Care and Coverage Programs Serving Low-Income Families and Individuals
Medicaid — A federal and state program that provides health care coverage for low-income children and their parents, pregnant women, the disabled, and elderly
Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)— A federal and state program that covers children up to 19 years of age with household incomes higher than those in Medicaid, but too low to afford private insurance
Kaiser Permanente Charitable Health Coverage programs — These programs are designed by Kaiser Permanente regions to offer highly subsidized insurance coverage to low-income individuals and families that do not qualify for Medicaid or CHIP. These programs are unique to Kaiser Permanente, offering their members the same access to high quality care as nonsubsidized members.
Kaiser Permanente’s Medical Financial Assistance program Assistance — This program helps those who are uninsured receive episodic care at Kaiser Permanente, as well as those who are insured but cannot afford the out-of-pocket costs of care
