What is the difference between Florida medipass and medicaid HMO?

I had a surgery date scheduled for June 15th but it got canceled because my Florida medicaid which was just straight medicaid got switched to an HMO medicaid that doesn't cover the surgery so I had to get it switched to medipass because it covers the surgery but that doesn't take affect until July 1st so... show more I had a surgery date scheduled for June 15th but it got canceled because my Florida medicaid which was just straight medicaid got switched to an HMO medicaid that doesn't cover the surgery so I had to get it switched to medipass because it covers the surgery but that doesn't take affect until July 1st so I'm just wondering what the difference is and if something is going to go wrong last minute again
