The application is a two-page form that will begin the application process. Each application will first be looked at to see if the child is eligible for the program. If the child is found to be eligible, the application will be processed and the parents will receive a health card, a benefits booklet and instructions in the mail. Once parents are notified, the child is eligible to receive care.
Note: Unlike Medicaid, this program is limited by the amount of funds that are available. Therefore, it is open only to children on a first come, first served basis. Once the program is full, a waiting list will be taken, so it is in the best interest of the child to enroll as soon as it is possible.
