For 19-and-20-year-olds, Medicaid will be a lifeline; lawmakers nix cuts in health care program for young adults [Florida Phoenix]

"It looks like young, low-income Floridians will continue to be able to access affordable health care through Medicaid now that state lawmakers have nixed cuts in health care funding for 19-and-20-year-olds.

The change comes as lawmakers wrap up the state budget for 2021-22. The legislative session is scheduled to end Friday.


We applaud legislators for coming together and maintaining Medicaid coverage for young adult Floridians,” said Anne Swerlick, senior policy analyst at the Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added]."
