TAMPA, Fla. –Insurance providers are gathering in Tampa on June 28-29th to get a first-look at Florida’s Insurance Marketplace, a “one-stop” web portal that allows users to compare multiple insurance products side-by-side, enroll in the one that best meets their needs, and access important health information.

The mini-conference, hosted by the Florida Health Choices Corporation, will allow vendors, insurance agents and others to experience the Insurance Marketplace and decide whether to make their services and plans available to Florida small businesses with four to 50 employees.

Phase one of the Insurance Marketplace is scheduled to launch this October, giving small business owners a central web portal where they can shop from a variety of health insurance products, including dental care.  Phase two rolls out in 2013, expanding the program to eligible individuals and increasing the number, and types of plans and services offered.

The Florida Health Choices Corporation was created by the Legislature to increase access to affordable, quality health care by creating a competitive market for purchasing insurance and services. For more information, visit www.fhc.changem.com.
