Miami is a unique city: home to the world’s largest collection of Art Deco architecture, graffiti by internationally recognized artists, over 150 cultural backgrounds and more than 60 spoken languages, and 15 miles of beaches. It is also the only major city in the United States that was planned by a woman, Julia Tuttle, the “Mother of Miami”.
Though an urban setting, Miami houses more than 800 parks, including Everglades National Park. This allows for a high concentration of recreational activity, such as tennis, golf, water sports, and even man-made mountain bike trails. (So, if you live in the Miami area, there are plenty of fun ways to stay healthy!)

For a better understanding of what health insurance options are available in the Miami area, a sample quote has been created for a sample client who is a 26 year old, female non-smoker who lives in Downtown Miami, 33010. This client is in good health and utilizes the opportunities to be active in Miami, and they also do not want to spend very much when they commit to a health insurance plan.
Since the client does not expect to need many medical services throughout the year, and has no known conditions, takes no medications, she is looking for a plan that is simple and inexpensive with a low deductible. She has heard good things about HMO plans, that they are convenient and save money, but there are also PPO, POS, and HSA plans available.
