MLMIC Insurance for Physicians

Dear Colleagues: 

We received concerns from a few specialties regarding fee data published by Fair Health in the fall of 2017.

Neurosurgeons, orthopedic and hand surgeons noticed a significant and unexpected decrease in fees relating to some of their most common procedures. The Fair Health database is a reference used in adjudicating out of network insurance payments to physicians.

Subsequently, MSSNY leadership and staff held a conference call with representatives of Fair Health. MSSNY expressed grave concern with regard to the fact that Fair Health should be fair. Their data should be objective and not manipulated. Fair Health identified that their research unveiled significant outliers in several of the surgical specialty fees and after analysis, they tweaked the data that resulted in the significant reductions.

During the course of our teleconference, Fair Health agreed that many of our points of concern were valid and agreed to rerun the fee data. After the re-publication, many of the fees have been corrected.  However, some of our specialists have concerns that remain.  We will ask Fair Health to address them as soon as possible.

We will keep you posted.

I have observed that Fair Health continues to be sensitive and sympathetic to the concerns raised by our physicians.

Once more, MSSNY, in concert with its physician members, was instrumental in seeking correction that would have harmed reimbursement for all physicians.

Governor Cuomo to Release Proposed Budget Tuesday
This Tuesday, January 16th at 1 PM, Governor Cuomo will give a presentation to release his FY 2018-19 proposed State Budget.  The Governor’s proposed Budget, certain to run into the thousands of pages, will seek to close an anticipated deficit of over $4 billion, as well as address uncertainty regarding continued federal funding for key New York health programs such as Child Health Insurance, the Essential plan, Community Health Centers, and Disproportionate Share (DSH) payments for hospitals. Please look for a summary of highlights following an initial MSSNY staff review of the Budget proposal.  (AUSTER)

MSSNY’s Lobby Day (3/7) will be here before You Know it! Register Today!
MSSNY’s “Physician Advocacy Day” will be held on Wednesday, March 7th in the Lewis Swyer Theatre in the Egg located at the Empire State Plaza, Albany NY. Click Here to Register!

Join your colleagues from all around New York State and come to MSSNY’s Physician Advocacy Day to speak with your legislators and key policymakers to ensure they’re making the right choices for New York’s physicians and their patients.

Join us to urge your legislators to:

  • Reduce excessive health insurer prior authorization hassles that needlessly delay patient care
  • Reduce the high cost of medical liability insurance
  • Preserve choice of physician for our patients
  • Reject burdensome mandates that interfere with patient care delivery
  • Preserve opportunities for our medical students and residents to become New York’s future health care leaders

A brief luncheon to which members of each House are invited to speak with their constituents will follow the morning program. Please contact your county Medical Society to coordinate scheduling appointments for physicians to meet with their elected representatives.

If you have any questions/comments, please contact Carrie Harring at charring@mssny.org (HARRING)

Please Urge Governor Cuomo to Support Comprehensive, Not One-Sided, Medical Malpractice Legislation
Legislation (S.6800/A.8516) to significantly expand the medical malpractice statute of limitations was the ONLY bill that passed the State Senate and Assembly in 2017 that has NOT yet been acted upon by the Governor!  Based upon a quirk in our State Constitution, with the bill delivered on December 29, Gov. Cuomo has until the end of January to consider the legislation.  

All physicians are urged to contact the Gov. to urge him to veto this legislation. You can send a letter to the Governor here and/or call 518-474-8390.

Urge him to work to develop comprehensive legislation that addresses the many deficiencies of New York’s malpractice adjudication system.   NY overwhelmingly has the highest medical liability costs in the country and was recently designated by WalletHub as the worst state in the country to be a physician.  The bill would significantly expand the time to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit, in circumstances based upon an “alleged negligent failure to diagnose a malignant tumor or cancer.” 

This week a letter was sent to Governor Cuomo from Dr. Michael Pisacaino, President of the Bronx County Medical Society.

that describes the negative consequences to the Bronx health care delivery system if this bill were to be signed into law without enacting needed reforms to bring down our costs.  The letter was also shared with Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, whose district is in the Bronx.  

Given that there will be ongoing discussions with the Legislature regarding the ultimate disposition of S.6800, physicians are urged to contact their local senators and assembly members to: 

  • Share their concerns about the impact of this legislation to access to patient          care in their communities, and
  • Urge them to work towards the enactment of comprehensive medical liability        reform.

A letter can be sent from here.

NYS Council on Women and Girls Issues Status Report
Governor Andrew Cuomo Council on Women and Girls issued a 2018 report this week.   Members of Governor Cuomo’s administration crisscrossed the state to hear the concerns of New York women on issues such as the gender wage gap, sexual harassment in the workplace, and lack of educational programs to encourage interest in computer science and engineering. In the healthcare arena the report identifies areas that need to be addressed:

  • Passage of the Contraceptive Coverage Act: The use, accessibility and availability contraception to all women and in 2018 the Governor will advance legislation to codify access to contraception, including emergency contraception in NYS.
  • Codify Roe v Wade Into State Law and Constitution: The governor will again call for legislation that will ensure the right of women to abortion and will also eliminate the criminal component of this act by placing it under the public health law rather than the penal law.
  • Improve Access To IVF and Fertility Preservation Services
  • Launch Multi-Agency Effort to Combat Maternal Depression
  • Partnering with ACOG, establish the Maternal Mortality Review Board to Save Lives
  • Add physician experts in women’s health and health disparities to the state board of medicine

The entire report can be found here. (CLANCY)

Senator DeFrancisco Introduces Legislation to Prohibit Hospitals, Health Plans from Requiring Board Certification
Senate Deputy Majority Leader John DeFrancisco (R-Syracuse) this week introduced legislation (S.7537) supported by MSSNY that would prohibit a hospital from requiring board certification as a condition of having staff privileges, and prohibit a health insurance company from requiring board certification as a condition of being a participating physician in such plan. The legislation is designed to provide physicians with some ability to push back against the extraordinary time and cost demands associated with completing Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements imposed by some specialty boards.

In December, MSSNY President-elect Dr. Thomas Madejski along with several other state medical society representatives participated in a meeting with the American Board of Medical Specialties to discuss how best to collaboratively address what many physicians believe are excessive MOC time and cost requirements that go far beyond what is relevant to physicians’ actual practice.  Click here to read Dr. Madejski’s follow-up letter to ABMS.

The Senate legislation is substantially similar to legislation also supported by MSSNY (A.4914) introduced by Assemblymember Robin Schimminger (D-Kenmore).             (AUSTER)

New York State Workers’ Compensation Board Issues Draft Regulations to Establish Drug Formulary
The enacted 2017-18 budget required the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board to establish a drug formulary by the end of the year to include  a tiered list of high-quality, cost-effective medications that are pre-approved to be  prescribed  and  dispensed,  as well as additional non-preferred drugs that can be prescribed with prior approval.

On December 27th, the Workers’ Compensation Board announced draft regulations and initiated a 60-day comment period.  Please click here to read the board’s recommendations for its preferred drug list.  Please click here to review the regulations that set forth how physicians can request a non-formulary drug for their patient. The formulary is proposed to begin  July 1.

MSSNY is continuing to review the proposal and will provide comments.  In particular, MSSNY will argue to assure that pre-authorization hassles be minimized.  Any physicians interesting in submitting comments and requests to add/delete pharmaceuticals to the preferred list of the prescription drug formulary must submit their comments on or before February 26, 2018.

Want to Learn More About New York’s New Prescription Step Therapy Override Law?
Please click here to view a webinar discussing New York’s new law that gives physicians a stronger ability to override a health insurer’s step therapy protocol when seeking to assure their patients can receive coverage for necessary prescription medications.    Among the faculty for the program are MSSNY President-elect Dr. Thomas Madejski and MSSNY Senior Vice President Moe Auster    The webinar, sponsored by the National Psoriasis Foundation, will provide physicians with 0.5 hours of CME credit.

As of January 1, the new law is applicable to all NY-regulated health insurance plans, including Medicaid Managed Care plans.  MSSNY has created a template for physicians and their support staff to use in requesting a step therapy protocol override, available here.

Enforcement is the key to assuring that the law is working as intended.  Therefore, please let us know if you or your staff experience instances where health insurers are not following the law.  Moreover, you can file a complaint with </athe State here.(AUSTER)

US Department of Labor Proposes Rules to Expand Use of Cross-State Association Health Plans
The US Department of Labor (DOL) has formally proposed rules that would “broaden the ability of small businesses and sole proprietors to have more freedom to band together” to establish Association Health plans (AHPs).  It follows up a October 2017 Presidential Executive Order which directed the DOL to consider proposing regulations or revising guidance to expand access to health coverage by allowing more employers to form AHPs.

Click here to read the full press release.

Specifically, the proposed rule would broaden the criteria under ERISA for determining when employers may join together in an employer group or association that is treated as the ‘employer’ sponsor of a single multiple-employer ‘employee welfare benefit plan’ and ‘group health plan.   The proposed rule applies only to employer-sponsored health insurance. According to the DOL press release, the rule would:

  • Allow employers to form a Small Business Health Plan on the basis of geography or industry. A plan could serve employers in a state, city, county, or a multi-state metro area, or it could serve all the businesses in a particular industry nationwide;
  • Allow sole proprietors to join Small Business Health Plans, clearing a path to access health insurance for the millions of uninsured Americans who are sole proprietors or the family of sole proprietors

After the Presidential Executive Order was released, consistent with policy adopted at the 2017 MSSNY House of Delegates, MSSNY President Dr. Charles Rothberg issued a statement expressing concerns with the possibility that the expanded use of AHPs could remove oversight of health insurance plans away from state governments, resulting in “more consumers purchasing plans with even more exorbitant out of pocket costs, fewer choices of physicians and a reduction in the ability of patients and physicians to enforce provisions of a health insurance contract”.   MSSNY working together with the AMA and medical </asocieties across the country are analyzing the DOL proposed regulation and will follow up with appropriate comments. (AUSTER)

CMS Announces New Voluntary Bundled Payment Model
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) announced this week the launch of a new voluntary bundled payment model – the “Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced” (BPCI Advanced model).

Please click here for more information.

The new BCPI Advanced model focuses on 32 different clinical episodes, including major joint replacement of the lower extremity (inpatient) and percutaneous coronary intervention (inpatient or outpatient). CMS notes that the BPCI Advanced will qualify as an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (Advanced APM) under the MACRA’s Quality Payment Program.  As such, BCPI Advanced model participants will bear financial risk, have payments under the model tied to quality performance, and are required to use Certified Electronic Health Record Technology. The new CMMI model would allow participants to earn additional payments if “all expenditures for a beneficiary’s episode of care are under a spending target that factors in quality.”

The Model Performance Period for BPCI Advanced starts on October 1, 2018 and runs through December 31, 2023. The model will include a formal, independent evaluation process to assess the quality of care and changes in spending under the model.  Applications for participate must be submitted by March 12, 2018.  CMMI will also host an Open Forum on the model on Tuesday, January 30th from 12pm-1pm.

MSSNY and AMA Working Together to Educate Physicians on Prediabetes and the Prevent Diabetes STAT Toolkit
Diabetes affects more than 25 percent of Americans aged 65 or older, and its pervasiveness is projected to increase approximately two-fold for all U.S. adults (ages 18-79) by 2050 if current trends continue.

As part of ongoing work to reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes nationwide, the American Medical Association (AMA) has commenced a multi-state effort to reach more of the estimated 84 million Americans who unknowingly live with prediabetes.  MSSNY has proudly partnered with the AMA to launch this proactive initiative to educate New York State physicians on how to initiate clinical practice change and prevent diabetes in patient population.

The AMA and Center for Disease Control (CDC) have collaborated to create a comprehensive toolkit that can be utilized by both physicians and patients. The Prevent Diabetes STAT Toolkit incorporates resources to assist with engaging and educating healthcare teams and patients, as well as resources to help healthcare providers seamlessly incorporate screening, testing, and referral systems within their practice. The toolkit enables patients to leave the office with concrete information for later reference. For physicians, the toolkit provides references such as letter/email templates for practices to conduct efficient follow-ups and patient referrals, among other valuable information. To view or download the complete Prevent Diabetes STAT Toolkit, click here.

Please contact Carrie Harring at charring@mssny.org for more information and to express your interest in developing a partnership.                                                  (HARRING)

MSSNY Partners with AMA To Educate New York’s Physicians and Patients on Diabetes Prevention;  Physicians  Encouraged to Take Survey
The Medical Society of the State of New York has partnered with the American Medical Association to bring its Prevent Diabetes STAT initiative to New York.  MSSNY has developed a short survey to sample physician’s knowledge of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) and the Prevent Diabetes STAT program. The survey also serves as a platform to physicians to express what specific boundaries they have experienced or anticipate experiencing regarding the implementation of the DPP and/or Prevent Diabetes STAT. Participation in this survey is essential to the development of various educational components that will benefit both the physician and patient communities. Click here to take the survey.

By educating physicians and connecting more patients to evidence-based lifestyle change programs, this diabetes initiative will help bridge the gap between clinical care settings and communities to reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes. “Improving the quality of prediabetes and diabetes care in medical practices is crucial to the health of New York State’s patient population,” said MSSNY’s President Dr. Charles Rothberg. “Over 700,000 New Yorkers have this disease, yet almost a third are unware.  Educating both physicians and patients about lifestyle changes and diabetes management is a priority, and MSSNY is proud to be partnered with the AMA in an effort to make these necessary changes.”                                                                                                          (HARRING, CLANCY) 

Bill to Prohibit Children From Using Tanning Booths Advances in the Legislature
Senate Bill 5585 A, sponsored by Senator Phil Boyle, has been placed on the Senate Health Committee agenda for next week and would prohibit children under the age of 18 from using tanning facilities.  The bill also removes  the procedures in granting 17 to 18 year olds access to tanning booths and exempts licensed physicians who use or prescribe a phototherapy device with respect to a patient of any age. Current law prohibits children under 16 years of age from using tanning facilities.  Identical legislation (A.7218, Jaffee) is on the Assembly calendar.  The American Cancer Society has noted that the highest risk for skin cancer lies is from the use of indoor tanning facilities.  Moreover, the World Health Organization categorizes tanning devices as its highest cancer risk. It has been found, that using tanning booths before the age of 35 increases the risk of melanoma by 59%, squamous cell carcinoma by 67% a name=”sea”>and basal cell carcinoma by 29%.  The Medical Society of the State of New York strongly supports this measure.  (CLANCY)      

Seasonal Influenza has Hit New York State Early and Hard
New York State saw its first pediatric death from influenza on January 11th.  During the week ending January 6th, there were 3,942 laboratory confirmed cases of influenza, a 37% increase over the previous week.  And there were 1,258 patients hospitalized with laboratory confirmed influenza, a 40% increase over the previous week.  Additionally, 61 counties reported influenza cases during that week.

MSSNY Takes Aim at Insurers
From Crain’s NY, 1/2/18:

This year the Medical Society of the State of New York wants the Legislature to take up a number of issues that have made it increasingly difficult to practice as an independent physician in the state.

“Our goal is to help turn around our recent designation as the worst state in the country to be a doctor,” said Moe Auster, senior vice president for legislative and regulatory affairs, referring to rankings published by the website WalletHub.

MSSNY’s top priority is to renew its push for a bill (A.4472/S.3663) allowing independent physicians to form groups to negotiate payment rates with insurers. The organization said this is necessary given actions from insurers, such as EmblemHealth, to cut certain independent doctors out of their networks in favor of larger groups.

It differs from the concept of an independent practice association in that doctors wouldn’t have to be financially or clinically integrated, Auster said. A similar bill was approved by the Senate and Assembly health committees but didn’t make it to a full vote by either chamber.

MSSNY is also advocating for a bill that would give doctors access to an appeal hearing if an insurer doesn’t renew their contract and another that would require health plans to offer a product that covers out-of-network care.

The group will oppose several bills that could increase medical liability costs after suffering a loss last year, when the Legislature passed Lavern’s Law, which pertains only to malpractice cases brought by cancer patients. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has not yet signed the measure, which starts the clock on the statute of limitations at the date of discovery of a medical error, not the date the error occurred. The bill was delivered to the governor on Dec. 29. (Crains)

Don’t ignore what may be our last chance to defeat this detrimental piece of legislation. It takes less than a minute!

CMS Launches New Data Submission System for Clinicians in QPP
On Tuesday, January 2, CMS launched a new data submission system for clinicians participating in the Quality Payment Program. Clinicians can now submit all of their 2017 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) data through one platform on the qpp.cms.gov website. Data can be submitted and updated any time from January 2, 2018 to March 31, 2018, with the exception of CMS Web Interface users who will have a different timeframe to report quality data from January 22, 2018 to March 16, 2018. Clinicians are encouraged to log-in early to familiarize themselves with the system. 

How to Login to the Quality Payment Program Data Submission System

To login and submit data, clinicians will use their Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) credentials.

  • The EIDM account provides CMS customers with a single user identification they can use to access many CMS systems.
  • The system will connect each user with their practice Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Once connected, clinicians will be able to report data for the practice as a group, or for individual clinicians within the practice.
  • To learn about how to create an EIDM account, see this user guide.

Real-Time Scoring

As data is entered, clinicians will see real-time initial scoring within the MIPS performance categories. Data is automatically saved and clinician records are updated in real time. This means a clinician can begin a submission, leave without completing it, and then finish it at a later time without losing the information. 

Payment Adjustment Calculations

Payment adjustments will be calculated based on the last submission or submission update that occurs before the submission period closes on March 31, 2018. 

Determining Eligibility

There are two eligibility look-up tools available to confirm a clinician�s status in the Quality Payment Program. Clinicians who may be included in MIPS should check their National Provider Identifier (NPI) in the MIPS Participation Status Tool, which will be updated with the most recent eligibility data, to confirm whether they are required to submit data under MIPS for 2017. For clinicians who know they are in an MIPS APM or Advanced APM, CMS is working to improve the Qualifying APM Participant (QP) Look-up Tool to include eligibility information for Advanced APM and MIPS APM participants. We anticipate sharing this updated tool in January 2018.

CMS Claims New York Owes Them $20 million
New York did not follow federal funding requirements for money it used to set up the New York State of Health marketplace and should refund the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services more than $20 million, a federal audit found.

The audit, by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General, found that New York’s insurance marketplace improperly allocated costs related to its contract with Maximus, which operated the marketplace’s customer service center from June 2012 to March 2015. It reviewed $39.8 million in contract costs that the state attributed to the establishment grants it was given to set up the marketplace.

The report said New York erred in part because it did not have written policies that outlined how to properly allocate costs and did not establish a basis for the amount of profit Maximus would be able to keep at the beginning of the contract.

CDC To Discuss Preparations for Possible Nuclear War
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will give a presentation on Jan. 16 called “Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation” with the aim of preparing those who “would be responsible for overseeing the emergency response to a nuclear attack.” Bert Kelly, a spokesman for the CDC, said the agency started planning the event last April, and that the workshop “is part of CDC’s longstanding and routine work, similar to work it does to prepare for other possible health emergencies, with the goal of ensuring the public health community is prepared for all types of health threats.”

The workshop will include sessions titled “Preparing for the Unthinkable,” “Roadmap to Radiation Preparedness,” and “Public Health Resources to Meet Critical Components of Preparedness,” according to the agency’s website about the workshop. https://www.cdc.gov/cdcgrandrounds/archives/2018/January2018.htm
