Two insurers - Cigna and Preferred Medical Plan – aren’t offering plans on the Florida health care exchange in 2016, forcing more than 100,000 Floridians to shop for new coverage.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says he’s the only Republican running for president who’s actually notched a win against President Barack Obama’s health care law, widely loathed on the political right.

Nov 5, 2015

After nearly two years in operation and millions of dollars spent in development, the small business health insurance exchange created by the Affordable Care Act is struggling to catch on.

November 1 marked the start of open enrollment to sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.  Residents of Florida, along with three dozen other states can shop for plans online at healthcare.gov through the end of January.  Florida residents led in enrollment last year with about 1.6 million sign ups.  ACA navigators are already working to reach more people this year and get them signed up for coverage.


Open enrollment on HealthCare.gov started Sunday, and federal health officials expect the third year of open enrollment to be more challenging than in previous years.
