Quality Health Insurance Benefits
Florida KidCare is designed precisely with children in mind. That is why its health insurance coverage provides your child with access to the services they require at each stage of growth and development. Health and dental services are provided through quality health insurance plans that offer a choice of local doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, dentists, specialists, and other healthcare providers.
Florida children’s health insurance plan benefits include but are not limited to: Doctor visits, surgeries, check-ups, immunizations, visions and hearing, prescriptions, dental care, emergencies, mental health, and hospital stays.
Free or Low-Cost
Florida KidCare includes free, subsidized, and full-pay options depending on family income and family size. Most families pay nothing at all, and many pay as little as just $15 or $20 a month for all kids in the household. Families who do not qualify for free or subsidized coverage may buy a competitively priced full-pay plan.
