The Miami Herald: One year after healthcare reform

March 22, 2011 – This Wednesday is the first anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. In Florida, the celebration, like our healthcare outlook, is not a cheerful one. There are more than four million uninsured residents in Florida. More than 500,000 residents in Miami-Dade County and 400,000 in Broward County are uninsured. Despite those numbers, our legislative leadership turned down even-bigger numbers: $1 million in federal funds that were to be used for planning to cover the uninsured and another $1 million for a health-insurance exchange to help small businesses access health coverage for their employees.
