What Does Florida Medicaid Cover

Great Low-Cost Medical Care

There are many things that Florida Medicaid covers, and it’s important to understand your coverage so you can get the help you need.

Florida Medicaid is a health insurance program that provides low-cost medical care to people who meet certain requirements. If you’re eligible for Florida Medicaid, you may be able to get medical services like doctor visits and hospital stays covered by the state of Florida. Here’s what Florida Medicaid can cover:

Doctor visits: You can go see a doctor if you have a medical condition that requires regular check-ups or ongoing treatment. This can include specialists like dermatologists or cardiologists.

Hospital stays: If you need to stay in the hospital overnight for any reason—even if it’s just because you’ve had surgery—the state can cover those costs.

Prescription drugs: If you have a prescription drug plan through your employer (or Medicare), then this coverage won’t apply since those plans are separate from Medicaid. However, if there are no other options available to help pay for prescriptions then you may qualify for Medicaid assistance with these costs as well!

Medcaid Misconceptions

Unfortunately, there are some misconceptions about the program. Many people think that Medicaid is only for low-income individuals who can’t afford health insurance. That’s not true at all! In reality, Medicaid covers a lot more than just people who have no other options available to them.
