Membership Required Insure Kids Now

Your children may be eligible for free or low-cost health insurance! 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.)
