TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (Office) today unveiled an expanded CHOICES system to give consumers one centralized location to search all four of the Office’s insurance rate comparison systems. This includes rates for Homeowners, Automotive, Medicare Supplement and Small Group health insurance. The CHOICES system gives Floridians the ability to search different types of insurance products for the best value and coverage using a comparison of rates available for all Florida counties.

“The CHOICES system is a helpful tool for any Florida consumer considering the purchase of these types of insurance,” stated Florida’s Insurance Commissioner, Kevin McCarty. “A quick search to locate sample rates can save valuable time and money. I encourage all Floridians to take advantage of the information available in CHOICES”.
 
To search automotive or homeowners insurance, consumers can select from one of three risk scenarios for sample average rate information in the Florida county of their choice. The Medicare Supplement and small group health insurance systems provide consumers with the ability to customize selections and receive individual rate information. 
 
The CHOICES search system is located on the Office’s website at: http://www.floir.com/choices.aspx
 
Rates provided in the four CHOICES search systems are for illustrative purposes only, and reflect the most recent rate filings accepted by the Office. The listing of an insurance company in any of the CHOICES search systems does not constitute an endorsement by the Office.  The rates do not reflect all possible surcharges or discounts, and the Office encourages consumers to contact their insurance agent, or the company directly to obtain an official premium quote.
