Welcome to the website for the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. Our mission is "Better Health Care for All Floridians." As champions of that mission, we are responsible for the administration of the Florida Medicaid program, licensure and regulation of Florida’s health facilities and for providing information to Floridians about the quality of care they receive.

Every day, we look for ways to improve health care in Florida. We’ve built strong partnerships with other agencies and continue to develop relationships with stakeholders at all levels in communities around the state. The Agency for Health Care Administration would not be able to effectively carry out its mission without your help. Thank you for your partnership and for the opportunity to serve you.

The Agency places the utmost importance on the safe and secure handling of all protected health information. For more information, please review our Notice of Privacy Practices.
