For more than 30 years, the Florida Health Care Coalition (FLHCC) has helped employers in Florida improve the quality of health care and moderate health care cost increases.  FLHCC serves to amplify the voice of employers in health care issues and leverages the strength of its members to effect change in the health care marketplace.  

For Employers
Be Informed. Learn about industry best practices, trends and innovations at our conferences, events and networking sessions. Stay informed on the latest health policy developments in Florida and Washington, DC through our forums, newsletters and alerts.  Call on our experienced staff for help in understanding and navigating the health care marketplace.

Reduce Administrative Costs. Obtain actionable intelligence about health plans, care, policy developments and industry trends without having to pay consulting fees or purchase additional products.

Improve Quality and Reduce the Cost of Employee Health Care. Use information from The Leapfrog Initiative and our other quality/data analysis initiatives during rate negotiations and benefits selection, and make the most of your company’s health care dollar. Work with more than 25 large employers across Florida to influence plans and providers and drive value in the state's health care delivery system.

Be Heard. Attend our forums and meetings with other employers, providers and policymakers, and have a voice in the local and national dialogue on health care.
