The parents and guardians of eligible uninsured children pursuant to this section are responsible for a monthly premium as required by annual state appropriation; provided that the total aggregate cost sharing for a family covered by these sections shall not exceed five percent of such family's income for the years involved.  No co-payments or other cost sharing is permitted with respect to benefits for well-baby and well-child care including age-appropriate immunizations.  Cost-sharing provisions for their children under sections 208.631 to 208.658 shall not exceed the limits established by 42 U.S.C.
