Florida State Legislative session recap

from FSP

As of April 28, 2015, the Florida Legislature adjourned sine die in a historic way. Due to a bitter impasse between House Republicans and the Senate over Medicaid expansion, the House packed up their bags and went home three days early before the official May 1 adjournment. This was an unprecedented and historic end to a contentious session. As a result of the surprise shut-down, every piece of legislation relating to healthcare, with the exception of a clinical laboratory bill that we amended and supported (see SB 738), failed passage. We worked hard on so many issues for over six months including prohibition against balance billing, a potential fix to the Beacon/United issue, telemedicine, prohibiting reimbursement tied to a Medicare standard, and many others. more
