Florida has a high uninsured rate. More than 3.8-million Floridians lack health insurance, reported the St. Petersburg Times today. However, it is important for the people in Florida to be covered with basic health insurance, just like anywhere else. As well as this, it is a time when health care regulation is undergoing major changes, so it’s better be safe and insured.

Selecting Health Insurance in 5 Steps

Actually, obtaining health insurance in Florida is easy, as it is anywhere else.

1. Your first step is to select a registered, licensed health insurance policy broker through whom to obtain your Florida health insurance quotes. Check with the Florida Office of Insurance ( for registered, licensed health insurance brokers and other pertinent health insurance resources.

2. Your insurance broker will help you obtain health insurance quotes from insurance companies that operate in the state of Florida. As health insurance regulations, coverage and conditions vary by state, it is important to make sure that the health insurance quote you’re getting is explicitly applicable to Florida.


3. Look for the package that covers your health insurance needs. Check for the base conditions covered to ensure that the health insurance plan will cover what you potentially need. Beyond this, look particularly for coverage for areas of insurance that are non-mandated in the state of Florida.

4. When selecting your health insurance plan, opt for the package that offers the best value, rather than the lowest cost. Often it is in the extras and details where one fl health insurance quote will differ from another. At times, just for a little extra premium cost, your health insurance company can add additional coverage to your health plan.

5. Discuss your spouse’s health plan and/or your company’s group plan which already offer (partial) coverage with your insurance broker to minimize your additional insurance premium of any new health insurance to be taken out.
