Doctors, Insurers Clash on Florida Workers’ Comp Physician Dispensing Rules

Physician dispensing of medications has long been a flash point in workers’ compensation insurance, with at least 22 states regulating or restricting the practice. Florida is no exception to the controversy, and stakeholders on both sides of the issue joined renewed debate last week with testimony from injured workers, doctors, lawyers and insurance industry representatives.

“The workers’ compensation system is a challenging system to negotiate, not only for patients but also for physicians. The last thing they need is to go ahead and put another barrier in between the patient and the physician,” said Dr. David Perloff, a cardiologist in Fort Lauderdale.
