CMS Network Eligibility
Children's Medical Services (CMS) Network provides health insurance coverage for children with special needs who have no insurance or who are under insured for their condition. CMS Network eligibility is based on the child's age, clinical condition, and the family's income.
The CMS Network is one of four Florida KidCare Program options. Families who meet the eligibility requirements for Title XIX Medicaid or Title XXI KidCare and whose child has a special health care need qualify for the CMS Network health benefits package.
Early Steps, Florida's early intervention system for infants and toddlers, has different financial eligibility requirements; these requirements can be found in the Early Steps area of this website.
If your child has a medical, behavioral, or developmental condition that you think might qualify him or her for Children's Medical Services, you should apply now by completing a Florida KidCare application. Florida KidCare applications are available on-line or from your local CMS Area Office.
