Health Law Section Adopts Legislative Position and Advocates for Revisions to Patient Brokering Act
As many Section members are aware, the Florida Patient Brokering Act was recently amended in such a manner which may have inadvertently raised legal issues as to certain business and contractual arrangements which have been generally accepted as the norm in Florida and upon which health law attorneys frequently render advice on. In line with the Section’s goal of advocating on behalf of the common interests of the members, the Health Law Section has chosen to actively advocate in support of legislation to provide the clarity and protection required by health law attorneys to continue rendering effective legal advice to clients on the Patient Brokering Act.
On September 13, 2019, the Health Law Section held The Master Class: Legal Issues with Mental Health and Substance Abuse in Orlando at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek hotel.
