Unlike in many states, Florida businesses usually need general business licenses at the state, county and city levels. Additionally, Floridians can expect significant numbers of licenses and permits at the state and county levels, while cities usually minimally regulate. Florida has particularly extensive healthcare and food licensing and includes regulation over specialties such as kosher foods.
In Florida, medical Practices are among the simplest of healthcare business. However, like any facility that gives medical treatment, states and local governments care that patients get safe, clean treatment. Licenses are often required not only for practices themselves, but for medical waste disposal.
