KidsCare II History
KidsCare II is a new children’s coverage program available May 1, 2012 through December
31, 2013, for a limited number of eligible children. KidsCare II has the same benefits
and premium requirements as KidsCare, but with a lower income limit for eligibility.
The income limit for KidsCare II is 175% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), based
on family size. For additional background information on the KidsCare II program,

KidsCare II Background
A child may qualify for this program if the child:
Beginning June 25, 2012, a child may qualify for KidsCare II if the child:
If the child's income is too high for AHCCCS Health Insurance, the child may qualify
for KidsCare II at a low monthly premium if they are at or below 175% FPL. This
chart shows how much money a person can receive each month before taxes (gross monthly
income) and other deductions are subtracted.
*Income limits change every April 1.
KidsCare II will cost no more than $40 a month for one child or no more than $60
a month no matter how many children are in the household. The application must indicate
that the household is willing to pay the premium for coverage. If a child received
KidsCare before and money is owed for past premiums, families will be notified with
the amount due and ways to pay. Children will not be enrolled in KidsCare II until
all past due premiums are paid in full. Per federal law, Native Americans enrolled
with a federally recognized tribe and certain Alaskan Natives do not have to pay
a premium. To get KidsCare II at no cost, you must give us proof of tribal enrollment.
