How much does it cost?

Florida KidCare includes free, subsidized and full-pay options based on family income. Most families pay nothing at all, and many pay as little as $15 or $20 a month for all children in the household. Families who do not qualify for free or subsidized coverage may purchase a competitively priced full-pay plan.

How do you know if you qualify for Florida Kidcare?

Families simpy apply with the help of an All Faiths Food Bank Benefit Specialist, and Florida KidCare does the rest. Based on the age of the child, household size and family income, each child is automatically matched with the best fit of the four Florida KidCare programs.

All children above the age of one are eligible for some form of Florida KidCare coverage through a subsidized or full-pay program.

Children from birth until their first birthday are eligible for Medicaid if their household income is below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
