Access to healthcare is vital. Children need to be healthy to reach their full potential. To stay healthy, children need to have regular checkups, vision and dental care, and get medical attention if they get sick or injured.
ALL Kids is a low-cost, comprehensive healthcare coverage program for children under age 19. Benefits include regular checkups and immunizations, sick child doctor visits, prescriptions, vision and dental care, hospitalization, mental health and substance abuse services, and much more.
Healthcare Coverage Is Important
Children need to be healthy to reach their full potential. To stay healthy, children need to have regular checkups, vision and dental care, and get medical attention if they get sick or injured. By preventing serious illnesses, overall family health costs will be lower, and when your child does need to go to the doctor you can afford to take them.
Children who have healthcare coverage have a better chance of being healthy and are less likely to miss school because they are sick. By helping them go to school every day ready to learn, you can help boost your child’s performance in school today and in the future.
Healthcare Coverage Facts
Children with healthcare coverage are more likely to:
- Stay healthier with regular checkups.
- Get needed immunizations.
- Get medical care early so a small illness doesn’t turn in to a big one.
- Miss fewer school days due to illness.
Teens with healthcare coverage are able to get:
- Skin care (a doctor can usually cure acne).
- School physicals for sports.
- Physical therapy if they get injured
With ALL Kids, parents are able to:

How ALL Kids Works
Choose a Doctor and Dentist
As soon as your child is enrolled in ALL Kids, choose a doctor and dentist. Call them to make your child an appointment for a check-up visit. Don’t put this off! These check-up visits will allow small health and dental problems to be caught early, preventing them from becoming serious problems later.
When your child needs medical and dental care, you must use a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama (BCBSAL) Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) provider. The PPO network is a group of doctors, dentists, pharmacies, hospitals and outpatient facilities enrolled as BCBSAL providers to offer services to ALL Kids enrollees at special, prearranged rates.
You can choose any doctor who is enrolled as a PPO provider. To find a preferred provider in Alabama, you can look in your ALL Kids Preferred Provider Directory, call the BCBSAL dedicated customer service number at 1-800-760-6851, or visit BCBSAL. There is no deductible when you use a PPO provider. Some services may require a small co-pay.
ALL Kids Costs – Premiums and Co-Pays
Affordable premiums range from $52 to $104 per child, per year. The fee group for which your child qualifies will determine the premium you will pay for your child’s coverage.
Your premium does not have to be paid in full before you use your ALL Kids card for healthcare services. However, your premium must be paid before the contract expires. We encourage you to pay your premium as soon as possible. Don’t get caught at the end of the year owing all of your premium!
If your child is in the Low Fee or the Fee group, some services may require a co-pay. A co-pay is a small fee you may have to pay up front when your child sees a provider. There are no co-pays for preventive services like regular check-ups, immunizations, dental cleanings, and vision exams.
To Make Payments
- Make checks and money orders out to ALL Kids. Do not send cash!
- Write your Contact ID number on your check or money order.
