Avoid cuts to health care funding for Florida’s most vulnerable

Tallahassee – The Coalition to Heal Healthcare in Florida, Inc., has introduced a new television commercial shining a light on the impact of proposed Medicaid cuts on the state’s most vulnerable citizens: its children.

The spot notes that seven in 10 Floridians enrolled in the Medicaid program are pregnant women and children, therefore cuts would affect these two groups the most. The Coalition, a statewide bipartisan organization, is working at the grassroots level to stop unprecedented cuts to Florida’s Medicaid program.

“It’s bad enough that Medicaid cuts would harm those Floridians who are least able to find other ways to obtain health care. But the harm that cuts will cause to children is inexcusable and cannot be ignored,” said Bruce Rueben, president of the Florida Hospital Association.

The commercial will debut on February 17.   It is part of a broader Coalition effort against Medicaid cuts that includes a website, social media engagement platforms and an earlier TV commercial. The Coalition’s overall message to legislators is No More Cuts.

The video, “The Children’s Wing,” can be viewed at www.healflhealthcare.com.

Heal Florida Health Care – “The Children’s Wing”

When a child is hurting, your heart drops.

Which is why around here, we put it all on the line.

But if the Legislature cuts Medicaid again, too many kids will face longer odds.

One day … that kid could be yours.

It’s bad enough Medicaid cuts will affect health care

… for seniors …

… the disabled

… and moms-to-be.

But our children?

Call your legislator.

Paid for by the Coalition to Heal Healthcare in Florida, Inc.

Medicaid provides a safety net for 3 million of Florida’s low-income families, children, the elderly and disabled. To date, more than 50 organizations have joined the Coalition to Heal Healthcare in Florida, Inc. to oppose further reductions to this all-important program.
