Q
Are children who are listed as dependants on their parent’s BCEA file eligible for dental and optical supplements through the Healthy Kids Program? Or is the Healthy Kids Program solely for low-income families who are not on assistance? 

A
The Healthy Kids Program is for children from low-income families when the family is not in receipt of assistance. Children whose parents are in receipt of assistance are eligible for optical and dental supplements through their income assistance, hardship assistance, or disability assistance file.
