Date:12/10/2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In an unprecedented effort to address the health care needs of Florida's large Hispanic community, BCBSF has developed numerous tools, services, and programs now available in Spanish, including a new state-of-the-art Spanish-language Web site.

"As Florida's growing population continues to change, we are also committed to expanding cultural competencies system-wide to understand and address the varied perspectives and health needs of all communities."

Besides affordability, one of the reasons often cited by Hispanics for not having health insurance is a poor understanding of how it works.
