As many of you are aware, all eyes are on the tropics and Hurricane Irma approaching our state. Florida Health Care Plans is carefully monitoring the situation, and at this time, all FHCP facilities and pharmacies are expected to remain open with regular business hours this time to serve our Members.

At 6 p.m., Monday, September 4, 2017, Governor Rick Scott declared the State of Emergency for every Florida county. As an HMO licensed by the State of Florida, and a Medicare Advantage Organization, FHCP will waive prescription refill rules and medical prior authorization/Out of Network rules during the declared State of Emergency. To this end, FHCP members can fill their medications earlier than our usual wait period, and FHCP will pay for non-participating provider services if you need them.

As further updates regarding the status of Hurricane Irma are received, FHCP will issue additional information related to any operational changes for our pharmacies, clinics, and HMO operations.

Thank you and stay safe.
