Reporting from Illinois Public Radio's Amanda Vinicky used in this report.
Illinois had offered health insurance coverage to all children. But now there's an income cap to get the state-backed coverage - critics call it shortsighted.
As the name "All Kids" suggests, all children were eligible, but as of July 1, only families within 300 percent of the poverty level can apply.
That's an income cap of $67,000 for a family of four.
