Low income families in South Dakota (with or without private health insurance) may be eligible for FREE or low cost medical assistance including regular checkups, Well-Child Care exams, dental care, and vision care.
To be eligible, the family must consist of a parent or other adult caretaker relative and a dependent child. A caretaker relative may be parent, grandparent, brother, sister, stepparent, etc. A dependent child is a child under age 18 who is living with a parent or a caretaker relative. If a child is 18 years old and still a fulltime student in high school, the child is considered a dependent child if he or she is expected to complete high school before reaching age 19.
