An Act To Amend Title 31 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Medical Coverage For All Delaware Children.


This bill is the Cover All Delaware Children Act. This Act directs the Department of Health and Social Services to develop and operate a medical coverage program for children in Delaware who are not otherwise covered, including children who are not documented. A child resident in the state whose family income is low enough that they would qualify on that basis for Medicaid or CHIP coverage, but is not eligible for Medicaid or other federally funded coverage, is eligible for coverage and medical care under this Act. This Act takes effect January 1, 2023.
