Florida Medicaid

The Medicaid Provider Access System (MediPass) is a primary care case management program for Medicaid recipients developed and administered by Florida Medicaid. MediPass was established in 1991 to assure adequate access to coordinated primary care while decreasing the inappropriate utilization of medical services. In MediPass, each participating Medicaid recipient selects or is assigned a health care provider who furnishes primary care services, 24-hour access to care and referral and authorization for specialty services and hospital care. The primary care provider is expected to monitor appropriateness of health care provided to their patients. Some analysts believe that the main benefit of disease management is not so much cost savings but the improvement of care by providers and administrators, which in turn has lasting effects on health outcomes.
