Free or Low Cost Healthcare
The Maryland Children's Health Program provides free health insurance for pregnant women and children who have moderate to low incomes. For example, you may be eligible if you have a family income below $29,140 for a family of two, including a pregnant woman and her unborn child. Income limits are higher for larger families.
If you are eligible, you will be enrolled in Health Choice, the statewide managed care program. Applications may be mailed or filled out in person at a Health Department Regional Access Center.
Individuals who are not eligible for Maryland Children's Health Program may be eligible for two other programs:
- The Medical Care for Children Partnership (MCCP) of Prince George's County is a program sponsored by Prince George's County Health Department and Kaiser Permanente. Through this program, health insurance is available for children in eligible families for a nominal fee.
- The Kaiser Bridge program provides low cost health insurance for adults who are not eligible for or covered by another health plan, including Medicare or Medicaid. The Bridge Program helps people who suddenly find that they cannot afford health insurance because of a change in job status or income. To qualify for this program, you must be a Prince George's County resident and meet income limits and certain other requirements.
- Medical Assistance for Families
