30 Hour Work Week Health Care Benefits

I'm moving from a 40 hour/week job in Texas, to a 30-hour/week job in Florida. Here in Texas I get health benifits but in Florida I will not be provided with the company health insurance plan. The Human Resources department at my job in Texas tells me that as long as I'm working at least 30 hours a week in Texas, I'm considered full time and the employer is required to offer me health care. Is this requirement/law the same in Florida? Should I legally be getting/offered health insurance at this new 30 hour/week job? Thank you for any clarification.

In Texas.

There is not a general requirement that employers offer health care in Texas. A Florida attorney should be consulted as regards requirements there.
