Covering Kids and Families (Health Care Coverage)

The following information appeared in the Dear Abby column yesterday but I thought it was worth repeating for anyone who may need the information and missed it.

There are programs in every state and the District of Columbia through Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program to cover doctor visits, hospitalizations, prescriptions and more. Eligilibility varies from state to state but famlies four earning up to $38,000 a year or more may qualify.

The Covering Kids & Families Back-to-School Campaign to enroll eligible, uninsured children in low-cost and free health care coverage programs is throughout August and September. Thousands of outreach and enrollment events will take place in all 50 states and the District of Columbia promoting the 1(877) KIDS-NOW {(877) 543-7669} toll-free hotline that parents can call to find out if their uninsured children are eligible.
