I am sorry to read about loss of employment.

You need to check with your former employer about eligibility for COBRA health insurance continuation coverage. Your Human Resources Department should have given you this information as part of your lay-off. Click here for more information on COBRA. Also, whether your children would be eligible for Medicaid or CHIP would depend on whether they meet the requirements for the program. For more information, click here.
