    Florida KidCare is our state's free or low cost health insurance program for children under 19 years old.  Your child may qualify for comprehensive health coverage through Florida KidCare, even if one or both parents work.  Getting health coverage for your children before they become sick is very important.

    Children with health insurance miss fewer days of school, and applying for Florida Kid Care is easy.  Any family can apply, and many pay $20 or less per month to insure their children.  Most pay nothing at all! Click the links for additional information.​
