Clarification on Medicaid Changes

An article published Feb. 3, Prestige Wins Medicaid Contracts, overstated the case in describing the shift of Florida Medicaid from fee-for-service payments to statewide managed care. While the vast majority of Medicaid patients are required to enroll in a managed-care plan or provider network, there are exceptions. These include some children and adults with disabilities. For more information, see this state website.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
