For many disabled parents, the loss of working income makes it difficulty to afford health insurance for children. After a year long court battle to recover child’s benefits in connection with a Social Security Disability case, I received a Notice of Award for child’s benefits that included a note about insurance for children through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (“CHIP”).
Each State’s CHIP provides health insurance to uninsured, low-income children 18 years of age or younger, including those who are homeless. You can call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669) to find out how to apply, or go to http://cms.hhs.gov/schip for more information.Previous Next
