New Direct Health Care Agreement Now Available to FCA Members
By Debra Minor Brown   
Thursday, 05 September 2019
Legislation passed during the 2019 Florida Legislative Session to amend Section 624.27, Florida Statutes, changing the terms Primary Care Provider to Health Care Provider and Direct Primary Care Agreement to Health Care Agreement, intending to allow specialists and dentists to also provide specialty care by entering into direct health care agreements. Gov. DeSantis approved the new law on June 18 and it became law on July 1, 2019. The FCA lobbied for chiropractic inclusion in the original direct primary care (DPC) statute in 2017 and provided a sample agreement at that time for member use. Read on for access to a new sample agreement that reflects changes made by the 2019 legislation.

FLORIDA’S ANSWER TO A FREE MARKETPLACE FOR TREATMENT BETWEEN DOCTORS, PATIENTS, AND EMPLOYERS!  

If you haven’t read it yet, please read about the new, July 1, 2018, Direct Primary Care (DPC) law, in the April/May/June edition of the FCA Journal.  Florida is now added to the list of only 16 states of the 25 states in the country with Direct Primary Care laws for chiropractic physicians.  What does this mean?  Now you are able to contract directly with patients and employers for a monthly set fee for services you agree upon, without the hassles of insurance.  Is this true?  Yes, the law specifically provides that these agreements are not insurance and you are not bound by Florida’s insurance laws.
