The Florida Health Insurance Marketplace is a marketplace where Floridians can browse, compare, and purchase health insurance. This article discusses what the marketplace has been up to and what’s next for it.
What has the Florida Health Insurance Marketplace been up to?
The Florida Health Insurance Marketplace has been working to make the enrollment process easier for people in Florida. The Marketplace has introduced a new way of conducting the eligibility process online, and it’s better for applicants to see their tax data and other information without having to travel to an office.
As of October 9, 2016, the Florida Health Insurance Marketplace has achieved more than 800,000 people enrolling in qualified health plans. This is a record number for nearly any time period in the history of the Marketplace. They have also met or surpassed most of their goals for this year.
What’s next for the Florida Health Insurance Marketplace?
The Florida Health Insurance Marketplace has been through a lot since it was created. It’s not just a website, it’s also a job for the approximately 3,000 people who work at the marketplace. These are people from all over the state and country who wanted to create a new health care option in Florida and make healthcare more affordable. Now that this is done, there’s no telling what will happen next with the Florida insurance market.
The Florida Legislature, in a move intended to slash costs, killed off the state’s health insurance marketplace this month, which has been in operation since 2013. But there are some who believe that the dismantling of the state’s online health insurance exchange could cause severe problems for Floridians seeking coverage.
