Don't lose your
benefits

You must renew your benefits — Medicaid program or Florida Healthy Kids (FHK) coverage — every year. And always make sure to keep your info up to date. This allows you to keep your benefits and services. Watch for a Medicaid or FHK renewal notice in the mail. You’ll get it about the same time of year as when you first applied for benefits.
