I’m Rich Robleto, the Executive Director of the Florida Healthy Kids Corporation. I’m so glad we’ve found another place to chat! My hope is that we can use this blog as a place to spark healthy conversation about today’s health of Florida’s kids. I’d like this page to be a two-way street where we at FHKC can boil the latest health news, ideas and resources down to blurbs–and where you can ask questions and offer us feedback in real time so we can best assist your family’s needs.
I want to personally thank you for stopping by and tell you a little about myself and Healthy Kids. I was born and educated in Philadelphia and raised my kids and developed my passion for health insurance in Delaware–but have found my home and heart in Tallahassee here at Healthy Kids. I enjoy math, baseball, fishing, golf and water color painting. I live for my family and two grandchildren, and love Disney World almost as much as kids do (but more so for the atmosphere than the rides)!
As parents, I think we can agree that the real value of health insurance for our children may not present itself on a daily basis. Sure, we are glad that we have it when the kids need to see a doctor and/or get a prescription or get their necessary vaccinations–but it’s when the unexpected happens that this benefit can prove its worth. And the trouble is, at that point it could be too late to get it.
Fire insurance companies won’t sell you a policy when your house in on fire. Auto insurers won’t take your application for insurance at the scene of the accident. And health insurers don’t want to take your application at the emergency room. That’s exactly why we need to keep reminding ourselves that no matter what, Kids Oughta Be Covered—at all times!
If you have a child or teen, we’d be pleased to have them join the thousands of other kids who receive the best, quality health benefits at an affordable price. Coverage includes doctor visits, immunizations, dental care, emergency care, hospital stays and much more so your children have less sick days and more time to shine in the classroom, in the studio, and on the field. What’s so remarkable about our coverage is that any parent can apply, regardless of employment or income.
