Medical Insurance

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:
