Georgia PeachCare for Kids is a program that provides health coverage to low-income Georgia children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who are not currently covered by health insurance. Children of state employees are not eligible for PeachCare for Kids.

· A child whose family has a household income below 235% of the federal poverty level is eligible for Georgia PeachCare for Kids. Eligibility is guaranteed for one year unless the child moves to another state, enrolls in Medicaid, or becomes financially ineligible.

· There is no cost for children under age 5. Currently, the cost per month for a child over age 5 is $10 to $35 for one child and a maximum of $70 for two or more children living in the same household.

· PeachCare for Kids covers medical, vision and dental care. This includes care from a doctor when your child is sick and preventative services such as immunizations and regular check-ups.
