Fort Lauderdale Broward Health Insurance Gets A Facelift

Deerfield Beach, FL (PressExposure) August 19, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Broward health insurance has been woken from its five year slumber with a bang. Three new (or old depending on your perspective) health insurance companies introduced themselves and their new Florida Health Insurance plans this year. The others rolled out new products and pricing aimed at helping Broward residents afford health insurance. Broward county's largest individual and family health insurance broker was even alarmed for the consumer in this county as they didn't know which plan anymore would be the most affordable Broward health insurance plan much less the most comprehensive. After taking a roll call of the eight major Florida health insurance companies, Courtland Twyman a managing partner at Broward County's own East Coast Health Insurance was still concerned for the Broward health insurance consumer.

"Usually, in the past we were able to know right away basically without the aid of quoting software what company would offer the most health insurance for the least, in addition we all had our favorites, mine was the Blue Cross 90 (now 590) series or the Vista individual plans as they both have so many benefits without a deductible. The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida plan was always the most popular with my clients for both its price and benefits. This year, however we received new health insurance plans from Avmed another non-profit company, as well as Cigna and Coventry."

Right now Mr. Twyman leans towards the Avmed and Blue Cross plans in Broward depending on the consumer as they usually offer the most health insurance coverage for the least money as they are both non-profit. But we found in researching the article that Cigna is also in many cases the price leader! Additionally the Vista plans are extremely competitive as always while the other Florida health insurance companies such as United, Coventry, and Aetna are still competitive in many demographics and may turn out to be the right option for many Broward-Fort Lauderdale residents.

Mr. Twyman recommends calling at 888 803 5917 before making a decision as many people may have additional underwriting concerns as well.
