Surgical Advocacy In Florida
The Florida Chapter is the leading organization representing surgical patients and surgeons in Florida. Current legislative priorities of the Florida Chapter include:
- Scope of Practice: Ensuring scope of practice commensurate with training
- Managed Care/Prior Authorization: Reduce insurance mandates for prior authorization for the care of surgical patients with time-sensitive conditions
- Bleeding Control Kits: Achieve state funding for the purchase, placement, and maintenance of bleeding control kits in schools and public spaces

All-Florida Surgical Advocacy Days
Join us annually for All-Florida Surgical Advocacy Days. This event provides members who are new to advocacy and the legislative process an important opportunity to go to Tallahassee and see the process in action. Simultaneously, this event is used to schedule visits with legislators to educate them on surgical issues and how they can help protect patients.
