    Medical coverage and help for families

    Beginning in January 2000, there are two programs available to children. Families may be eligible for Medicaid (a free insurance plan) or Children's Health Insurance Plan (CHIP a low cost insurance plan - $10 premium per child per month). A family of four with a gross income close to $2842 would be eligible for Medicaid. A family of four with a gross income close to $3553 would be eligible for CHIP. There are some deductions which may allow a family to have a higher income. Coverage for eligible children includes immunizations, doctor and dental visits, hospital care, glasses, prescriptions, etc. Call your school for information.
