Last week: One indicator of the overall well-being of a community is access to high quality and affordable health care. Over the years, in laudable bipartisan fashion, funding health care access for children has been considered a political win for all. In the past three years, however, according to the Georgetown Health Policy Institute, 55,000 Florida children have lost coverage. This is the second-largest increase of uninsured children in the nation. At a time when we are struggling with a pandemic that is affecting our children, even if it is less fatal for them, we must once again work together to increase access to coverage for our children.
