In Georgia, Medicaid is run by the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH). Medicaid’s managed care program is called Georgia Families®, and PeachCare for Kids® is another program serving uninsured children in Georgia. Children who are eligible for either of these — and are enrolled with a Care Management Organization — can see a Kaiser Permanente pediatrician. With Kaiser Permanente, your children have access to participating doctors at our medical offices throughout metro Atlanta and in Athens.

Medicaid with Kaiser Permanente in Georgia provides a core set of health benefits, including doctor visits, and immunizations. If your child is eligible for Medicaid, Kaiser Permanente covers health services like:

Doctor office visits

Your child can get care from a pediatrician or nurse.

Well child check-ups
