HCMA Health Insurance Co-Op:
The plan, created by physicians for physicians, is fully insured by Florida Blue and has operated since 1981. The fully insured, not for profit, co-op provides affordable health insurance to physicians, their employees, and their families. The plan realizes significant savings through a trust where any surplus offsets future rate increases.
Members receive free legal advice through the Healthcare Attorney On-Call Program. You will receive a return call by noon of the next business day from a Florida healthcare attorney and receive up to fifteen minutes of free legal advice.
Through our grassroots efforts, the powerful collective voice of the HCMA allows members to have significant influence in the legislative arena.

In addition, twenty HCMA Delegates serve as your voice, representing members at the FMA Annual Meeting where resolutions are developed, and policies are formed.
