Things to Watch out for in the Florida 2016 Legislative Session: Limitations in Medical Payments (Limp) – Hurts Doctors and Hurts You as a Victim
2015 HB 1199 and SB 1240 which did not survive committee, sought to take away the jury’s ability to hear evidence of a doctor’s or hospital’s full charges for treatment rendered to an individual who was harmed due to the negligence of another. Individuals are entitled to have the highest quality of care and if that individual is unable to recover for unpaid medical bills, the doctor and their patient are now forced into adversaries.
This type of proposed legislation would contribute to overcrowding the court system and allow wrongdoers to benefit by skirting what would and should be their financial responsibility.
