All Kids Training Tour June 22, 2006

Monday, June 19, 2006


Last fall, Governor Rod Blagojevich launched his All Kids program, which gives hundreds of thousands
of uninsured children across Illinois the opportunity to receive low cost or free comprehensive
healthcare coverage, regardless of family income.
We know that in order to reach the communities around the state with our health care programs we
need to make sure that community leaders and social service agencies are informed about what
programs the state offers.
That is why we are inviting you to participate in Governor Blagojevich's ALL Kids Training Tour!
Governor Blagojevich is keeping Illinois healthy and we want to be sure you share information
about the benefits available for your community.
The following programs will be featured:
�� All Kids: low cost or free comprehensive healthcare coverage for children, regardless of
family income.
�� FamilyCare: provides access to affordable healthcare coverage for parents of children ages
18 and younger in Illinois.
�� Illinois Cares Rx: offers Illinois' low-income seniors and persons with disabilities
prescription drug assistance to avoid high out-of-pocket expenses and gaps in coverage
created by the new Medicare Part D program.
�� Illinois Rx Buying Club: offers discounts on prescription drugs without income restrictions,
both brand name and generic, with an average savings of 20 percent.
�� I-Save Rx: helps save up to 80 percent on prescription drugs through drug importation from
Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Invite other
community members to sign up for training as well. We are reaching out to physicians, healthcare
providers, community organizations, businesses and religious leaders to help spread the word about
these new programs -working together we can Keep Illinois Healthy. Space is limited be sure to reserve your seat! Call for more site locations.
