A Comprehensive List of State and County Based
Resources for the Uninsured
July 2010
i
Forward
This document represents a comprehensive list of programs available and
serving the health care needs of the uninsured in Florida. Other resources exist
that outline various community social service programs, however, this is the first
to focus entirely on health care. While it is intended to be a comprehensive,
exhaustive list of all health care resources provided in Florida’s communities, the
sheer volume of public and private programs available make it likely that some
were omitted from this document. The authors would like to gratefully
acknowledge the assistance and input of the various agencies and partners in
the state, and encourage anyone with additional information on any programs
that may have been overlooked to contact the Office of Medicaid Research
Contracts and Evaluations.
