Florida Medicaid Fee Schedule 7.3% Increase Effective Oct. 1

FAHCS alerted members just before Thanksgiving & thanks to our hardworking team led by Laura Williard (AAHomecare) & Tom Griffin (FAHCS Lobbyist) - without your hard work and leadership, would not have been possible!  

AAHomecare officially reported today that Florida AHCA released their updated DME Medicaid fee schedule based on state budget legislation that provided the first broad-scope DME reimbursement increase in 23 years. The increase works out to 7.3%, based on funds allocated by legislators to the Florida budget.

Providers will have to resubmit claims from 10/1/2023 to get the earlier claims reprocessed at the higher rate.  Funds were also provided to the MCO plans to provide rate increases to DME providers. If a provider’s fee schedule is not based on the updated Florida Medicaid FFS fee schedule or it is not at 100% of the fee schedule rates, contact the MCO plan to negotiate their contracts to ensure receiving the full 7.3% increase.  

As we shared when first announced in May, the historic increase follows a persistent four-year advocacy effort by AAHomecare’s Payer Relations team and FAHCS. While the rate change was originally described as a 7.5% increase by Florida officials, the 7.3% number reflects the dollars ultimately allotted by the legislature.
