What Does It Cost?
CHP+ costs vary depending on your household size and income. CHP+ members may have to pay an annual enrollment fee. This fee is due within thirty (30) days of your CHP+ approval. Some CHP+ clients may also have to pay co-payments to their health care provider at the time of service. Prenatal women, Native American and Alaskan Natives do not have to pay annual enrollment fees or co-payments.
