Access to healthcare

Access to healthcare 2019-12-20T10:18:53-04:00

Affordable health care is the cornerstone for success at all ages in life. Research has shown that Florida continues to have one of the highest uninsured rates in the nation. Many Floridians go without needed health care in order to make ends meet financially.

Expanding availability

United Way believes that access to health care should be a priority for the Florida legislature in 2020. That’s why we are advocating to:

  • DELETE statutory language which restricts access to federal dollars for school-based mental healthcare.
  • MAXIMIZE home and community-based services for older adults to reduce nursing home costs and waitlists.
  • INCREASE targeted funding for prevention and treatment
