There are no income limits for Healthfirst Child Health Plus. Instead, your monthly income determines your child’s premium (monthly payment for health insurance). The Child Health Plus Family Contributions chart (link below) will show you how much you can expect to pay for Child Health Plus coverage each month. To use the chart:
- Count the number of applying children and the legally responsible relatives of the applying children living in the household, in accordance with the chart. Do not count children and siblings over age 21 or unrelated household members
- Read down that column until the number is higher than your monthly income. Then follow the row to the far left column to see your child’s premium (monthly payment amount). Note that this cost is per child, per month
