Macon County Health Department is an All Kids application agent. If you are uninsured and participate in Macon County Health Department services we can assist you to apply for insurance coverage through the ALL KIDS program.
What is All Kids
Governor Blagojevich’s All Kids Program is a complete healthcare program for every 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.
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 each child 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-pay 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.
What if my children have health insurance
If your family has health insurance and your monthly income qualifies for Family Care/All Kids Share, Premium Level 1 or Rebate, you can choose the plan that is best for your family. Family Care/All Kids Share and All Kids Premium provide a medical card to help cover services for your children that your plan does not cover. Family Care/All Kids Rebate reimburses the policyholder for a portion of the premium they pay for health insurance. If you want to apply for the Family Care/All Kids Rebate plan, have your employer or insurance agent complete Part B of the Rebate Form.
What About Kid Care
Illinois’ Kid Care program is now part of All Kids! If you have Kid Care, your children will get All Kids automatically. You do not have to re-apply.
