For information on our local league’s initiatives re health care, please contact Kitty Galica

The Florida League’s 2017 legislative priorities re health care are:

  • Correct the Florida KidCare program’s coverage so it will provide insurance to children ages 0 to 1-year old who are not eligible for Medicaid.
  • Develop legislation to accept 2017 Medicaid expansion dollars for Florida, without being bound for future years, or develop a budget for a comprehensive plan to provide health insurance for working.
  • Amend Florida’s Public Health statute, Chapter 390, to remove the provision providing that a physician must delay at least 24 hours before terminating, with a pregnant woman’s voluntary and informed written consent, her pregnancy.
