Why Florida Needs Medicaid Expansion
Nearly 500,000 Floridians have no access to affordable health insurance. They earn too much to qualify for Medicaid and too little to qualify for Marketplace tax credits.
In Florida, to be eligible for Medicaid the most a family of 3 can earn and still qualify is about $7,000 a year. Adults with no children aren't eligible at all.
The expansion is paid for by Florida’s federal tax dollars that would be returned to the state.The federal share will never be less than 90% of the costs.
Florida would save roughly $200 million a year in health care costs by expanding the Medicaid program, according to the Florida Policy Institute.
