Florida Medicaid wants to encourage you to make healthy choices and participate in activities that will help keep you from getting sick. Beneficiaries in Florida Medicaid Reform plans will be eligible for enhanced benefits if they take part in specific activities. The goal is to reward your healthy behavior.
You will receive information on the activities that will earn enhanced benefits for you. When you complete one of the activities, credits will be deposited into an account for you. You will be able to access the credits in that account to pay for over the counter health-related supplies that are not already covered by Florida Medicaid, such as vitamins.
