An advocacy group is working to bring Medicaid expansion to the ballot in Florida’s 2026 elections, according to a Feb. 1 report in the Tallahassee Democrat. Organizers will need to collect nearly 1 million signatures, but expansion initiatives have already been successful in seven other states. Florida currently serves 5.09 million Medicaid beneficiaries, with 73% enrolled in managed care plans. More than 1.4 million people could become eligible for Medicaid under expansion, the campaign manager for the group, Florida Decides Healthcare, said at a press conference.
