CMS Health Plan, operated by Sunshine Health, provides managed care services to members. Sunshine Health is a licensed Florida health plan.

Eligibility

The CMS Health Plan is for children who:

  • Are under age 21 and eligible for Medicaid or
  • Have special healthcare needs that require extensive preventive and ongoing care

The need for preventive and ongoing care could mean working with several different providers at once. It might also mean working with state agencies or finding local community resources. It can be tough to keep track of it all. We understand. We’re here to help. The plan’s goal is to provide healthcare that helps improve the lives of members and families.

Getting Started

It is important that we learn about your child so we can make sure they get the care that they need. Your child’s care manager will set up a time to come to your home to meet your child.
