The problem of indigent health care has received much attention from governmental officials, health care providers, health policy analysts, and others. A majority of states have generated legislative proposals to deal with the problem, although their strategies differ in terms of method and scope. This article discusses Florida's approach to the problem as contained in the Health Care Access Act of 1984 and subsequent legislation. The article will provide background on the reasons a hospital assessment strategy was chosen as the funding mechanism and will examine the problems that occurred during the implementation phase of the legislation.
