North Broward Hospital District Reduces Millage Rate to Lowest in Four Years
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – The North Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners voted Wednesday, Sept. 25, to reduce the 2013/2014 millage rate to 1.7554, lower than the roll back rate of 1.7893 mills and the lowest rate in four years.
Broward Health provides care for more than 80 percent of the indigent, uninsured and underinsured living in the northern two-thirds of Broward County. The new rate reduces the burden on tax payers by $2.8 million while continuing to provide a portion of the cost to provide care for the needy.
