Low Income Pool (LIP) Program

SFY 2022-23 LIP Model

NOTE: This is the model that is currently on consultation

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has granted authority to increase the Low Income Pool (LIP) allotment from $1,508,385,773 to $2,167,718,341 for SFY 2022-23 through SFY 2026-27.  Therefore, the Agency can increase the total LIP payment amount if additional Intergovernmental Transfers (IGTs) are available. If any provider can contribute IGTs or increase their IGT amount, the Agency requests that you contact the Agency via the SupplementalPayments@ahca.myflorida.com inbox as soon as possible due to the statutory requirement for all LOAs to be received by the Agency by October 1st, 2022 (Section 409.908, F.S.)
