Tallahassee Legislative Alert
January 13th, 2016
(1 ACTION ALERT IN THIS MESSAGE)
Specifies that direct primary care agreement does not constitute insurance & is not subject to Florida Insurance Code
Support HB 37 and Keep the government out of our healthcare decisions!
HB 37 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.
HB 37 would protect direct patient/doctor agreements from burdensome government regulations and represents a first step toward real healthcare freedom in Florida.
HB 37 will be heard in the House Finance and Tax Committee this Thursday January 14th at 1:00PM.
Call and e-mail the members of the House Finance and Tax Committee and tell them to support HB 37 to keep government out our healthcare decisions.
