MysticMoonMommyIsBack (1468.9 days ago) WIC gives you vouchers for eggs, milk, cheese, cereal, juice, and peanut butter or dried beans. When breastfeeding they will add a 32 oz bag of carrots and 5 or 6 cans of tuna to your vouchers. Where I am they also give Farmer`s Market vouchers in April or May that will go from then until usually the end of July. It is not for poor people because I know a lot of people who make really good money and some are military and are on WIC. The vouchers for the children only last until they turn 5.
Medicaid is a form of government health insurance which is paid for by the government, they will give it to pregnant women without insurance and there is also children`s Medicaid which is good until they turn 18. It will pay for all the doctor`s visits, prescriptions, hospital visits/stays, and some dental. If you are making enough money that your kids cannot be Medicaid the next thing you can do is sign up for Healthy Kids/Kid Care (that is what they call it in Florida), and that will also do the same things Medicaid will, but you pay $15/month per child.
hillaryandmikesbaby (1468.9 days ago) i wouldnt say that i am poor either. I take part in WIC and i get state healthcare. I have worked since i was 16 and was layed off in january, right about the time i concieved. It isnt only for the poor but for those who have fallen into tough times and need a little extra help untill they are able to get back on their feet.
amber325 (1468.9 days ago) they are only free for poor people....Middle class and higher pay for other families who can`t pay for there formula cheese etc.
EmmaReed84 (1469.1 days ago) LOL Lizette I love you, you make me laugh so much ha ha ha. Hope DD and DH are well (apart from the screaming lol) In the UK we pay National Health Insurance through our wages it comes straight out like TAX. So when we go the doctors or hospital we don`t pay it`s all part of the NHS (National Health Service) But we do have to pay for prescriptions £7:20. Some people re exempt from paying, (people who are on benefits, low incomes, disabled, over 65, under 16, pregnant) At the moment I don`t pay becuase I only had my son 6 months ago but when he is 1 I will have to pay again. You can pay to go private, or pay into a private health insurance. The NHS isn`t too bad lots of us brits always complain how bad it is, but when I hear about oher countries I thank god for our NHS it isnt perfect, but at least it is free (so to speak) I have never had any problems with our hospitals or doctors. I think I am lucky HA
