Health Care Clinic Act Amended To Add the Requirement that Clinics Publish a Schedule of Charges for Medical Services Offered to Patients

Fla. Stat. § 400.9935, the Clinic Responsibilities statute has been amended to add the responsibility that a clinic publish a schedule of charges for the services offered to patients that include prices charged to uninsured persons, list at least the 50 most frequently provided services, and that it be posted in a conspicuous place in the reception area of the clinic.

The amendments also provide that if a clinic is applying for a certificate of exemption, they must still publish and maintain a schedule of charges that meet all of the requirements.

A clinic that does not post this schedule of charges is liable for a fine of up to $1,000 every day until the schedule is posted.
