    Welcome to Sunshine Health! Sunshine Health gives you quality healthcare that is convenient and easy to get. Our main goal is making sure you get high-quality healthcare.

    This is your provider directory. The next few pages have information on how to use the directory.

    Let us know if you need help understanding this. Interpreter services are provided free of charge to you. This includes sign language. We also have a telephone language line to help with translations. You can call Member Services. The number is 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955-8770).

    You can get a current list of Sunshine Health network doctors by calling Member Services at 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955-8770) or using our online Find a Provider Tool or looking at our online Provider Directories on SunshineHealth.com. You can also ask Member Services to mail a copy to you.


    Getting benefits from Sunshine Health is easy. We believe the best way for you to keep good health is to have a good relationship with your family doctor. That is why you pick your own Primary Care Physician (PCP). When you need care, all you have to do is call your PCP for an appointment. Tell them you are covered by Sunshine Health. It’s that simple.


    Each eligible family member is asked to choose a PCP from our list. Your PCP has the job of taking care of you and sending you to other doctors when you need them. You can have the entire family see one PCP or each family member may pick a different PCP.

    Family members can choose from:

    • Pediatricians (they only see children) • General/Family Practice (they see everyone in your family) • Internal Medicine (they usually see adults) • A provider working in a clinic (RHC/FQHC)

    If you need help or don’t see your doctor on this list, call Member Services at 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955-8770).




    Women may pick any OB/GYN doctor from the Sunshine Health Provider Network. This doctor will take care of female healthcare needs without a referral from your doctor. An OB/GYN can help you with pregnancy care, yearly check-ups and any female problems you may have. Call Member Services if you need help. The number is 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955- 8770).


    Sunshine Health members can get family planning services without a referral from their doctor. You can get your services directly from your doctor. You can also go to any family planning clinic that takes your Medicaid form. Call Member Services if you need help choosing a family planning provider. The number is 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955-8770).


    If you use a wheelchair, walker or other aids and need help getting into your doctor’s office, call your doctor’s office. Call before you get there. This way someone will be ready to help you when you get there. If you would like help talking with your doctor about your special needs, call Member Services at 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955-8770).


    We want you and your family to make appointments for regular check-ups to help you get well and stay well. Benefits with Sunshine Health include:

    • Screenings • Diagnostic x-rays • Lab Tests • Mammograms • Eye Exams


    If you need to go to the hospital, your PCP or a specialist will admit you to a hospital where he/she is affiliated. The hospitals you would go to are listed in this directory.


    Your PCP MUST coordinate referrals to Specialists, Hospitals, and Ancillary Providers.


    If you have a serious illness or injury that needs immediate attention, call your PCP. They know your medical history best. With Sunshine Health, you have access to medical services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    In case of a possible life threatening emergency, call 911, or go to the nearest emergency room. If you are put in the hospital, please call or have someone else call Sunshine Health within 48 hours, to let us know of your medical situation.

    Obtener beneficios de Sunshine Health es fácil. Creemos que la mejor manera de mantener una buena salud es tener una buena relación con su médico de cabecera. Es por ello que usted escoge a su propio Médico de Atención Primaria (PCP, por sus siglas en inglés). Cuando necesita atención, todo lo que tiene que hacer es llamar a su PCP para pedir una cita. Dígales que tiene cobertura de Sunshine Health. Es así de simple.


    Cada miembro de la familia elegible debe escoger un PCP de nuestra lista. Su PCP tiene la tarea de cuidar de usted y derivarlo a otros profesionales cuando sea necesario. Puede hacer que toda su familia se atienda con un mismo PCP o que cada miembro de la familia elija un PCP diferente.

    Los miembros de la familia pueden elegir entre:

    • Pediatras (sólo atienden a niños) • Medicina General/Familiar (atienden a todos los miembros de la familia) • Medicina Interna (por lo general atienden a adultos) • Un proveedor que trabaja en una clínica (RHC/FQHC)

    Si necesita ayuda o no ve a su médico en esta lista, llame a Servicios para Médicos al 1-866-796-0530 (TDD/TTY 1-800-955-8770).
