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.
