Health Insurance Plans Accepted at Sarasota Memorial Locations
Below is information on the Medicare/Medicaid, private and other health insurance plans accepted at Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Sarasota Campus, Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Venice Campus, and our network of outpatient and urgent care centers. This list is subject to change at any time.
Because health insurance coverage can differ from plan to plan, even under the same insurer, we highly recommend contacting your insurance company’s member services for information specific to your plan’s coverage and to confirm your plan’s in-network providers and facilities.
Except in emergency situations, using an out-of- network facility can result in a patient being responsible for a larger portion of a hospital bill.
You have the right to seek emergency services and care anywhere they are provided, regardless of insurance.
In a medical emergency, patients may seek emergency care at any of our 3 ER locations — SMH-Sarasota, SMH-Venice or our freestanding North Port ER — regardless of insurance coverage or status.
Through the Florida Medicaid Redetermination Plan, more than a million Floridians will lose Medicaid coverage in 2023. This follows Congress’ decision to end a pandemic-era requirement that states not remove recipients from the rolls for the duration of the public health emergency.
It is important to monitor your postal mail for an envelope with a yellow stripe announcing new coverage information. Floridians losing their health benefits are encouraged to apply for new low-cost health insurance using a federal navigator covering Florida who can help them understand the requirements and options available. The special enrollment period runs until October 31, 2023.
