- Enrollment can be done from your home’s comfort and safety, over the phone or online.
- To start coverage on January 1, 2021, you must complete the application process by December 15, 2020.
- The Open Enrollment period to secure your health insurance for 2021 runs from November 1 to December 15, 2020. You must enroll within this window so you can change or add coverage as needed in 2021.
Take Care of Yourself and Your Family with Health Insurance
On your own, navigating health insurance options can be overwhelming and costly, especially as more providers are now offering coverage in Florida than in previous years. Freeway Insurance understands this and will help make the entire process as straight forward as possible.
If you can’t afford health insurance, there are options available to make sure you and your family are covered—and avoid the penalties that can come from not being insured.
You can also give us a call at 877-706-7597 to talk to an expert insurance agent who can answer your questions and help you find the health insurance plan that fits your needs and budget.

Individual and family health insurance policies provide health coverage to specific persons and/or their families. These plans are available for people who do not have health insurance provided by their employer or other organizations. While many people tend to get health insurance through their work, the Health Marketplace provides individual and family plans to ensure that anyone who wants health insurance can get affordable coverage.

A Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan is a health insurance policy that has a preferred network of healthcare providers, but will provide coverage if you decide to get health services outside of their network. While PPO health insurance plans tend to have higher priced premiums, they offer the insured more freedom of choice in where to receive treatment. Learn More
A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan is a health insurance policy that offers coverage to health services within a network that agrees to charge lower rates for their care and treatment. While HMO plans won’t cover health services received from doctors, hospitals, etc. outside of their network, they tend to have lower premium rates than other health plans. Learn More
