It’s a staggering number, right? According to Florida KidCare, in 2019, approximately 343,000 kids in our state were uninsured. And that was BEFORE the pandemic. Of those uninsured children, more than half were eligible for free or low-cost coverage through Florida KidCare. Connecting parents of uninsured children with this critically important resource is something that resonates with me personally.
Florida KidCare came in extremely handy for my family in 2014 when I lost my job and decided to become a full-fledged MOMpreneur. #dailybocaavery was less than a year old and I was lowkey freaking out that I wouldn’t be able to afford her pediatrician visits. Luckily, I didn’t have to worry. I was able to #CountOnKidCare.
I’m so excited to announce my family and I have once again partnered with Florida KidCare to share more information with Modern Boca Mom readers over the next few months.
But what is Florida KidCare Health and Dental Coverage?
Florida KidCare is designed specifically with kids in mind. Their coverage provides children with access to the services they need 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 healthcare providers.
Florida KidCare offers free, subsidized and full-pay plans based on family income and household size. And the best part is that most families pay nothing at all! Competitively priced full-pay plans are available for Families who do not qualify for free or subsidized coverage. With year-round enrollment, families can apply at their convenience.
Did you know Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach are among the counties in Florida with the highest number of uninsured children? If your child doesn’t have health and dental coverage, what’s holding you back from exploring Florida KidCare? Don’t delay and apply today!
