Offering what its creators believe could be a model for affordable health insurance nationwide, a unique public-private partnership announced Tuesday a plan aimed at helping the estimated 600,000 uninsured in Miami-Dade County.Called Miami-Dade Blue, the county worked with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida to develop a plan that would cost a healthy 35-year-old male about $100 a month.  ''This is going to be not only cutting edge but truly a national model,'' said Janet Perkins of the Office of Countywide Healthcare Planning. ``This is not the sole solution to everyone's needs, but we have done our damnedest to make this work.''

 

 

Miami Health Insurance Just Got Better

 

The new Miami Dade Blue Cross Blue Shield plan is by the most affordable Miami Health Insurance available right now and has been our most successful product.  If I didn't know better, I would actually think that we Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida as that is all we sell all day.  And we are indeed proud to be offering the most successful health insurance plan that has ever been introduced in Miami.  When I say successful, I mean that is offering comprehensive Florida health insurance to the entire Miami Dade population.  This has not happened in nearly 10 years.  Miami Health Insurance rates are among the highest in the country due to fraud and excessive tort and otherwise expensive administration due to tort. 

 

The Miami Dade Blue plan is to set the record straight, a plan with a deductible of only $250!  If I were to offer you another Miami health insurance plan right now with a $250 deductible you would be paying at least $400, and that would assume you are a 40 year male.  If you are female or older a typical Miami health insurance plan will run closer to $500 for a $250 deductible. 

 

The next great feature is the coinsurance.  The coinsurance on this plan is not a hidden ticking time bomb.  It is really the most simple, elegant Florida health insurance plan ever developed by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, it has an out of pocket maximum of only $2000 per year.  Combined with the coinsurance that means you would only be responsible for a maximum of $2250 per year should you happen to fall sick.   This example is for in-network charges.  The out of network fees on this Miami-Dade health insurance plan would include a $750 deductible, (which is less than the best plan offered by Aetna, Avmed, Cigna, Humana, United, or Coventry) and an out of pocket of $5000 per year.  Though remember, this scenario only occurs if you to do a provider or hospital not in the Miami Dade Blue network. 

 

The Miami Dade Blue Network

Of course the network is growing quickly, and it is important for you not only to support this plan so that it remains a viable option, but that you tell people about it, so that it might be come to Broward and Palm Beach county where they desperately need a health insurance plan like this one.  Support Miami Dade Blue and Support Commissioner Joe Martinez who literally crow barred this plan into existence.

Currently the plan has 1500 in network physicians and is adding doctors daily.  The out of network plan entitles you to go to any doctor that accepts a Florida health insurance plan.  What about out of the Florida health insurance network?  Well you can go to just about any doctor in the country, as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida literally has the best network in the country.  The best period.

How Does It Work?

The new Miami Blue Cross Blue Shield plan has a smaller network, much like an HMO with doctors that want to help you and have accepted a lower fee schedule in order to help Miami-Dade county start insuring residents again.  As long as you stay inside the network you will only have $250 deductible.  However, if you have to go to a physician or hospital outside of the network the annual deductible is only $750!  So it is still significantly more comprehensive and affordable than the same plan from any other company, and the best part, is that you have access to the best health insurance network in the country from Blue Cross Blue Shield.
