Childcare options

Congrats, you're pregnant!

Though it may seem early, now is the perfect time to look into childcare for your baby. Currently, every childcare center in Reno County has a waiting list for newborns.

Financial and insurance assistance

Do I qualify for WIC?

WIC serves Kansas residents who are:

  • Pregnant

  • Breastfeeding, up to baby's first birthday

  • Non-breastfeeding mothers, up to six months after baby's birth

  • Infants and children under five years old

 

WIC clients must meet WIC income guidelines and have a medical or nutritional need.

Many working people are eligible for WIC and don't realize it.

What are my options if I don't have health insurance for my baby?

 

KanCare

KanCare is the program through which the State of Kansas administers Medicaid. All pre-2013 Medicaid services are now provided through the KanCare health plans. These include physical health services such as doctor appointments and hospital visits, behavioral health services, dental and vision care, pharmacy, transportation, and nursing facility care. All the services offered through the State’s Home and Community Based Services waivers are part of KanCare. The HealthWave and HealthConnect Kansas programs have ended, and all of those services are now provided through the KanCare health plans.

Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

If your children need health coverage, they may be eligible for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). If they qualify, you won't have to buy an insurance plan to cover them.

CHIP provides low-cost health coverage to children in families that earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid. In some states, CHIP covers pregnant women. Each state offers CHIP coverage, and works closely with its state Medicaid program.

CHIP benefits provide comprehensive coverage, including:

  • Routine check-ups

  • Immunizations

  • Doctor visits

  • Prescriptions

  • Dental and vision care

  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital care

  • Laboratory and X-ray services

  • Emergency services
