Getting health insurance coverage for your kids starts with a phone call to us. Coverage starts as low as $15 per month. You can NOT apply online. To get Florida KidCare healthcare coverage for your children, you must speak with a Cover Jacksonville Application Assistor. Together you will fill out a Florida KidCare application. There are three easy ways to contact us to enroll:
1. Call 2-1-1.
From your phone, simply dial 2-1-1 to speak to an operator. Let the operator know you are interested in Cover Jacksonville and enrolling for health insurance coverage for your children. The United Way 2-1-1 operator will ask you some basic information and will, with your permission, make an appointment for you to meet with a health insurance assistor who will help you obtain the best coverage for your children based on your personal situation.
2. Attend an upcoming event.
Throughout Jacksonville, we will be participating in community events to spread the word about this special opportunity for the children of Jacksonville. The Cover Jacksonville grant provides for 9,000 children to get coverage. Check out our Enrollment Events page for days and times. Be sure to bring your important information with you. We'll have experts available to answer your questions.
