BCBSF is offering two valuable Cover Florida products; a non-catastrophic and catastrophic plan, both with a broad range of coverage for members. The non-catastrophic plan provides coverage for basic and preventive care, including physician office visits, dental care, pharmacy, and lab work. The catastrophic plan offers the same services with the addition of hospital coverage. Average costs for the plans are approximately $50 and $150 per month respectively, and vary by region.

"The need for affordable health coverage in our state is critical, and we appreciate the opportunity to offer the uninsured a real solution," said John Kaegi, group vice president of Marketing. "Our company's mission is to help meet the health care needs of all Floridians, and the Cover Florida plans complement our existing suite of low-cost products, including the recently launched GoBlue and FamilyBlue options."

Six insurance providers will make affordable health coverage and access to care available to the 3.8 million uninsured Floridians. BCBSF and United Healthcare were selected to provide statewide options, and four South Florida-based insurance companies were selected to offer additional regional coverage; Florida Health Care Plans, a subsidiary of BCBSF, will be available in Flagler and Volusia counties; Medical Health Plan of Florida and Total Health Choice will be available in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. In addition, JMH Health Plan will also serve Miami-Dade County. Further Cover Florida information is available at http://www.coverfloridahealthcare.com.
