Low Cost and Free Health Insurance for Alabama's Children
Broadcast Date: July 10, 2006
The number of children in Alabama with healthcare coverage grew significantly last year. This means that those children will now be healthier, happier children who have better school attendance and probably make better grades. Why? Because they are now getting well child check-ups, immunizations, sick child doctor visits, prescriptions, vision and dental care. Now if they do get sick their parents can afford to take them to their own doctor. Some of these low cost health insurance programs even offer comprehensive healthcare coverage for children up to the age of 19.
This program will specifically address new issues and recent changes in the following five Alabama child health insurance programs: SOBRA Medicaid, CHIP/ALL Kids, Alabama Child Caring Foundation, State Employees (SE)-CHIP, and PEEHIP-CHIP. A representative from each of these programs will provide program updates.
