The West Volusia Hospital Authority (WVHA) is a special taxing district established by the State of Florida to provide access to health care for the qualified indigent residents of the taxing district. The enabling legislation and description of the Tax District’s geographic boundaries are available to view or download below. It is funded by ad valorem (property) taxes, and uses its funding to provide access to health care.

How We Work

The West Volusia Hospital Authority (WVHA) Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) shall be composed of ten (10) members appointed by the Board, who will serve at the pleasure of the Board. The Board may expand, reduce or abolish the Committee or replace any member without stating a cause. Each Board member shall nominate two (2) prospective members for the Citizens Advisory Committee for the Board’s consideration. Members of the Committee shall serve during the term of office of the Board member who nominated them. There shall be no limit to the number of terms a person may serve on the Committee.

Every Committee member is expected to attend each meeting of the Committee and be a positive and effective contributor to the deliberations of the Committee. Only duly appointed members of the Committee shall vote on the business of the Committee. No proxies or substitutes shall be allowed. After three (3) consecutive unexcused absences, a member’s position shall be declared vacant. The chairperson of the Committee shall have the authority to determine whether a member’s absence is excused. The Chairperson of the Board shall be asked to make appointments to fill any vacant positions.

The WVHA does not directly own or manage any hospital or clinic. It provides funding to hospitals and contracted agencies to support health care for eligible low-income residents of the taxing district.

Hospitals and Clinics

The WVHA contracts with the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to obtain matching funds for its grants to some funded agencies.

The WVHA embarked on opening dedicated primary care clinics for the WVHA HealthCard (HC) members. On October 1, 2020, the WVHA miCare DeLand Clinic opened their doors for business. It is located at 844 W Plymouth Avenue, DeLand, Florida. The WVHA miCare Deltona Clinic opened their doors for business in December of 2020. It is located at 840 Deltona Blvd., Unit M, Deltona, Florida. The phone number for both clinics is (866) 326-7548.

Additionally, the WVHA fulfills the obligation to reimburse Health Care Responsibility Act (HCRA) claims for residents of West Volusia. Because the WVHA focuses solely on health care issues, it is well-positioned to make sure HCRA claims are filed accurately, paid promptly, and handled efficiently to keep administrative costs to a minimum.
