A new children’s coverage program called KidsCare II is available for a limited
number of eligible children through January 1, 2014. If your family recently received
a letter explaining how this program works, visit the KidsCare
II page for more information.
The KidsCare Office is unable to approve any new applications. Enrollment in the
KidsCare Program has been frozen since January 1, 2010 due to lack of funding for
the program, however, you can still apply. DES will review your application first,
to determine if your family may be eligible for AHCCCS Health Insurance. If your
children are not eligible for AHCCCS Health Insurance, but it appears they may be
eligible for KidsCare, and you are willing to pay a premium, DES will send their
information to the KidsCare Office to add them to the KidsCare waiting list. The
waiting list will be prioritized based on the date of the application. The oldest
application date will be on the top of the list. If funding becomes available, the
KidsCare Office will contact you.
The KidsCare Office is processing renewals and changes for eligible children. Families
with eligible KidsCare children must complete their renewal and make their premiums
on time to avoid losing KidsCare coverage.
The applicant may qualify for this program if the applicant:
If the child's income is too high for AHCCCS Health Insurance, the child may qualify
for KidsCare at a low monthly premium. This chart shows how much money a person

KidsCare will cost no more than $50 a month for one child or no more than $70 a
month no matter how many children are in the household. Per federal law, Native
Americans enrolled with a federally recognized tribe and certain Alaskan Natives
do not have to pay a premium. To get KidsCare at no cost, you must give us proof
of tribal enrollment.
