Florida Chamber-Backed Telehealth Bill Passes Key Senate Committee

On January 16, the Florida Senate Banking and Insurance Committee passed a bill which would embrace cost-saving adaptations to Florida’s healthcare system.

SB 280, a Florida Chamber-backed bill sponsored by Senator Aaron Bean would establish a standard of care for telehealth providers and encourage health insurance programs to offer insurance plans that include telehealth coverage.

A value-based healthcare system focused on outcomes is an important component in the overall economic health of Florida. Embracing healthcare solutions like telehealth, will help lower the cost of living in Florida by reducing medical costs for all Floridians. The Florida Chamber will continue to work to promote proactive and innovative policies that improve access to care.

Florida Chamber Continues to Champion Telehealth Initiatives

Florida is the third largest state in the nation. By 2030, six million new residents will call Florida home. It is imperative that the business community work together to keep costs low and boost the economic prosperity of our state. The Florida Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to getting healthcare coverage right.

Legislation covering a variety of healthcare policies, including telehealth, was heard in the House Health Quality Subcommittee this week. Providing healthcare to those six million new residents our state is expecting will require proactive and innovative policies such as telehealth. The Florida Chamber continues to support the increased use of, and accessibility to, telehealth services in our state.

At the Florida Chamber, our Healthcare Partnership is bringing together job creators, healthcare providers and payers, and industry leaders who are laser-focused on pioneering change that will provide better patient outcomes while lowering costs. Our Healthcare Partnership members are diligently working to provide market-based, public policy solutions that address the rising cost shift of healthcare in Florida.
