TAKE ACTION FOR EXPANSION
CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS
On Wednesday, April 7, the Florida House will have the opportunity to debate Amendment 925637 to House Bill 5201, the House’s proposed health care budget. The amendment would expand Medicaid eligibility to Floridians making less than 138% of the federal poverty level. The House’s current budget proposal calls for over $500 million in cuts to Medicaid.
Don’t miss this chance to tell your elected officials that you support Medicaid expansion and to remind them that it would:
Cover 1.1 million hardworking, low-income Floridians.
Reduce the amount of uncompensated hospital care provided to the increased number of uninsured due to the pandemic.
It’s time for Florida legislators to consider and debate this important policy. Tell them why you support Medicaid expansion before April 7 using this form.
