National Suicide Prevention Month: Call 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. There are an average of 123 suicides each day and 44000 suicide in a year in USA. It’s the tenth leading cause of death in America — second leading for ages 25-34, and third leading for ages 15-24. To create awareness and strengthen the fight against suicide, the entire month of September is Suicide Prevention Month.

With an increased number of people reporting worsening mental health in recent years, people must be aware of the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) telephone program.

Suicidal thoughts can plague anyone regardless of age, gender, or social status. Commonly linked to depression, there is no foolproof indicator of suicidal tendencies. Many people can cover up their suicidal thoughts very well.

People experiencing a suicidal, substance use, and/or mental health crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress can call, chat or text 988, and speak to trained crisis counselors. The national hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The previous National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will continue to be operational, and route calls to 988 indefinitely.

Remembering the Victims of 9/11 and the Queen. Today, we mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away yesterday after a reign of 70 years and 214 days, the longest of any British monarch and the longest recorded of any female head of state. And on Sunday, September 11, we will remember the nearly 3,000 people lost in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Wellness Corner. “Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However, blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability. Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide.” – Michio Kaku

What Physicians Need to Know About the Healthcare Worker Bonus Program
MSSNY has been working closely with county society executives across the State to answer questions from physicians and their staffs regarding the State’s Health care worker bonus program enacted in the State Budget earlier this year.

Following lots of e-mail discussions with DOH staff, and reviewing the frequently updated DOH FAQs Frequently Asked Questions ( for changing information, here is a “Top 10” of what physicians need to know about this program:

  • Physician practices with at least 20% Medicaid patient population are eligible to submit for the bonuses on behalf of eligible employees (listed in the FAQ).
  • 20% Medicaid includes patients enrolled in Medicaid fee for service, Medicaid Managed Care and where Medicaid is secondary.
  • Based upon an e-mail from DOH, the 20% does not include non-Medicaid Child Health Plus, the Essential Plan or Medicare (or other public-supported coverage)
  • The state has not defined what period of time should include the 20%.  I think they have left up to the various providers to justify through documentation over some period of time (i.e., 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, etc.)
  • If you can’t complete the documentation for vesting period 1 (employees from 10/1/21 – 3/31/22), for which the submission deadline is today, September 2, you will have another chance to submit for eligible employees in October for Vesting Period 1, in addition to employees for Vesting Period 2 (employees from 4/1/22 – 9/30/22)
  • There are 3 additional employee 6-month vesting periods (5 total) running through March 31, 2024
  • There is a defined formula in the statute for the bonus level for the eligible employees, based upon the number of average hours worked during a 6-month vesting period.
    1. 20-30 hours = $500 bonus/vesting period
    2. 30-35 hours = $1,000 bonus/vesting period
    3. 35 hours or more = $1,500 bonus/vesting period
  • An eligible employee may not receive a bonus for more than 2 vesting periods, with a maximum bonus of $3,000 cumulatively
  • With very limited exceptions, an eligible employee cannot have earned more than $62,500 for a particular vesting period
  • Medical residents and fellows are eligible to receive the bonuses.   With some limited exceptions, they remain eligible even if they shifted facilities during a particular vesting period.

For more information, folks may want to watch this informative webinar from the Monroe County Medical Society, with participating from MSSNY staff, to answer questions regarding the program from physicians and their staffs. Passcode Required – Zoom, passcode – Q2wTV*7S

AMA Report: Disturbing Trends on Overdose Deaths Requires Specific Actions, All-Hands Approach
This week the American Medical Association (AMA) released its Overdose Epidemic Report for 2022. While the report highlights the great strides taken over the past decade to reduce the nation’s opioid abuse epidemic, including positive actions taken by physicians across multiple areas within their control, it paints a sobering reminder of the worsening epidemic. While physicians and other health care professionals have reduced opioid prescribing in New York by 49.5% since 2012, in line with the national average of nearly 50%, that cannot reverse the trend of drug-related overdose deaths. In fact, for the first time, in 2021, drug-related overdose deaths exceeded 100,000.

The AMA calls for an all hands campaign to include Policymakers, health insurance plans, national pharmacy chains, and other stakeholders to change their focus to remove barriers such as prior authorization to evidence-based care. States should require health insurance companies and other payers to make non-opioid pain care alternatives more accessible and affordable. Medical and other health care professional licensing boards help patients with pain by reviewing and rescinding arbitrary restrictions on opioid therapy as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended. Read the full report to learn more about how you can make a difference in this crisis.

Are You Afraid to Identify as a Leader?
Self-identity matters: research has shown that seeing yourself as a leader is the first step toward becoming one, and reluctance to identify as a leader can keep capable people from taking on leadership responsibilities. Prior research has shown that reputational concerns significantly deter people from proactively pursuing their goals at work. To explore this question, the author conducted a series of studies with more than 1,700 participants, including full-time employees, MBA students, and U.S. Airforce cadets. One finding was consistent: the more people worried about the reputational risks of being a leader, the less likely they were to identify as one. The three most prominent were:

  • Fear of seeming domineering
  • Fear of seeming different
  • Fear of seeming unqualified

Learn more about the fears holding you back from becoming a leader in the office and at MSSNY.

Americans, No Matter the State They Live In, Die Younger Than People in Many Other Countries
Despite spending more on health care than any other nation, the United States has a lower average life expectancy and higher avoidable mortality rate than most middle to high-income countries. The authors compare individual states and the District of Columbia to peer countries on these two health system measures. They found that regardless of where Americans live, they are more likely to die earlier from preventable causes than people in many other countries.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) defines avoidable mortality as deaths before age 75 from conditions that are either preventable through effective public health and primary prevention (before the onset of disease) or treatable when detected early and adequate care is received. Examples include deaths from diabetes, certain infections, breast and colon cancer, appendicitis, and renal failure. The author suggests ways the United States can improve our mortality rate by adopting new healthcare policies similar to those used worldwide.

View MSSNYPAC’s Legislator Scorecard!
Which Senators and Assemblymembers are making the right choices to protect health care access in your communities?

With the summer primaries behind us and just eight weeks until the midterm elections in November, MSSNYPAC has released its scorecard for the 2022 legislative session. The scorecard is a valuable tool for physicians that contains the voting and co-sponsorship records of each state legislator on issues important to New York physicians, their patients, and our health care system. This year, the scorecard encompasses seven bills supported by MSSNY and four bills opposed by MSSNY.

Urge Governor Hochul to Sign Managed Care Reform Bills into Law
Physicians are again urged to contact Governor Hochul to ask her to sign into law a several bills supported by MSSNY and numerous patient advocacy organizations (NY Legislature Passes Legislation with Important Patient Protections – Aimed Alliance) to address hassles patients and their physicians are experiencing with health insurers.

The first bill, A.879/S.8113, would ensure that those who make “medical necessity” determinations on behalf of a health insurance company are appropriately qualified to make those decisions. Please contact Governor Hochul to urge her to sign this bill into law.

This bill would ensure that a health plan may not deny a request for needed patient care unless the reviewing physician is adequately qualified to review the treatment requested or provided, by requiring that such reviewing physician be board-certified or board eligible in the same or similar specialty as the physician who typically recommends the treatment or manage the condition that is under review.  It would also require that such physician have a New York license to practice medicine and provide much-needed, additional protections to ensure that these patients will have coverage for the care they are expecting and entitled to receive.

To learn more about this issue, please read a recent op-ed coauthored by MSSNY members and Long Island oncologists Dr. David Eagle and Dr. Jeff Vacirca, which recently ran in Newsday.   In a recent MSSNY survey, 42% of the respondents indicated they frequently have experienced denials from health insurers by reviewers other than a physician practicing in the same specialty, and 77% of the respondents indicated they at least sometimes did.

A second bill, A.1741-A/S.5299-A, would prohibit a health plan from imposing a policy that forbids a payment from a third party to count towards the patient’s deductible or maximum out-of-pocket cost-sharing limit. This practice can be especially challenging for patients that have health insurance plans with high deductibles or high copayment requirements. Please take a moment to send a letter to Governor Hochul urging her to sign this bill into law.

A third bill, A.3276/ S.5909, would ban insurance companies from applying “fail first” or step therapy protocols to treatments prescribed for patients with mental health conditions.  This would help to ensure that patients can receive needed medications without unnecessary and time-consuming pre-authorization burdens, Please take a moment to send a letter to Governor Hochul urging her to sign this important bill into law.

Please Help to Prevent Drastic Increases in Your Liability Premiums!
Physicians are continued to be urged to contact Governor Hochul Reject Expansion of Liability ( to request that she veto legislation (S.74-A, Hoylman/A.6770, Weinstein) that could cause drastic increases in physician medical liability premiums by significantly expanding the types of damages awardable in a wrongful death action. The bill was passed over the strenuous opposition of numerous and varied groups, including MSSNY, specialty societies, hospital associations, FQHCs, the Business Council of New York, medical liability and property & casualty insurers, The New York State Association of Counties, and the New York Conference of Mayors.

Specifically, the legislation would increase the already expansive damages awardable in such actions to include compensation for grief or anguish, the loss of love and companionship, loss of services and support, and the loss of nurture and guidance. One actuarial study has suggested that this bill has the potential to increase New York’s already outrageously high medical liability premiums by nearly 40%.

Through numerous forums, MSSNY has argued that legislation like this should only be considered in the context of a comprehensive effort to address New York’s excessive liability costs.  An op-ed from MSSNY President was printed in the Albany Times-Union, and a similar op-ed appeared in the Buffalo News by Erie County Medical Society President Dr. Robert Armstrong.  Dr. Mehta’ also had a letter to the editor published in Long Island Newsday and provided comments on articles on this issue on CBS6-Albany-TV and in Crains Health Pulse.

MSSNY has also been coordinating its efforts with other groups adversely impacted by this bill, with various op-eds by the Business Council of New York, and the NYS Conference of Mayors.

Again, please contact Governor Hochul here: Reject Expansion of Liability ( to make sure that we #DontChasePhysiciansOutofNY

Bills Supported by MSSNY:
A879/S8113 – Requires Same Specialty Peer Review by Health Plans
A1741-A/S5299-A – Limits Health Insurer “Copay Accumulators”
A3276/S5909 – Limits Mental Health Step Therapy

A6256/S5055 – Telehealth Payment Parity
A9908-A/S8299 – Reduces Prior Authorization Hassles through “Gold Cards”

Bills Opposed by MSSNY:
A6770/S74-A – Wrongful Death Expansion
A3470C/S2521C – Facility Fee Disclosure
A273/S4640 – Mandatory Opioid Prescribing Alternatives
A6008-E/S9449 – Mental Health Counselors Diagnosis

MSSNYPAC has also released specialized, county by county versions of its scorecard. This way, you will be able to see how the legislators that represent your county are voting on issues important to physicians and your patients. There are currently 20 county scorecards available. To request a scorecard from a county not listed, please contact or call 518-465-8085.

Wrongful Death Expansion
MSSNY President Dr. Mehta spoke with Crain’s Health Pulse on how Expansion of wrongful-death damages could inflate insurance costs, stating that actuarial estimates show the measure could lead to a 40% increase in malpractice premiums for private physicians and a 45% increase for hospitals.

The Importance of Vaccines
Dr. Mehta was quoted in a USA Today/LoHud article about the importance of vaccines and stated, “We must preserve community immunity to protect society − especially our most vulnerable newborns, pregnant women, the immune-compromised, and those with cancer…Vaccination can mean the difference between life and death.”

MSSNY Recoups Potential Losses and Changes Policy
The following testimony was submitted by MSSNY Member Ross Zeltser, MD, FAAD, FACMS of the Hudson Dermatology group.

“I strongly commend Heather K. Lopez- BSc., MSihm – MSSNY’s Director of Physician Payment & Practice. We first reached out to her earlier this year, asking for help with unfair reimbursement practices by UHC. She replied within minutes and used her connections at UHC to help us recover several thousand dollars and, more importantly, compel UHC to reverse the unjust and unjustified policy.”

A similar scenario played out more recently with Aetna. It is difficult to imagine a more responsive, proactive, and, most importantly, effective advocate than Heather. If anything, having the benefit of access to Heather would more than pay for the yearly dues! In the strongest possible terms, I urge all NY physicians to join MSSNY.

United Healthcare’s MODIFIER 25 is Delaying Payments
It has recently been brought to MSSNY’s attention that you will receive an edit back when submitting your electronic claims to United via MODIFIER 25. This edit will hold the claim for five days, and then it will begin processing.

The sole purpose of MODIFIER 25 is to identify another CPT code on the claim that is separate and distinct from the E/M code. Two weeks ago, in a national call, MSSNY’s Heather Lopez raised concerns over this topic and how this is ultimately a delay in payment. Heather implored them to take this back for reconsideration and proposed a “smart edit” that would not hold the claim up for five additional days but rather be information. For your reference, an article on modifier 25 from Physicians Practice.

If you have questions about this or any other insurance concern, contact MSSNY’s Director of Physician Payment and Practice, Heather Lopez, at 518.465.8085 X332 |

MSSNY Hosting Forum on What Physicians Need to Know When Treating Patients With FDA-Approved “Biosimilar” Therapies
Patients living with chronic or complex diseases have benefited in recent years from innovative biological medicines, commonly known as “Biosimilars”, which are manufactured from living cells and highly effective for many patients. Biosimilars are biological medicines approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as “highly similar” to an original biologic therapy.

Like many states, New York enacted a law that permits a pharmacist to substitute an FDA-approved biosimilar for an original biologic therapy, provided there is notice to the prescribing physician within five days of the substitution. The state legislature renewed the law during the 2002 legislative session. To help physicians better understand what Biosimilars are, how the law works and what it means for patients, MSSNY is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at 7:30am via Zoom. The webinar will feature health policy experts who will share information on this important issue and answer physicians’ questions about the potential impact on their patients.
