If you live in Florida and have been trying to get your children affordable, low-cost health insurance, you must get to this event. The Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition, St. Vincent’s HealthCare, Florida KidCare and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville will be holding a free “Springing into Children’s Healthcare” Community Health Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the McDonald’s at 5801 Beach Blvd.
Now the great news is that in addition to getting free health and vision screenings and discount prescription drug cards, the free health fair also offer low-cost health insurance enrollment for children. Volunteers will be on hand to help families enroll their children in affordable, low-cost health insurance programs like Medicaid and Florida KidCare. Northeast Florida’s has a large number of uninsured children and a high rate of emergency room use so if your family does not have health insurance, this is a great opportunity to learn more about these programs and enroll your children in a low-cost health insurance program. Families will also receive boxes of food from Second Harvest Food Bank and be able to apply for the WIC and SNAP programs.
Children can also have their faces painted and visit firefighters and a fire engine!
