How ALL Kids Works

Applications are processed in the order they are received. If your child is enrolled in ALL Kids, you will receive a Welcome Letter from ALL Kids and your child's ALL Kids Card.

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.

Soon after your child is enrolled in ALL Kids, you will receive your premium invoice. Your premium will be due at that time. The invoice will tell you how and where to pay this premium. Your premium does not have to be paid in full before you use your ALL Kids card for healthcare services. However, 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.

Renew Your Child's ALL Kids Coverage Every Year

Your child’s ALL Kids enrollment will last for 12 months. (If your child turns 19 years of age before the end of the 12 months, coverage will end the last day of the child’s birth month.) ALL Kids coverage must be renewed every year. Approximately two months before the "Good Thru" date on your child's ALL Kids card, you will receive a renewal packet.

To be considered for renewal for the upcoming year you must complete, sign and return the renewal packet to ALL Kids and pay any premiums you may owe for the current year before the “Good Thru” date on your child's ALL Kids card. If you do not receive your child’s renewal packet or if you have any questions, please call 1-888-373-KIDS (5437).
