Does the cost of health insurance not fit into your current budget? Have you lost your job and with that lost your health insurance? Have you been denied health insurance because of preexisting conditions? Although all would seem to create nothing more than a big headache and you may think the only thing you can do is give up, there are options available for yes, get this, health insurance that is affordable.
The Cover Florida Health Care Access Program makes affordable health care available to the 3.8 million uninsured Floridians. Tax dollars were not used to create these programs, but rather six private insurance companies have partnered with the state of Florida to offer affordable alternatives. These programs offer different options, but may include coverage of preventative services, screenings, office visits, office surgery, urgent care, prescriptions, medical equipment and diabetic supplies.
The programs are available to all applicants from 19-64 who have been without health insurance for at least 6 months and who are not eligible for a public health insurance program like Medicare or Medicaid. In addition, you are also eligible if you lost your coverage due to a loss of job that provided an employer-sponsored health benefit plan, death of or divorce from a spouse who was provided health benefits through his/her employer, or exhaustion of your COBRA coverage.
Rates start at $23.70 and go up from there. Definitely worth checking out. For more information, visit Cover Florida Health Care online.
