Get The Medical Attention Your Family Needs With Single Mother Medical Insurance
Health insurance is a chief concern for every household in the country, especially those with young and teenage children. It creates a necessity for single mothers to find not just work, but a job that offers medical insurance, as well as dental and vision. These jobs are becoming more and more rare, and more and more women are needing to search for single mother medical insurance to help them keep their families healthy.
Of course, the most commonly known of the health insurance programs for low income families is Medicaid. The purpose of Medicaid is to ensure that necessary health care and vaccinations are available even to those who are indigent or homeless. You must meet certain criteria in order to be eligible for Medicaid coverage. You can learn more at cms.gov.
Most single moms will tell you that they will forego coverage for themselves if they are unemployed, but they must have coverage for their children. Most states have available insurance coverage services that will cover children for a low income household for free or for a nominal cost. This coverage covers more than just emergency visits; it also covers vaccinations and wellness. While plans differ from state to state, the goal is to keep children healthy even when the household is struggling financially. A Michigan family, for example, would visit michigan.gov/mdch to apply.
The federally funded program, Insure Kids! Now, targets children of divorce, children of working the working poor, and other at risk children living in homes with financial issues beyond their control. At insurekidsnow.gov, you can fill out an application with your family’s financial information, including income and debt, and you will be matched with the federal program that is best suited for you. Coverage typically includes wellness, dental, vision, hearing, hospital care, and more.
As a lone parent, even if you have a job that offers the opportunity to purchase health insurance, you are possibly paying too much. The fact is that the cost of health insurance has risen astronomically in recent years, and if it is taking a larger chunk out of your income than you can afford, you may have other options. At singleparents.org, you can fill out some personal information and receive an analysis of what you are receiving and what you are paying. You will also have the opportunity to fill out an application and be matched up with an insurance provider that is right for you and your family.
If you are a single mom and often find yourself not buying prescribed medications because of the cost, you may be eligible for assistance from a group like Rx Hope. This is a pharmaceutical plan that covers most prescription medications with only a small co-pay for each. With the help of this prescription card, you no longer have to weigh the importance of each prescription before purchasing it or administer it wrong so you can make it last longer. You should visit rxhope.com for more information.
For single mothers who have no health insurance, another option is to work with a group like AmeriPlan USA. This is not an insurance company, but they contract with medical service providers who pledge to provide discounted services to patients who are members of AmeriPlan. Utilizing a service provider that is part of AmeriPlan can save money and make health care accessible. You can learn more at ameriplanusa.com.
