Crist also plans to make it a lot easier for new state-of-the-art health care facilities to be built in the state.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) February 29, 2008
"Florida can expect changes in its insurance benefits thanks to Gov. Charlie Crist." He has a plan for the 4 million residents without health-care coverage; that according to Florida health insurance web, a free insurance consultant service. Morgan Moran, finance and insurance professional in Jacksonville reports "Crists' insurance comes with "robust" benefits for as little as $150 a month."
Florida has insurance problems, mostly due to overpriced policies, and dwindling benefits. "The Governor's goal is fix that problem and to cover every Floridian," The governor said "There may be challenges (ahead), but our goal is to aim high." Crist would like to make some major changes to benefits offered in the state, including allowing young adults to continue on parent's policies. Moran said, "Crist believes young adults should be able to stay on their parents' health insurance until age 30." Such a provision could actually help lower health premiums because it would spread the insurance risk and add enrollees.
The Crist plan for heath care, according to Moran includes lowering the overall cost of healthcare", by working with the prescription drug industry. "Everyone knows the cost of prescription drugs is out of control", and this is one area of concern that Crist plans to attack. "Crist says he will "work with Congress to make it safe and secure for residents to import drugs from Canada" the insurance consultant said.
"Crist plan for Florida is to increase health care options." "Residents need to have access to more than just emergency care" said Moran, to go along with this, "Crist also plans to make it a lot easier for new state-of-the-art health care facilities to be built in the state."
The governors: 'Cover Florida Health Access Act plan' should, according to Crist, end skyrocketing health costs, limited coverage. Unlike the plans offered by the democratic presidential candidates, Crists' plan would not require that employers offer health insurance, or that people buy the coverage. Instead, the state would negotiate with private insurers to develop health plans that would be free of state-mandated benefits, but "would include a 'robust package of preventive, primary and urgent care benefits, including hospitalization', Moran said.
"This new health insurance plan, offered by Crist, would have to guarantee coverage to anyone aged 19 to 64 who can pay for it." "The governor said, 'he already has several insurers willing to bid on his program.'"
