Illinois Cares About Comprehensive Children’s Healthcare
Illinois is a leader in making sure that everyone in the state enjoys health insurance and dental coverage. They have many programs administered through Medicaid that assist low-income residents who need help paying medical bills of all kinds. The Illinois All Kids insurance plan is a comprehensive health plan for any child in the state that needs coverage.
The All Kids Care Illinois program offers much more than just emergency hospital care. It’s designed to let your children enjoy the benefits of regular checkups and wellness care, not just treatment when they fall ill. It covers things like optometrists and eyeglasses, too. Illinois All Kids Insurance also covers regular dental care, and many orthodontic procedures, including braces.
While all patients don’t automatically qualify for braces under AllKids insurance, you can find out if you can get braces for your child during a free consultation at any of the Orthodontic Experts convenient locations. Whether you live in Chicago, anywhere in Cook County, or any of the surrounding counties, there’s an office near you.
How to Qualify for Illinois All Kids Insurance
The requirements for All Kids in Illinois are less complicated than many other healthcare programs in other states. Any child will be eligible for coverage if they are residents of the State of Illinois, they are 18 years of age or younger, and their parents meet the income limits. Limits are based on the size of the family as well as monthly income
The Four Levels of Coverage for All Kids in Illinois
There are four different levels of policies for All Kids health insurance:
• All Kids Assist – If you have a large family with a modest income, or a small family with a very low income, you might be eligible for All Kids Assist. It’s the most comprehensive coverage level, and there are no monthly premiums and no co-payments due at time of service. It’s designed to allow parents to avoid having to skip needed healthcare because of an inability to pay
• All Kids Share – If you make between $2,972 and $3,173 a month and have a family of four, you’ll be eligible for All Kids Share coverage. While there are no monthly premiums, you will have a modest $100 total deductible for the year for all services for the whole family
• All Kids Premium Level 1 – A family of four making between $3,174 and $4,244 a month is eligible for All Kids Premium Level 1. You’ll pay a monthly premium of $15 for one child, $25 for two children, and an additional $5 per month for each additional child. The $100 yearly deductible for the whole family also applies
• All Kids Premium Level 2 – A family of four making between $4,225 and $6,426 per month is eligible for Premium Level 2 All Kids in Illinois. You’ll pay $40 per month per child in premiums, with a maximum monthly premium of $80 per month no matter how many children are covered. There’s also a $500 deductible per child per year, but it only applies to hospital care
Regular Dental Care Is Important
As you can see, All Kids Care Illinois is designed to make sure that every child in the state receives great medical care at a price every family can afford. These insurance policies also include regular dental care, so there’s no reason your children shouldn’t have healthy teeth and gums, too. Dr. Yarmolyuk and Dr. Arboleda-Lopez want to remind patients that they gladly welcome all forms of Medicaid insurance payments, including Public Aid, FamilyCare, Tarjeta Medica, and of course, All Kids in Illinois insurance. Unlike some other dental practices, Orthodontic Experts don’t limit the number of Medicaid patients they accept.
