How can I get Medicaid coverage for my children?

If you’re enrolled in Medicaid when your baby is born, your child is automatically eligible for Medicaid until your child’s first birthday. This means you don’t have to file a separate application for your new baby. He or she should be automatically enrolled after birth.

All states provide coverage for children through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). In fact, your children are likely to be eligible for coverage if your income is up to about $45,000 per year (for a family of four).
