Low-Cost Health Coverage for Kids
Welcome to Insuring Kids! Our goal is to help families complete the joint application for Healthy Families and Medi-Cal programs offered by the State of California. We are not an insurance agency and those individuals and families seeking alternate health coverage can contact their local broker or agent for further assistance.
Healthy Families was created in 1997, in part, by Title XXI of the Social Security Act and is a State and Federal partnership that targets uninsured children and pregnant women in families with incomes too high to qualify for most State medicaid programs, but often too low to afford private coverage.
Over 7.4 Million Children are enrolled in the Healthy Families program and on February 4, 2009, President Obama signed the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA), which renews and expands coverage of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) from 7 million children to 11 million children.
Health Benefits in California offered through Healthy Families includes comprehensive health, dental and vision coverage (Summary of Benefits). Office copays are $5.
Qualifications for Healthy Families are based on family size and income. To help you determine if your kids qualify for the program we have created a quick pre-qualification questionnaire to assist your family in applying for coverage and benefits offered through Healthy Families.
