    would also suggest you look into Medicaid, which the CHIPS program may be, but here in Alabama we also have a program for kids whose parents have some income but not enough to have private insurance, but is not Medicaid. I think is called ALL Kids or something like that. BLUE
    PS most medical coverage will not actually cover learning disability type tx. That should be addressed thru you school district under IDEA.
