FCA Webinar Series: New PIP Laws After HB 119
By The FCA   
Thursday, 06 June 2013

Effective Dates, New Patients, Denials and Limits.

 
While we would all agree that the “new PIP” is not what Floridians need or expect, you can still be of tremendous service to your patients.  The FCA now offers a new 33-minute webinar on PIP as part of its ongoing effort to assist you in this period of transition, to supplement the vast resources already posted for easy member access on the FCA web site and the PIP classes being offered at every FCA convention this year.  View it at your convenience, as many times as you would like.  We thank our presenters, FCA General Counsel Paul Lambert and FCA Asst. General Counsel Kim Driggers, for their invaluable insights in “New PIP Laws After House Bill 119:  Effective Dates, New Patients, Denials and Limits.”  We also thank Dr. Sig Miller of ChiroView Presents for his excellent job as moderator.
