KIdCare Insurance Sign-up Day: Halifax Health – Healthy Communities, in collaboration with several key community partners, will present the Florida KidCare Enrollment Event and Family Health Fair on Saturday, September 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Volusia Mall, 1700 West International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona Beach. Families with children who are in need of health insurance coverage are encouraged to attend this free event to learn more about Florida KidCare, the State of Florida’s health insurance program that covers children ages 0 through 18 years of age. Most families who enroll do not have to pay for the coverage, while many pay only $15 to $20 per month. Full pay options are also available. On-site application assistance will be available at the event for eligible families applying for and renewing Florida KidCare coverage. “In Volusia and Flagler counties, an estimated 6,800 children have no health insurance coverage. Many parents do not realize that their children are eligible for KidCare coverage and that’s why we are hosting this event – to educate families on the no-cost to affordable options available to them,” explains Steven Parris, community health and outreach supervisor for Halifax Health – Healthy Communities. Those seeking to enroll in the Florida KidCare program should bring copies of the following:
· Social Security numbers (or document numbers for any legal immigrants who need insurance);
· employer and income information for their family (i.e. pay stubs, W-2 forms, or wage and tax statements);
· policy numbers for any current health insurance; and
· information about any job-related health insurance available to their family.
In addition, several community organizations will be in attendance to provide information on healthcare-related programs and services available to local families, including the Florida Department of Health – Volusia County, Florida Department of Children and Families, the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia, Azalea Health, The Volusia Flagler Family YMCA and the United Way of Volusia and Flagler Counties, among others. These participating organizations will be on-hand to provide immunizations, developmental screenings for young children, blood pressure checks, and information about the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). Free vision screening will be provided by the DeLand Lions Club. Members of Halifax Health Medical Center’s pediatric team will also be in attendance to provide information on the hospital’s services for children and infants. The Florida KidCare Enrollment Event and Family Health Fair will also feature fun, family-friendly activities, including music and dance, giveaways, games and more. For more information about this free event, call 386.425.7920.
