Hispanic girl preparing to jumpIs my child eligible?

The chart at the bottom of this page shows the current income limits for ARKids First benefit packages.  If your family’s income is less than the amount in the ARKids A column, then your children may be eligible for ARKids A (Medicaid).  If your family’s income is more than the amount in the ARKids A column but less than the amount in the ARKids B column, your children may be eligible for ARKids B.

Assets will not be considered when applying for ARKids A or B.

ARKids B is available to children who do not have employer-sponsored or group health insurance and have not had insurance for at least 90 days.  However, if you have lost insurance involuntarily, your children may be eligible for insurance immediately.

If you have questions about your eligibility, call the eligibility hotline at 1-888-474-8275.
