PEACHCARE FOR KIDS - Gwinnett Divorce, Legitimation and Paternity

Posted by Doug Lewis | Oct 15, 2015 | 0 Comments

Heath Insurance Coverage for minor children is an issue involved in most divorce, legitimation and paternity cases filed in Gwinnett County Superior Court. The best interests of the minor child(ren) standard is what the Gwinnett County Superior Court judges follow in Gwinnett divorce, legitimation and paternity cases and the judges want there to be health insurance coverage for each minor child involved in the case whether it be by an employer-sponsored plan, an individual health insurance policy, or by the State of Georgia's PeachCare for Kids Program.   

Peachcare for Kids is a comprehensive health care program for eligible uninsured children under the age of 19 living in the State of Georgia.  Each child has a primary care provider and is enrolled in a Care Management Organization (CMO).  There are three (3) CMOs : Peach State Health Plan, WellCare, and Amerigroup Community Care.

The health benefits provided by the PeachCare for Kids program include: primary services, preventive services, specialists, dental and vision care, mental health care, hospitalization, emergency room services, and prescription medications.
