"And most people...will not take their kids to the doctor if they are not insured. So, if we don't have Medicaid for the children, and the parents don't know how to afford it,
what happens to the children when they're sick,
when they're hurt or anything like that?"

Medicaid is an essential program for over 4 million Floridians, providing healthcare coverage for pregnant women and their newborn babies, children in low-income families and those with special health needs, frail seniors, and persons with disabilities needing long-term services and support. Yet, some beneficiaries experience systemic barriers to necessary care.
Sharing the stories of those who rely on Medicaid is critical. Your video testimonial will serve as a powerful advocacy tool to help educate the public, the media and policymakers in understanding how important Medicaid is for Floridians and their families.
The Florida Health Justice Project, a nonprofit organization, recognizes that access to quality and affordable health care is a human right and engages in comprehensive advocacy to expand health care access and promote health equity for vulnerable Floridians.
