About CAC-Florida Medical Centers

CAC-Florida Medical Centers is a subsidiary of health and well-being
company Humana Inc. The first CAC medical center opened its doors to
Miami-Dade County’s Hispanic population in 1964 under the name Clínica
Asociación Cubana. CAC holds the distinction of being Florida’s first
managed care facilities granted a license to operate as a health
maintenance organization (HMO) as a result of the Congressional HMO Act
of 1973. Today, the CAC brand is recognized throughout South and Central
Florida for its commitment to members of the communities it serves and
the provision of high quality, readily accessible health care.

The centers operate in a staff model setting whereby routine medical and
ancillary health care services are provided in “One Place” and
orchestrated by primary care physicians. This type of health care
delivery is familiar to many CAC patients of Hispanic origin who grew up
around the staff model setting in their native countries before
migrating to South Florida. Today, the company operates full-service,
multi-specialty medical centers in Miami-Dade, Orlando and Tampa to
serve a culturally diverse Medicare and Medicaid patient base.
