Single Parent Families – You May Qualify For Free or Low-Cost Health Insurance for Your Kids

Kids that do not currently have health insurance are likely to be
eligible, even if you are working.
The states have different
eligibility rules, but in most states, uninsured children 18
years old and younger, whose families earn up to $34,100 a year
(for a family of four) are eligible.

You work hard to provide for your children and want to make sure
they grow up strong, smart and healthy. But like many parents
whose children don’t have health insurance, you worry about
taking care of them.

Now, you may have one less thing to worry about. Your state, and
every state in the nation, has a health insurance program for
infants, children and teens. The insurance is available to children
in working families, including families that include individuals
with a variety of immigration status. (Materials
are available that explain more about immigration and children’s
health insurance.)

For little or no cost, this insurance pays for:

  • doctor
    visits,
  • prescription
    medicines,
  • hospitalizations,
    and
  • much
    more.
