Florida picks firms for the uninsured

Miami Herald, October 17, 2008

UnitedHealthcare and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida were among six insurers the state picked to provide health insurance for nearly 4 million Floridians now without coverage. The insurance products will be offered to residents who have been without insurance for at least six months and will become available for purchase in early 2009. The Cover Florida program will be open to uninsured people ages 19 to 64 and is aimed at preventive and basic care.
