MEDICAID SPECIALTY PLAN
Florida has implemented managed care for all recipients enrolled in the Medicaid system. A specialty plan was developed specifically to meet the acute needs of children involved in the child welfare system.
CBCIH, in partnership with Sunshine Health, has developed a care coordination model which provides behavioral health care staff, nurses, administrative professionals and technical specialists who operate the plan with Sunshine Health throughout Florida.
Behavioral Health Care Coordination
Behavioral health care coordination is done in partnership with Sunshine Health and their team of clinical staff. Each CBC lead agency employs or contracts for behavioral health care specialists who coordinate services for children in the child welfare system.
Nurse Care Coordination
Health care coordination is done in partnership with Sunshine Health and their team of medical professionals. Each CBC lead agency employs or contracts for nursing professionals who coordinate services for children in the child welfare system.
CBCIH employs a statewide director who manages four regional coordinators across Florida. Each regional coordinator is assigned to the CBC lead agencies in their area and provides guidance and expertise for care coordination.
Technology & Data
CBCIH provides the statewide technology and data systems that allow for the coordination of care under the plan. Custom applications designed within a single platform are available to care coordinators and case managers throughout Florida.
