Health Insurance (including Children’s Health Insurance)

If you’re uninsured, you’re not alone.  874,000 Virginians under age 65 do not have health insurance.  There’s help if you can’t afford it or can’t pay for needed medical care.

What kind of help is there?  

There are two kinds of help for uninsured Virginians:  government-sponsored health insurance or free or reduced cost care.

Note:  The cost of buying and using health insurance (paying co-pays and deductibles) may be too much for people who live in households earning 100% to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level and have one or more chronic diseases (like asthma or diabetes) that require several prescription medicines and regular doctor visits.  If this sounds like you or a family member, contact your local health safety net organization to talk about your situation.
