For over half a million Floridians, lack of affordable health coverage is a daily burden. Those in Florida's Coverage Gap don't qualify for Medicaid OR for Marketplace tax credits. The good news? You can help! Urge Florida legislators to expand Medicaid at http://ow.ly/I37Q50JLAU8

Whether you've been an active member, you're interested in doing more, or you'd like to connect with Floridians who care about improving the health care system - we'd love to have you! It's a great opportunity to learn where things stand and what you can do to create change.

You'll learn what Medicaid expansion is, why it matters to Florida, and how you can help make it a reality. We’ll also hear from the leaders of Florida Decides Healthcare, the state's ballot initiative campaign.

Spanish and Kreyol interpretation services will be available. This event is closed to media.

Florida's health care system is expensive for everyone. However, there are half a million low-income Floridians who don't have any options for health care because they don't qualify for Medicaid. Health Care for Florida is a coalition committed to ending Florida's status as one of the last 12 states to expand access to affordable health care. Register here http://ow.ly/AT3J50JiCg1 for an informational session to discuss how you can join the movement to bring this to Florida.

Are you interested in advancing your disability advocacy skills! The application for the 2022-23 Partners in Policymaking class is now open!!!

A recent PIP graduate stated: “I did my best to advocate for my daughter but felt like I was still floundering and didn't quite have the confidence to take my advocacy efforts to the next level. The knowledge I have learned in Partners classes, as well as the networking I have been able to do, transitioned me from a struggling parent advocate to disability activist with an intentional plan!"

And a self-advocate reported: “This program has given me SO MUCH information that no one ever told me before! I never knew that I could be so involved in the decisions that were being made for me. I found my voice and learned how to use it! I credit Partners in Policymaking for helping me get into college and find the job that I wanted… not the one someone else thought I should have.”

Partners in Policymaking is a PREMIERE advocacy and leadership training program for people with developmental disabilities and parents of children with developmental disabilities. Join this elite force of systems change agents by applying TODAY. It'll be one of the biggest life changing decisions you've ever made!

Applications are being accepted now until JUNE 30, 2022.
This year’s program will be IN PERSON

*** The first 10 registered and participating providers will receive a $50 stipend. ***

Approximately 14 million children and 61 million adults (1 in 4) are impacted by disabilities across United States. This population experiences a disproportionate burden of poor oral health. Provider participation in special needs dentistry has become an urgent need across U.S. However, little is known about the risk the dental providers (Dentists, DHs, DAs, and DTs) assume in management of the special need’s population, especially among Medicaid participating providers. Through this roundtable, FIHI aims to understand the upside incentives vs direct downside risks from the perspective of the providers to inform future measures to increase provider participation and access to dental care.

WHEN: Wednesday, February 2, 2022
5:30 – 7:00 PM ET

WHERE: http://ow.ly/MIGZ50HcGa9

The roundtable discussion will focus on the following topics:
1. Medicaid and risk management issues faced by providers serving special needs population.
2. Provider and partner recommendations, tools and techniques (know-hows) for caring for the special needs population.
