Healthy Kids, Oregon's newly expanded health coverage program for uninsured children, has now officially reached the halfway mark toward its goal of enrolling 80,000 more children by the end of this year.
The effort was touched off by new legislation passed last year to provide health care to every child in Oregon.
Healthy Kids covers all regular check-ups, prescriptions, dental, vision, mental and behavioral health care. The program is open to any uninsured child legally residing in Oregon. No child will be turned away because of a pre-existing condition and coverage options are available to families at every income level.
Families with incomes at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (around $44,100 for a family of four) qualify for free coverage for their children, while families with incomes between 200 and 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (up to about $66,000 for a family of four) will pay a small portion (10-15 percent) of the premium.
Families who exceed this income limit may buy into the program at full cost. No child will be turned away because of a pre-existing condition.
Families with uninsured children can apply for Healthy Kids by calling 1-877-314-5678 or online at www.oregonhealthykids.gov. Families who would like help completing the application can find a list of community partners who provide this assistance on the Healthy Kids website.
