Haylee Kalick and her father, Bruce Kalick, in Weston, June 29, 2017. Haylee, 21, has not been committed to a hospital psychiatric ward in more than two years. Before Haylee qualified for Medicaid, she was institutionalized against her will under Florida’s Baker Act nearly 20 times, Bruce Kalick says.
