KidsCare coverage has been restored for Arizona children who do not qualify for AHCCCS, Arizona’s Medicaid program. Children whose household income is between 133% and 200% of the Federal Poverty Limit (FPL) now have access to full Medicaid benefits for a minimal monthly premium. This means children in a family of four could qualify with an annual household income up to $48,600. North Country HealthCare views the restoring of KidsCare as a benefit to the uninsured and underinsured children of Arizona.

Beginning July 26, 2016, all North Country HealthCare locations will provide free, bilingual enrollment assistance for families and parents applying for KidsCare. Coverage will begin on September 1, 2016.

 There are three important things to know about KidsCare:

  1. Your children may be closer than ever before to being insured! AHCCCS estimates approximately 30,000 Arizona children may be eligible to enroll in KidsCare coverage. Your child can be eligible for KidsCare, even if he or she is already enrolled in another health insurance plan. Contact a certified application counselor at North Country HealthCare for more information.
  2. KidsCare offers the full array of AHCCCS benefits, including dental care. Eligible children will receive coverage through health plans contracted with the AHCCCS Administration.
  3. Parents insuring their children with KidsCare pay a minimal monthly premium depending on their household income. Monthly premiums can range from $10 for one child in a household at the lower income range, up to $70 for multiple children in households at the upper income range.
  4. Starting July 26, 2016, applications can be submitted online at healthearizonaplus.gov. In each of the communities it serves, North Country HealthCare has certified application counselors on hand to assist with completing online applications. To schedule a free enrollment appointment, please call 928.522.9580 or 928.453.9596.
