Bassett Healthcare Network recently introduced the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The goal of the program is to enroll uninsured children and teens up to age 19 in low or no-cost health insurance through Medicaid or Child Health Plus.

CHIP provides a unique service with free one-on-one assistance with the completion and filing of applications for the Medicaid and CHIP health insurance programs. Whether meeting a parent at a School-Based Health Center (SBHC), hospital, their home or in the community, the program’s outreach workers will go the extra mile to ensure that all children receive the health insurance and medical care they deserve.

The office is located on the first floor of the Bassett Clinic at 125 Main Street, Oneonta.
