Medicaid Pilots at One Year: How Is the New Medicaid Marketplace Faring?

This issue brief provides an update on Florida’s Medicaid reform program that began enrollment in two pilot counties, Broward and Duval, in September 2006. In September 2007, changes were made to the program allowing health plans operating in the two counties to submit new benefit offerings. This issue brief reports on these changes, among other things showing that HMO’s benefit offerings have become less generous.
