Insurance eligibility: Although individuals applying for care through Maryland Children's Health Program (MCHP) will be required to be uninsured, it doesn't always affect the eligibility. Some individuals with insurance can qualify for MCHP. Apply even if you have insurance and let your case manager decide whether having insurance will bar you from MCHP benefits or not.
