Does your child have a Medicaid or CHIP health plan?
Don’t risk a gap in your child’s Medicaid or CHIP coverage!
Since the beginning of the Public Health Emergency (PHE), as a requirement to receive additional funding from the federal government, Florida has provided continuous Medicaid coverage and has not disenrolled ineligible recipients.
THIS SPECIAL PROVISION WILL END ON MARCH 31, 2023!
Over the next 12 months, the Florida Department of Children and Families will be working to notify current Medicaid recipients regarding their future eligibility in the program.
GET READY TO RENEW NOW!

Other Important Notes
- If you no longer qualify for Medicaid or CHIP, you may be able to get health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace®. Marketplace plans are:
- 4 out of 5 enrollees can find plans that cost less than $10 a month.
- All plans cover things like prescription drugs, doctor visits, urgent care, hospital visits, and more.
- Losing Medicaid or CHIP coverage is a Qualifying Life Event (QLE), which allows you to enroll in a Marketplace plan outside of the Open Enrollment Period.
- Visit HealthCare.gov or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325) to get details about Marketplace coverage.
- If your child no longer qualifies for Medicaid, you may be able to get them health coverage through your state’s Children Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
