Hospitals fighting Florida Workers’ Compensation rule changes

Post on behalf of Thomas J. Ueberschaer PA on Tuesday September 11, 2012

Saying that state rule changes could mean a 10% decline in reimbursement for outpatient services, the Florida Hospital Association is taking its case to court. The Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Workers’ Compensation published a new set of proposed rule changes in July on state reimbursement rates for hospitals covering outpatient treatment for people under workers’ comp insurance. The association has filed a legal challenge with Florida Division of Administrative Hearings to stop a rule change by the state’s financial services division. The hospital association calls the changes “radical” and is asking a hearing judge to block them taking effect.
