A bit of history on Coventry in Florida: Coventry is a national health insurance company that in 2007 made its entrance into the Florida Health Insurance market by purchasing Vista Health Plan, a local South Florida HMO. With that purchase, Coventry was immediately taken seriously by us as brokers due to the strength of Vista’s reputation and network. Having handled many of the county plans for both Medicaid, Healthy Kids, the Broward School Board, etc. Vista had already cemented its reputation with the Florida government and general population.
Still, Coventry was relatively unknown inside of Florida due to the fact that they never sold a plan in the state before. When East Coast Health Insurance found out about the sale we were leery that perhaps Vista might lose some of its benefits or have some other problems brought on by a national carrier using its balance to burn a profitable company. Well, much to our surprise Coventry has probably some of the best plans in the United States dollar for dollar and with their exceedingly rich benefits. Though their PPO plan does not have affordable health premiums in South Florida, once you get to West Palm Beach and head north, the rates are fantastic. In West Palm Beach Coventry usually ranks in the top two for price and benefits and many times number one when compared to our other health insurance companies.
Coventry was purchased by Aetna in 2012, and in 2013 all Coventry members will be insured by Aetna.
Several years ago, Vista HMO for individuals and families disappeared under the wing of its parent company, taking the name Coventry One. Florida residents are now offered both individual PPO and HMO plans through the same insurer, and for an exceptional value at that. Coventry has also been making some big moves in recent months, as its highly sought-after coverage was acquired by Aetna, and the companies will merge in 2013. As Coventry as a whole also provides Medicaid and Medicare coverage and was consistently experiencing positive growth on the stock exchange, Aetna decided to purchase the company. Soon, you will be able to look for CoventryOne quality (and hopefully pricing) through the Aetna trademark.
