Let’s Talk Cost
- There is no charge for Medicaid for children
- Monthly premiums depend on your household’s size and income. Most families pay $15 or $20 a month. If you are required to pay more, Florida KidCare will let you know
- 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 or Alaskan Native tribe may qualify for no-cost Florida KidCare coverage
Families who are not eligible for premium assistance may enroll into Florida KidCare (MediKids or Florida Healthy Kids only) at the “full-pay” premium rate.
