In a good article by Julie Patel of the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinal, the bill that is now in the Senate version is also being slammed by the CAN.They say that a Primary MD is excluded from the bill which puts the onus on the ER Md’s and going to the ER is already crazy and takes hours. This could also shift the cost of care from the Autopolicy to the Health Insurance policy which will benefit the Auto Insurance carriers and their profits.This will be interesting to see the final bill if the Legislators in Tallahassee can actually agree on doing something this session. PIP Fraud is real and is a huge problem, but Tallahassee and the Insurance commissioner have dodged this bullet for many years. Governor Rick Scott wants change and I think we all agree that change is a must, so we shall see. Please read both articles below and please call L & S Insurance for all of your Home, Auto, Flood, Business & Commercial, and even Life Insurance policies.
