Hawki: Free and Low Cost Insurance for Kids

About Hawki

Hawki is affordable medical and dental insurance through the state of Iowa. Unlike other programs with more restrictive income guidelines, Hawki coverage can help families at a wide variety of income levels. The monthly premium costs are based on income, but no family pays more than $40, regardless of how many children they have. In fact, this resource is open to many families that are unaware of their eligibility - making Hawki a highly underutilized tool in Iowa.

EveryStep serves eligible families in Polk, Dallas, Jackson, and Clinton Counties in Iowa. If you live outside of those areas, but would like to connect with someone about Hawki, please download this statewide service map to find support.
