The New Hampshire Healthy Kids Program is a Medicaid expansion program that provides health coverage to low-income children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who have no health insurance and pregnant women ineligible for Medicaid.
- A child up to age 19 whose family has a household income below 185% of the federal poverty level is eligible for Healthy Kids Gold program. For a family of 3, this works out to an annual income of about $30,710, or a monthly income of about $2,559. Uninsured infants under age 1 whose family income is no more than 300% of the federal poverty level are eligible for the Gold program as well. There are no premiums for this program.
- Uninsured children up to age 19 with income higher than 185% but not more than 400% of the federal poverty level can get coverage under the Healthy Kids Silver program. Under this program there is a monthly premium based on family size and household income.
- Eligibility is guaranteed for six months unless the child moves from the state, enrolls in Medicaid, reaches age 19, or is found to have other health coverage. Eligibility can also be canceled if it is obtained due to fraud or false or misleading statements or for nonpayment of premiums.
