• Florida Health Justice STORIES

    Over 400,000 low-income Floridians have no pathway to affordable health coverage because our state has not expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

     

    The people who serve our communities every day--waitresses, home health aides, day care workers, car mechanics, construction workers--go without the health care they need while our tax dollars to cover them sit in Washington D.C.

    Your stories have the power to change that.
