Child Medical

Welcome to the Medicaid for Children information page for El Paso County Department of Human Services.

Medicaid programs for low-income children age 0 through 18 are based on citizenship, legal residence and household income.  Medicaid provides medical benefits including inpatient and outpatient hospital, physician services, well child checks, immunizations, vision care including prescription glasses, prescription drugs, dental and mental health care.  

Child Medical

It is important to obtain a primary doctor and to see them for all medical needs that are not emergencies. The hospital emergency room should only be used for life or limb threatening illness or injury. Remember if your doctor can treat your illness or injury in the office, Medicaid may not pay emergency room costs and you will be responsible for paying the bill. The primary care doctor will arrange referrals for other medical services.
