Terms Governing Use:
Biographical/Historical:     The Department of Insurance was created in 1969 (Ch. 69-106, Laws) to assume the duties of the Insurance Commissioner's Office. The department was headed by the Insurance Commissioner and Treasurer and regulated all forms of insurance including rates and policy forms. It determined if companies were financially sound; tested and licensed all agents, solicitors, adjusters, and bail bondsmen; and enforced the Insurance Code, the State Fire Marshal Law, the Firemen's and Police Officers' Retirement Fund, and the Liquified Petroleum Gas Law.  In addition, the Department sponsored legislation for consumer protection and coordinated the state's property and casualty loss prevention self-insurance programs.  On January 7, 2003, the department was combined with the Department of Banking and Finance into a new Department of Financial Services under a Chief Financial Officer, a post which combined the former offices of Treasurer and Comptroller.

    A consortium of agencies was created to collaborate on a home health care program for the thousands of Holocaust survivors in Florida, including the Jewish Family Service Agencies of Florida, Humana Incorporated, the Florida Insurance Commissioner's office, and the Claims Conference (Material Claims Conference against Nazi Germany). The proposed program would provide access to home health care services to all Holocaust survivors with a primary residence in Florida, with no restrictions based on financial status, health condition, age, or any other form of insurance selection criteria.  Home health care services would be available upon determined need by a health care practitioner without any elimination or waiting period.

Summary:     This series consists of records documenting the development and implementation of a home health care program for Holocaust survivors.  This series consists of survey forms gathering information from individuals regarding their health conditions and needs, compiled survey results, and related correspondence, e-mails, health care proposals, actuarial memoranda and reports, sample insurance policies, benefit summaries, product concepts, and newsletters.
