::: State Legislative Update :::
THE FLORIDA CHAMBER’S PLAN FOR SMARTER HEALTHCARE COVERAGE
From the desk of Mark Wilson, President & CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce
The Florida Chamber’s Plan for Smarter Healthcare Coverage is a cost efficient, sustainable healthcare model that provides
coverage to the uninsured and eliminates the cost shift on Floridians. Our priority areas of focus include:
1. S
MARTER COVERAGE: Reduce and eliminate the cost shift on Florida’s families and small businesses by addressing the cost equation. By putting solutions in place that will reduce health care costs, and not simply alter the funding
mechanisms, we can build on Florida’s quality of life and business friendly atmosphere by covering more of Florida’s
uninsured. Additionally, personal accountability guidelines will reduce entitlements and increase a stronger commitment
by all toward better health
2. H
EALTHCARE DELIVERY SYSTEM AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL CAPACITY: Ensure Florida’s healthcare delivery
system has the capacity to respond at a high level of quality and meet the needs of Floridians.
3. LAWSUIT ABUSE REFORM – A MAJOR COST DRIVER: When it comes to lawsuit abuse, billboard trial lawyers
are exploiting Florida’s broken legal system and forcing families to pay approximately $3,400 in lawsuit abuse “taxes”
each year. The Florida Chamber believes that to attract and retain the best medical professionals, we must improve
on Florida’s bottom 10 legal climate and prevent meritless lawsuits and penalties that deter doctors from entering the
medical field.
4. W
ORKERS’ COMPENSATION – A MAJOR COST DRIVER: Ensuring Florida’s workers’ comp system is fair and not
inflated by trial lawyer tactics and other unnecessary costs will help lower the cost of doing business in Florida. The
Florida Chamber’s workers’ comp reforms have resulted in a 57 percent savings over the last 10 years. To keep rates
low, the Florida Chamber supports:
5. HEALTHCARE FRAUD – A MAJOR COST DRIVER
6. E
liminating healthcare fraud and abuse will lower total healthcare costs. The Florida Chamber supports innovative practices and technologies to combat the billions of dollars wasted each year in healthcare fraud and abuse.
7. S
TEP THERAPY AND PRIOR AUTHORIZATION: The Florida Chamber opposes current legislation that would undermine the use of prior authorization and step therapy protocols in Florida. These policies were enacted to enable patients
to receive safe and high-quality prescription drugs as well as control the usage and costs. Unless a smarter solution or a
compromise position can be reached, the financial impact of such a policy would likely dramatically increase drug costs
which, in turn would be borne by employers and families in higher premiums.
8. M
EDICAID MANAGED CARE: The Florida Chamber does not support efforts to undermine the tenets of the managed
care model – including the so-called ‘any willing provider’ provision.
If you are interested in joining the Florida Chamber Healthcare Alliance, please contact David Christian, Vice President of
Governmental Affairs, at (850) 521-1211 or [email protected]

DeLand Loses True Legal Pioneer
DeLand attorney C. Allen Watts, a pioneering force in conservation and land
use issues statewide, passed away after a brave fight against multiple system
atrophy, surrounded by his loving family.
In 1986, Mr. Watts helped found 1000 Friends of Florida, a statewide land use
planning group. The group advocates for developing sustainable communities
and saving “special places” in the state, according to its mission statement.
He served as founding city attorney for the cities of DeBary, Deltona and Palm
Coast and developed the charters of several Florida counties, as well as
selflessly volunteering his time to numerous organizations in his community
including the DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce, the DeLand Rotary, and numerous legal and land use
policy boards. The Watts family asks that all donations be made in his memory to St. Barnabas Episcopal
Church in DeLand; Halifax Hospice of Volusia-Flagler in Port Orange; or the Multiple System Atrophy
Research Fund, online at www.multiplesystematrophy.org/research
STETSON’S LIND, RYGH HONORED FOR SAND VOLLEYBALL BY ATLANTIC SUN
Stetson sand volleyball’s No. 2 pairing of
senior Maren Rygh (Tonsberg, Norway)
and sophomore Kristin Lind (Tierp,
Sweden) have been named the Atlantic Sun
Conference Pair of the Week, the league
announced Wednesday. Rygh and Lind
went a perfect 3-0 last week and helped lead
Stetson to two wins over Florida Atlantic and
ninth- ranked Florida International. The
duo earned their first victory Friday against
FAU’s Gabrielle Dischler and Beth Shoaff, 21-8, 21-17. Later in the day, Rygh and Lind collected another
two-set victory, defeating FIU’s Martyna Gluchowicz and Anna Budinska, 21-17, 22-20. On Saturday, the
duo continued to shine as they defeated second-ranked Florida State’s No. 2 seed of Stephanie Pellitteri and
Taylor Nyquist, 23-21, 25-23. The pair finished the weekend without dropping a set as they helped Stetson
to a record of 2-1 overall and a No. 10/No. 11 ranking in the national polls. It is the third career Pair of the
Week award for Rygh and the second for Lind. The Hatters will host Webber International in doubleheader
at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Michelle “Missy” Chaves, 2015 President
We have a program we partner with the
City of DeLand and the City of Orange
City on: it is “The Business Retention
Survey” Have you heard of it? Have you
been interviewed? Well now is a great
time to make a difference in your business
and the future of West Volusia! Your
feedback is very valuable to everyone: the
cities, county, and future employees. The
surveys will also influence import/export,
taxes, expansions, ordinances, and help to
bring the business partners you work with
outside the area to our community.
Here are a couple of valuable points:
•
ur mission is to establish an open line of communication with businesses and to serve
O
as an ombudsman and advocate for business with city leadership.
•
e priority is the business retention of existing companies and future business
Th
development as a key initiative for long-range growth. Several key components of
this program include reporting on projected company growth, discussing any related
operational challenges with the city itself and identifying workforce issues that can be
addressed by our partners at Career Source of Flagler/Volusia County.
•
number of amazing development projects have occurred as a result of a simple
A
retention visits. The catalyst for Frontier Communications’ IT department expansion
was a report from a Chamber business retention specialist who stopped by their offices
for a routine visit. This example is just one of many of stories of the program’s success,
both in DeLand and Orange City.
• O
ther businesses have received help in improving their import and export business
in partnership without friends at Volusia County, as well as securing new funding
opportunities, locating vendors to partner with, and qualifying for programs run by
Career Source to hire new employees without cost to the business.
•
I f you are in the gate way to DeLand or within Orange City limits and you’re
reading this column, and have not had the opportunity to participate in a survey
yet, please contact us at 386-734-4331 to schedule a business retention visit with
[email protected] today.
We hope to visit your business soon!
Sincerely the DeLand Area Chamber/Orange City Alliance President,
Michelle “Missy” Chaves
