Washington State Child Only Health Insurance

Choices are good, but they can also get confusing. You may have questions about public and private health insurance for babies, children, and teenagers. These are some facts about health care in Washington:

  • Washingtonians under 18: 23 percent
  • CHIP income qualification in 2014: Kids with family incomes up to 305 percent of the federal poverty level may qualify.
  • Application for CHIP: Kids have to wait until their application gets processed before medical costs are covered.

Because the Affordable Care Act does not allow private marketplace plans to cherry pick kids because of their health, the application process is usually pretty straightforward and quick. Children may need coverage fast to attend school or participate in activities.

Assurant Offers Child Only Health Insurance Plans in Washington State

You might consider Assurant as a provider of popular PPO child only health insurance plans on the health insurance marketplace. PPO plans help you save money with in-network providers, but also allow you to choose to access out-of-network services that are still covered. They are more flexible than HMO plans, and they are still affordable solutions for many families. Be sure to check out the network of medical providers as it can vary by city. For example, people who live in Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Vancouver, or Bellevue cannot expect to have the same selections of doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies.

These are some features of the plans in Washington from Assurant:

  • Children are not turned down because of pre-existing medical issues.
  • Child only health insurance plans fully cover in-network preventative care.
  • Kids get dental, and vision benefits too.
  • A selection of high deductible and low deductible plans in all of the marketplace “metal” levels makes it simple to balance the price and the benefits.
