Florida Health Insurance Affordability Exchange


Modeled after the Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0 (HIP 2.0), this bill is an alternative to traditional Medicaid expansion. 

The bill creates a state-operated marketplace for low-income Floridians to access health care coverage, services and products.  Under the proposed legislation, enrollment will begin July 1, 2015 and will utilize a phased transition to ensure continuity of care.

The FHIX program would extend coverage to an estimated 800,000 low-income Floridians. The expanded population will include individuals earning less than 138% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), who are not currently eligible under section 409.902, Florida Statutes.
