Through Florida KidCare, the state of Florida offers health insurance for children from birth through age 18, even if one or both parents are working.
The Healthy Start JMT Coalition is a KidCare Coalition, which means that we promote and support the activities associated with ensuring children have access to health care through affordable insurance.
How KidCare Covers Children
Florida KidCare includes four different parts. When you apply for the insurance, Florida KidCare will check which part your child may qualify for based on age and family income.
Children ages 1 through 4.
Children ages 5 through 18.
