For Immediate Release

MSSNY APPLAUDS NYS LEADERSHIP FOR SUPPORTING PATIENT ACCESS TO CARE

Statement attributable to:
Thomas Madejski, MD
President, Medical Society of the State of New York

“The physician community thanks the New York State Senate and Assembly leadership for rejecting, in their respective “one-House” Budgets, a number of proposals contained in the Executive Budget that could adversely impact patient access to needed care and treatment.  The Senate and Assembly Budgets would prevent a huge proposed cut to physicians who treat patients covered by both Medicare and Medicaid—the elderly and the poor.
“Also, both houses importantly rejected a proposal that would have imposed new prior authorization requirements on physicians and other care providers who want to assure their Medicaid patients can obtain the medications they need. If enacted, these measures would undoubtedly lead to increased care delays for our state’s most vulnerable patients.
“We look forward to continued, productive discussions with legislators, the executive and staff in order to enact a State Budget that helps patients to obtain the care they need from the physician of their choice.”

Colleagues:

MSSNY and our County Societies, along with a coalition of other interested groups have been successful in slowing the expansion of marijuana availability in New York State.  I was told when I came into the Presidency that marijuana was a done deal.  MSSNY and the AMA have excellent policy on a rational approach to dealing with marijuana.

Raising Questions

 I asked our County leaders to attend listening sessions across the state this past spring and summer. We often were alone voice against anecdotal reports of the benefit with medicinal and recreational use.  Through those efforts, we have been successful in raising significant questions about the effect of legalization on overall use and significant harms with regards to impaired driving and accidents, creation and worsening of severe mental health issues, and negative impacts on developing minds.  I am very sympathetic to our governmental leaders who are concerned about the effects of legalization in Massachusetts and Canada and the effect on our citizens and potential lost tax revenue.  Having said that, I believe it would be pennywise and pound foolish to follow a path to legalization based on the emerging harms associated with increased use of marijuana in states that have legalized non medicinal use.

Other States Concerned

Our colleagues in New Jersey face similar issues and their situation is accelerating. Seeing the rush by Big Marijuana and Big Tobacco to push their product before it has appropriate vetting,

I have discussed coordinating a campaign to stop the expansion until we have sufficient data on the efficacy and long term implications of use for medicinal marijuana. I have had discussions with leaders from Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey about coordinating campaigns to slow the descent towards marijuana induced psychosis. They are reviewing policy and we hope to expand our voice by adding additional physician and community groups who share our concerns.  I look forward to updating you on developments as they occur.

In addition, we have been working proactively with many groups who raised similar concerns, including county health officials, PTAs, school administrators, police, and various think tanks ( i.e. SAM, the Schuyler Center.)

I am quite thankful for the activities of our County Medical Societies in this battle for public health and improvement in the practice of medicine. I am arranging a meeting of the County Presidents and their Executive Staffs with MSSNY to enlist them again in reaching out to their legislators and other decision makers at home to promote the MSSNY prescription for the proper use of marijuana in New York State.

Our three major points are:

  1. To review and address issues with criminal justice, disparate enforcement, and stigmatization associated with low level users.
  2. To reschedule marijuana to Schedule II based on some promising, but still largely anecdotal reports on its utility for certain conditions. If rescheduling can be attained, well-funded research can educate us as to the utility and harms of this complicated product.
  3. To oppose further expansion of non-medical use until the effects of long term use are clarified, States that have legalized should collect data on long term efficacy and side effects. States with legalization can provide further data that develops over the next few years.

You can help. Send a letter to your representatives here. Encourage your colleagues and staff who share our concerns to do likewise.

Assembly and Senate Advance Their Own Budget Proposals-Intense Budget Negotiations Underway
This week, the New York State Senate and Assembly each passed their respective “one-House” Budget proposals in response to the Governor’s Executive Budget proposal released in January, and amended in February.  They will now enter a period of intense negotiations to achieve an agreed upon final Budget by April 1, the start of New York’s fiscal year.  Here is a brief summary of the actions taken on key items of concern to physicians and patients that were proposed in the Governor’s Budget, both positive and negative.

MEDICAID – Both the Assembly and Senate rejected the proposed $80/patient Medicaid cut for deductibles for patients covered by Medicare and Medicaid.  Moreover, the Assembly and Senate both rejected the 0.8% across the Board Medicaid payment cut.

Both the Assembly and Senate also rejected the proposed repeal of the “prescriber prevails” protections for prescriptions for patients covered by Medicaid.  The Assembly also included a proposal to have a uniform formulary for Medicaid prescriptions, including for Medicaid Managed Care plans, keeping prescriber prevails protections.

MSSNY President Dr. Thomas Madejski issued a statement praising the Assembly and Senate for taking these actions.  Read his statement here.

Please click here to send a letter to your legislators and the Governor urging that they continue the fight to prevent these cuts.

LEGALIZING RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA – The Assembly and Senate did not include the Governor’s proposal to legalize “adult use” or recreational marijuana in its Budgets, though leadership in both Houses have publicly stated their desire to continue working with the Governor on legislation to enable such use.  Several county Executives announced this week that they would seek to opt their counties out of permitting recreational marijuana use if it is to be legalized in New York.

Please urge your legislators to continue to oppose so-called “adult use” marijuana here.

EXCESS – Both the Assembly and Senate supported the continued historical funding amount for the Excess Medical Malpractice Insurance Program that had been proposed in the Governor’s Budget.

PBMs – The Senate accepted the Governor’s recommendation to license PBMs, and included provisions to enhance penalties for non-compliance.  The Assembly rejected the provision, indicating that it will pursue “stand alone” legislation to regulate PBMs in New York State.

PUBLIC HEALTH – The Senate accepted the Governor’s recommendation to raise the age of tobacco/e-cigarette sales from 18-21 that was supported by MSSNY. The Assembly did not, but because they already passed “stand-alone” legislation on this issue (A.558, Rosenthal).

The Senate accepted the Governor’s recommendation to create a Maternal Mortality Review Board that was supported by MSSNY.  The Assembly did not, but could likely pass their own legislation (both the Assembly and Senate have legislation on the floor of each of their respective Houses-A.3276, Joyner/S.1819, Rivera).

The Senate accepted the Governor’s proposal to remove prior authorization requirements for Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) that was supported by MSSNY and the AMA.  The Assembly took it out, but is pursuing their own legislation (see related article).

WORKERS’ COMP – The Assembly rejected the Governor’s proposal to significantly expand the use of non-physician use in Workers’ Compensation that has been opposed by MSSNY (due to the lack of provisions regarding how such practitioners would coordinate with physicians to manage the patients’ care and complete the necessary paperwork).  However, the Senate accepted the approach.

Please urge your legislators to continue to oppose this proposal here                 (DIVISION OF GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS)


Assembly Advances Legislation to Ensure Better Care for Those Suffering from Mental Health and Substance Abuse Disorders
The Assembly Insurance Committee has advanced two bills that would help to ensure availability of better treatment for mental health and substance abuse disorders. Both have moved on to the Codes Committee for review.

Assemblymember Dan Quart’s A.2904 would prohibit certain insurance policies from requiring prior authorization for buprenorphine products, methadone and long acting injectable naltrexone for detoxification or maintenance treatment of substance use disorders. This bill would allow physicians to better care for those suffering from opioid addiction via easing restrictions on medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Assemblymember Aileen Gunther’s A.6186A would require insurers and health plans to submit data to the Department of Financial Services which would be used to measure compliance with federal and state mental health and substance abuse parity laws. It provides clarifications to the law enacted last year supported by MSSNY.  While parity laws currently exist both federally and at the state level, in the past few years the NYS Attorney General has reached multiple settlements for noncompliance with behavioral health companies and subcontractors. Greater data collection is clearly needed for proactive monitoring of denial rates and network adequacy, among other standards.

MSSNY supports these bills as they would increase patient access to needed medication and treatment by eliminating barriers and would ensure that treatment may be provided in a timelier manner.  (AVELLA)

Senator Rivera Introduces Bill to Exempt Nursing Homes from E-prescription Requirement
Senator Gustavo Rivera’s bill S.4183 has passed through the Senate Health Committee and is now eligible for a vote in the Senate. The bill is a companion of Assembly bill A.1034-A which passed the Assembly on February 28. If enacted, this legislation would exempt nursing homes’ prescription of oral medication from the state requirement that all prescriptions be electronically submitted. This bill is of particular interest to MSSNY’s Long-Term Care subcommittee.

Nursing homes present unique circumstances that make compliance with the current e-prescription mandate impractical and this legislation would allow for time to rectify the situation. Physicians are not physically present 24 hours a day, so RNs are allowed to take orders for medication safely and without delay for the residents who need them. The physician would then sign the oral order within 48 hours. This legislation would extend to March 2021 an already existing exemption established by the NYS Department of Health that is due to expire later this year. (AVELLA)


Expedited Partner Therapy Nears Passage
Legislation passed the Senate this week to allow physicians to prescribe antibiotics to the partner of an individual diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) without examining the partner.  It has also advanced to the Assembly calendar. Senator Gustavo Rivera’s S.1799 and Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte’s A.2998, which is supported by MSSNY, would expand expedited partner therapy from Chlamydia to include other STIs. Expedited partner therapy helps physicians and other health care providers to decrease rates of STI.  While it is not intended to replace face to face interaction with a health care provider, it can help patients who otherwise would not reach out for treatment.    (AVELLA)    


Governor Releases Report on Maternal Mortality
Governor Andrew Cuomo released a report on the status of maternal mortality in NYS this week.  According to the report, “In NYS, the maternal mortality rate for black women was 51.6 deaths per 100,000 live births, compared to 15.9 deaths per 100,000 live births for white women in 2014-2016. Black women are approximately three times more likely to die than white women”.  The task force recommendations include:

  • Establish a statewide maternal mortality board
  • Design and implement a training program for hospitals on implicit racial bias
  • Create Competency-Based Curricula for Providers as well as Medical and Nursing Schools
  • Establish an Educational Loan Forgiveness Program for Providers who are Underrepresented in Medicine (URIM) and who Intend to Practice Women’s Health Care Services
  • Convene Statewide Expert Work Group to Optimize Postpartum Care in NYS
  • Promote Universal Birth Preparedness and Postpartum Continuity of Care

Update on ZocDoc Pricing Change
As you are aware, MSSNY and its General Counsel are still awaiting clarification from the DOH on a variety of issues being proposed by ZocDoc. We anticipate getting the clarification prior to the ZocDoc roll out in April. MSSNY will advise our members of any changes as we get closer to the implementation date.


Hospitals, Insurers Ready To Resist Medical Service Price Disclosure Mandate
The Wall Street Journal (3/11) reports that hospitals and insurers plan to argue against a Trump Administration proposal that may mandate the public disclosure of medical services’ negotiated prices. Healthcare industry groups are questioning the government’s legal authority to require public disclosure, and asserting that such a requirement would be too complex to carry out.


Fidelis Remains Dominant in New York’s Individual Insurance Market
Fidelis Care maintained its dominance in the state’s individual insurance marketplace, with its market share holding steady in the first open enrollment cycle since it was bought by Centene. Nearly 40 percent of New Yorkers purchasing an individual plan chose Fidelis — virtually unchanged from last year, according to state data released today. The insurer operates in 56 counties, far more than any of its competitors. (Politico 3/15)

Sexual Harassment Train the Trainer FREE Webinar on March 20 at 12
March 20, 2019
12:00pm-1:00pm

REGISTER HERE

The issue of sexual harassment in the workplace has been the center of a staggering amount of media attention and of a surge in litigation activity. Consistent with this momentum, New York State recently mandated that all employers are required to have a sexual harassment policy containing specified criteria in place by October 9, 2018, and to conduct sexual harassment prevention training by October 2019. (New York City requirements are slated to take effect in April 2019.)

The issue of sexual harassment takes on particular significance for the healthcare industry, because there is an established nexus between disruptive behavior, which includes sexual harassment, and adverse patient outcomes and medical errors.

The live webinar will be presented on March 20, 2019, from 12 noon to 1:00pm.  For those individuals who are unable to participate in the webinar at that time, MSSNY will be placing a recorded version of that webinar on the MSSNY website to facilitate access to the webinar for MSSNY members.

By the conclusion of the “Train the Trainers” webinar, you will know how to teach your employees:

  • How to identify the more subtle forms of sexual harassment.
  • The impact of sexual harassment on the quality of care and the victim.
  • Practical advice on how to diminish and prevent sexual harassment at your practice.
  • How to respond to sexual harassment in the workplace.
  • Guidelines on how to comply with statutory mandates relating to sexual harassment.

Garfunkel Wild offers individual or group training, on-site or off-site training, as well as webinar modules that can serve to satisfy this new statutory mandate for your employees. If you would like to set up a personal training, please contact Andrew L. Zwerling at 516-393-2581 or azwerling@garfunkelwild.com.
