Insurance Updates

(Note: Meyer Pediatrics is NOT accepting new Medicaid Patients at this time,  as our panels are full.)
HMO or MMA Medicaid plans:
Molina Healthcare (formerly Integral Health)
Staywell Health Plan
CMS Title 19.

We accept the following Florida Healthy Kids Plans:
Aetna Better Health of Florida
Staywell (Wellcare) Healthy Kids
Sunshine Healthy Kids (no medicaid)
CMS Title 21 Healthy Kids.

Please note,  we  will continue to accept plans where your eligibility is obtained through the Florida Healthy Kids. This does NOT affect established patients who currently have Medicaid or should find they become eligible for Medicaid services in the future.   We apologize in advance for any inconvenience and encourage you to check  the website  after October 1, 2017 for updates or changes to this policy.

Please note that no HMO is “better” than another, it is simply a matter of assignment.  Further, it is important that you  contact your HMO and request that Meyer Pediatrics/Ted L. Meyer be assigned as your PCP or primary care provider. Be sure to check that your insurance card has our office name on it.   You can make this request yourself on some of the HMO web pages once you have registered for an account.  

Please note that Meyer Pediatrics does not provide immunizations/vaccinations other than the flu shot to patients insured by Medicaid or any Medicaid HMO.  Those patients will be referred to their local health department for vaccinations.
