What is All Kids?
All Kids is Illinois’ program for children who need comprehensive, affordable health insurance, regardless of family income, immigration status or health condition. Every child deserves the chance to grow up healthy. With All Kids, your children will be able to get the care they need, when they need it. It means you can take your child to the doctor for a regular check-up, to the dentist to fill a cavity or to the eye doctor to get a prescription for glasses.
What does All Kids cover?
All Kids is complete health insurance for your child. All Kids covers doctor visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, vision care, dental care and eyeglasses. All Kids covers regular check-ups and immunizations (shots). All Kids also covers special services like medical equipment, speech therapy and physical therapy for children who need them.
How does it work?
All Kids will cost most families a lot less than private insurance. For instance, a family of four that earns $50,000 a year will pay $40 a month for each child plus a $10 co-pay for each doctor visit. A family of four that earns $29,000 a year has no monthly payment and pays a $2 co-pay for each doctor visit.
All Kids has an annual limit on the total co-pays most families have to pay for their children’s healthcare. Total costs for each family vary by income.
Who is eligible?
Children age 18 or younger who live with their families in Illinois and who need health insurance can get All Kids.
What about KidCare?
Illinois’ KidCare program is now part of All Kids! If you have KidCare, your children will get All Kids automatically. You do not have to reapply.
