MIAMI, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Physicians Healthcare Management Group, Inc. (Phyhealth) (Pink Sheets: PHYH), a developer of health maintenance organizations (HMOs) in partnership with physicians, today announced that all applications for the launch of its pilot HMO in the state of Florida have been filed and accepted for review by the three regulatory agencies requiring them. Applications were accepted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the federal level and the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) and the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) on the state level.

Acceptance of the documentation sets into motion a review process, which will include site visits by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Once the review is completed and all requirements are met, the state of Florida can proceed with issuing the Certificate of Authority for Phyhealth Plan Corporation to operate the HMO and, in turn, CMS will issue its certification for operation of Phyhealth's Medicare Advantage Plan. The certification will authorize Phyhealth Plan to begin enrolling Medicare beneficiaries for the 2009 open enrollment period beginning November 15, 2008. The review should be completed prior to the end of the second quarter.
