Call to Action on Bad Amendment to Better PIP Bill, Senate Bill 1860 by Negron
At 3:45 this afternoon, the Senate Budget Committee will turn its attention to Senate Bill 1860 by Sen. Joe Negron (R-Palm City) which proposes a number of changes to Florida's PIP/No-fault insurance system. The bill is a radical departure from the slash-and-burn product currently moving through the House. Sen. Negron's proposal is a much more thoughtful and comprehensive product which actually addresses fraud and works to reduce premiums and protect patient choice. SB 1860, in its current form, is supported by the FCA and coalition partners.
Of concern is a very bad 146-page amendment which was filed hours ago on Monday evening, Amendment #344314 by Senator Richter, which would conform SB 1860 more closely to the bad House PIP bill by Rep. Boyd. To read more, click here.
