Monday, April 29, 2019, the Florida House and Senate came to agreement on a new Telehealth bill (HB 23). If signed by Governor DeSantis, the bill will become effective July 1, 2019.
The bill creates two new statutes: Section 456.47 and Section 627.42396, and amends Section 641.31.
Section 456.47 sets forth the standards of practice for telehealth providers, authorizes the use of telehealth encounters for patient evaluations, and allows certain providers to prescribe certain controlled substances in limited circumstances. The bill also allows non-physician providers to use telehealth without being deemed to be practicing medicine without a license. Further, the bill sets forth record keeping requirements and registration for out-of-state telehealth providers. It authorizes the Department of Health to establish rules for telehealth, including exemptions from registration requirements, and to set up disciplinary action against telehealth providers that violate the law or rules.
Florida medical attorneys are experienced in handling a variety of areas of the law. However, the advantage of working with a firm is that you know the lawyer that is assigned to you specializes in the area you need assistance with. For example, when you contact a firm, you will talk directly with a Medicare fraud attorney in Florida if that’s what you need. This person has been handling these types of cases for years and they are equipped to give you the best possible legal advice. Furthermore, they can assist you in making sure that everything you’re currently doing is being handled the right way and that you are running your business by the book.
Why is it so important to speak with a Medicare fraud attorney about potential Medicare fraud cases? One of the main reasons is because of your online reputation. Patients know that information is available online and they can research a business well before they even contact them. If a patient goes online and sees that you’ve been dealing with these matters, it may keep them from signing up with you. That’s why you need medical attorneys to work with you and make sure things are being handled the right way.
The Florida Healthcare Law Firm has a great team of medical attorneys who are available to assist you and also contribute to our monthly blogs and webinars.

A Florida medical staff lawyer is someone who can help you with dozens of legal matters over the course of several years. The smart thing to do if you own a medical business is to work with an attorney early and often to make sure that you are getting the best advisement and handling everything the right way. For example, if you are not sure if you are getting the right licenses, asking the right questions when hiring people, marketing the right way or something else, you may be making a mistake. The only way to know that you are not missing something or doing something incorrectly is by working with a Florida managed care lawyer.
So, what about the information you find online for free? Isn’t that just as good as hiring a medical staff lawyer? Actually, no it’s not and the reason is because you do not know if it applies to you or not, if it applies to your state or situation and you also do not know if it is accurate and current. What if the information is correct but it no longer applies because the law was changed eight months ago? This is something you cannot know unless you are actually speaking with a managed care lawyer.
The Florida Healthcare Law Firm will make sure that you work with the best medical staff lawyer in your area of need, someone with years of experience who can make sure that you are getting proper advisement and that your business is in good hands.

The first thing you have to understand about a payer audit recoupment or anything else is that you need a lawyer to assist you. Even if you feel you are in the right and that this is an easy matter to deal with, you do not want anything to go wrong. This isn’t just about protecting your business; it’s about protecting your brand and reputation. Whenever a patient needs a service like DME telemedicine, they are going to research the business that is providing this service. If they find information like negative reviews and that the business has gone through ZPIC audits for home health, it’s not going to look good. Hire an attorney if you need assistance with:
Payer audit recoupment: Whenever you are facing legal issues like audits, filing for new licenses or anything else, it’s important that you take some time to speak with a medical lawyer. The reason is because they will understand what needs to be done in this process as well as how to move forward and get the best possible outcome out of these proceedings. You do not want to rely on information found online, especially if you are not sure how to move forward. Online speculation is not a substitute for sound legal advisement and it’s important that you take the time to find the best attorney to represent you in this, and other matters.
DME telemedicine: Medical businesses around the country are looking for new and innovative options to increase revenue, either with their existing patients, or with new ones. Imagine a doctor is able to close his practice at 5 pm and then two of his nurses are able to remain working until 8 pm as they communicate with patients around the country via the phone or video chat? It’s a great opportunity for everyone to increase their value and earn extra income, but there are several rules and regulations that must be followed.
ZPIC audits home health: If you find yourself with this issue, then it’s important that you immediately seek the counsel of an experienced attorney. The longer you wait, the more you are at a disadvantage. Do not hesitate and especially do not try to get important legal answers just by looking online. This is the time you need to speak with a lawyer and know exactly what your options are.

One of the reasons for such an interest in commission based marketing compensation in Florida is because of the influx of new opportunities including DMEPOS, telehealth, medical marijuana, CBD and other options. Telehealth, for example, gives doctors a unique opportunity to showcase a new service to people around the country. After normal business hours, patients who need fast medical advice can call or video conference a medical professional and get a consultation and perhaps even a prescription filled out to a local pharmacy. This is a big service that can lead to new revenue for medical businesses. However, certain rules have to be followed when it comes to marketing it.
