Information on Available Health Care Children's Policies

Health care children’s policies are provided to cover the cost of healthcare for children under the age of 18.  In most cases, children’s health insurance needs are provided under a parent’s health insurance coverage. The coverage is typically provided through an employer or on an individual basis. There may be some private policies that are available exclusively for children but an insurance shopper should always check their existing policy to see if they are already covered with their own insurance.

Informational Brochures

An insurance company that “offers” children health care coverage will have informational brochures available with the required information. The information provided should conform to state insurance regulations. These informational brochures should disclose details about the plan’s benefits, costs, limitations and any other information necessary for the consumer to make an informed decision. You can get more information from the Department of Health and Human Services to find details on specific children’s insurance plans.

CHIP

CHIP, Children’s Health Insurance Program, is an affordable child health insurance program that is run by the US Department of Health and Human Services. The program allows children who are uninsured to get general coverage.

There are also private insurance firms that should not be confused with the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Whatever plan you choose, you should get information on that, which you can best get by getting in touch with the company and asking for their brochure. Agents can help you in understanding the information better, such as specific costs of the policies and the payouts that you can expect.
