Your Florida Blue health coverage is so important. That’s why we want to remind you that this year, the time to for individuals and families to review their health plan for 2018 is shorter than last year. If you buy your own health coverage, you only have until December 15 to decide if you’d like to keep your plan or shop for a different one. We’re here to explain your options and make it simple. Finding the best plan for you in 2018 should be easy!

As a Florida Blue member, you should have received your 2018 health plan packet in the mail. By now you likely have reviewed the plan information and decided to keep that plan for 2018 or chose a different plan. Now all you have do to activate your plan for 2018 is make your January premium payment by January 1. 

But if you’re not sure which plan is right for you, call us right away. Our health plan experts can help you compare your current plan benefits to other options that may be a better fit for you and your budget. Simply call us at 1-855-819-3215, visit one of our Florida Blue Centers or contact your local health insurance agent.

Premium tax credits that lower your health plan premium are still available in 2018.
If you’re eligible for a premium tax credit in 2018 and have not reviewed your 2018 plan yet, you can do so by logging into your Florida Blue member account or the Florida Blue mobile app payment center and using the Premium and Benefit comparison tool. Please note: If you chose a different plan from the one sent in your 2018 health plan packet, you won’t see the comparison tool in your member account.
