Florida has until 2014 to implement some of the provisions in the Federal Affordable Care Act. Governor Rick Scott says the state won’t do it, but some Florida lawmakers say it’s too early to start jumping to conclusions.
The Florida Supreme Court upheld most of the Federal Affordable Care Act, also called the healthcare overhaul law. But it left a few pieces up to the states, and Florida Governor Rick Scott said he’s not implementing anything he can avoid.
“It’s very disappointing what the Supreme Court did. This is going to be devastating for patients," Scott said.
