I found this rather interesting topic on health insurance for children. Its in North Carolina.
North Carolina Health Choice (NCHC) for Children is a free or reduced price comprehensive health care program for children. If your family makes too much money to qualify for Medicaid but too little to afford rising health insurance premiums, your child(ren) may qualify for NCHC.
NCHC covers hospitalization and outpatient care including the following:
*Physician and clinic services
*Laboratory and radiology services
*Durable medical equipment and supplies such as wheelchairs
*Physical therapy, occupational therapy and therapy for individuals with speech, hearing and language disorders
*Home health care (limited)
*Inpatient mental health services (requires precertification)
*Outpatient mental health services (requires precertification after 26 outpatient visits per year)
*Inpatient substance abuse treatment and outpatient substance abuse treatment (requires precertification)
Its pretty good. I didn’t know North Carolina health insurance was this good. When will things like this happen to poor kids in India?
