Repeal of the RCA Statute and LMTs Performing Treatment on PIP Patients
Tuesday, 21 April 2020
House Bill 713 (Department of Health) by Rep. Ana Maria Rodriguez (R-Doral) [Senate companion 230 by Sen. Gayle Harrell (R-Stuart)], passed on March 20, 2020 and is awaiting the Governor’s approval. It is expected that the Governor will either sign the bill into law or allow it to become law without his signature. The bill proposes to repeal registration of chiropractic assistants effective July 1, 2020 which means that on July 1, 2020 registrations of chiropractic assistants will be without effect. No further registered chiropractic assistant applications will be granted.  The 87-page Bill proposed by the Department of Health, amends various health regulation statutes and repeals health care regulatory statutes that are no longer needed. In passing HB 713, the legislature implemented Gov. DeSantis’s goal of reducing government regulation 

The repeal of the RCA statute will have no effect on operations of chiropractic offices. Chiropractic physicians may continue to hire individuals to assist in the treatment of patients under direct supervision of a chiropractic physician or certified chiropractic physician’s assistant. Traditionally, employees assisting the chiropractic physician have been referred to as chiropractic assistants or CAs

Almost Done: Legislature Heads into Overtime
Monday, 16 March 2020
Monday, March 16, 2020, Tallahassee – State lawmakers, scheduled to end their 60-day legislative session on Friday, worked up until their midnight deadline before finally acknowledging they would need to extend to complete the one task they are mandated to complete each year: Passing a state budget for the next fiscal year. Budget work continued into the weekend as leaders in both the House and Senate worked behind the scenes to hammer out their differences. Their final conference report was “published” on Sunday, triggering a 72-hour “cooling off” period before a final vote can be taken. Current plans call for lawmakers to return to the capitol on Thursday afternoon to vote on their record $93.2-billion budget plan.

Extended Session? No-fault/PIP Repeal Dead?
Friday, 06 March 2020
Friday, March 6, 2020, Tallahassee – With just one week remaining in this year’s annual lawmaking session, questions continue to mount as legislative leaders suggest they may not be able to complete their work by their scheduled adjournment on March 13th. While budget negotiations between the House and Senate leaders are supposedly taking place behind-the-scenes, neither body has moved forward to appoint the usual assemblage of conferees to formally accomplish the goal of hammering out a state government spending plan in the sunshine. Passing a balanced budget is the only chore the legislature must accomplish before adjourning, the likelihood of which now appears improbable without the possible overtime extension suggested yesterday by both the Speaker and President.
