Florida Issues Notices Revoking Registration of Hundreds of Pain Clinics

Citing Florida pill mill legislation, state officials are issuing notices to revoke the registration of hundreds of pain management clinics in the state, according to a report by the Naples News.


Under the law, privately owned pain management clinics have to be fully owned by a physician or group of physicians who have no offenses on their medical records involving pain medications.


A newer Florida law exempted clinics that are owned by publicly held corporations from the physician-ownership requirement, but a pain clinic owned by HMA, a publicly held hospital organization, was sent a notice. HMA has challenged the notice and is taking its case before an administrative law judge.


Paul Sloan, a spokesman for the Florida Society of Pain Management Providers and owner of a pain management clinic in Venice, said the state had issued pain clinics "a couple hundred" notices on intent to revoke registration.
