FAHP Cheers Final Passage of Legislation Ending Balance Billing by Air Ambulances House Bill 747 Adopted by Florida Senate Will Now Go to Governor DeSantis

Tallahassee, Fla. – The Florida Association of Health Plans, Inc. (FAHP) today released the following statement on behalf of its President and CEO Audrey Brown Bridges cheering the Florida Legislature for granting final passage to legislation, House Bill 747, ending balance billing by air ambulance companies.

“We thank the Florida Senate for unanimously granting final passage to legislation which will end balance billing in the State of Florida by air ambulance companies. 

“In 2016, the Florida Legislature outlawed most forms of surprise medical bills; and today, by closing a federal loophole that allowed air ambulance companies to continue to levy balance bills against Floridians, balance billing has come to a permanent end in the State of Florida.

“This is a huge step forward for Florida families that will protect them against unfair, surprise medical bills, especially when they are vulnerable following a catastrophic accident or medical event.

“We look forward to Governor DeSantis reviewing this good legislation, putting his signature to it and seeing it become law.”
