Healthy Kids provides no-cost, low-cost and full-cost health coverage options for uninsured Oregon children and teens up to 19 years of age. Coverage lasts for one full year and covers all health needs, including doctor visits, dental care, vision, mental or behavioral health services, prescriptions, and more.
Children will not be turned away due to pre-existing conditions or be put on a waiting list.
When children and teens have health coverage, they are able to get the health care they need when they need it. That means they are less likely to miss school or end up seeking higher cost care in the emergency room. It also means their families don’t have to choose between paying the utility bills or paying for needed visits or prescriptions.
The Community Education Department of the Oregon City School District is dedicated to making sure our youth has access to quality health services parents can afford.
Expanding health coverage for children is an important step to lowering the price of health care for everyone. Providing health benefits to children is inexpensive compared to the cost of letting them remain uninsured, and creates economic benefit over a lifetime.
