Assistance to allow kids to be insured

The U.S. Federal government gives some assistance to the states to create health insurance programs for kids. The income allowed varies and the insurance varies from state to state. Here is a link to locate information about programs in your state.

http://www.insurekidsnow.gov/

from that site:
Kids that do not currently have health insurance are likely to be eligible, even if you are working.


It would be nice if the government had such sympathy for adults too.

Besides drugs and health care... kids need dental care too. Luckily CHIP programs usually cover it.

nearly all States have opted to provide coverage for dental services.
