PIP/No-fault Repeal Passes Senate Committee
Wednesday, 22 January 2020

Wednesday, January 22, 2020, Tallahassee – Late yesterday afternoon the Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee voted 6-1 to approve Senate Bill 378 by Sen. Tom Lee (R-Tampa). The legislation proposes to repeal Florida’s four-decades-old no-fault auto insurance system, replacing it with a new at-fault system requiring drivers carry mandatory bodily injury and property damage coverage. Sen. Lee, who introduced similar bills during the last two sessions, also chairs this committee. His efforts in previous years both died on the calendar, lacking final consideration. 

The FCA was the only health care and chiropractic group rising to speak in opposition to the proposal. FCA General Counsel Paul lambert provided testimony on one of our main points of concern: The lack of any provision in the bill that protects doctors from a patient’s or attorney’s failure to satisfy an outstanding balance per a letter of protection, upon the patient’s settlement or judgment in a personal injury claim or action.

Paul Lambert, FCA General Counsel testifies in opposition to the repeal of PIP/No-fault before the Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee.
