Does your child/ren have health insurance?

Be honest. If they don't I won't bash. I'm not a troll. I'm asking this because my son doesnt since every place keeps throwing loopholes as in why he isn't 'eligable.'

  • Yep. My husband's work has insurance that only costs us $25 a week for all of us for everything (his company pays like $260 a week). If it wasn't so affordable though I would apply for Medicaid (Chip here in PA) for the boys.

  • Hey I just wanted to let you know about this great insurance company that i have. I just signed up last week. If me or my kids get hurt or have to go to the hospital, they will send me a check in the mail. and its less than $20 a month. And I also have a great life insurance policy through the same company for me and my kids. The rates are great and never go up. I am sharing that with everyone I know because its a great deal.

  • Yes, under PA CHIP all kids in the state can get insurance at little to no cost, no matter the income of the parents.
