What is All Kids?
The All Kids Program is a complete healthcare program for every uninsured child in Illinois. Illinois is the first state in the nation to ensure that every child, regardless of medical conditions or income, has access to healthcare.
What does All Kids cover?
All Kids covers all the healthcare a child may need. All Kids pays for doctor visits, hospital visits, dental care, vision care, prescription drugs, medical equipment, mental health services and much more.
What are the income requirements?
With All Kids there are no limits to the income a family can have.
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 one child and $80 a month for two or more children 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-payment 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.
Where can I get an application?
Applications for All Kids are available in the General Assistance Office of Palatine Township, 721 S. Quentin Road Suite 101, Palatine.
What happened to 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.
