Rick Scott continues to stall the feds over hospital funding

From Politico’s Marc Caputo, 5/13/15:

Excerpts from a letter to United States’ Health and Human Services exec Sylvia Burwell:
“First, would HHS consider giving Florida a block grant of federal money to decide how to cover those who currently do not have government or privat insurance?…
Second, outside of the Medicare program entirely, would HHS be interested in a larger population of individuals being eligible for insurance plans offered on the 100-percent-federally-funded exchange, without assessing any new fees or administrative costs to the state?…
Third, will HHS support healthcare coverage initiatives that specifically protect the hundreds of thousands of Floridians between 100% to 138% of the federal poverty line from losing their current private health plans on the federal exchange with any future reforms?…”
