As an eligible Miami-Dade County employee, you may enroll yourself and eligible dependents for coverage in one of the offered medical plans. A Point of Service (POS) plan allows you to receive services from an in-network or out-of-network provider of your choice. If you choose an out-of-network physician, your healthcare services will be subject to the plan deductible and co-insurance provisions.
A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) provides a wide range of healthcare services to you on a prepaid basis. Under this plan, you receive medical services at no cost or for moderate co-payments without deductibles or claim forms.
