Children's Health Insurance Program Grantee Applications

[27 Pa.B. 686]

   The Management Team for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), established under the Children's Health Care Act (62 P. S. §§ 5001.101--5001.3015) (act), will accept applications from health insurance entities for grants to administer the CHIP program. Potential grantees should request grant applications from Lowware Holliman-Murry, CHIP Project Manager, Insurance Department, 1326 Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, PA 17120, or call (717) 783-1437 or (717) 705-0009. A public informational meeting to answer questions concerning the CHIP Program and application instructions is scheduled for February 14, 1997 in Room 812, Health and Welfare Building, Harrisburg, PA 17102 at 1 p.m. Final proposals are due from potential grantees on March 7, 1997 by 4:30 p.m. at the offices identified in the application.

   Applications from all interested companies are encouraged and preference will be given to managed health care entities (for example, HMOs or PPOs with primary care gatekeepers). Applicants must hold a valid Certificate of Authority issued by the Insurance Department and have secured the required approvals from the Department of Health.

   CHIP is funded by the proceeds from a per pack cigarette tax and provides health insurance for low to moderate income uninsured Pennsylvania children.
