Message from the President

Dear QMEs,

While waiting for the DWC to publish a new fee schedule CSIMS advocacy has remained busy. We have been contacting the DWC to authorize the use of telemedicine for treatment and to find a way to use telemedicine for QME evaluations. If you have suggestions on a protocol for completing QME evaluations then you may forward them to jacobipm1@gmail.com. One suggestion was to take the history by phone, then screen the applicant for temperature (and if normal) then conduct the physical exam while wearing appropriate protection (gloves, gown and mask for both parties). If you have other suggestions let me know.

CSIMS is also sponsoring a bill, which will impact utilization review, MPNs and payment denials. We will have initial proposals prepared in the next week (come back for further updates). The goal is to actually pass legislation that will help patient’s receive care and help physicians get paid for the work they do.

If you appreciate the lobbying efforts we hope you will support CSIMS by becoming a member
