All Kids is the state’s health insurance program for children from low-income families. Children must live in Illinois and be 18 years of age or younger. Children can qualify if they have had insurance in the past 12 months and may qualify for a difference coverage level if they have been uninsured for 12 months or lost insurance due to job loss or COBRA termination. Check with All Kids to verify that your child is eligible for coverage. You can download an application, apply online at www.allkids.com [2], or call the All Kids hotline to request an application.
