So, to all my fellow laboratory professionals, I wish you all a “Happy Medical Laboratory Week”.

Medipass will no longer be available in our area starting May 1, 2014. Letters from Florida Medicaid are in the process of being sent out to you (or you may have received one already). The letters from Florida Medicaid will ask you to select a Medicaid managed care plan. If you do not select a plan, Medicaid will assign you to one.
If you would like to continue to receive care from your SIMED doctor, you must select Prestige.
As soon as you receive your letter from Florida Medicaid, please call the Medicaid Help line at 877-711-3662 and follow the prompts:
- Select your language (for example, English is #1)
- Listen to the message
- Press #1 to speak with someone to change your plan
- Press #1 again, to speak with someone
- A person (Medicaid Choice Counselor) will come on the line to help you enroll in a Florida Medicaid managed care plan.
Prestige is the only Medicaid HMO plan that SIMED doctors accept.
If you want to know more about Prestige and the benefits they provide, please call them at (888) 611-0786.
Call your SIMED doctor’s office if you have questions about our participation in Florida Medicaid health plans or if we may be of further assistance to you.
