Sen. Soto has witnessed a huge increase in demand for health care services in and around the district as a result of the recent economic downturn during his 5 years in office. Everyday his office has served countless constituents in need of Medicaid benefits, emergency surgeries and information on KidCare, WIC and other Florida health care programs. Darren is committed to continue to provide these high quality government services to our community in the Florida Senate.
Sen. Soto has continually pushed to streamline the KidCare application process to assure children from families in need are able to receive critical and often life-saving health care services. Darren believes that access to health care is critical to the success of our children and must be preserved. He also fought the newly enacted health care reforms privatizing our Medicaid system. Now that the reform has passed, Darren will continue to work to assure this new system will still serve the health care needs of our community.
