The Florida Health Care Association, AARP and LeadingAge Florida have formed the new Coalition for Silver Solutions.

The group is tasked with lobbying for “sufficient funding for both home-based and long-term care” and retaining Medicaid funding, and working to “formulate long-term strategies that will guide Florida as it deals with the unique and increasing challenges of the state’s large and growing population of seniors,” according to a statement from the group.
