Switchboard is Helping Uninsured Children Receive Health Coverage by offering information about Florida KidCare

Florida KidCare accepts applications year-round from families with uninsured children under the age of 19. Children enrolled in the program have access to preventive care such as regular doctor's visits, immunizations, dental and vision benefits. Most families pay a monthly premium of $15-$20 or possibly nothing at all, depending on eligibility. Families can apply online 24-hours a day on the Florida KidCare website (www.floridakidcare.org), which is a one stop source for information about program benefits, costs, and enrollment status. They may also call 1-888-540-5437 to speak to someone about applying.
