The Florida Blue Insurance Guide for iPad users has gone multilingual: a free Spanish language version is now available.
The interactive app is designed to be used in one-on-one settings primarily with individuals under 65. Because thousands of Floridians will seek information about health care coverage options – many of whom have little or no experience with or knowledge of health insurance – content is focused on the basics of health care reform and the impacts of the new mandate. By answering a few simple questions, the app can estimate the federal subsidy amount, if any, your clients may qualify for – valuable information for conversations with your clients about their needs and budget.
If you already have the latest version of the app, the Spanish version is an additional capability and does not require the download of a new app, simply an update. If not, the app is available through the Apple App Store. Use this valuable tool to help educate Spanish-speaking individual under 65 clients about health care reform, its impacts and their health plan options.
