How to Find Affordable Health Insurance in the State of Alaska

Alaska Affordable Health InsuranceThrough the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Health Care Services, a number of programs are available to make health care more affordable to low-income residents of Alaska.

Some of the state-funded programs include the Chronic & Acute Medical Assistance (CAMA) program for citizens age 21-35 with ongoing medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension and mental illness. This program is for those who have very low incomes and do not qualify for Medicaid and have no health insurance.

Medicaid, a federal program managed by the state, provides financial assistance to pay for medical services for low-income people. Alaska's Medicaid now includes $1,150 in dental care for citizens age 21 and older who are on Medicaid. This includes exams, cleanings, fillings, root canals and dentures. Denali KidCare is Alaska's state program that provides health insurance coverage for children up to age 18 and pregnant women in low-income families.

For citizens who do not qualify for Medicaid, CAMA or Denali KidCare can contact the Division of Health Care Services for a variety of other healthcare agencies and organizations that can provide assistance to those in need.
