 Kids Connection is a Medicaid expansion program developed by the state of Nebraska 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 at or below 185% of the federal poverty level is eligible for Kids Connection. For a family of 3, this works out to an annual income of about $28,990, or a monthly income of about $2,416. Pregnant women with the same income level are also eligible.
  • Benefits include routine and preventive health care such as immunizations, well-baby and well-child visits, dental check-ups, and vision and hearing testing. Doctor’s visits, hospital care, prescription drugs, laboratory tests and x-rays, and counseling are also offered.
