Florida State Massage Therapy Association Asks Governor Rick Scott to Veto New PIP Law

This week the Florida State Massage Therapy Association sent a request to Governor Rick Scott to veto the recently amended Florida PIP law. In their letter the FSMTA addresses some of their concerns including:

Patients in Emergency Rooms – with the new mandate, Emergency Rooms will see an unnecessary increase at their facilities – potentially preventing those with “real” emergencies due to the influx of automobile accident patients.

Type of care – massage therapy is a non-pharmaceutical approach to health and healing. Based on the mandate, this option does not appear to be considered.

The full letter is available here.
