Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida to offer employees only one health plan

Its agents will continue to offer businesses and individuals dozens of options in health maintenance organizations, preferred provider organizations, and other possibilities, but in 2010, the 5,000 employees of the state's largest health insurer will be required to go into a high-deductible product linked to health savings accounts.
