Uninsured can get health plans as state's Cover Florida program opens

The state Agency for Health Care Administration could not post phone numbers and Web sites of insurers selling the new policies, leaving consumers to hunt for the information or delay signing up. In a state where one in five adults are uninsured, the third-highest rate in the nation, hundreds of people called the state agency and the insurers about the low-cost, "Cover Florida" coverage.
