 The state’s largest health insurer, Florida Blue, will be eliminating 150 jobs this week, the Palm Beach Post reports. That’s between one and two percent of the company’s workforce of nearly 11,000 employees. According to the Post, company officials didn't say what departments or regions will  be affected.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
