Why is it so hard to get a child healthcare?

To me, it's just so wrong.
My situation: I was married and my husband had insurance through his employer. I was working part time and finishing school. Xdh decides to ABUSE the mentally disabled clients he takes care of and gets arrested and loses his job. I leave him and start a full time job. My job doesn't offer healthcare for 3 months and I am having a very hard time getting my 3 yo on any type of health care. She also has health issues. Sooo awesome :/ oh, and its going to take over a month for my first check and xdh spent all the savings. Awesome.

It's a national program that ensures every child can have health care either free or low cost.

What state are you in?

Does your state offer any aid for uninsured kids?

It's typical to wait 90 days for benefits to begin. Contact local welfare office and see if they have temp healthcare. But honestly I just wait til benefits start, go to free/low income health clinics, pay out if pocket til they start.

Apply for your state health insurance. It's called different things in every state but almost all children qualify if they are under 18...Especially if no health insurance is offered through an employer. What state do you live in?
