SCDHHS to insure more children through Express Lane eligibility
Placeholder Image
Approximately 602 Kershaw County children who are currently eligible for South Carolina’s Medicaid program but are not signed up will be enrolled and immediately able to receive services through a coordinated care health plan, the South Carolina Department of Health Human Services (SCDHHS) announced today. This is part of the initiative of SCDHHS to enroll 65,000 eligible children state-wide. Beginning this week, families who receive benefits from the Department of Social Services’ (DSS) food stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs, but whose children are not also enrolled in Medicaid, will receive letters informing them of their children’s eligibility.
