Florida Covering Kids & Families

Business Outreach

Sky RisesFlorida Covering Kids & Families works to create and maintain business partnerships within Florida communities to provide a brighter, healthier future for Florida's children. Strong business partnerships help to increase contact with communities, which improves awareness about Florida KidCare. When children are ill, it costs businesses $12 billion annually due to employee absences and lost time. Working families that have health insurance for their children are less likely to miss work. Business support builds community awareness of uninsured children and helps to legitimize these useful public programs. Helping to spread the word about Florida KidCare makes good business sense.
