Q:
What is a “determination of the existence of an emergency or non-emergency condition” under Florida’s new Personal Injury Protection law and who makes that determination?

A:
Essentially, it is a medical judgment made by specific medical professions, including MDs, DOs, ARNOs, physician assistants, and hospital owned facilities. Notably, although chiropractic physicians are permitted to make a determination of a non-emergency medical condition, they are not permitted to make a determination of emergency medical treatment.
