Your Action Needed Today: Horrific PIP Bill CS for HB119C
Up To The Minute
By Jack Hebert, FCA Government Relations Director   
Tuesday, 24 January 2012

            The worst PIP bill seen to date, CS for HB 119 sponsored by Rep. Boyd, is on the agenda for consideration by the House Civil Justice Subcommittee tomorrow morning, Wednesday, January 25th, at 8:00am. Please make it a personal priority today to contact members of this committee listed below. This bill creates a PIP system that would be totally based on emergency care. Only those (a) transported by ambulance, (b) treated in a hospital by MD, DO, dentist, ARNP or PA, or (c) admitted to the hospital would be eligible for the $10,000 in benefits. Hospital care must take place within 72 hours of the accident. Only if you have one of these scenarios could you then get “subsequent care” by the same listed providers. No treatment by DC or LMT is allowed. Click here to see a list of the changes this bill would create by shifting from a PIP to an “emergency care system.”

            This bill would not only be damaging to DC’s and other health care providers who aren’t hospital-based practitioners: It is patently anti-consumer for many reasons. Here are just a few of the obvious flaws that can be mentioned to legislators listed below, who will be considering this bill tomorrow morning:

Wednesday, 11 January 2012
           Tallahassee – Less than 24 hours after the start of their their annual lawmaking session, a Florida House subcommittee gave their nod of approval to a proposal hidden from view until the last minute proposing radical and sweeping changes to the state’s current PIP/no-fault insurance law. By a straight party-line vote of the House Insurance and Banking Subcommittee, a Republican-controlled majority approved a measure that would have the effect of forcing all future auto accident victims into hospital emergency rooms to seek care, at the same time unreasonably excluding any and all access to chiropractic care.

PIP Reform Ideas Surface on Sessionís Eve
Up To The Minute
By Jack Hebert, FCA Government Relations Director and Paul Lambert, FCA General Counsel   
Monday, 09 January 2012
Tallahassee – The day before state lawmakers are set to kick-off their annual 60-day session, two of the newest proposals seeking to reform the state’s no-fault automobile insurance program have just been released.  One, in the form of an actual Senate bill, makes a variety of modest adjustments aimed at attacking fraud, with a few exceptions that are of concern.  The other, believed to be a draft of a possible future House bill, is a massive redesign of PIP proposing an emergency care system which effectively eliminates access to chiropractic treatment.
