MC+ for Kids is part of the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program and provides health insurance for uninsured children of low-income families who do not have access to affordable health insurance.
- If a child aged 19 and under does not have health insurance, MC+ provides payment of medical expenses at little or no cost. The price a family pays depends on your family income.
- MC+ enrolls children from families whose family income is up to 300% of the Federal Poverty Level. For example, for a family of three making less than $4,150 per month, the child (or children) would be eligible for coverage.
- MC+ provides comprehensive coverage to enrollees. This includes doctor and nurse care, immunization and preventative care, health clinic care, laboratory tests and x-rays, prescription drugs, medical equipment and medical transportation, dental care, eye care, hospital care, mental health services, and preventative well-child visits, as well as other services.
