In 2016, the Florida Legislature outlawed balance billing for most medical bills, which can bankrupt Florida families. However, there is still one way Floridians can be crippled by surprise medical bills – air ambulance transportation.
I’ve filed House Bill 747 to put an end to air ambulance companies being able to charge astronomical balance bills to families who are already suffering from a catastrophic incident.
We did the right thing in effectively ending balance billing to ensure Floridians aren’t sent into bankruptcy while in the hospital; now, it’s time to make sure they aren’t bankrupted by the time they get there.
