Health Insurance Plans

The State of Florida offers comprehensive health coverage to meet the needs of you and your family through a variety of health plans. Each plan is focused on helping you stay healthy through preventive care benefits and wellness programs, as well as providing access to healthcare services when you need them. Each option covers most of the same types of health services, but provides those services and shares costs with you in a different way.

Below are key highlights of the different types of plans. Click on each plan name to learn more. If you or your eligible dependent is Medicare eligible, be sure you understand what you need to do. Also, see different prescription drug costs on high deductible and standard plans. This may be a factor in your choosing a health plan. Find out if you are eligible for these benefits.
