Efforts are underway in Florida to increase the maximum allowed for medical payments in workers compensation.
H.B. 161, introduced Friday, would raise the maximum reimbursement for a treating physician to 200% of the reimbursement allowed by Medicare, up from 110% currently allowed. For surgeries, the bill also proposes to increase the state’s comp fees to 200% of Medicare, up from 140%.
