You may apply for Florida KidCare if your child has other health insurance now. We suggest that you keep your child's current health insurance until you receive an approval letter from Florida KidCare letting you know when your child's new Florida KidCare coverage will start. Florida KidCare coverage starts on the first day of the month after you make your first premium payment.
If your Florida KidCare monthly premium is $15 or $20, your child cannot have other health insurance and Florida KidCare coverage at the same time. You will need to cancel your child's other health insurance before their new Florida KidCare coverage starts. This is a federal law. Please call Florida KidCare customer service at 1-800-821-5437 if you have questions.
