While Kirk had insurance, he felt a sense of confidence and well-being as he was able to take care of his health care needs.
But Kirk’s income as a part-time meatpacker and stocker at a local grocery store dropped to $500 a month, making him ineligible for a health care marketplace subsidy.
Today he relies upon community health organizations to subsidize his prescription medication costs and primary care visits. But having health insurance would change his life, providing him with his old sense of personal assurance that if he needs surgery or hospitalization, he will be able to get it.
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.
