Services that are covered under hawk-i include:

  • Doctor visits
  • Hospital care
  • Prescriptions
  • Vaccines
  • Emergencies
  • Surgery
  • Dental care
  • Vision exams
  • Mental health

When a child is enrolled they will be eligible for 12 months. Coverage must be renewed every year. Renewal forms must be completed and returned every year in order for coverage to continue.

Marion County Public Health is available for assistance with completing an application or a renewal.

The Covering Kids and Families project in rural Iowa increases awareness of the availability of free or low cost health insurance for children. The South Central Regional Coalition (SCRC) collaborates with partners from Appanoose, Clarke, Decatur, Jasper, Lucas, Marion, Monroe, Poweshiek, Ringgold, and Wayne counties to reach families.
