​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Medicaid Redetermination Period – April 2023 through February 2024​​

​ Are you at risk of losing your health care coverage due to recent changes by the federal government in Medicaid eligibility? Broward County and local health and human service agencies collaborated on this website to provide links to important information from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) regarding Medicaid eligibility redeterminations, as well as alternative health care providers, if you are at risk of losing your Medicaid coverage.

Medicaid is a federally funded program that provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults, and people with disabilities.

During the COVID-19 public health emergency, the federal government provided additional funding to states to allow them to maintain continuous Medicaid coverage for individuals, regardless of their financial eligibility. Recently, the federal government announced that this continuous coverage period ends beginning April 1, 2023.

The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) determines eligibility for Medicaid. DCF will be reviewing all recipients in the coming weeks to redetermine their eligibility. Some current recipients are at risk of losing their benefits. Visit the comprehensive DCF website​ to learn more – for faster answers, you can even chat with the website Virtual Assistant. ​



Make sure your current address is on file with DCF.

An incorrect address, or multiple addresses on file with DCF can impact your Medicaid redetermination. Visit the DCF "MyAccess Portal" to update your contact information, obtain information about or submit documentation for your Medicaid Redetermination. Please provide a phone number capable of receiving text messages so DCF can remind you when your redetermination is due. Learn More…

If DCF determines that you are not eligible for Medicaid and you think the determination is wrong, you have a right to appeal and should do so within 10 days of the date on the denial letter. You can initiate an appeal by making a request to the state's Office of Inspector General.  While your appeal is in process, you have the choice to retain your Medicaid coverage.
