Extra Help for Children of Migrant Workers

A migrant farm worker is a person who moves to different places to follow the crops or farm jobs. This person works either:

  • On farms.
  •  In fields.

OR

  • As a food packer. 

You are probably a migrant farm worker if you have done one of these jobs in the past 2 years:

  • Prepare the soil to produce crops. 
  • Grow fruits, flowers, shrubs, plants, vegetables, or flowering plants.
  • Plant trees.
  • Raise or care for livestock or poultry.
  • Work on a dairy farm. 

If you call your Medicaid medical plan or dental plan and tell them you are a migrant farm worker:

  • They will help you set up doctor or dentist visits for your children.
  • They will let the doctor or dentist know they need to see your children quickly before you have to leave the area to go to the next farm job.
