They No Longer Qualify for CHOICES
With 40 million dollars in the bank, some say that Alachua county's health care program is turning some people away. College students that used to qualify for CHOICES are now being denied coverage because administrators say access to school clinics provide coverage. One nurse at Santa Fe College's clinic said they provide just basic service while CHOICES program director argued that makes students ineligible.
"To say that being able to come here gives you access to health care, the same way the CHOICES insurance program does is really absurd," said nurse Bruce Major.
"It seems to me what they are saying is that we want to opt to the higher level of benefit if we can get it," said CHOICES program Bob Bailey.
