Insurers get into the healthcare-store trade

Share this:


The Miami Herald reports that insurers such as Florida Blue are jumping into the  healthcare-store business — with a South Florida spin.

”In September, the insurer will debut three ‘integrated care’ facilities designed to cater to South and Central American populations by offering primary care, specialty services, labs and diagnostics under one roof — a model that is common in Latin America.

‘The move reflects a consumer-focused style of administering care that has grown in popularity since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Now, more consumers are insured than ever before — 1.6 million Floridians enrolled in the marketplace in 2015 alone — many also leaving their employer’s coverage to shop for individual plans on the exchange.”

”Consumers want more transparency and affordability, with the option to price compare and get speedy service.”
