If you are seeking health care coverage for a child (under the age of 19), the chart below will indicate the best initial place to apply for health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Children with household incomes of 255% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) or less should apply through the state of Indiana at http://www.dfrbenefits.in.gov/ using the state application. Children under 19 with household incomes between 255% and 400% FPL may be eligible for subsidized coverage through the federal health exchange and should apply at http://www.healthcare.gov/ using the federal application. Children with household incomes over 400% FPL may apply for coverage at http://www.healthcare.gov/, but may also seek coverage via the existing commercial health insurance market.
