The 2023 Legislative Session will go down in the state’s history books as one of the most impactful. While there were many controversial issues addressed, the Florida Medical Association remained focused in its mission: helping physicians practice medicine. Most notably, the FMA made tremendous strides in addressing the physician workforce shortage by increasing physician pay, creating a new graduate medical education program, and increasing the funding for medical student loan reimbursement. These initiatives aim to secure a brighter future for the practice of medicine in Florida, where quality of care is never compromised.
The Florida Legislative Session concluded on Friday, May 5th, at 11:00 a.m. Your FMA team of lobbyists tracked 312 bills and numerous amendments that either directly or indirectly concerned the practice of medicine in Florida. The following is a summary of key legislative issues that the FMA worked on during session to help our members practice medicine.
