HEALTH CARE COVERAGE FOR CHILDREN ...

 
 

Lonesome Pine Office on Youth has been awarded a grant from the Virginia Health Care Foundation (http://www.vhcf.org ) for Project Connect.  Project Connect is an outreach and application assistance project designed to help eligible families in Wise County apply for free health care coverage for their children. 

 

Today's economy is taking its toll on all Virginians; Wise County is no exception.  As many residents have part-time jobs, lower paying jobs and even lose their jobs, health care becomes a great issue.  Fortunately, children are not being forced to go without health care, thanks to the FAMIS program, which provides free health insurance for eligible Virginia children.

 

The FAMIS programs are not Welfare.  They help children receive health insurance and health care until their parents are able to re-enter the workforce.

 

FAMIS insurance covers:


  • Doctor Visits
  • Prescription Medicines
  • Hospital Care
  • Eye Glasses
  • Dental Care
  • Immunizations
  • Regular check-ups
  • and more ...


Eligibility is based on a family's current monthly income (a family of four earning up to $3,675/month may qualify).

For more information on FAMIS, contact Lonesome Pine Office on Youth at 276-523-5064, extension 16.  An Outreach Worker will help you complete and submit the application and collect all the documents you need to insure that, if approved, your children can begin receiving health care coverage.
