Lobbying Money Thwarts Workers' Compensation Reforms

May 9, 2011 by Randy Zeldin

Did you every get a prescription filled by a treating doctor at that doctor's office? The doctor who wishes to become a pharmacy, is a new and growing business. In the world of Florida Workers' Compensation, this has become a new money maker too. Many authorized workers' compensation physicians prescribe medication and than fill the prescription at their office-charging the carrier for the privilege.

There was legislation proposed which would have required the physician's prescription price to the same charged at the local pharmacy. Lobbying money by physicians and related groups quashed the proposal.

Florida Workers' Compensation Carriers Earn Excess Profits

May 29, 2010 by Randy Zeldin

According to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, 16 workers' compensation carriers have been ordered to pay back "excessive profits" to policyholders. This amounts of 9.4 million dollars being returned to policy holders. Some of the insurance carriers making excessive profits, specifically AIG, were recipients of U.S. Federal taxpayer bail out funds.

Randy Zeldin, Esq., a Boca Raton workers' compensation attorney, asks Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty to determine the source of the "excessive profits." Drastic changes in the Florida workers' compensation law, likely have translated skimpier benefits to injured workers as the source of fatter profits for the insurance industry. Randy Zeldin, Esq., with office in West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton, further suggest that Gov. Charlie Crist scrutinize the origin of excessive insurance profits, in a time of great recession for South Florida working people.
