Child Health Watch Helpline assists families in finding health insurance for their children.  We help with applications for public health insurance, either Medical Assistance (MA) or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and to resolve enrollment problems. This service is free and is available in any language.

Helpline staff also helps families find health care services such as primary care, dental, vision, and behavioral health care that they can access with or without insurance.
