Common Practice Management Questions


Coding & Billing

  • MACRA 
    On April 27, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a Notice Executive of Proposed Rule making to implement key provisions of the Medicare Access and Summary CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), legislation that repealed the Sustainable Growth Rate formula and replaced it with the “Quality Payment Program."  This proposed rule requires physicians to participate in either the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) or the Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs).  For more information on this, please click here.


Delegation Guidance

  • Delegation rules with respect to cosmetic procedures
    The Medical Practice Act defines the “practice of medicine” as to “engage, with or without compensation, in medical diagnosis, healing, treatment, or surgery.” It specifically includes “diagnosing, healing, treating, preventing, prescribing for, or removing any physical, mental, or emotional ailment or supposed ailment of an individual by physical, mental, emotional, or other process that is exercised or invoked by the practitioner, the patient, or both, or by appliance, test, drug, operation, or treatment. HO 14-101(o).


Health Insurance

  • Request for Confidential Communications Form
    This form lets you choose where your health information gets sent after your health care visit. Right now, if you do not complete this form, your health information will be sent to the person who pays for the insurance you use. You can ask that the information be sent to a different address or by other means that only you will see. You can do this if you believe that giving your health information to the person paying for your insurance would put you in danger.
