Health care reform has changed the way health care works. Most people are now required to have health insurance as part of the ACA’s mandate. There is an annual open enrollment at which time you purchase a health plan. You may be able to get insurance outside the open enrollment period if you have a qualifying event such as having a baby, getting married, or moving to a new country. Florida Blue can help you compare, buy, and enroll in a plan that not only fits your budget but also fits your needs.

Florida Blue is an Insurance company that prides itself on helping people and communities get better health care. They aspire to be a “leading innovator enabling healthy communities.” Florida Blue offers you and your family access to benefits that go beyond your doctor’s visit. They provide you with complete health coverage, from wellness check-ups to member discounts and offer cost comparison tools.

If you are a member of Florida Blue, you will have access to answers anytime and anywhere. You can connect online, over the phone, or in person at any Florida Blue Center. They offer many free programs to help you get the most out of your health care plan as well as services to help you make better-informed health care decisions. By utilizing the many services available you will prevent health problems and improve the quality of your life.

Your health plan protects you from the unexpected illness or accident. Time spent in the hospital can rack up costs that will put you in debt without medical coverage. With Florid Blue you pay a monthly bill, a premium, for your health plan and then the insurance company pays part of the cost for your covered medical expenses.  Because your insurance company offers a list of hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers, you are able to choose a provider within the network and this results in less out of pocket expenses.
