Free or Low-Cost Health and Dental Insurance for Kids
Your child and their siblings could be one of the 147,000 children eligible for completely free or low-cost health and dental insurance through Florida KidCare – even if one or both parents are working.
Approximately 2.4 million children rely on Florida KidCare for the head-to-toe coverage they need from birth through the end of age 18. Florida KidCare is designed to provide services to children at each stage of growth and development. Health and dental services are delivered through quality plans that offer a choice of local doctors, dentists, specialists, hospitals, pharmacies and other health care providers. Benefits include but are not limited to:
- Doctor Visits
- Vision & Hearing
- Dental Care
- Hospital Stays
- Mental Health Services
Florida KidCare includes free, subsidized and full-pay options based on a family’s household size and annual income. Most families pay nothing at all for coverage, and many pay just $15 or $20 a month. Families who do not qualify for free or subsidized coverage may purchase a competitively priced full-pay plan. If you’re interested in applying for Florida KidCare coverage for your child(ren), use the Eligibility Calculator to estimate what your monthly premium payment would be.
Florida KidCare is available to every child. Lawfully residing immigrant children are eligible without a waiting period, and parent immigration status will never be asked.
With no application fee and year-round enrollment, the time to apply is always now. Simply fill out the application, and Florida KidCare will match your child with the right option. Apply online and check your eligibility at floridakidcare.org/school or call 1-888-540-KIDS (5437).
