Attention PSOH Members!  Your advocacy is needed!

Surprise Medical Bill/Balance Billing Legislation (HB 1862would set a benchmark rate in statute for out-of-network providers. The bill would determine the payment rate and calculate reimbursement for providers based on average in-network rates. In simpler terms, out-of-network services would be reimbursed at in-network rates.

We need you to call and/or email your Representative NOW and ask them to SUPPORT AMENDMENTS to HB  1862 by voting Yes for the Kaufer amendment (#A3599), and the Rothman amendment (#A3601)These are critical amendments that health insurers are trying to kill.

Take Action

While the bill deals with payment for out-of-network providers, this benchmark rate-setting will impact ALL future contract negotiations with insurers trying to move in-network providers to this state-mandated rate, undermining a physician's right to negotiate a fair contract.

Lawmakers need to hear from YOU RIGHT NOW on the negative impact HB 1862 will have on your practice and your ability to provide care to their constituents if these amendments are not adopted.

ASCO and NCI Patient Information Wallet Card

Wallet Card Helps Doctors and Patients Stay Connected During Disasters

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have developed a tool that we hope will be helpful to oncologists and people with cancer in the event of a national or natural disaster, when patients may not be able to access their medical team for care.

ASCO and NCI have developed and tested with physicians and other medical staff a card that patients can carry in their wallets that will guide them to ASCO's patient information Web site (www.cancer.net) and NCI's Cancer Information Service (1-800-4-CANCER) if they are displaced from their homes due to a disaster situation. Download and print out the card.

The card includes information on how to access ASCO and NCI information tools. It also includes space on the back, where medical staff can include brief information about the patient's care in case the patient needs to be treated by a doctor who is unfamiliar with his or her diagnosis or treatment.
