Information for Share of Cost / Cobra / Deductibles

Medically Needy ( Share of Cost ) is a program offered by Florida Medicaid for eligible individuals. Patients with Medically Needy benefits are required to meet a monthly “Share of Cost” amount, similar to the deductible on most commercial plans; you may be asked to show proof of having met the Share of Cost amounts for your visit. If we are unable to confirm that your Share of Cost has been met you will be considered a Self-Pay patient for that visit. Please refer to the Self-Pay Financial Requirements section for monetary amounts. 

COBRA  is a program that requires continuation of coverage to be offered to covered employees, their spouses, former spouses, and dependent children when group health coverage would otherwise be lost due to certain specific events. Group health coverage for COBRA participants is often more expensive than the amount that active employees are required to pay, since the employer usually pays part of the cost of employees' coverage and all of that cost can be charged to individuals receiving continuation coverage. Patients covered under COBRA may be asked to show proof of premium payment.

Patients with commercial insurance plans or Medicare Advantage plans with Medicaid as a secondary will be asked to pay their copayment/deductible/coinsurance at the time of service.  We do not bill Medicaid when it is secondary to these plans.
