Florida Hospital Association offering a ‘Florida Remedy’ for PPACA implementation

in Uncategorized by

The Florida Hospital Association is pushing The Florida Remedy through paid media, beginning tomorrow in Miami with Spanish Language radio. Extending health care coverage polls extraordinarily well with Hispanic voters (74 percent) according to recent polling by Republican polling firm Public Opinion Strategies. The Florida Remedy is a roadmap for extending Medicaid coverage through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as long as the federal financial commitment stays in place and managed care is approved.  

Earlier today, Governor Rick Scott announced that Florida received approval on the second Medicaid waiver.

The Florida Remedy

“Our Health”

:60 Radio

Female Announcer:

When it comes to personal health, every American should have a right to the greatest system of medical care in the world.

But for many families who need help, that might not happen unless Florida does something other states already are…extend health care coverage to more than one million Floridians without insurance or coverage…including my kids and me.

I am a working mom, but I still cannot afford health care coverage…and I’m not alone.

Florida hospitals, businesses and community leaders are now doing their part, pulling together to support a ‘Florida Remedy’…on the condition the federal government continues to keeps its promise on Medicaid.

They always have.

That protects not only families and the disabled, but every Florida taxpayer.

3 out of 4 Hispanics in Florida support extending health care coverage… because it’s the right thing to do. Now leaders from Miami to Jacksonville are speaking out.

Go online to solucionflorida.com to tell your legislator how you feel…and what this would mean to your family.

Florida has a chance to send a message to the rest of the nation: when it comes to our health, we stand together.
