“This Act shall make it the policy of the State of Florida to ensure that employees who work in Florida facilities have the right to full and prompt health care coverage for medical care, including dental, vision, and prescription drugs, at no cost to the employee”.
This Act will not only give employees health care, but it will also allow them to get medical care for free (no deductibles, copayments, or co-insurance requirements). This is in addition to the “no cost to the employee” policy that our own bill introduced back in 2002.
What happens when you have to pay for a doctor’s visit or prescription that you don’t have coverage for? What happens if you have insurance but not the right to have the medical care you need? This is why the FLA is a powerful and important law. The bill passed the Florida House and Senate unanimously in May. It is the fifth of Florida’s five state bills that are “The Law.
Floridas new law requires that all employers have an Employee Health Plan. The FLA is the first state to require coverage for the cost of medical services. It is a little scary that this is one of the first states to do this, but I think it will eventually become more mainstream.
This is a great bill because it will help people who get sick pay for health care. The FLA does that by using a federal insurance regulation to make sure employers are required to pay for coverage in their employee health plan. It also gives Floridas employees the right to know how their employer pays for medical expenses. So even if you don’t have a health care plan, you have the right to be able to see your doctor.
While it may be a bit easier to get health care for people who cant afford it, there are still some people who cannot get insurance because they cant afford it. I think this is a good thing, but it will be hard for people to get coverage. The FLA will also help people who can afford health care have the money to pay for it.
I’m sure you all have gotten at least a little bit confused but what exactly are the FLA and how does it work? I’ll try to explain it to you as simply as possible. The FLA was passed by the Florida Legislature back in 1989, and it has been on the books since then. Every employer in Florida that has an employee with more than a certain amount of coverage must pay for their employees health care expenses.
The FLA is about as simple as it gets, but it’s also a lot more complicated than that. For the record, the FLA requires employers to pay for 90% of health care expenses for their employees. If they don’t, they get sued. For employees who have more than 90% coverage (and those who don’t have a choice) they have to be able to pay for their health care. But employers can’t say this is a tax.
Yes, it is a tax that you are supposed to have to pay. But the FLA, in its current form, is pretty restrictive. An employer can only be sued if a health care provider charges you more than the FLA limits. A better way to understand is that a worker with more than 90 coverage is required to pay for their own health care expenses, but an employee with less than 90 coverage is not.
If an employee with more than 90 coverage is required to pay for their own health care, then the FLA is a tax. If a worker with less than 90 coverage is not required to pay for their own health care, then the FLA is simply a cap on how much they can be taxed. It is a cap that is not enforced.
