MediPass History


In March 1989, the state of Florida requested federal approval to develop the Medicaid Provider Access System (MediPass). The state received waiver approval from the Health Care Financing Administration in January 1990. The MediPass program was developed and administered by the Florida Medicaid program. Since October 1991, MediPass has enrolled thousands of Medicaid members across the state. MediPass was originally implemented as a pilot project, but by 1996 the program was expanded statewide. The state is required to submit a renewal application every two years to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in order to continue the MediPass program.

Today, MediPass serves more than 600,000 members with a network of approximately 5,000 MediPass providers. The MediPass Program has contracted with disease management organizations to provide disease management services to MediPass members living with certain diseases. The disease management program serves thousands of MediPass members with chronic illnesses.
