TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida Health Choices (FHC) launched its third exchange when it began to offer health plans to Florida Realtors®. The state’s largest trade association’s 140,000 members now have the benefit of their very own Private Association Exchange (AEX). With the addition of the AEX, the Health Insurance Marketplace offers more types of plans, including group health insurance.
“Many real estate professionals work independently and have a need for individual and family health insurance. Florida Health Choices is thrilled to offer this valuable service as a Florida Realtors® Rewards Partner,” said FHC’s Board Chairman, Durell Peaden.
“By expanding our offerings to include small and large group health insurance, we know we can satisfy the health insurance needs of real estate associates, brokers and appraiser members of the association,” Peaden continued.
A special enrollment period is currently underway for Realtors that experience a qualify life event like marriage, divorce, or birth of a child. Realtor members who are also employers are invited to shop for coverage year-round. For all others, the next open enrollment period for individual and family coverage begins November 1, 2015.
