Its Here on July 1st Direct Primary Care Includes Chiropractic
By Kim Driggers, FCA Asst. General Counsel   
Tuesday, 26 June 2018


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.
