Colleagues:

If you have employees and have not addressed the elements of the new law concerning sexual harassment in the workplace, you must jump into action NOW! You are required to have a policy in place by October 9!

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, employers (including physicians) operating in New York will be subject to sweeping new laws aimed at curtailing sexual harassment in the workplace. On April 12 of this year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the New York State Budget Bill for Fiscal Year 2019 (the Executive Budget), which he termed “the nation’s most aggressive anti-sexual harassment agenda.”

The links for forms and a Q & A are listed below. They will fulfill the baseline requirements.

The model sexual harassment prevention policy, as the Cuomo administration called it, is part of legislation passed earlier this year to reduce the prevalence of discrimination and harassment in the workplace.

New York is building upon the nation’s strongest anti-sexual harassment laws by ensuring that intolerable workplace conduct is addressed swiftly and aggressively across the state. The model policy is a floor for employers to build on. There are several provisions that must be included in any policy created by employers, which are required by the new law to adopt a policy by Oct. 9. Employers have to provide a form for employees to report complaints of harassment and develop a procedure for investigating those complaints that ensures due process for all parties involved.

Employers also have to give employees information about federal and state law on workplace sexual harassment, including remedies available to victims and a statement that local laws may also apply. That information must include examples of conduct that would constitute unlawful sexual harassment.

The policy also has to clearly state to employees that sexual harassment is considered a form of employee misconduct under law and that employees or managers who take part in or knowingly allow such harassment will be disciplined. Employers also have to make clear that there will not be any retaliation against employees who either complain about sexual harassment or help an investigation into such harassment.

Employers will also have to provide sexual harassment prevention training to each of their employees by Jan. 1, 2019. According to the state, that training has to be interactive and must explain each part of the model policy, or whatever policy the employer chooses to adopt beyond the minimum standards.

MLMIC Joins Berkshire Hathaway Family of Companies
MLMIC Insurance Company (formerly known as Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company) announced the completion of its conversion from a property and casualty mutual insurance company to a property and casualty stock insurance company and its acquisition by National Indemnity Company, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

The conversion and acquisition follow a September 6, 2018 approval by the Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services and a September 14, 2018 vote of policyholders of MLMIC with policies in effect on July 14, 2016. The cash consideration resulting from the conversion will be paid out to eligible policyholders (policyholders with policies in effect from July 15, 2013 through July 14, 2016) (or their designees) as promptly as practicable.

As a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, MLMIC will have enhanced capacity and financial strength to continue to serve New York State physicians, hospitals and dentists as it has for over 40 years. MLMIC remains the largest underwriter of medical professional liability insurance in New York and continues to be a New York-focused medical malpractice writer regulated by New York State. It will be operated by the same Board of Directors and staff that have served the market well for several decades.

Per an amended and restated charter, MLMIC has changed its full name from “Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company” to “MLMIC Insurance Company.” However, it will still be known by and referred to using the familiar shorthand: “MLMIC.”

Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway’s CEO, stated, “MLMIC is a gem of a company that has protected New York’s physicians, mid-level providers, hospitals and dentists like no other for over 40 years. We are delighted to add them to the Berkshire Hathaway family and enhance their capacity to serve these and other policyholders for many years to come.”

Dr. James Reed, Chairman of MLMIC’s Board of Directors, said, “We are delighted to partner with such a fine organization. MLMIC has always had strong standing and stability within the challenging New York insurance market, and the alliance with Berkshire Hathaway will bring policyholders further peace of mind, knowing MLMIC will be able to offer them an even higher level of service and financial security.”

Governor Urged to Sign Legislation to Require Greater Transparency of Insurer Compliance with Mental Health & SUD Parity Laws
Physicians are urged to send a letter to the Governor requesting that he sign into law legislation (S.1156-C, Ortt/A.3694-C, Gunther) which directs the NY Department of Financial Services (DFS) to collect certain key data points and elements from health insurers in order to scrutinize and analyze if they are in compliance with the federal and state mental health and substance use (MH/SUD) disorder parity laws.   A letter can be sent from here.

MSSNY working together with the New York State Psychiatric Association and other specialty societies had strongly supported this legislation as it passed the Legislature nearly unanimously.  However, the bill has not as of yet been delivered to the Governor.   

If signed into law by the Governor, the information collected would be analyzed and used for the preparation of a parity compliance report that would be contained within in the annual “Consumer Guide to Health Insurers” issued by the DFS.

Although MH/SUD parity laws have been on the books for over a decade on the federal and state level, recent Attorney General settlements note that there continue to be patterns of disparity between coverage criteria imposed on MH/SUD care and treatment as compared to other covered services.  The goal of the legislation is to better ensure compliance with these laws.

US Senate Passes Opioid Response Bill; Goes to President for Consideration
The United States Senate passed a comprehensive bill to respond to the opioid abuse epidemic that had passed the United States House of Representatives last week.   The bill will now be sent to the President for his consideration.  According to a summary from the American Medical Association, the bill contains a number of important provisions, including:

  • Expands existing programs and create new programs to prevent substance use disorders and overdoses, including reauthorization of the Office of National Drug Control Policy;
  • Expands programs to treat substance use disorders, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT); partially lift (for five years) a current restriction that blocks states from spending federal Medicaid dollars on residential addiction treatment centers with more than 16 beds by allowing payments for residential substance use disorder services for up to 30 days; allows Medicare to cover MAT, including methadone, in certain setting, to treat substance use disorders;
  • Increases funding for residential treatment programs for pregnant and postpartum women; require the CDC to develop educational materials for clinicians to use with pregnant women for shared decision-making regarding pain management during pregnancy
  • Authorizes CDC grants for states and localities to improve their Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs), collect public health data, implement other evidence-based prevention strategies, encourage data sharing between states and support other prevention and research activities related to controlled substances, including education and awareness efforts;
  • Expands the use of telehealth services for Medicaid and Medicare substance use disorder treatment and requires the Attorney General to issue final regulations within a year to provide waivers to health care providers to allow them to prescribe controlled substances via telemedicine in emergency situations;
  • Provide loan repayment for substance use disorder treatment professionals, including physicians, who agree to work in mental health professional shortage areas (HPSA) or counties that have been hardest hit by drug overdoses and clarify that mental and behavioral health providers participating in the National Health Service Corps can provide care at a school or other community-based setting located in a HPSA as part of their obligated service requirements;
  • Help stop the flow of illicit opioids into the country by mail, especially synthetic fentanyl and its analogs, which are responsible for the rise in overdose deaths;
  • Provide funding to encourage research and development of new non-addictive painkillers and non-opioid drugs and treatments;
  • Requires HHS to study and report to Congress on the impact of federal and state laws and regulations that limit the length, quantity, or dosage of opioid prescriptions;
  • Requires the Department of Labor, in collaboration with CMS, to provide additional information in annual reports to Congress on mental health parity compliance.
  • Requires electronic prescribing of Schedule II, III, IV, and V controlled substances by January 2021 for prescriptions  under Medicare Part D and Medicare Advantage (MA); and
  • Requires the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to update its regulations pertaining to how prescribers authenticate prescriptions using biometrics to keep up with changing technology

Emergency Physicians Face Rising Violence, Survey Indicates
The Boston Globe (10/2) reports a survey of more than 3,500 emergency room physicians released on Tuesday reveals that nearly half of the surveyed physicians have been physically attacked while on duty, around “two-thirds of those doctors said they were assaulted in the past year,” and 71 percent “said they have witnessed an assault on the job at some point.” The survey was released by the American College of Emergency Physicians.

A second survey published Tuesday in the Annals of Emergency Medicine examined ERs in Michigan and reached similar results. That survey “found that 72 percent of ER doctors in that state reported experiencing violence in the past year, and almost 22 percent said they are constantly fearful, up from just over 9 percent in a similar survey in 2005.”


US Saw Most Flu Deaths in Over a Decade Last Winter
The New York Times (10/1) reports that “more than 80,000 Americans died of the flu in the winter of 2017-2018, the highest number in over a decade, federal health officials said last week.” Although 90 percent of those deaths were in people over age 65, “the flu also killed 180 young children and teenagers, more than in any other year since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began using its current surveillance methods.”

Last season included more than 30,000 hospitalizations and 180 pediatric deaths linked to influenza, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“It was a bad virus to begin with and the vaccine itself was not optimally protective against it,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious diseases, at the National Institutes of Health.

Last year’s flu vaccine was only 25 percent effective against H3N2, a subtype of the virus that infected thousands.


12-Item Screening Tool Can Identify Teems Likely to Smoke
A 12-item screening tool can help identify teens who are likely to start smoking in the next year, researchers report in Pediatrics.

To develop the tool, the researchers used data from over 800 children who completed questionnaires several times each year from seventh grade through high school. All were initially nonsmokers. The questionnaires assessed lifestyle factors, personality traits, and mental health, as well as whether the student had begun smoking in the prior 3 months. From this information, the researchers identified variables most predictive of smoking.

Overall, 16% of the adolescents began smoking. Twelve predictors emerged and were incorporated into the screening tool. Among them: having friends who smoke, having low self-esteem, and consuming alcohol. (See second link below to access the tool.)

The researchers write: “If the predictive ability is replicated in other settings, this tool can be used to help clinicians select who should be counseled and, because several items in the tool are amenable to prevention, how they should be counseled.”

Neurological Surgery, P.C. Announces Nation’s First Health Science Competition for High School Students
The Neurological Surgery, P.C. Health Science Competition Gives High School Students from Nassau and Suffolk Counties the Opportunity to Vie for $80,000 in Awards

Dr. Michael Brisman of Neurological Surgery, P.C., one of the New York Metropolitan region’s premier neurosurgical groups, and Dr. Ray Ann Havasy, Executive Director of the Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL), have announced the creation and launch of the Neurological Surgery, P.C. Health Science Competition. This competition is the first of its kind in the United States, and is now open to all high school students who attend school in Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island. There is a registration fee for students to enter the competition, allowing them to present projects to judges in May 2019.  For competition rules and to enter, students must apply and provide information about their project concepts to www.CSTL.org/nspc/. The competition is expected to attract a large number of entries, so student teams are encouraged to submit applications early to ensure their place in the competition.

The Neurological Surgery, P.C. Health Science Competition urges young people to leverage science to research, study and develop projects that address and solve health related challenges,” said Dr. Brisman. “Today far too few American high school graduates are pursuing careers in medical science.” The competition allows students to work alone but encourages them to work as part of a team. Students are tasked with creating a presentation that they will showcase at the competition to be held on Long Island in May 2019. Projects must be focused on human health science and finding solutions to health related issues.

Students will compete for $80,000 in awards that will go to the top teams. There will also be two non-score based awards to be presented as well. For more information about, the Neurological Surgery, P.C. Health Science Competition, competition rules and deadlines please visit www.cstl.org, call (516) 764-0045 or email Kevin Sanders at NSPC@cstl.org.

Learn more about Physician Compare and the public reporting of 2017 Quality Payment Program performance information. The Physician Compare preview period allows clinicians and groups to review their performance information before it is publicly reported on the Physician Compare website. This webinar will describe: (1) what to expect during the upcoming 30-day preview period and (2) how to navigate previewing your performance information.

There will be a question and answer session after the presentation, during which attendees will have a chance to ask the Physician Compare team questions about all things Physician Compare.

To learn more about public reporting on Physician Compare, visit our Initiative page where you can find resources and documents, including information about the 2016 performance information currently available on Physician Compare.


10-Day Deadline to Submit a MIPS Targeted Review Request

You Have 10 days to Submit a Targeted Review Request!

If you participated in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in 2017, your MIPS final score and performance feedback are available on the Quality Payment Program website. The payment adjustment you will receive in 2019 is based on this final score. A positive, negative, or neutral payment adjustment will be applied to the Medicare paid amount for covered professional services furnished under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule in 2019.

MIPS eligible clinicians or groups (along with their designated support staff or authorized third-party intermediary), including those who are subject to the APM scoring standard, may request for CMS to review their performance feedback and final score through a process called targeted review if they believe an error has been made in the 2019 payment adjustment calculation.

Please note, on September 13, 2018, CMS updated MIPS 2017 performance feedback for clinicians affected by scoring issues previously identified through the targeted review process. Additionally, to ensure that we maintain the budget neutrality required by law under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), some clinicians will see slight changes in their payment adjustment. If you believe an error exists in your 2019 MIPS payment adjustment calculation, you can request a targeted review by the extended deadline of October 15 at 8:00 PM EDT-which is just 20 days away. To learn more, view this 2017 MIPS Performance Feedback Statement.

When to Request a Targeted Review

The following are examples of circumstances in which you may wish to request a targeted review:

  • Errors or data quality issues on the measures and activities you submitted
  • Eligibility issues (e.g., you fall below the low-volume threshold and should not have received a payment adjustment)
  • Being erroneously excluded from the APM participation list and not being scored under APM scoring standard
  • Not being automatically reweighted even though you qualify for automatic reweighting due to the 2017 extreme and uncontrollable circumstances policy

This is not a comprehensive list of circumstances. CMS encourages you to contact the Quality Payment Program if you believe a targeted review of your MIPS payment adjustment (or additional MIPS payment adjustment) is warranted. We’ll help you to determine if you need to submit a targeted review request.

How to Request a Targeted Review

You can access your MIPS final score and performance feedback and request a targeted review by:

  • Going to the Quality Payment Program website
  • Logging in using your Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) credentials; these are the same EIDM credentials that allowed you to submit your MIPS data. Please refer to the EIDM User Guide for additional details.

When evaluating a targeted review request, we will generally require additional documentation to support the request. If your targeted review request is approved, CMS will update your final score and associated payment adjustment (if applicable), as soon as technically feasible. CMS will determine the amount of the upward payment adjustments after the conclusion of the targeted review submission period. Please note that targeted review decisions are final and not eligible for further review.
