BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Brickbats to the Florida Department of Health

Posted

Brickbats to the Florida Department of Health for barring navigators from trying to help people sign up for federally subsidized health insurance at county health departments. C. Meade Grigg, the Department of Health’s deputy secretary for statewide services, sent an order out on Sept. 14, saying navigators could not conduct activities on the grounds of health departments. Fabien Levy, a Health & Human Services spokesman, called the directive “a blatant and shameful attempt to intimidate groups who will be working to inform Americans about their new health insurance options and help them enroll in coverage, just like Medicare counselors have been doing for years.”
