Healthcare for All Kids ↓

Healthcare for All Kids


All Kids Hotline 1-866-ALL-KIDS (1-866-255-5437) TTY: 1-877-204-1012

The General Assembly and Governor have agreed to cut spending for the Medicaid and All Kids programs by about 10% beginning July 1, 2012. These cuts are necessary to save the program because the state has run out of money to pay for all of it. Visit the HFS Web site for detailed information on the changes.

The All Kids program offers many Illinois children comprehensive healthcare that includes doctors visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, vision care, dental care and medical devices like eyeglasses and asthma inhalers. Some families pay monthly premiums for the coverage, but rates for middle-income families are significantly lower than they are on the private market. For instance, a family of four that earns between $45,000 and $67,000 a year pays a $40 monthly premium per child, and a $10 co-pay per physician visit. Fill out the application today.

KidsClick! was originaly created by a group of librarians at the Ramapo Catskill Library System, as a logical step in addressing concerns about the role of public libraries in guiding their young users to valuable and age appropriate web sites. RCLS’s first effort to address this need was to compile a single page of search input boxes from the handful of existing databases of selected or screened sites.

KidsClick → Go to Site opened in September of 2002 as a free public service to teach children to read with phonics.
