Some Florida KidCare programs may have limited space. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. When MediKids, Healthy Kids and the Children’s Medical Services are full, enrollment for these programs will close, but Medicaid is always open for children who qualify.
Families can call 1-888-540-KIDS (5437) or complete an online application to begin the application process.
An application will be valid for 120 days after Florida KidCare receives it. Florida KidCare will notify you if the application process is not completed within 120 days for MediKids, Healthy Kids or the Children’s Medical Services. To restart the application process, call 1-888-540-KIDS (5437). An application that is older than 120 days may still be used to determine if your children are eligible for Medicaid.
Families must renew their accounts every year in order to continue coverage. You will be notified by mail when it is time for you to renew. Renewing families can access their online accounts to continue coverage.
