  • Florida and Medicaid

    This year, the Florida Legislature explored the option of expanding Medicaid coverage in our state. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires states to expand Medicaid coverage to everyone below 138 percent of the federal poverty level. Last summer, the U.S. Supreme Court issued the opinion that Medicaid expansion would not be mandatory, but rather, each state could decide whether it was in its best interest to expand. As incentive to expand fully, the Obama Administration and Congress promised full federal funding for three years.
