Update on Medicare Fee Reductions

Technically, the 21.2 percent cut in Medicare fees is in effect as of April 1, 2010 but CMS has instructed its contractors to hold claims for the first 10 business days of April or until April 14, 2010.

As you know, Congress adjourned for its two-week spring recess without taking action to stop the reductions. We do know that Senate plans to hold a cloture vote after the recess which, if supported by 60 Senators, will allow a vote to occur on the legislation. That vote could occur as early as April 12.

New Jersey Physicians -- Legislative Call to Action

ACT NOW to stop Wrongful Death Expansion

Issue: The New Jersey Legislature continues to threaten consideration of bills that would allow unlimited emotional damages in cases of wrongful death. These bills, S-763/A-1158, passed the Legislature in 2008 by one vote in each chamber, only to be pocket vetoed by Governor Corzine. There is a high risk that the bills are passed again during this “lame duck” session.

SAFE CITIZENS DAY: 9.11.17

As we approach another anniversary of those tragic events that occurred on that fateful September morning 16 years ago, some of us might wonder how to best honor the memory of those we lost.  For some, the intimate details of those hours and days are indelibly imprinted in our minds.

NJ-ACEP has created a program designed to honor the memory of those lost in 9/11, and make each one of us safer, more resilient.    NJ-ACEP is proud of this initiative - created by long time NJ-ACEP member, Dr. James Pruden, who was one of the first physicians on the scene that tragic day, and remained on the scene for ten days.  

The goal of SAFE CITIZENS DAY is to commit ourselves to being better citizens by teaching or learning the things that will potentially help us, our families, our friends and our neighbors survive the time of unexpected challenges.   We urge every NJ-ACEP member to reach out to your hospital, your churches, your schools, your businesses and your community - and promote this day to accomplish any number of preparedness training programs.  

We have compiled a lengthy list of ideas, but it is by no means a complete list.  Whatever works for your communities is what you should undertake.  CLICK HERE FOR IDEAS
