How to get help
Applying for benefits can be hard but we are here to help. At Cook Children’s Health Plan we offer application assistance events to help you apply for CHIP, STAR (Medicaid) and STAR Kids. You do not need to make an appointment. When you come to the event be sure to bring with you:
- Photo ID
- Child(ren) birth certificate(s)
- Child(ren) Social Security card(s)
- Last 60 days of pay stubs
Let us assist you with applying or renewing for Medicaid and CHIP. A representative will provide assistance with the application process, answer question regarding the programs and connect you to additional resources. Please make your appointment by emailing CommunityMarketing@cookchildrens.org. You will be contacted directly to set up a date, time and location.
If you have questions, please call Cook Children's Health Plan at 1-800-964-2247.
