A company that has been managing care outside the United States now has permission to run benefit plans in Florida.

Olympus Managed Health Care Inc., Miami, has received a license from the Florida Department of Insurance that permits it to operate as a third party administrator for health plans and other payers in the Sunshine State.

Olympus, which was founded in 1994 and has been providing services such as claims management and call center support for non-U.S. organizations, now hopes to sell health claims and administrative services in Florida.
