Protecting Florida's aging population and their caregivers
Florida has a large and growing adult population. The State as a whole has a population approaching 20 million, and people over 60 make up nearly 23 percent of that population.
By 2020, the State is expected to have a population of more then 23.5 million, and people over 60 will make up over 28 percent of that population.
Roadmap to Florida Medicaid Long-Term Care
Our lawmakers should be working to strengthen Medicaid through expansion, not cut funding and services.
In December 2017, Senator Annette Taddeo (D-Miami) and Representative Lori Berman (D-Lantana) filed resolutions calling for Medicaid Expansion
SJR 1136 and HJR 911 would give voters a chance to decide if more hard-working Floridians should be eligible for health coverage.
Contact your lawmakers and demand that they give these bills a hearing during the 2018 legislative session.
