KidCare Outreach and Enrollment Initiative
Most of Florida’s 500K+ uninsured children are already eligible for Florida KidCare, our state’s health insurance program for children without private insurance, but many parents don't know that their children are eligible or may not know how to enroll in the program. The Movement will focus on enhancing already-existing KidCare outreach initiatives across Florida through targeted, grassroots enrollment and broad-based school outreach. With guidance from Florida Covering Kids and Families (FL-CKF), Nick Duran, The Movement's health care coordinator, is working with regional KidCare coalition partners and experts to identify opportunities for The Movement’s supporters and volunteers to distribute KidCare materials and/or assist in enrolling children. He also is forging relationships with the local school districts with the goal of having them agree to make KidCare outreach, enrollment and retention a priority. Interested in volunteering in or collaborating on this effort? Contact Nick today to see how you can get involved or help The Movement in these efforts.

Legislative Advocacy and Public Policy
KIDSWELL FLORIDA - Nick Duran, Health Care Coordinator, is working with Florida CHAIN, the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy, The Children's Trust and the Florida Child Healthcare Coalition to promote expansion and access to health insurance for Florida’s children. KidsWell Florida wants every Florida child to have quality, affordable health coverage. We are a statewide collaboration of families, service providers, and business and civic leaders joining forces with other Floridians to close gaps in public and private health insurance for children. We believe a strong coalition and coordinated advocacy will create policies to help our State’s children get and keep health insurance.
