Managed Care Notice

Information for patient families covered by Sunshine Health Medicaid Managed Care (MMA) or Healthy Kids plans

Update as of Jan. 29, 2018
Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH) has reached an agreement with Sunshine Health that restores in-network status for:  

  • Inpatient care provided at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital
  • Inpatient services provided by a Johns Hopkins All Children’s physician at an affiliate hospital
  • Outpatient visits with JHACH subspecialty physicians
  • Rehab and outpatient services at all Johns Hopkins All Children’s locations
  • Pregnant patients currently receiving prenatal care, regardless of the trimester when care began

Network coverage for the above services will be retroactive to January 2, 2018 so that there will be no break in coverage for your care.

For children and teens receiving primary (general) pediatric care from the Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s in St. Petersburg or with Dr. Patricia Blanco and Dr. Vicki Skidmore at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care/Sarasota:

Unfortunately, Sunshine did not restore in-network status for these services. You can call the office where you receive care for information on how to contact the Agency for Healthcare Administration to request a change in your child’s health plan, or call us at the phone number shown above.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these past two months and we continue to advocate for children and families to have access to our services.
