TROPICANA SELECTS NEW HEALTH AND DENTAL CARE CARRIERS

 BRADENTON, Fla., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Tropicana announced today that it has elected new medical and dental insurance carriers for Tropicana employees effective Jan. 1, 1994. Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Florida will administer our medical programs and Delta Dental will administer the dental program.
 In addition to its traditional medical and dental plans, managed care options will be offered to employees in many locations. The move to managed care by Tropicana reflects the company's efforts to ensure that benefit dollars will continue to be spent to bring maximum benefit to its employees, as well as to Tropicana.
 In its search for managed care providers, Tropicana reviewed proposals from seven health and eight dental carriers, representing many of the best known names in the health care industry. Final selection was based on the provider's ability to provide quality coverages that have a positive impact on costs, as well as its quality of service and its ability to offer managed care networks with broad access to quality doctors, hospitals and other providers.
 Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Florida is the state's largest health insurer providing health care for over two million Florida residents. Health Options, the Blue Cross/Blue Shield managed care subsidiary has been in operation in the Bradenton area for more than seven years and offers a board network of quality providers. Delta Dental has 23 years experience in managed care and has a proven track record of cost savings through its sophisticated claims systems.
