Temporary Injunction Entered Against Portions of the New Florida PIP Law Stayed Pending Appeal

On March 20, 2013 we advised of the temporary injunction that had been entered enjoining those sections of Florida’s new Personal Injury Protection “PIP” law, Chapter 2012-197, Laws of Florida (2012 PIP Act) “which require a finding of an ‘Emergency Medical Condition as a prerequisite for payment of PIP benefits or that prohibit payments for services provided by acupuncturists, chiropractors, and massage therapists.”
Unfortunately the injunction has been stayed by Florida’s Office of Insurance Regulation having quickly filed an appeal of this decision on Thursday, March 21, 2013 with the First District Court of Appeal. What this means is that the injunction preventing the implementation of those two sections of the new PIP law will not go into effect at least while the appellate court decides whether or not the trial court correctly entered the injunction. Florida Consumers are hoping that the appellate court upholds the injunction.
