I think the touch of paint is rust resistant (someone feel free to correct me) so if it's very small you might be able to get away with just painting it.
I'd recommend a sanding pen to try and get rid of the rust in the chip before painting over it. If you just cover up the rust with paint, it'll probably spread under the new paint and won't be too pretty after a while.
