On Tuesday Cafe (April 30, 2024) we talked about health care and how to get insurance coverage.

A federal judge has scheduled a trial for May 13 in a lawsuit over people being dropped from Florida’s Medicaid program after the end of the COVID-19 federal public health emergency.

One guest is a doctor who is helping to put a question on Florida’s 2026 ballot to expand Medicaid with a state constitutional amendment. Mona Mangat, MD is board chair of the Committee to Protect Health Care.

We also talked about how you can get healthcare coverage now. We did that with our other guest, Katie Roders Turner – executive director of Family Healthcare Foundation.
