Medicaid is the medical assistance program that provides access to health care for low-income families and individuals.  Medicaid also assists the elderly and people with disabilities with the costs of nursing facility care and other medical and long-term care expenses.

In Florida, the Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) is responsible for Medicaid.  The Agency successfully completed the implementation of the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) program in 2014.  Under the SMMC program, most Medicaid recipients are enrolled in a health plan.  Nationally accredited health plans were selected through a competitive procurement for participation in the program.

Florida Medicaid Coverage has been extended until the end of the public health emergency.  This means no Medicaid recipient will lose Medicaid eligibility during the public health emergency*.
*Exceptions include individuals who voluntarily request termination, those who have passed away, or those who are no longer considered residents of Florida.

The Division of Medicaid’s website is designed to align with our functional organizational structure.
