Albany- Thousands of children in Georgia don't have health insurance.

There may be about 2,000 eligible children in Dougherty County. So workers with Phoebe Putney's Community Health Institute going in search of those eligible for PeachCare for Kids, a state program that offers low-cost health insurance for children.

 "Peachcare for kids is only $10 per month for just one child and $20 per month for two or more children," said Ava O'Neal, the PeachCare Outreach Coordinator for Phoebe Putney. In addition to that a lot of people don't realize that you can not only be unemployed in order to qualify for Peachcare, but in addition to that the income guidlines are tremendous."

Tables will be set up at Wal-Mart and K-mart on Friday and Saturday and at the Albany Civic Center Friday thru Sunday. For more information on income guidelines, call 439-0020.
