Details

There is no charge for Medicaid for children (KidCare Medicaid). For other Florida KidCare programs, monthly premiums depend on your household's size and income. Most families pay $15 or $20 a month. If you need to pay more, Florida KidCare will let you know. Make checks or money orders payable to Florida KidCare. Do not send cash. If your child (or children) is approved for Medicaid or denied coverage, your premium payment will be refunded. You may have to pay small charges or co-payments for some services. A child who is a member of a federally recognized American Indian, Alaskan Native or Canadian Indian tribe may qualify for no-cost Florida KidCare coverage.
