Florida Health Insurance Advisory Board

The Florida Health Insurance Advisory Board (FHIAB) was established by the Florida Legislature in 1992 as the Small Employer Health Reinsurance Program.  Its purpose was to promote the availability of health care coverage to small employers.  At that time, Board members were primarily representatives of health insurers licensed under chapter 624 or 641 of the Florida Statutes.  In 2005, the Legislature expanded the composition of the Board to include representatives of employers, an individual policyholder and a representative from the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA).  The Board's responsibilities also were expanded to include an advisory role on health insurance issues to the Office of Insurance Regulation, AHCA, the Department of Financial Services, other executive departments and to the Legislature.  The current legislation governing this Board is found in Florida Statute 627.6699(11).  This Board is chaired by Commissioner Kevin McCarty.
