Enrollment for KidsCare II open for limited time
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Enrollment in KidsCare II, Arizona’s temporary Children’s Health Insurance Program, is now open until Dec. 31, 2012. Rep. Martin Quezada, D-Avondale (District 13), is working to keep Arizona parents informed about the program and eligibility requirements.
“Enrollment for KidsCare II is open again,” Quezada said. “Parents have until the end of the year to apply for this low-cost, comprehensive health insurance program. The monthly premiums for coverage range between $10 and $60, making quality health care affordable for many working parents. Parents should apply as soon as possible, as enrollment is limited.”
