For the First Time at Town Hall Event
On Wednesday, July 1st Commissioner Dorrin Rolle and BCBSF will host a health forum about Miami-Dade BLUE, the new comprehensive, low cost insurance product for Miami-Dade County. Commissioner Rolle, BCBSFs Market President Penny Shaffer, and licensed insurance experts will be on hand from 5pm-9pm at William H. Turner Technical Arts High School, 10151 NW 19th Ave, Miami, Fl, to answer county residents’ questions about the Miami-Dade BLUE plan and other personalized health insurance options available to the community.
Interested Miami-Dade County residents can enroll in the Miami-Dade BLUE insurance program for the first time at this town hall event.
Miami-Dade BLUE, which is the result of a collaboration between Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, the Board of Miami-Dade County Commission, the Office of Countywide Health Planning and the Miami-Dade County Mayor's Office, targets the 600,000 residents countywide under the age of 65 who are unable to afford private health insurance and do not qualify for public programs. The individual plans are medically underwritten, based on age and gender and have costs ranging from $70 to $300 per month; small group plans are guaranteed issue. Miami-Dade BLUE plans provide a comprehensive range of services including office visits, surgery, hospitalization, outpatient surgery, pharmacy and dental coverage, as well as access to more than 1,500 physicians and seven hospitals across all areas of the county.
