Get Health Insurance for Your Child Only

You can buy children health insurance to cover your child on a separate policy than yours. Situations where you may want to buy child only health insurance would be:

  • It is too expensive to add your child on to your employer plan
  • Your children are eligible for Medi-Cal, but you prefer to have them on a private plan instead
  • You have been court ordered to provide health insurance for your child who does not live with you
  • You want to pay for a child only health insurance policy for a child who does not live with you or who is not a part of your tax household (like for a grandchild, niece, or nephew)

Gaining Affordable Health Insurance for Children

A child only application is for people who know they do not qualify for a subsidy and want a regular, private, child health insurance plan. The child only quote will allow you to compare private plans side by side and in 4 different levels for you to choose the best plan that fits in your budget.

  • Know your offered coverage

    If you are offered affordable employer health insurance, than you do not qualify for a tax credit. However, it may be more cost effective to purchase an individual plan for your child instead of insuring them through your plan at work.

  • Know your income

    Check the household income limits to see if you qualify for a tax credit through Covered CA. You may want to apply for a family plan instead of a child only plan if you do qualify for a tax credit as this could be your most affordable option.

  • Consider Medi-Cal

    Check the household income limits to see if your child qualifies for Medi-Cal. Children qualify for Medi-Cal at higher income levels than adults. Many people who have employer plans find that their children can qualify for Medi-Cal which covers their medical services for free or a very low cost.

The person who fills out the application for the child health insurance policy needs to be the parent or legal guardian. Required information will include: contact information, address, date of birth, social security number, citizenship or immigration information for each child and the responsible party.
