For the program to be able to offer its services more effectively, it works very closely with Medicaid. Services covered by CHIP insurance program varies from state to state though there are some services that are generally offered by all the states. Such services include x-rays, dental care, immunizations, doctor visits, routine check-ups and laboratory services (Smith, 2011).
