Gov. Ron DeSantis Announces New Affordable Health Plans for State Retirees

                   August 20th, 2019

Gov. Ron DeSantis announced today that new health plan options will be available to more than 30,000 Medicare-eligible retirees participating in the State Group Health Insurance Program starting in 2020.

The new choices -- Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug (MA-PD) plans -- will combine the benefits of Medicare and prescription drug coverage into a single plan and offer other valuable benefits such as vision, hearing, dental, and wellness benefits.

 “Florida is finding innovative healthcare options to improve the quality of health care services for state retirees while also saving taxpayers money,” said DeSantis. “These new health plans will provide more flexibility while creating the potential to save more than $80 million for taxpayers.”
