FAMIS Select

FAMIS Select helps families pay for employer-sponsored health insurance. It offers families with children enrolled in FAMIS more health care coverage options. At least one child must already be enrolled in FAMIS before the family can enroll in FAMIS Select. The FAMIS Select program allows families to choose between covering their children through FAMIS or through an employer-sponsored health plan.

Families who choose to enroll in FAMIS Select can get up to $100 per FAMIS Select enrolled child per month to help pay their family premium.

Use the Worksheet below to help you decide if FAMIS or FAMIS Select is the right choice for your family.



How Can I Enroll My Child in FAMIS Select

A child is eligible for FAMIS Select if they are enrolled in FAMIS and have access to an employer-sponsored health plan. Once your child is approved for FAMIS, you should complete the FAMIS Select online application and submit it electronically to the FAMIS Select Unit. Proof of insurance payment must be included with the application in order to process.

What are the Benefits of FAMIS Select?

  • FAMIS Select may allow your child to see a special health care provider. In some cases an employer plan may have different doctors in their plan. Enrolling in the employer plan through FAMIS Select may allow your child to see a doctor or dentist who does not take FAMIS.
  • For some families, the FAMIS Select payment will be enough to make health coverage for the whole family affordable. Families enrolled in FAMIS Select get up to $100 per enrolled child per month to help pay the family health insurance premium. The total monthly payment cannot exceed the total amount of the family premium.

Two Examples of FAMIS Select Families:

A family with 3 children enrolled in FAMIS Select:

  • Health plan family premium = $350/month
  • FAMIS Select premium payment = $300/month
  • Cost to family = $50/month in health insurance premiums plus the cost of any co-pays, coinsurance, and deductibles.

A family with 4 children enrolled in FAMIS Select

  • Health plan family premium = $350/month
  • FAMIS Select premium payment = $350/month
  • Cost to family = $0/month in health insurance premiums plus the cost of any co-pays, coinsurance, and deductibles.

It is important to carefully compare health plans and choose the best plan for your family.
