Additional Individual and Family Health Insurance Resources

  • State Children's Health Insurance Program

    SCHIP is an extension of a state's Medicaid program, typically serving children of poor or low-income families, although some states have much broader eligibility requirements. This is one of the few state-sponsored programs available to families who cannot obtain group or private family coverage for their children.

  • High-Risk Pools

    Many states offer high-risk health coverage to individuals who are deemed "uninsurable" due to a pre-existing condition that excludes them from coverage through most of the state's health insurance carriers. These programs are more mandated by the state than they are sponsored by it since a heavy burden of cost is still placed on the individual.
