Health Insurance in Florida

The coverage offered by Health insurance varies significantly, ranging from basic medical coverage to major medical coverage. Basic coverage typically includes coverage for hospital stays, a portion of room and board, and medical expenses associated with treatment. The policy usually pays a fixed amount to healthcare providers based on a “usual, customary and  reasonable” (UCR) standard.

Major medical coverage may be offered under a managed care system or a traditional system. In a managed care system, services are typically provided by in-network providers, with the managed care network controlling healthcare services and costs. Some managed care arrangements include Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO), Exclusive Provider Organizations (EPO), Preferred Provider Organizations(PPO), and Point-of-Service Plans.

Life Insurance in Florida

Life insurance is a type of insurance that provides a death benefit to the beneficiaries of the insured person. This benefit can be used to pay off debts, expenses, and provide income replacement for the survivors after the insured’s death. 

There are two ways for identified property and funds to be returned to Florida consumers. Firstly, the life insurance company can return the property directly through improved internal search processes imposed as part of regulatory settlement agreements. Secondly, the insurance company remits the property to the state’s Department of Financial Services’ Bureau of Unclaimed Property if they are unable to locate a beneficiary. Families can then search the Bureau’s website to see if there is unclaimed property available to collect for their loved ones. The website is accessible here.

Home Insurance in Florida

Homeowners’ insurance is a type of property insurance that provides coverage for damage or loss caused by perils such as theft, fire, and storm damage. Additionally, it may offer coverage for accidental injury or death for which the homeowner may be legally responsible. Mortgage lenders often require homeowners’ insurance as part of the mortgage agreement.

According to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation,  the standard homeowners’ insurance policy consists of several components, including Coverage A for the structure (the dwelling itself), Coverage B for other structures such as sheds and fences, Coverage C for personal property like the contents of the structures, Coverage D for loss of use or Additional Living Expense (ALE), Coverage L for personal liability, and Coverage M for medical payments to others.

Auto Insurance in Florida

Auto insurance provides coverage for motorized land vehicles, such as cars, trucks, vans, and motorcycles. It includes protection against loss or damage to the vehicle itself, as well as liability for injury, damage, or expenses resulting from the ownership, maintenance, or use of the vehicle. The insurance also covers medical, hospital, and surgical benefits for injured persons, as well as funeral and death benefits for survivors, regardless of legal liability, if the coverage is part of a liability insurance contract.

There are different types of auto insurance for private passenger vehicles, which are not used as a rental or livery service. These include Private Passenger Auto No-Fault (Personal Injury Protection or PIP), Private Passenger Auto Liability (Liability of the insured for Bodily Injury or Property Damage inflicted and other coverages not involving damage to the vehicle itself), and Private Passenger Auto Physical Damage (Comprehensive, Collision, and miscellaneous other coverages involving damage to the vehicle itself).
