Child Health Insurance Cost


How Much Does Child Health Insurance Cost?

 

Information about free or low-cost health insurance for children is available through InsureKidsNow.gov[1] , which also lists resources by state[2] .

However, the overall process for purchasing individual health insurance (rather than through an employer or a government program such as Medicare) has been radically changed by the Affordable Care Act of 2010, which requires Americans to buy minimum essential health insurance coverage or pay an annual penalty to the IRS.

The online enrollment process that began Oct. 1, 2013, has been plagued by technical problems. CostHelper attempted to obtain typical pricing information through HealthCare.gov[3] , but we were repeatedly unsuccessful. CostHelper will continue to monitor the situation, and we will report typical costs for child health insurance when they are available.

First Health
Amount: $58.83 per month

Insurer: Policy: Short Term Medical
Bought the short term medical insurance for my 3 years old daughter after I lost my job and the health insurance coverage. First Health offers low monthly charge with $5000 deductible, but their doctor network sucks! I called at least 10 doctors which is on network list to ask about if they accept First Health. Most of them have no idea what it is. The customer service told me that their doctor list is voluntarily updated by the doctor, they have no control. I don't recommend this insurance unless you cannot find anything in Marketplace.
