NAM Published Article on Florida's Continued Efforts to Expand Medicaid

NAM: New America Media (NAM) published an article highlighting KidsWell Florida’s continued efforts to expand Medicaid despite the legislature failing to pass a bill during the 2013 legislative session. The article highlights the advocates’ efforts working with communities and partners to build support within the legislature. When asked what people can do to help, Nicholas Duran of The Children’s Health Movement stated, “The answer is constituents going to their elected officials and letting them know how this policy impacts their lives. The people have to realize that their voice does count.” Leah Barber-Heinz of Florida CHAIN was also highlighted in the article, noting that the October 1st open enrollment period for Exchanges is “an ideal time to better inform the public about Medicaid expansion.”
