The bill also would require direct primary-care contracts to be in writing and to describe the scope of services that would be covered. The bill doesn’t limit how much the monthly charges can be, but it would prevent providers who collect direct-primary care money from billing insurance companies. But the analysis said “there is uncertainty about whether the (office) might assert such authority in the future.” If that were to occur, the direct primary care arrangements could be subject to the insurance premium tax that Florida levies on insurance policies. In addition, direct primary-care arrangements could also be subjected to all other regulations, including reserve requirements.

(NSF) – A bill that would allow physicians, chiropractors and group practices to sign “direct primary-care” agreements with patients without running amok of Florida’s insurance laws is on its way to Gov. Rick Scott. The Senate voted unanimously Thursday to approve the measure (HB 37), sponsored by Rep. Danny Burgess, R-Zephyrhills, and Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa. The House passed the bill in January by a 97-10 vote.
