Those in Kaiser Permanente's Community Health Care Program will not have a monthly premium and will have access to Kaiser’s health care system or providers.
Here’s An Option For Health Insurance For Young People Who Have No Where Else To Turn
Young adults in Fresno, Kings and Tulare counties who are not eligible for Medi-Cal and cannot afford private insurance can enroll in a new Kaiser Permanente health program. The new Community Health Care Program provides coverage to young adults, ages 19 to 25, with household incomes of up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level (up to $36,180 for a single person or up to $73,800 for a family of four). Young adults in the program will not have a monthly premium and will have access to Kaiser’s health care system or providers. (Anderson, 11/6)
