Please be sure to read the question of the week below. It pertains to the HHS funds you may have received and lets you know they are taxable unless your company is a non-profit (which it likely is not). CalChiro is working with a coalition of other State associations to get this changed. I will keep you posted.

This past week has been a busy one for our volunteers. The CalChiro Board of Directors met on Monday. One of the exciting outcomes is a new member benefit we are adopting! It can be thought of as a virtual mall where products and services will be available to you at discounted rates. We are busy working on implementation now and will get you specifics and registration information in the next few weeks.

The Post COVID-19 Task Force met today to finalize a related policy statement. Turns out we want to develop this a bit further but hope to have it out to you within a couple of weeks. I know you will find the information it contains to be highly valuable. They are also working on getting a current COVID-19 office manual developed for you.

Government Affairs Chair Phil Dieter hosted a webinar for our key doctors this week. If you are interested in taking a listen, you can do so here. I think all will agree that he shared some great information.

The CalChiro District and Student Chapter Presidents were invited to a meeting hosted by CalChiro President Andrew Williams yesterday. If you are a president and missed it, please contact Director of Membership, Kelley Smith, to receive the recording. So much critical information was shared! We covered anti-trust, affiliation agreements, elections, taxes, district meetings, continuing education, regional town halls and more.



Warm Regards,

Q: Are Health & Human Services (HHS) provider relief funds taxable?

A: Unless your company is a nonprofit, the answer is yes. “In posts to their respective website FAQs, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have both clarified that grant payments received by for-profit providers from the HHS Provider Relief Fund shall be treated as taxable income. Tax-exempt providers are exempt from taxation on the Provider Relief Fund payments, unless the payment is reimbursing expenses or lost revenue attributable to an unrelated trade or business of the tax-exempt provider.

The agencies explain that a payment from the Provider Relief Fund to a business, even if the business is a sole proprietorship, does not qualify as a qualified disaster relief payment under Section 139 of the Internal Revenue Code and is therefore includible in gross income under Section 61 of the Code.

The CARES Act, under which the Provider Relief Fund was established, did not address whether these grants would be taxable income. If Congress intended the grants to be non-taxable, additional legislative action would be necessary. Unless or until such time, physician practices, for-profit hospitals, and other for-profit healthcare facilities must report the payments as part of their taxable gross income.”

BREAKING BCE NEWS: Updated COVID-19 Testing Guidance

Source: Board of Chiropractic Examiners (BCE)

Today the BCE released this statement to licensees: 

Dear Board of Chiropractic Examiner's Licensees,

As the public health battle against COVID-19 continues, your help in slowing the spread is critical. COVID-19 affects us all -- friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. That’s why it so important that we wear a mask, wash our hands, maintain physical distancing and don’t gather with people we don’t live with.

Most recently, the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) issued updated testing guidance. The guidance outlines different tiers to help determine who should be tested given the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic in California. We encourage you to review this guidance and assist in testing by ensuring your patients who need to be are tested.

You can access the new COVID-19 Industry Guidance for testing on CDPH’s website.

DCA has developed a testing priority flyer to be placed in provider offices. You can download and print the flyer here.

Please ensure you are following the guidance provided by CDPH and your local county requirements. For the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 and best practices on preventing its spread visit the covid19.ca.gov website.

DCA maintains a list of waivers and guidance on their Coronavirus page at www.dca.ca.gov. Specific information for chiropractic licensees can be found on our webpage at www.chiro.ca.gov.

Thank you for doing your part in helping California slow the spread of COVID-19. Our collective actions will save lives.

Responding to COVID-19 in the Workplace

Source: California Department of Public Health

This checklist is intended for use by employers experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19 in their workplace. Employers should be proactive and keep in mind that identification of even a single positive case among employees may quickly develop into an outbreak. As outbreak circumstances and work practices vary, employers may need assistance from their local health department (LHD) to plan and coordinate a response to the outbreak that meets the needs of the workplace.

This guidance is not intended for use in managing or preventing outbreaks in healthcare, congregate living settings, or other workplaces where the California Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) standard applies.

Employers should also consult:
  • CDC guidance for businesses and small businesses for information on preventing outbreaks;
  • Cal/OSHA guidance to ensure that they are complying with legal requirements for worker protection; and
  • the California statewide industry-specific guidance to reduce risk during and after reopening of businesses.

Updated CDC Guide Says Self-Isolate for 10 Days
After Positive COVID-19 Test
 
Source: The Hill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its guidance on self-isolation for people who test positive for COVID-19.

According to the new guidelines, people who are symptomatic with COVID-19 should isolate at home for 10 days after symptoms begin and for 24 hours after your fever has broken.

“A limited number of persons with severe illness” and those who are severely immunocompromised may need to isolate for 20 days after symptom onset, the agency said.

Asymptomatic patients should isolate for 10 days from the date of their first positive test.
The new guidelines were previewed last week, when officials said the CDC would recommend people do not need to have two negative tests in order to end isolation, which was the previous standard.

Trump Directs Federal Agencies to Make
Telehealth Reforms ‘Totally Permanent’
 
Source: Becker's Hospital Review

President Donald Trump said telemedicine is a top priority for his administration and is working to make the temporary regulatory changes permanent during a July 16 news briefing.

After the pandemic hit, the administration removed barriers that allowed physicians to work across state lines to provide telemedicine. It also made changes to temporarily boost reimbursement for telemedicine and make it more accessible for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.

“I have ordered federal agencies to look for ways to make these healthcare reforms totally permanent,” he said.

CMS Administrator Seema Verma penned a Health Affairs article on July 15 outlining the areas CMS is examining to permanently expand telehealth. They include Medicare pay rates for telehealth, fraud abuse prevention and mode of delivery.

A group of bipartisan lawmakers introduced a bill in the U.S. House on July 16 that moves to protect telehealth services after the public health emergency is lifted and requires studying the use of telehealth during the pandemic.

World Federation of Chiropractic Announces
“Back on Track” World Spine Day 2020 Theme

 
World Spine Day, October 16 each year, is a global day of action to highlight the burden of spinal pain and disability and promote optimum spinal health. The theme for this year’s World Spine Day (#worldspineday) is “Back on Track” (#backontrack).

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in lockdown measures that have restricted people’s ability to undertake physical activity and keep mobile. Working from home has led to increased reports of back and neck pain. World Spine Day’s 2020 campaign will emphasize how people can get “Back on Track”, re-energize themselves with healthy spine habits and restore their activity levels.

Back pain is the largest single cause of years lived with disability. Proper prevention and ensuring a healthy spine – made up of 24 separate vertebrae and over 60 joints - is therefore of paramount importance. Evidence supports regular movement and activity so that the spine can function properly, keeping you upright and protecting your spinal cord and nerves.

Get 'Active and Adaptive' During
National Chiropractic Health Month This October

 
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has announced that this October during National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) 2020, chiropractors nationwide will focus on helping people become more “Active and Adaptive” as they continue to adjust to lifestyle changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

After months of sheltering in place, many people are still practicing lifestyle changes to reduce their potential exposure to the novel coronavirus: avoiding crowded public spaces, working from home, forgoing air travel for car trips, ordering food and supplies online, and avoiding gyms and exercise classes. As a result, people are moving less, feeling less fit and, in some cases, experiencing pain. NCHM 2020 will encourage the public to adjust to the challenges of staying fit and pain free within a smaller lifestyle footprint by becoming more mindful of movement and posture and by highlighting tips and strategies to help them adapt in healthy ways.

Question: Is it okay to wish our employees a happy birthday
on our company social media page?

 
Source: California Choice

There’s no law against it, but some employees may feel that announcing their birthday violates their privacy. While it’s great that you want to recognize your employees and celebrate with them, I recommend not announcing an employee’s birthday without first getting their permission.

In the case of announcements on public social media, I would get a signed acknowledgement that the employee has given you permission to share their birthday and that their doing so is completely voluntary. Announcing birthdays on public social media pages is a little riskier because these posts can be seen by everyone.

You could instead make the announcements internally (still with permission). Popular approaches include email, newsletter, or intranet. Many offices have a birthday celebration each month and announce the employees who have birthdays during that month without mention of their exact birthday. This is a way to celebrate employees and increase morale without putting any given employee in the spotlight.

Virtual Vendor Fridays

Presenter: Medical Lien Recovery
 
When: TOMORROW, July 24, 2020 | 12:30pm - 1:00pm PDT

Member Pricing: FREE

CalChiro is excited to present this week's Virtual Vendor Friday with Medical Lien Recovery (MLR). Michael Coates, Founder and President of MLR, believes providers face an unfair dynamic when accepting patients on a lien basis in personal injury (PI) matters, and that must change. Since 2012, Michael has championed on behalf of Chiropractors through in-depth education, continuous support and devoted advocacy. With MLROutsource, lien negotiations are made easy -- we do it for you.

MLR offers more. We know sometimes you want to do it yourself, rather than outsource services. We developed the free MLRPortal where you gain the knowledge and get the tools and resources to change the dynamic, reduce the stress, and improve your bottom line.

During this presentation, you will learn:

  • About MLROutsource and how we negotiate for improved bill payments getting many of our clients 100% of their bills in PI, even when being asked to accept pennies on the dollar. Michael will give you a sneak peak on how we are so successful in this area and are the undisputed leader in this field.
  • About the free MLRPortal. If you have a great staff, but they need improved skills and knowledge, we'll teach them how to get faster and higher bill payments. We'll also give you a guided back-of-the-house online tour of the MLR Portal during this session.
  • You will learn you actually don’t have to choose, as you can actually do both depending upon the law firms, your needs and timing.

MLR's giveaway during this presentation is one that doesn't come in a gift card or a box. We offer all our tips, tools and resources for FREE to CalChiro Members and non-members during this business slowdown. You may have heard about our “Wine with Mike” monthly sessions with guests in all aspects of not just the lien area, but all kinds of business aspects of small medical practices in order to not just survive, but thrive.

Imaging and its Relevance to Your Practice
Speaker: Sana U. Khan MD
 
CEUs: 2.5 General & X-Ray CE hours
Member Pricing: FREE

Presented by: CalChiro LA Metro District

MRI results are often a fork-in-the-road not only in clinical decision making but also in the direction of litigation in med-legal cases. It is a simple, yet fundamental observation that many human musculoskeletal conditions are impacted by gravity, and that many patients experience signs and symptoms in weight bearing positions even when they do not in the recumbent one. Thus, recumbent imaging alone may not demonstrate the full degree of pathology, due to muscle and ligament relaxation and in the case of the spine, disc retraction. Conventional magnetic resonance imaging systems are limited to acquiring scans with patients in the recumbent position (r-MRI).

A proactive approach to addressing the opioid epidemic
Kaiser Permanente July 21, 2020
“You know you have a problem when you can’t sleep at night and you’re irritable and you’re miserable, and you don’t want to be around people. That’s when you know the opiate has taken over,” Timothy C. said. Longtime Kaiser Permanente member Timothy first started taking a synthetic opioid to treat a back injury. The drugs helped, but soon he felt like he needed more and more to get rid of the pain. It wasn’t long before he realized he had a problem.

Bryce Pardo, a drug policy researcher at the Rand Corporation, said one factor is the drugs themselves. “You can see that there are declines in heroin and prescription opioid overdoses,” Pardo said. “However, there’s an increased year over year increase in synthetic opioid overdose deaths.”
