Florida Legislature Passes Medicaid Reform | Sunshine State News

Florida's Medicaid program will likely undergo fundamental and historic changes in the coming years, as the state Legislature passed a comprehensive reform package Friday, the last day of the legislative session.


The bill shifts Medicaid recipients from the government-centered program that provides health care to low-income families by paying providers for services, and into managed-care companies that are contractually obligated to provide services and meet cost-reduction goals.


The bill is largely based on a five-year-old pilot program in Broward County and four other North Florida counties, but the statewide move to managed-care companies is unprecedented among the other states.
