Through media outreach, social media campaigns, grassroots activism, and collaboration with state-wide coalition partners through the Health Care for Florida Now coalition, Florida CHAIN brought attention to the state’s urgent need for expanded access to health care, urged the Legislature to accept the available funding, and ensured Floridians’ voices were heard.
Despite the work of consumers, advocates, businesses, and lawmakers, the Florida House refused to approve Medicaid expansion in Florida during the 2013 legislative session. But as long as there are hardworking Floridians struggling without health care, we won’t stop to advocating for Medicaid expansion in our state.
We need volunteers from across the state – in every county, town, and district – educating the uninsured, putting the pressure on their legislators, and sharing their powerful healthcare stories.
