    Created in partnership with the National Health Law Program (NHeLP) and powered by the Soapboxx video recording platform, this project features the experiences of Floridians who rely on Medicaid.

    Michelle (Miami-Dade County, FL)

  • Michelle shares her experience with Medicaid in Florida, and how losing it prior to the COVID-19 pandemic impacted her children's health.

    "I'm a mother of six children, who once received Medicaid. Right before the pandemic hit, we lost our benefits of receiving Medicaid, which was very detrimental because I have one of my children - my baby son - which is 13 years old,

    he suffers from asthma. He has severe asthma."

    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.
