PeachCare for Kids


In 1997, Congress created Title XXI of the Social Security Act to provide health care for the growing number of uninsured children in the United States. This legislation provided states with the opportunity to create programs to increase access to affordable health insurance. In Georgia, this program is PeachCare for Kids. PeachCare for Kids began covering children in 1999, providing comprehensive health care to children through the age of 18 who do not qualify for Medicaid and live in households with incomes at or below 235% of the federal poverty level. This means a family of three can earn $43,029 a year and a family of four can earn $51,818 a year.
