Florida’s legislative session will end soon, and lawmakers have yet to decide if and how they will expand health care to uninsured Floridians of modest means. What’s at stake: Health care for roughly a million low-income Floridians and more than $50 billion in federal money.
Extending coverage not only has vital health benefits for so many working, uninsured residents – It also would create 121,000 new jobs statewide, according to a University of Florida study. State budget estimates also show that accepting federal funds to help cover the uninsured will result in substantial annual savings for Florida.
