Amendment 01: Health Care
Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage; permit a person or an employer to purchase lawful health care services directly from a health care provider; permit a health care provider to accept direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; exempt persons, employers, and health care providers from penalties and taxes for paying directly or accepting direct payment for lawful health care services; and prohibit laws or rules from abolishing the private market for health care coverage of any lawful health care service.
what your vote means
A YES means the state cannot force any person, employer or health care provider to participate in a health care system -- specifically, the Affordable Care Act -- and cannot tax or fine citizens who do not have insurance and pay for health care costs out of pocket.
A NO means the state may follow the individual mandate created by the Affordable Care Act, which requires every Floridian to obtain health care coverage.
