Full report in PDF format


  • Community Health Purchasing Alliances (CHPAs), as currently implemented under Florida's managed competition model, have had a small impact in reducing the number of uninsured Floridians.
  • To further improve access to affordable health care coverage, the Legislature should
  • amend state law to allow CHPAs to negotiate with competing health plans;
  • reduce the Agency for Health Care Administration's oversight and coordination role among CHPAs;
  • allow CHPAs to appoint their own agents; and
  • require the Agency for Health Care Administration to make consumer guides available to CHPA members by December 1999.
