Health Choice logoThe North Carolina Health Choice (NCHC) Health Insurance Program for Children is a comprehensive health coverage program for low-income children. The goal of the NCHC Program is to reduce the number of uninsured children in the State. If your family makes too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to afford private or employer-sponsored health insurance, your child (ren) may qualify for NCHC.
