What services are covered under Florida Medicaid?
Florida must ensure that Medicaid recipients receive the health care services required by federal guidelines. These mandatory services include physician visits, family planning, laboratory tests, x-rays, and health screening services for individuals under age 21. In addition to the mandatory services, Florida covers a number of optional services, such as dental care for children, prescription drugs, and hospice care. Currently, Florida’s Medicaid program covers over 35 mandatory and optional health care services.
