Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, federal officials approved a five-year Medicaid managed-care extension and secured $1.5 billion in funding to Florida’s Low Income Pool. Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) issued the following statement:

 "I am pleased that the Administration and the State of Florida have been able to finalize an agreement for the extension of the Medicaid managed waiver and Low Income Pool. Throughout my time in Congress, I have strongly urged each Administration to provide adequate funding for Florida's Low Income Pool,” Curbelo said. “This $1.5 billion in resources is necessary to ensure that the most vulnerable in our community are able to receive quality healthcare.”
