Whether the pregnant minor is approved under PLN or CHIP, eligibility will be established through the end of the postpartum period in accordance with 02300 and 2301 regardless of premium delinquency, aging out, or changes in circumstances other than Kansas residency.

For an ongoing CHIP eligible child who becomes pregnant, the child would continue to be covered under the CHIP program until the end of her 12-month postpartum period.
