Doctors for America Applauds Florida Medical Association for Endorsing Medicaid Expansion for Nearly 1M Floridians
Doctors for America released the following statement applauding the Florida Medical Association for voting to endorse Medicaid expansion for nearly one million Floridians at the organization’s annual conference in Orlando this past weekend.
Statement from Doctors for America Florida State Director Dr. Mona Mangat, Chair of Doctors for America and an Allergist-Immunologist based in St. Petersburg.
“The Florida Medical Association sent a resounding message about the importance of increasing access to health care for nearly one million Floridians. Doctors across Florida are united in expanding access to care because we know this is the right move for our patients and our state. We applaud the FMA for this vote and look forward to working together in the upcoming legislative session to fight for the 2,200 Floridians who will die this year, people like Charlene Dill, because they do not have access to the care they need.”
