Many families cannot afford health insurance coverage offered through their jobs, yet they earn too much to receive other assistance. The result is that many children are not getting the preventive healthcare that they need, meaning more sick days from school and more missed work days by parents and caregivers.
ALL Kids is a low-cost comprehensive health insurance program for children under age 19. Upon enrollment, it provides quality medical care including preventive, dental and eye care. It is provided through the Alabama Department of Public Health. For more information or to apply for insurance phone: 1.888.373.5437 or visit their website at www.adph.org/allkids/.
