All Kids Insurance
Call the Knox County Health Department for an appointment at 309-344-0319
The All Kids program was created, to make healthcare a reality for hundreds of thousands of families across the state. Illinois is the first state in the nation to provide affordable, comprehensive health insurance for every child. Of the 250,000 children in Illinois without health insurance, more than half come from working and middle class families who earn too much to qualify for state programs like Kid Care, but not enough to afford private health insurance. Through All Kids, comprehensive health insurance is available to every uninsured child, at rates their parents can afford.
The All Kids program offers Illinois uninsured children comprehensive healthcare that includes doctors visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, vision care, dental care and medical devices like eyeglasses and asthma inhalers. Parents pay monthly premiums for the coverage, but rates for middle-income families are significantly lower than they are on the private market.
MPE is a medical card for pregnant women, which provides coverage for prenatal care and infant delivery coverage. The staff at Knox County Health Department can assist applicants with the process, and ensure all information is attached to the application, for a smooth and complete outcome. This service is provided along with the WIC appointment, to ensure a one stop visit.
