12/29/17 – Floridians may no longer need health insurance for office visits, basic lab work and other routine medical costs under a bill that looks likely to pass when the Florida Legislature begins its session Jan. 9. The bill would allow doctors to offer patients basic health care in return for a monthly fee, similar to the concierge medical services offered to wealthy individuals.
