Miami Children's Health Plan

Florida's Family Health Plan

Miami Children’s Health Plan now offers access to healthcare for the “whole family.”

Provider Alert


On August 28 2019, Governor Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in preparation for Hurricane Dorian. As such, Miami Children’s Health Plan (MCHP) would like to offer important information to our providers.

Provider Assistance

Providers needing assistance should call MCHP’s toll-free number at (844) 243-5187 to reach a Customer Service representative.

For Behavioral Health related issues, please contact Beacon Health Options at (888) 710-2313.

For non-emergency transportation needs, please contact One Call Transportation at (877) 340-9491.

Claims Payment and Authorizations

Providers are reminded to continue to provide critical and medically necessary services to all MCHP members. In those instances where a provider and/or enrollee could not comply with pre-authorization policy requirements because of storm-related impact, MCHP will not deny medically necessary services solely on the basis of not obtaining a prior authorization for participating or non-participating providers.

Submitting Claims

In the event the provider office loses immediate or extended internet connectivity following the storm and is not able to submit claims electronically, provider can submit paper claims directly to MCHP to the address below.

Providers without a Florida Medicaid identification number who rendered services before, during, or after the storm.

All medically necessary services provided under a state of emergency are covered regardless of provider network participation status and/or service.

MCHP requires that non-participating providers follow appropriate credentialing procedures. If a provider is not registered with Florida Medicaid, the provider must cooperate with MCHP to complete the Agency’s provisional (temporary) enrollment application and obtain a Medicaid Identification Number. The process for provisional provider enrollment is located at
