Kids that do not currently have health insurance are likely to be
eligible, even if you (the parent) are working. In Wisconsin: you
must have children under age 19 living with you, your income must
be within the guideline limits, there is no limit on assets, you
must not be covered by health insurance. Some families may need
to pay a premium based on the family income/ability to pay.
