How to enroll

Medicaid

  • When you are eligible for Medicaid, you need to choose a health plan. The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) determines who is eligible for Medicaid. There is also a separate company to help people enroll with a Medicaid plan. They have counselors who can:
    • Help you and your family enroll in a health plan
    • Answer questions about your choice of health plans.
    • Help you if you decide to change health plans.
  • Please visit www.flmedicaidmanagedcare.com or call 1-877-711-3662 (TTY/TDD 1-866-467-4970) to speak with a Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Choice Counselor.
