Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women is a Medicaid eligibility subprogram that may allow an uninsured pregnant woman to receive immediate pregnancy-related outpatient services while her eligibility for Florida Medicaid is being determined.

If you are pregnant, apply for PEPW before applying for Medicaid. This will enable you to enter prenatal care immediately and receive temporary Medicaid (PEPW) until your Medicaid enrollment has been completed.

For more information, please call 772-462-3800.
