Florida to detail plan for 4 million uninsured adults
On September 8, Floridians will get details about the "Cover Florida program"—a state plan designed to improve access to healthcare for about 4 million uninsured adults in the state. Nine companies submitted proposals in August for the program, and the state will choose a statewide provider from among Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, Celtic Insurance, JMH Health, Medica Health, Total Health Choice, American Management Advisors, United Health Care, Florida Health Care, and Universal Healthcare. Under the terms of Cover Florida, insurers would offer low-cost coverage to Floridians between ages 19 and 64 who had been uninsured for at least six months. Unemployed Floridians are expected to be able to access the plan sooner.
