FGA CEO to Serve as Health and Wellness Advisor to Gov-Elect DeSantis

Naples, FL – Tarren Bragdon, President and CEO of the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA), was recently named to Florida Governor-elect Ron DeSantis and Lt. Governor-elect Jeanette Nuñez’s Transition Advisory Committee on Health and Wellness. Yesterday, Bragdon was invited to present before the committee, providing insight and analysis on new health care opportunities for Floridians and emphasizing the importance of work in securing healthy futures for Floridians.

Bragdon provided information on short-term plans and association health plans (AHPs), which are expected to increase affordable health care options for all Floridians, including small businesses, entrepreneurs, and retired individuals.

The committee was formed to provide advice to the Governor-elect and his team as they begin their work to improve access, lower costs, preserve resources for the truly needy, and build a better health care system for all Floridians.

“Commonsense solutions to our health care crisis are on the horizon,” said Tarren Bragdon, President and CEO of FGA. “Using proven solutions, Florida policymakers can build off a solid foundation of past reforms and can further reduce costs and promote more affordable private insurance options. I am honored to serve on Governor-elect DeSantis and Lt. Gov-elect Nuñez’s Transition Advisory Committee. I look forward to working with them to improve the lives of Floridians.”
