Amidst the flurry of 74 bills signed into law by Florida Governor Rick Scott on March 23 was HB37 – legislation to protect the Direct Primary Care model of health care from insurance regulators.
Lee Gross, M.D. was among grassroots leaders fighting for years and multiple legislative sessions to protect Direct Primary Care and the doctor/patient relationship.
Dr. Gross released this statement upon enactment,
“Today, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed HB37 in support of Direct Primary Care.
We would like to thank all of the good people that worked hard so that this important bill could allow patients and doctors to free themselves from the shackles of our broken health care system.
These are precisely the bold steps that states will need to take in order to begin to restore health care in America.
We would like to thank the dedicated bill sponsors, Rep. Danny Burgess and Sen. Tom Lee, for their leadership.”
