Florida Senate President Don Gaetz and Senator Joe Negron, Chair of the Select Committee on Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), today announced the creation of a PPACA page of the Florida Senate’s website. The PPACA page will provide constituents an easy way to access information and provide feedback to members of the committee who are tasked with making recommendations to the entire Senate regarding how Florida should respond to the implementation of PPACA by the federal government.

“In the coming months, members of the public, health care providers, representatives from Florida’s insurance industry, and countless other stakeholders will provide valuable feedback as members of the PPACA select committee discuss, evaluate and debate Florida’s policy options under one of the most complex and far-reaching federal laws in the history of our nation,” said Gaetz. “The new portion of the Senate website was created to serve as a centralized location for interested parties to watch meetings, read bills and share their viewpoints with the committee.”

“The new page includes a detailed list of frequency asked questions and basic information on PPACA as well as a comprehensive list of decision points the committee will evaluate,” said Negron.  “Constituents have the option of leaving a comment related to an individual decision point or a general comment about how Florida should respond to the implementation of PPACA by the federal government.”

Gaetz formed the Select Committee on Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to launch a comprehensive assessment of the impact of the law on Florida.
