Affordable Health Insurance for Kids in Georgia

Whenever you look for a new child only health insurance plan, it is important to balance the cost and the benefits. You might be able to choose between public and private options, and you need to make the choice that gives you secure and convenient access to the right doctors at a price you can afford.

Consider some Kaiser Family Foundation facts about Georgia child only health insurance:

  • Georgia offers CHIP to many children from families with an income up to 252 percent of the poverty level.
  • About a quarter of a million Georgia children had CHIP coverage in 2011.
  • The Affordable Care Act provides tax credits to help many families pay for private health insurance if their income is between 100 and 400 percent of the poverty level.

There is some overlap between the income of families who might qualify for CHIP or tax credits. It takes some time to apply for CHIP, income requirements are strict, and children cannot get covered services until applications are approved. Because the ACA does not permit insurers to decline children because of health issues, the application process can be pretty fast and easy.
