Single moms with limited incomes can get free or low cost health care coverage for their children with the help of the Healthy and Well Kids in Iowa (hawk-i) program. No family pays more than $40 per month, the amount you pay being based on the family income.
A health plan provider that has agreed to participate in the program will provide children that have qualified for hawk-I health insurance all of their necessary care services. Including dental, vision, and mental health services, beneficiaries will receive a comprehensive package of health care benefits.
