The Florida Hospital Association is asking current and potential patients to send questions about bills and medical procedures directly to the group, after 85 people submitted price-gouging complaints to the state’s Commission on Healthcare and Hospital Funding, Politico reports.

The complaints stem from Gov. Rick Scott’s request that residents email stories to the commission’s website. In response, FHA responded with its own email:, according to Politico.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
