What is Ped-I-Care?

Ped-I-Care is a program. It is for children with special health care needs. Their families qualify by income. It was developed to meet all the members’ needs. It has plenty of doctors to choose from. We are focused on each member having a medical home. We work to offer well-coordinated, high-quality care.

How do I enroll in Ped-I-Care?
Members are enrolled through Florida KidCare. They are approved by Children’s Medical Services Managed Care Plan (CMS Plan).

If my child is assigned to Ped-I-Care is he/she still enrolled in CMS Plan?
Yes. Ped-I-Care is under contract to CMS Plan.

Can I use this insurance outside the state of Florida?
n an emergency, we will cover out-of-state emergency room visits. Occasionally, we may cover an out-of-state provider if it’s medically necessary.

Does this insurance cover emergency visits?
Yes. Ped-I-Care covers all emergency room visits.

Do all services require referral/authorization?
No. Only some services require this. Please see your member handbook for a list.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
