MPP Infusion Centers® Announces Great News for Florida Blue Subscribers

MPP Infusion Centers®, a Joint Commission-accredited ambulatory infusion services provider, announced today that all MPP Florida locations, effective August 1st, are fully contracted with Florida Blue.  MPP Infusion Centers® located in Jacksonville, Orlando, Kissimmee and Port St. Lucie can provide services to Florida Blue subscribers on an In-Network basis for all PPO, HMO and Medicare Advantage plans. 

Utilization of specialty infusion biologic medications prescribed to treat chronic, complex diseases including osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, gout, asthma, and other autoimmune disorders is on the rise.  Central to MPP’s mission to meet the growing demand for infusion drug therapy is to provide a high quality, unparalleled patient experience in the most cost-effective location.  MPP President and Founder Ellen Davis says, “our infusion centers intentionally focus on offering a very different atmosphere from a hospital or cancer center by providing access to safe, convenient, comfortable treatment separate from acutely ill patients; an important distinction for patients managing chronic diseases in an out-patient environment requiring very little non-essential interaction with others.”

“Partnering with Florida Blue, in our Florida markets, allows us to provide expanded access to care for thousands of Florida residents that trust Florida Blue for health insurance benefits,” stated Mrs. Davis. “We could not be happier to bring our customized infusion services to these communities and look forward to expanding into additional regions with Florida Blue.”

MPP Infusion Centers® was founded over 10 years ago by Ellen Davis, a long-time infusion patient, who had very few treatment options when beginning therapy. MPP Infusion Centers®, currently provides industry-leading care in Florida, Colorado and Texas, with additional states in their development pipeline.

Local County Medical Societies Unify Under Single Organization

ORLANDO – The Orange County Medical Society, Inc. (OCMS) and Seminole County Medical Society (SCMS) are pleased to announce their unification creating a singular physician organization in Central Florida, the Physicians Society of Central Florida (PSCF) that will represent the interests of physicians practicing in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties.
“This will be remembered as an historic moment for organized medicine in the region with the coming together of these two organizations that have such a long and proud history. It is bold move but also an obvious evolution as we strive to meet the needs of our physician members throughout this growing region”, noted Ryan Hall, M.D., President of the Seminole County Medical Society.

Dr. Darin Wolfe, President of the Orange County Medical Society added, “The goals of this merger are to provide physicians with a unified vision and strategic advantage as we address the needs of our members and the future of our profession. The merger will provide us with unprecedented focus on regional politics, regional health care needs, practice management tools and resources, and a singular focus on steadfastly supporting the interests of physicians throughout this community.”

The Orange County Medical Society was founded in 1906 while the Seminole County Medical Society was founded in 1927. The Osceola County Medical Society has been inactive in recent years.

Dr. Darin Wolfe has been elected as the initial President of the Physicians Society of Central Florida. The Board of Directors for the new organization will be comprised of existing physician leaders from Orange and Seminole County as well as Deborah German, M.D., Dean of the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, and Joan Meek, M.D., M.S., Dean of the Florida State University College of Medicine. The Board of Directors also includes regional representatives and local Medical Students and Residents.

Both leaders stressed that while the name of the associations are going to change, the mission of the new organization will remain to promote access to quality medicine, a competitive marketplace to promote quality and lower costs, and to advance the practice of medicine in our community. The organizations will merge their charitable efforts under the Physicians Society of Central Florida Foundation and will expand their Political Action Committee to include a focus on candidates for office throughout the region.
