Health care needs to be viewed as a right and not a privilege. COVID-19 further highlighted the need for greater health care access and affordability. To make matters worse, Florida ranks last in per-person spending on mental health services and has no statewide mental health coordinating agency.
I will fight to make sure Floridians can get the care they need without worrying if they can afford it.
Here is my plan:
- Advocate for the expansion of Medicaid to reduce the uninsured rate and allow our most vulnerable residents to get access to care.
- Increase funding for mental health programs and services that include drug abuse counseling and mentor-ship programs for those who need it.
- Improve statewide oversight over mental health providers and ensure better care and expanded coverage.
I will work to fix our broken health care system and help get Floridians the care they need.
