What does Health Insurance cost you? Premiums Most people do not have to pay a monthly premium f Health Insurance.

If you have to pay a premium, the premium amounts are: $0 - $70 per household f all children. $0 - $5 per person f employed people with disabilities. Native Americans and Alaskan Natives Per federal law, Native Americans enrolled with a federally recognized tribe and certain Alaskan Natives do not have to pay a KidsCare premium. To get KidsCare at no cost, you must give us proof of tribal enrollment. Co-payments A co-payment is the amount you pay a health care provider when you receive a medical service. Your co-payment amount will vary depending on which program you are enrolled in and the services you need. F some programs, the provider can deny services if the co-payments are not made. Co-payments f services are: $.0 to $0.00 f prescriptions $0 to $0.00 f non-emergency use of an emergency room $.0 to $5.00 f outpatient visits f evaluation and management services including docts office visits $.0 to $.00 f physical, occupational speech therapy $0 to $.00 per one way trip f taxis ride, non-emergency medical transptation, and Taxi ride to obtain medical services (f adults in Maricopa and Pima counties only) Remember to rept any changes in income because this may change your co-payment amount.
