Health First and Florida Hospital Healthcare System Partner to Offer Health Insurance Products
Date:8/27/2013

Rockledge, FL (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Health First and Florida Hospital Healthcare System (FHHS), Florida Hospital’s administrator for employee health insurance, are embarking on a new partnership to provide health insurance offerings across 11 counties from Tampa to Orlando and Daytona Beach and throughout Central Florida. A contract is still being finalized but both organizations are excited about joining forces to develop a variety of trusted health insurance products with access to world class medical professionals.

“Health First is excited about teaming up with Florida Hospital to offer additional health insurance options to Central Florida residents,” said Steve Johnson, Health First president & CEO. “This partnership is part of our overall strategy and vision to keep healthcare local, robust and sustainable—and to provide an integrated delivery network to our community and beyond.”

As announced earlier this year, the FHHS and Health First team agreed to pilot its first product in Volusia and Flagler Counties. Florida Hospital Care Advantage, administered by Health First, will roll out in January 2014 with the five Florida Hospitals in Volusia and Flagler Counties providing infrastructure, as well as quality clinical and physician support for the plan. Health First Health Plans brings more than 15 years of experience, a 4.5 Star Medicare Advantage Rating and more than 60,000 members to the partnership and will manage the operational responsibilities of the plan.

“The business structure of healthcare is evolving,” said Mike Schultz, president and CEO of the Adventist Health System Florida Region. “With more Medicare and Medicaid payment reductions expected in the future, partnerships with quality companies like Health First allows us to strengthen our healthcare system and provide more local insurance options for the community.”

As the FHHS and Health First Health Plans partnership matures, future insurance products could be created for residents of the Metro Orlando and Tampa areas.
