2451 Continuous Eligibility for CHIP - Once financial eligibility is established as of the date the case is processed, all eligible CHIP children shall be eligible for a 12 month period. This 12-month period establishes the review period for the family and the individual continuous eligibility dates for all approved members.
Children who subsequently enter a household, request assistance and are determined eligible for CHIP shall also receive continuous eligibility for a 12-month period
When a family contains individuals eligible under any combination of poverty level children, CHIP, Family Medical, newborn or pregnant women categories, individual continuous eligibility periods may differ. Continuous eligibility periods will not always align with other household members
