Tell Florida members of Congress: Now is the time to support Medicaid expansion for Florida
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis turned down billions of dollars and left out millions of people from having health care when given a chance at Medicaid expansion. We now have a real opportunity to bring Medicaid expansion to Florida but need your help. As you can see in the image below, Florida has almost 2 million people that could receive health care by joining the other 38 states. Furthermore Florida is leaving $65.2 billion dollars on the table (and eventually it will go to other states).
The Medicaid Saves Lives Act would provide health care insurance to Americans with low incomes in the twelve states that have refused to expand their state Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act. By closing the coverage gap in these states and providing free and affordable health insurance to millions of Americans, the Medicaid Saves Lives Act would also provide access to preventative health care services; improve health outcomes and prevent premature deaths; lower costs for uncompensated care, which would in turn reduce hospital and provider closures; and improve economic mobility for Americans with low-incomes by enabling them to work.
