Healthy Kids to be discontinued in Tulare County
Visialia Times-Delta - Victor Garcia

The Healthy Kids insurance program will be eliminated in Tulare County in October, leaving hundreds of local children without health coverage. The program, operated by First 5 Tulare County and the Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency, will be canceled effective Oct. 31 because of a lack of funding. Healthy Kids provides health insurance for children whose families are uninsured, but don’t qualify for Medi-Cal or the Healthy Families program.
