Policy Brief
Rather than expand Medicaid, Florida should work to reform its Medicaid program to ensure that beneficiaries receive more accessible, higher-quality care. It should also consider creating incentives that encourage physicians to provide a certain amount of pro bono care. Now is the time for Florida’s elected officials to put partisan politics aside and work together to ensure that Florida’s most financially fragile and medically vulnerable residents receive the care they need and deserve. Medicaid never has been and never will be a healthy, evidence-based way to do that.
