Changes coming to Florida KidCare full pay program

2linelo [Converted]Beginning October 1, families enrolled in the Florida KidCare full-pay program will be shifted to Affordable Care Act-compliant plans with premiums up to 95 percent higher than the previous plans.

The cost of the subsidized Florida KidCare plans — for those families under 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level — will remain the same ($0, $15 or $20 per month), although the available providers may change. The increase in premiums impacts coverage for children in families with income exceeding 200 percent of the FPL— an amount greater than $48,500 for a family of four.
