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.
