Dr. Helma Chairs FHSAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee
Monday, 09 July 2018
Pat Helma, D.C., DACBSP, was in the spotlight recently, per a newspaper report in the Tallahassee Democrat.  Dr. Helma chairs the 15-member Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) of the Florida High School Athletic Association.  The FCA fought hard in 2012 to amend §1006.20, FS, to add a chiropractic physician to the committee. Dr. Helma was recommended by the FCA to fill the first such appointment, because of the confidence the FCA has in him to educate the committee about the effectiveness of chiropractic in athletics.  He is the lone DC on a committee of eight allopaths/osteopaths, one podiatrist, one dentist and three athletic trainers.  Yet, in this short time he has become chair of the committee!  This is something to be celebrated by all Florida DC’s. Thank you, Dr. Helma, for meeting this heavy obligation as an exemplar chiropractic physician.  Dr. Helma is the right FCA member at the right time to lead this committee and to showcase chiropractic.  Read more to access the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper report.

Renewal notices for Health Care Clinic Exemptions - OPTIONAL
Friday, 06 July 2018
Several members have received notices from the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to renew their Health Care Clinic Exemption status.  The fee for this renewal is $100.00.  Historically, this exemption did not require renewals or renewal fees. This exemption is OPTIONAL for chiropractic physicians who wholly own their practice in accordance with their licensing regulation of 460.4165 and meet the PIP provider eligibility criteria; see link to form below.  For chiropractic physicians no longer wishing to retain their "exempt" status with the AHCA, the renewal notice may be ignored and they will be dropped from the list as of October 30,2018.

PIP Case Law Update
Friday, 06 April 2018
Just recently, the Florida Supreme Court agreed to hear the issue regarding the application of the PIP deductible.  For years now, the county, circuit, and now appellate courts have issued varying opinions on how insurance companies should apply the PIP deductible.  To the provider’s office, it can mean a couple of hundred bucks on each patient carrying a PIP deductible.  To the insurance companies, it can mean millions.
