Here We Go Again on Medicaid
By The FCA   
Tuesday, 05 February 2013
The Governor released his proposed budget late last week and, once again, as it has been for virtually every year since FCA successfully lobbied to include chiropractic in Florida Medicaid, the bureaucracy and Governor are recommending it be eliminated (along with podiatry, another “optional service” per the federal law).  The Governor’s staff gave a courtesy call to the FCA (and the Florida Podiatric Association) late last week to report the position.   If you have been attuned to FCA legislative reporting over the last 20 years, you know that we have been successful each time, thus far, in having it reinstated in the legislative budgetary process.  We do not take this lightly, however.  What this means is that the FCA will need to fight this issue once again in the 2013 legislative session.   We cherish your continued support.
