The meetings will kick off in Tallahassee and will take place in a number of cities, including Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa, with the final meeting taking place in Ft. Myers.During the 2011 legislative session, lawmakers passed a major overhaul of the existing Medicaid program. AHCA is directed to submit any waiver it may need for the new Medicaid program to the federal government by August 1. Before the state submits a waiver it is required to hold the meetings and obtain public input. FHCA members can access a schedule of upcoming meeting dates and locations here.
