Florida Victory: You Did It!
We all won a huge victory last Friday! Your Florida Senators and Representatives passed legislation protecting you from surprise medical bills — the kind you get when an in-network hospital serves you with out-of-network labs and doctors.
This is a huge victory and this bill will be a model for other states! Please, click here thank your lawmakers!
Why is this legislation so important? It makes sure that when you go to an ‘in-network’ hospital on your insurance, you pay only in-network prices. Right now, you can get hit with huge out-of-network charges for tests, specialists and other medical care you rightly thought were covered.
This protection is especially important if you need emergency care at a hospital. Stories from Floridians like you — stories about getting crazy bills for the ER, even though they went to a hospital on their health insurance — really helped convince lawmakers to make this change.
When lawmakers do the right thing — when they stand up for you even when the special interests are lobbying to block reform — we need to give them a round of applause. Please take a moment to thank your Florida Representative and Senator.
