ICYMI: State REFUSES to Offer Relief to KidCare Recipients

From Johanna Cervone, FDP Spokesperson: “The health and safety of Florida’s children must come before anything else. It is unacceptable that state officials have not done more to offer relief to KidCare recipients who have lost their incomes or homes to Hurricane Irma. Rick Scott must immediately reverse this shameful decision by the Agency for Healthcare Administration and postpone collection of premiums for families in distress.”
