State Representative Holly Benson (R-Pensacola) is spearheading this initiative, known as Florida Health Counts.
Florida Health Counts ( was inspired by the "100 Innovative Ideas for Florida's Future" project launched by Florida House Speaker-designate Marco Rubio. Rep. Benson's initiative is designed to spark innovative ideas to reduce Florida's uninsured population and provide affordable healthcare and health insurance to all Floridians. The Florida Hospital Association estimates that Florida's hospitals face $2.1 billion in uncompensated care annually.
"All Floridians deserve quality healthcare, but with a rate of nearly 20%, the state's uninsured population places an ever-increasing economic burden on consumers and businesses," said Benson who serves as Chairman of the Health and Families Council.
