South Florida seniors' coverage may be cut

Miami Herald, November 13, 2009

Both House and Senate healthcare reform proposals are seeking to slash funds to the HMOs that have attracted 283,000 South Florida seniors because of rich benefit packages that can include free dental care and many other perks, the Miami Herald reports. Reformers want to cut healthcare costs to make insurance more affordable for the uninsured, causing many to look at South Florida—where healthcare is far more expensive than other areas, according to this article from the Herald.
