Pre-Session Update: Direct Primary Care Access Bill clears first hurdle
Tuesday, 10 October 2017
A Special Florida Pre-Session Legislative Update

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - Tallahassee This morning the Florida Senate Banking & Insurance Committee amended and unanimously passed the Direct Primary Care Access bill, SB 80 by Sen. Tom Lee (R-Brandon). It defines primary care provider as an allopath, osteopath, chiropractor or nurse who provides primary care to patients. Under SB 80, primary care services means the screening, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a patient conducted within the competency and training of the primary care provider for the purpose of promoting health or detecting and managing disease or injury. SB 80 authorizes a primary care provider to enter into an agreement with a patient or patient’s employer to provide primary care services at a monthly agreed upon fee. Importantly, the primary care agreements are exempted from insurance regulation. SB 80 passed the Banking & Insurance Committee with the broad support including the National Federation of Independent Businesses, (NFIB), 12 osteopathic and allopathic physician organizations and the FCA. SB 80 as amended is now identical to HB 37 by Rep. Burgess (R-Zephyrhills) which is awaiting its first committee stop in the House.

The National Opioid Crisis: YOU Can Help
Monday, 31 July 2017
Nothing has captured the American consumer more than the opioid crisis. What the chiropractic community has been saying for years is now being said by everyone: opioids kill and there is a need to find a non-drug alternative.
It should be us – the chiropractic profession – that answers this question. However, other non-pharmacologic provider groups have their own agendas, and we can’t let them win in the field of public opinion.
