Tell Florida not to block Obamacare outreach workers from meeting with uninsured

To be delivered to C. Meade Grigg, Deputy Florida DOH secretary

Petition Statement

The Florida Department of Health's mission statement is to "protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida."

Please rescind your order barring navigators from the grounds of state health care facilities, so they can meet with the uninsured and help them gain access to health care.
There are currently 12,625 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Unable to repeal Obamacare at the federal level, Republicans have taken their ideological crusade to deny health care access for the uninsured elsewhere.

The Florida Department of Health has banned federal outreach workers (called “Navigators”) from coming onto state health facilities for the purpose of signing up the uninsured for subsidized health care coverage available under Obamacare.

Please sign our petition telling Florida Department of Health officials to allow health care Navigators on state owned health facilities to discuss the Affordable Care Act.
