Health Care

For information on our local league’s initiatives re health care, please contact Ruth Brandwein

The Florida League’s 2019 legislative priorities re health care are:

  1. Support expansion of health care access and affordable coverage for low income, uninsured, and under insured under an expansion of Medicaid.
  2. Oppose any barriers to abortion access including gestational limits, state mandated counseling or extended waiting periods.
  3. Oppose any state funding of anti-abortion women’s health centers (known as crisis pregnancy centers).
  4. Support funding of critical health care services such as KidCare, mental health clinics, substance abuse, family planning services and expanded dental care.
