> Arizona KidsCare
KidsCare is Arizona's health insurance for children under 19. Children ages 18 and younger that qualify can get medical, dental and vision services; all three services combined in one simple plan.
KidsCare is inexpensive; a family's payments are based on the family income and the number of children who qualify. KidsCare will cost no more than $15 a month for one child or no more than $20 a month no matter how many children are in the household. Some families may even receive KidsCare at no cost.
