Health insurance is expensive, but the cost of medical treatment without health insurance is even more expensive.
For this reason, there is Florida legislation in place to help ensure that everyone who is employed has access to health insurance coverage, no matter what their pre-existing conditions, past health insurance claims, or current health issues might be.
Specifically, the Florida Health Care Access Act is the current law governing this process. It comes with a number of essential requirements that must be followed by the business and by the employee.
What Is Required in the Florida Health Care Access Act?
Small businesses are allowed to provide group health insurance to employees. While this right to health insurance is protected under Florida law, it comes with a laundry list of requirements that may not be simple to follow.
For example, the Florida Health Care Access Act requires that any employee signing up for insurance provide a full and accurate disclosure statement. If this statement is found to be lacking in any information that the insuring party requires to make decisions regarding the details of the health insurance policy, the insured may not be able to get the coverage they want for the medical care they need.
