Open Enrollment Deadline Tuesday For Low-Cost Kids Health Insurance

The deadline for parents to enroll their kids with pre-existing medical conditions in low-cost health insurance is Tuesday.

Federal and California laws now guarantee health care coverage for children. Insurance companies can’t deny coverage for kids who apply — even those with pre-existing conditions. And they can’t overcharge, either. Premiums can’t be more than twice as high as those for healthy kids.
