As an eligible Miami-Dade County employee, you may enroll yourself and eligible dependents for coverage in one of the three medical plans. The plans consist of one Point of Service and two HMO options.
A Point of Service (POS) plan allows you to receive services from an in-network or out-of-network provider of your choice. If you choose an out-of-network physician, your healthcare services will be subject to the plan deductible and co-insurance provisions.
A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) provides a wide range of healthcare services to you on a prepaid basis. Under this plan, you receive medical services at no cost or for moderate co-payments without deductibles or claim forms.
The available medical plans are:
- AvMed Point of Service (POS)
AvMed encourages but does not require the selection of a primary care physician (PCP). No referrals are required to receive covered medical services from participating specialists.
- AvMed High Option HMO
AvMed encourages but does not require the selection of a primary care physician. No referrals are required to receive covered medical services from participating specialists.
- AvMed Low Option HMO
Employees are required to select a PCP for each person enrolled. Referrals from the PCP are required to receive covered medical services from participating specialists.

Members of the DCFF fire union may be eligible for coverage in their Union-sponsored plan. Contact your Union office for further details. If you enroll in the Fire Union-sponsored health plan, you may elect the Optix vision plan, but you cannot participate in of any County-sponsored dental plans.
