Legislature Amends Florida's Patient's Bill of Rights Statute to Provide for Primary Care Providers

Fla. Stat. § 381.026 has been amended to define "Primary Care Provider" and to provide requirements for their publishing of a schedule of charges, should a primary care provider choose to publish one.

Among the requirements of the posted schedule of charges are requirements as to where it must be posted, how big it must be, and what it must include. As an incentive to providing a schedule of charges, the amendments provide for a one licensure term exemption from continuing education requirements and licensure renewal fees.
