Today (technically on 8/9), DCF released its Final Version of the rewrite of the rules regulating treatment providers, found within Chapter 65D-30 of the Florida Administrative Code.
A copy of the Final Rules is attached and is expected to be considered “final” as of 8/29/2019.
We want to give a shout out to attorney Benjamin Hefflinger, Esq., who also represents providers in this space, for running the attached redline comparison so you can see what has changed (and a lot has changed).
My prior commentary and highlights of the rule changes can be found in prior blog posts.
Since this change impacts how a treatment provider conducts its operations going forward, it is strongly suggested that providers work with their in-house licensing consultants/compliance officers to review the changes to make sure you are adequately informed.
This email and all blog posts are not intended to replace legal advice from a Florida licensed attorney and is being offered for informational purposes only.
