What to Know About MEDICAID IN 2023
Four things Florida wants you to know about your Medicaid Redetermination
- The Department of Children and Families (Department) will be sending out notices regarding any actions needed
regarding your Medicaid coverage. Be sure to update your contact information through your MyACCESS account.
- If you are still eligible and the Department is able to review your coverage based on information on file,
they will. If this is the case, you will receive an approval letter when your Medicaid coverage has been renewed.
- If the Department is not able to renew your coverage automatically, they will send you a notice to reapply, and you
will need to take action. If you do not respond after 30 days, you may be determined ineligible.
- If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, there are other health services!
