TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Following the smooth launch of Florida’s Health Insurance Marketplace, Florida Health Choices today announced the start of a media campaign featuring two radio advertisements to air in three of Florida’s major media markets. The ads, titled ‘New Year’s Resolution’ and ‘Young Adults’, will begin to air Monday, Jan. 12, with the goal of informing uninsured Floridians they can enroll in coverage through Florida Health Choices’ online marketplace by clicking www.MyFloridaChoices.org. The new website went live on Monday, Jan. 5.

“Florida Health Choices now offers comprehensive health insurance for individuals and families. Now that the marketplace has been up and running with zero glitches or downtimes, we are intensifying our public outreach in an effort to help uninsured residents gain access to affordable coverage,” said Florida Health Choices CEO Rose Naff. “The tremendous collaboration, thoughtful planning, training and testing among our staff and partners have ensured our customers are having a positive experience when they visit the website or contact the call center.”

“The important thing to remember is that Floridians may face penalties at tax time if they do not have health insurance coverage,” stated FHC Chair Durell Peaden. “This is a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution that is conveniently available for people to take advantage of flexible options and products.”

To complement the radio spots, Florida Health Choices is promoting the Health Insurance Marketplace online, via Facebook and on digital billboards until open enrollment ends Sunday, Feb. 15.
