Personal Injury Protection Reform Bill’s Provider Payment Glitch Will Be Addressed, Florida Agency for Health Care Administration Memo Advises

May 9, 2012


As part of a collective effort to address a glitch in the recently enacted Personal Injury Protection (“PIP”) insurance reform bill, CS/CS/HB 119, the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration issued a memo yesterday, May 8, 2012, in which it outlined its intention to eliminate a six-month gap in PIP provider eligibility for PIP reimbursement.

Due to a glitch in the effective date provisions of the bill, certain providers, including clinics wholly owned by doctors, hospitals, chiropractors, medical schools and dentists, would have lost their eligibility on July 1, 2012—although the legislation would have restored it by January 1, 2013.

A copy of the memo is attached for review.
