Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement on health care assistance from the Florida Healthy Kids Corporation for Hurricane Michael victims.
“The Florida Panhandle was devastated by Hurricane Michael just one week ago and I have been on the ground listening to the needs of these communities. I am thankful that Florida Healthy Kids has stepped up to waive premiums and extend renewals for the over 5,600 children in the impacted areas. These measures will save lives and allow children to receive needed health care as their families rebuild after this catastrophic storm.
“I thank Governor Scott for his leadership in this effort and the board for stepping up to assist Florida families in need.”
