Health Insurance Available for Uninsured Children
There are more than 127,000 uninsured children in Michigan. Most of them are eligible right now for one of the state's two health insurance plans for kids - MIChild or Healthy Kids. A state-wide campaign has been launched to enroll as many uninsured children as possible in one of these plans. Enrolling a child is fast and simple, and the most any family will pay is $10 a month. Enrollment can be done on the Internet or by telephone. On the Internet, click on the link below and follow the instructions or dial 2-1-1.
A child who gets health care in the right place at the right time is better prepared to learn and less likely to develop serious, costly medical conditions. Check out your options today.
