Texas is #12, Florida and Missouri Still Possible

Texas became the 12 state to enact DPC legislation on May 28, 2015.  The law is effective immediately and offers helpful protections to Texas DPC docs.  The "scope" provision (section 5) of the legislation was well written and the critical "not insurance" protections were present, but their definitions of "direct care" and "direct primary care" were ambiguous and unhelpful when compared to other state and federal legislation.

The Missouri governor continues to ponder whether he should sign DPC legislation that was passed by both the House and Senate on May 6, 2015.  I have no idea what he is waiting on.

A Florida special house session has been convened and we might have good news about proposed DPC legislation later this month.  The bill appears to have broad support, so whether it passes will likely depend on the level of attention it receives on the busy House calendar.
