Designed for families who earn too much money to qualify for medicaid, yet cannot afford private insurance.

 

Many families will only pay $15 per year to cover all their children in the plan. Higher income families will pay monthly premiums of $15 or $18 which covers all children in the family. Most will also have very low co-payments for doctor visits, prescription drugs and emergency care.

 

Eligibility is based on 2000 Federal Income Guidelines. For example, a family of 4 which earns $34,100 per year or $2,842 per month is eligible.
