Insurance Consumer Advocate’s Forum:
Finding a Balanced Approach to Unexpected Medical Expenses

Florida’s Insurance Consumer Advocate, Sha’Ron James, invites the public and industry stakeholders to participate in a forum focused on informing consumer decisions in healthcare.  The high cost of healthcare continues to be an issue for Florida’s families and the financial impact of one medical event can be a devastating blow to a family’s financial future. Currently, there are several proposals before the Legislature and other policy options that have been discussed that take consumers out of the billing equation and empowers the consumer with the information they need to make informed medical decisions.

The forum will take place October 15th from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Tallahassee at the Florida Capitol, Lower Level, Cabinet Room.  For those who wish to participate outside of Tallahassee, the forum will be live streamed via the Florida Channel at www.thefloridachannel.org.
