ACTION ITEM: SB132 Calls and Emails needed by Tomorrow the 17th. Primary Care Agreements

Tallahassee Legislative Alert

(1 ACTION ALERT IN THIS MESSAGE)

Specifies that direct primary care agreement does not constitute insurance & is not subject to Florida Insurance Code


SB 132 provides that a direct primary agreement and the act of entering into such an agreement are not insurance and not subject to regulation under the Florida Insurance Code and exempts a primary care provider, which includes a primary care group practice, or his or her agent, from any certification or license requirements in the Code for marketing, selling, or offering to sell an agreement.

These direct patient/doctor agreements allow a system uncontrolled by government regulations to develop. It makes doctors responsive to patients, not insurance company bureaucrats or government rule-makers. Because government bureaucrats do not like anything they can’t regulate and control, and big insurance companies do not like competition, there are attempts to define Direct Primary Care agreements as a form of insurance that would be under a mountain of regulations and bureaucratic red tape.

SB 132 would protect direct patient/doctor agreements from burdensome government regulations and represents a first step toward real healthcare freedom in Florida. This is the last committee stop for SB 132 and with the House companion bill (HB 37 ) ready to pass the House, we are close to passing this important legislation.

SB 132 will be heard in the Senate Fiscal Policy Committee on Wednesday February 17th, 2016 at 4:00 PM

TAKE ACTION

Call and e-mail the members of the Senate Fiscal Policy Committee and tell them to support SB 132 to keep government out our healthcare decisions.

An update for me personally.

Babs,

Late last June, had a fall and dislocated my right shoulder. Four days later, my son kidnapped me (sic) and relocated me to North Carolina and established the followup medical requirements including Physical Therapy. I sold my home in Jacksonville and bought a home here. My son is a retired Marine. Obviously, I've been among the missing at FCTP meetings and events, but my heart is still with all. I did cast my last vote in Florida for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis and held my…
