Health care workers here in Florida and across the nation are fighting to bring this coronavirus outbreak under control and protect the health of millions of Americans. We must have their back. Take action and call your member of Congress at 844-898-1199.
By Marlyn Hoilette, RN. With millions of Floridians uninsured, the state ranks a lowly 46 out of 50 for the rate of residents who have health care coverage.
Republicans in the US Senate have given their health care plan a different name “Graham-Cassidy”, but it’s almost entirely the same old, disastrous, morally reprehensible health care bill that was defeated by one vote in July. It’s on a fast track for a vote and your voice is needed right now.
As I write this, nearly 600,000 hardworking Floridians are stuck in what’s called the “coverage gap.” These are friends and neighbors who don’t make enough money to qualify for subsidized health insurance through the Healthcare.gov marketplace, and make too much money to qualify for Medicaid.
