HealthWave is a state-designed program that provides health coverage to low-income children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who have limited or no health insurance.

· A child whose family has a household income below 200% of the federal poverty level is eligible for HealthWave. For a family of 3, this works out to an annual income of about $36,620, or a monthly income of about $3,052.

· HealthWave provides comprehensive coverage to enrollees. A few of the covered services include regular check-ups and immunizations, dental care, vision and hearing testing, medications, inpatient and outpatient mental health services, and hospital visits.

· Depending on your income, you may be required to pay a small monthly premium. For example in 2009, some families may be required to pay between $20 and $30 in monthly premiums.
