Many women and infants are eligible for Medicaid – a government program to provide health care to low income individuals and families.
Applications to apply for Medicaid can be submitted on the Florida Department of Children and Families website. If you are determined to be eligible for Medicaid services, you will be assigned a health plan who will manage your care. Should you be unable to locate a prenatal and/or pediatric provider who accepts the health plan you have been assigned, you should contact Florida Choice Counseling at 877-711-3662 or the Florida Medicaid Managed Care website for assistance. The links and brochures below may provide additional information about your assigned plan or help you in choosing a different plan. If you are having trouble navigating the system or obtaining Medicaid prenatal care and would like assistance, please call our partners at the Healthy Start program of the Monroe County Health Department. You may reach the Program Coordinator at 305-676-3841.
