Pennsylvania's Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) has launched a new Spanish-language Web site,, to better serve Latinos.

"According to our most recent study of the uninsured, there are more than 85,000 uninsured Latinos in our state," says Deputy Insurance Commissioner Peter Adams. "The goal of our new site is to better serve the growing Latino population in Pennsylvania, and provide resources for parents to learn about CHIP and to apply."

Through a partnership with the Philadelphia Dominican Bodega Owners Association, Latino convenience stores located in the lower North Philadelphia area will distribute information featuring the new Spanish Web site.

The CHIP program provides free or low cost health care coverage for most children up to the age of 19, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Insurance. Because there is no income limit, families cannot make too much money to receive coverage from CHIP. Other services covered by CHIP include dental, vision and prescriptions.
