Deadline: Tell Florida Lawmakers to Finish the Job!
Thanks to you, our Florida supporters, we sent a strong message to state lawmakers: end unfair surprise medical billing in Florida! So many of you went the extra mile and called your Senators demanding they pass a clean bill protecting you from medical bill shock. Last week, the Florida House and Senate voted for protections against surprise medical bills, but it’s crunch time now. In this final stretch of the legislative session in Florida, we need your help to make sure Florida lawmakers know we expect them to get the job done and make a final vote protecting all Floridians from shocking medical bills. Email your Florida lawmakers right now before it’s too late!
Special interests are working hard to gut this good legislation. If they succeed, that means you get stuck with painful surprise medical bills that cost you time, money, and stress. Don’t let them kill your chance to win surprise medical bill protections.
Your stories of huge medical bills helped us get this far in the Florida Legislature. And several of your stories were highlighted in the local news. Our partner in the fight–Florida CHAIN–made sure that your voices were represented in the media and at the Florida Capitol. The House and Senate have already voted on their own bills, but the legislation needs a final vote before it gets sent to Governor Rick Scott for signature.
