PROXYMED SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH CARE FLORIDA

 PEMBROKE PINES, Fla., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- ProxyMed Pharmacy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PILL) said today it has signed an agreement to become an approved provider of pharmacy services to members of Care Florida, Inc., a health maintenance organization (HMO) operating in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida.
 Initially, ProxyMed will dispense prescription drugs for one of Care Florida's providers and will provide drug utilization review services to two other providers. "This marks a new step in ProxyMed's growth," said Harold Blue, chairman and chief executive officer.
 "Until now, we had been working only with Humana Medical Plan, Inc. and Humana Health Insurance Company of Florida, Inc. This expansion of our provider base is a major step in our long term growth plan," he added.
 ProxyMed Pharmacy dispenses prescription drugs to HMO members through "filling stations" located in Florida, and offers drug utilization review (DUR) services to HMO providers to assist providers in containing prescription costs. ProxyMed's DUR services are enhanced through an on-line, proactive computer program which allows providers to network with ProxyMed's DUR center.
