TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- More than three years after lawmakers approved the controversial plan, Florida's new medicaid managed care system will take effect today in the final regions of the state.

The Agency for Health Care Administration has gradually phased in the system, which requires almost all medicaid beneficiaries to enroll in HMOs or another type of managed care known as provider-service networks.
