    The State Plan is the officially recognized statement describing the nature and scope of Kentucky Medicaid's Children's Health Insurance (KCHIP) program. The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) was signed into law in 1997 and provides federal matching funds to states to provide health coverage to children in families with incomes too high to qualify for Medicaid, but who can't afford private coverage. All states have expanded children's coverage significantly through their CHIP programs, with nearly every state providing coverage for children up to at least 213 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
