AREA WIDE -- Back to School is a great time for parents to review healthcare coverage for their children and family.
“Students may need glasses, immunizations or a physical to play sports and parents may discover their coverage has lapsed or that they may qualify for the first time,” said Ammer Arnold, Lead Healthcare Navigator, of Covering Kids & Families (CKF) – TRI-CAP Coalition.
The TRI-CAP CKF Coalition is a local program that helps Hoosiers sign up for and understand health care coverage programs.
“Healthcare coverage (insurance) can be confusing for parents. We want all Hoosiers to know help is available,” Arnold continued.
Medicaid, Hoosier Healthwise, Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) have year around open enrollment.
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) offers coverage for children up to 250% of Federal Poverty Level – up to $65,900 for a family of four.
If you don’t have health care coverage or have questions about coverage, free unbiased help is available from Covering Kids & Families of Indiana and other community organizations.
Covering Kids & Families of TRI-CAP offers free, unbiased assistance in obtaining affordable health care insurance for children, families, and single adults.
