Qualifications for CMS Services



Financial Eligibility
Title XIX Medicaid - Financial eligibility is based on the most current year's Federal Poverty Level Guidelines for your family size
Title XXI KidCare - Financial eligibility is based on the most current year's Federal Poverty Level Guidelines for your family size (upper limit is 200% of the federal poverty level)
There is not a separate full pay coverage option for the CMS Network. Depending on the child’s age, children with special health care needs whose family income is above 200 percent of the federal poverty level may enroll in full pay MediKids or Healthy Kids through the Florida KidCare program
CMS Network Safety Net - Children whose families are over-income for TXIX or TXXI, may be eligible for limited services, subject to the availability of funds, if the cost of their child's care spends the family down to the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines for their family size

Clinical Eligibility
Your child's clinical eligibility is determined using a clinical screening tool that is administered by Children's Medical Services nurses.
