The safety of our members and the community is our top priority as we face COVID-19 together. Lighthouse Health Plan is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Health and the Agency for Healthcare Administration. We are closely monitoring updates from these organizations. We have included information on our website to help explain COVID-19 and ways you can protect yourself and your family. Community resources by county are also provided to assist you with needs you may be facing. We will get through these challenges together. ~Christie Spencer, CEO

Getting Care During COVID-19
No Medicaid recipient will lose Medicaid eligibility during the state of emergency. The Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) has mailed letters to members who would have lost eligibility, informing them that their benefits are still active. If you did not receive your letter, please find a copy of the letter here.
Beginning with applications received in February 2020, the Agency is extending the timeframe for individuals to submit any necessary paperwork to 120 days from the date the application was received. For more information, read the AHCA alert here.
During the COVID-19 period, Lighthouse members may:
- Get early refills of maintenance medications (excludes controlled substances).
- Use mail order for maintenance medications without limits.
- Request a 90-day supply of medications when the pharmacy has that amount.
- Request a 90-day supply of medications by mail order.
