Many more occupied a position of income stability, but little more than that. When you are living at these income levels, the cost of medical care is very expensive.

Families with lower incomes can find health insurance opportunities through the Public Health Department. Medicaid offers limited coverage to those living under the poverty limit, while ALL Kids, Alabama's S-CHIP offering, provides children of limited income families comprehensive medical coverage for a small yearly fee. Parents pay premiums/co-pays based on their incomes. Other health insurance options include a federal income tax credit for unemployed workers and the popular WIC program.

For those whose income puts them out of reach of state aid, there are still many health insurance options, including the following:

  • Health insurance through associations: Whether you're in a teachers union, farm workers organization or hobby group, you can get individual coverage at group prices.

  • Alabama Health Insurance Plan: For those who have exhausted coverage through a previous employer and do not have other coverage available.
