Florida’s Medicaid Redetermination

The federal government announced a Public Health Emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic on
January 31, 2020. To get additional funding from the federal government, Florida was required to allow members to stay on Medicaid during the Public Health Emergency even though their household situation may have changed. This continuous coverage will end on March 31, 2023.

What will happen when the continuous coverage ends?

Over the next 12 months, all Medicaid members will be reviewed to “redetermine” if they are still eligible for Medicaid. Members will be contacted about their “redetermination” date and next steps. Some members may no longer be enrolled in Medicaid.

  • Some members may be automatically reviewed and approved to continue enrollment. They will be notified that they have been approved and their Medicaid coverage will continue.
  • If a member’s coverage can not be automatically renewed because more information is needed, they will be sent a notice 45 days before their renewal date with instructions on how to complete the renewal process.

If you are a Medicaid member, here are some things that you should and should not do to help with redetermination:


  • Be sure your address is correct with Department of Children and Families (DCF) by signing into your MyACCESS account or through the DCF Virtual Assistant
  • Provide a text number on your MyACCESS account so you can get reminders about when your redetermination is due
  • Check your redetermination date after February 28, 2023
  • Watch for a yellow-stripe envelope telling you when your renewal is due
  • Return any requested information as soon as possible
  • Learn about and apply for other coverage options if you are no longer eligible for Medicaid
  • Consider Florida Healthy Kids for your children, if needed.

  • DO NOT panic. DCF will reach out to you when it’s your time to renew. Until then, make sure your contact information is up to date.
  • DO NOT ignore a redetermination notice
  • DO NOT file a new application before your redetermination date
  • DO NOT wait on the Call Center line for things you can easily and quickly by signing into your MyACCESS account or through the DCF Virtual Assistant
  • DO NOT forget to include all household members on your application
