What Does KCHIP Cost?

A KCHIP co-payment is required for prescription medicine. Pharmacy co-payments range from $1 to $3 per prescription, depending on the type of medicine you receive.

No co-payment is required for allergy shots, but a $2 co-payment is required for allergy testing.

A co-payment of $6 may be charged for emergency room visits that are not true emergencies.

If you cannot pay the co-pay at the time of service, you still owe it.

Is there a limit to the amount of co-payments I pay?

Yes. Total costs to you will not be more than $450 a year. This includes all co-payments.
