JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Florida Blue announced today that individual members may extend through 2014 their existing policies that were scheduled to be discontinued due to non-compliance with the Affordable Care Act and Floridians will continue to have a choice to select new coverage plans.

Florida Blue sent a statement to Action News:

"Florida Blue has been an advocate for our members and we complied with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, which called for the inclusion of essential health benefits in all individual plans. We notified impacted members and offered them the option of comparable and compliant plans giving them access to a wide variety of choices to meet their individual health care needs. Additionally, we offered a number of choices for members to learn about the new options-in-person, online or by phone," said Pat Geraghty, chairman and CEO of Florida Blue.

Affected members will receive new letters from Florida Blue.
