Affordable Care Act (ACA)
The "Affordable Care Act" (ACA) is the name of the comprehensive healthcare reform law and its amendments that addresses health insurance coverage, healthcare costs and preventive care. Many individuals and families in Georgia who did not previously have access to insurance coverage may now qualify for coverage at a low cost or no cost.

We assist you in submitting your child's application for Medicaid or Georgia's low-cost health insurance program for working families, PeachCare for Kids™. These program help ensure that your children, up to age 19, receive healthcare through access to affordable health insurance.

Medicaid for pregnant women pays for medical care, including labor and delivery, for up to six months after giving birth. If you qualify, you can be entitled to a full range of Medicaid covered services, including physician visits, prescriptions, and inpatient and outpatient hospital services.

If your child gets sick while at school, they can receive care from our school-based providers. Instead of you having to take time off work to hopefully secure a same-day appointment with your regular pediatrician, you can have peace of mind knowing we are taking good care of your child. Plus, the sooner we diagnose and treat your child, the fewer sick days they might need away from school, and the likelihood of their sickness spreading to other students is reduced.
