The Florida Healthy Kids Program (KidCare) was created to help improve access to comprehensive health insurance for Florida’s uninsured children. The program serves as a source of funds by collecting local, state, federal, and family money to pay premiums to commercial health insurers who underwrite the risk associated with the policies. Families who would otherwise be unable to afford the desired coverage can obtain it while paying only a fraction of the premium. Coverage can insure services ranging from preventive care to major surgery. Healthy Kids and Kidcare have open enrollment year-round. Coverage begins after the child’s eligibility has been determined and the first month’s premium has been received, if required. You can learn more at www.healthykids.org or http://www.floridakidcare.org
Cover Florida plans are for applicants between 19 and 64 years old. They need to have gone without coverage for at least 6 months and not be eligible for public insurance programs like Medicaid or Medicare. There can be exceptions to the 6 months of no coverage rule. Having a pre-existing condition will not be denied coverage; however some plans may not pay for treatments of specific pre-existing conditions for the first year. After one year, the plan will cover the treatment. For more details, visit the website: http://www.coverfloridahealthcare.com/
