1 New Jersey Podiatric Medical Society MARCH/APRIL 2003 NJ SENATE PASSES CAP GAP FUND BY A WIDE MARGIN Professional Liability Reform Moves Forward By Laurie A. Clark NJPMS Lobbyist After several months of intense negotiations, SCS 2174/1570/A-50 was finally approved on March 20 TH by the New Jersey Senate with a vote of ( 33-4 ). The vote was strong, decisive and bi-partisan in nature. This substitute, designated as the "New Jersey Medical Care Access and Responsibility and Patients First Act," provides for a comprehensive set of reforms affecting the state's tort liability system, health care system and medical malpractice liability insurance. The approach contained in this bill sets a national precedent by providing a reform package that balances the needs of all stakeholders involved in this process. The bill, approved by the New Jersey Senate, includes the establishment of a CAP GAP FUND for jury awards over $300,000 with an upper limit of $1 million. The fund will be known as the Medical Malpractice Insurance Excess Fund. Revenue for the fund, is provided for by an annual surcharge of $3 per employee for all employers who are subject to the New Jersey "Unemployment Compensation Law." The bill also provides for an annual surcharge of $50 on the professional licenses of physicians, podiatrists, dentists, chiropractors, optometrists and attorneys. AFFIDAVIT OF NON-INVOLVEMENT- A health care provider named as a defendant in a medical malpractice action may file an affidavit of noninvolvement with the court. The affidavit of noninvolvement shall set forth the facts that demonstrate that the provider was misidentified or otherwise not involved, individually or through its servants or employees, in the care and treatment of the claimant, and was not obligated, either individually or through its servants or employees, to provide for the care and treatment of the claimant. The substitute provides penalties for false statements made in the affidavit or in challenging the affidavit. NEW EXPERT WITNESS CRITERIA Qualifications are established for expert witnesses in medical malpractice actions and for the purpose of executing an affidavit of merit. An expert must have the same type of practice and possess the same credentials, as applicable, as the defendant health care provider, unless waived by the court. The substitute also provides that an opinion given in expert testimony or in an affidavit as to the appropriate standard of practice or care shall demonstrate the existence of that standard through the production of tangible evidence. The substitute prohibits expert witnesses from testifying on a contingency fee basis and provides for penalties for expert witnesses who intentionally misrepresent the applicable standard of practice or care. PHYSICIAN JOINT PURCHASING ALLIANCE ESTABLISHED for the purpose of negotiating a reduced medical malpractice liability insurance premium, the bill permits physicians to join together, by means of a joint contract, to form a "Medical Malpractice Liability Insurance Purchasing Alliance". (Continued on page 8) Highlights of the Tort Liability Reforms are as follows: NEW STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS - The bill provides that actions by or on behalf of a minor that have accrued for medical malpractice shall be tolled until the minor's 11th birthday. An action, by or on behalf of a minor who has reached his 9th birthday by the effective date of the new law, that has accrued for medical malpractice for injuries sustained prior to the effective date, shall begin within four years of the effective date, except that no such action shall be commenced after the person's 20th birthday. Connecting The NJPMS will be hosting a local phone-athon on June 18 th at the office. Regional advertising of this event should generate a significant number of phone calls. In addition, to the Board of Trustee members who will man the phones to answer podiatric related questions, we invite all interested members to the office on a first-rsvp basis, as space is limited. We are also seeking additional sponsorship of this educational program in order to be able to advertise on a statewide level. Please call the office with the names of any interested companies who will receive acknowledgement of their support. Please respond ASAP! Thank you.

2 The President s Message By Robert Warkala, DPM For Members Only Happy Spring! Fortunately the toughest winter in recent memory is behind us and warmer and brighter days lie ahead. The winter weather did not prevent us from completing pre-arranged programs. Our CME Committee presented a diverse and well attended seminar on Feb. 26th. I am confident that NJPMS will continue to be a major provider of quality CME programs as we enter the initial SBME biennial period in October (Remember the NJPMS program at Region III and the Podiatry Institute/NJPMS program in October.) In March, NJPMS members provided foot screenings at the state house in Trenton and at the Diabetes Expo in Somerset. The state house screening allowed legislators and their staffers to learn about their foot and ankle problems, and provided us the opportunity to educate them about podiatric medicine and surgery. In Somerset, our volunteer doctors were kept busy the entire time and provided countless referrals to NJPMS members. Our presence at the Expo also strengthened our relations with the NJ component of the American Diabetes Association (a no-brainer). I would like to extend a special thanks to the doctors who volunteered their time, and to Mr. Hammerschmidt and the office staff for coordinating these events. Looking ahead to April, the NJPMS leadership will remain quite busy. The NJ delegation travels to the APMA House of Delegates with specific goals. It is our hope to have Dr. Chris Robertozzi elected as treasurer of APMA and to pass substantial resolutions that are sponsored by NJPMS. We continue to monitor the evolution of legislation regarding malpractice reform. A Senate bill that includes a cap of $300k for non-economic damages seems likely to pass in the Senate but will face stiff opposition in the Assembly. Look for another physician work slow down rally in late April or May if Assembly passage is uncertain. Finally, please remember that HIPAA requirements begin April 14, The APMA s HIPAA manual is available online at and is an excellent resource. Additional HIPAA materials will be available to NJPMS members through our legal counsel, Kern, Augustine, et al, or at I look forward to seeing many of you at Region III and at our own House of Delegates meeting in May. Happy Spring! New Corporate Member Jumps on Board Practice Alternatives, Inc. (PAI), of Eatontown has, as of March, become a gold member in the NJPMS Corporate Membership Program. The contact person for PAI is Mr. Phil Grassia, at PAI and its family has, since 1982, effectively worked in partnership with healthcare providers and their staffs, providing essential administrative and technical support services such as: custom billing, cost effective transcription service and custom designed support services. Those members who attended the recent February seminar may have already met Mr. Grassia. Additionally, many of our members already utilize their services. I urge you to contact them or stop by their booth at Region III in May. We appreciate their support and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

Gail Rounds Manager, Provider Education & Training Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Update CMS will cover hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy for diabetic wounds beginning April 1, CMS issued a National Coverage Decision for this treatment last year. To qualify for coverage, the patient must have a lower extremity wound that is due to diabetes (ICD-9-CM diagnosis, 250.7, 250.8, 707, 707.1, , , , and ): the wound must be classified as Wagner Grade III or higher; and standard wound therapy for at least 30 days has been unsuccessful. CMS created two Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes to use: (physician attendance and supervision of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, per session and C1300 (hyperbaric oxygen under pressure, fully body chamber, per 30 minute interval). Code 1300 is only for use in a hospital outpatient department. See the CMS program memorandum specifying the coverage policy and coding for this treatment at the following website: pm_trans/ab02183.pdf 54th Annual Region Three Conference Approaches By Barry G. Wolff, DPM, Convention Manager Just a reminder, the Region Three Conference will be held from May 13th -16th, 2003, at the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. I would like to focus on the program on Tuesday, May 13th. Once again, we have received an unrestricted educational grant from Otsuka American Pharmaceuticals (they are the manufacturers of Pletal, (a drug used for intermittent claudication and wound healing). The program is entitled: Podiatric Medicine and Vascular Disease: A-State-of-the-Art-Update. The course director is Dr. Michael Jaff. The presenters include: Anthony Comerota, MD, director Jobst Vascular Center; Bruce Mintz, DO, Director Vascular Laboratory, St. Clare s Medical Center; Robert Schainfeld, DO, Director of Vascular Medicine at St. Elizabeth s Medical Center and Baur Sumpio, MD, Chief of Vascular Surgery at Yale University School of Medicine. As you can see, this is a very impressive array of vascular medical specialists who will provide a very impressive day long program. The program will be augmented with an interactive audience component. For those of you who are not familiar with this concept, it is the same type of system that is used on the show: Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? Each attendee will receive a remote unit with numbers and letters. When the lecturer asks a question, the audience responds by selecting the appropriate button. An instant chart or graph will indicate the audience s response. Lunch will be provided by Otsuka, as well as a refreshment break and cocktail reception. All this, in addition to the rest of the conference (Track I) is included in the registration fee of $95.00 for members in good standing who register before April 28th. (continued on page 8)

Creating a Bigger Pie By Harvey Karpo, DPM, President-Elect We need to continually educate the public as to who we are and what we do as the specialists of the foot and ankle. At two recent foot screenings not only did our volunteer NJPMS members examine and educate over 110 potential new patients to the value of podiatric care but also provided over 100 referrals for these individuals and their families. Referrals were made based on the proximity of member practitioners to the homes of those needing referrals. The Legislative Foot Screening at the state house on March 13 th involved approximately 50 employees, legislators, and their aides. We wish to thank Drs. Franceschini, Kaplan, Karpo, Killian, McAnespey, McGuigan, Mangel, and Warkala for their time and efforts at this event. Special thanks to Etonic for sponsoring the event and displaying their exciting line of diabetic therapeutic footwear! At the Diabetes Expo in Somerset on March 15 th, over 60 diabetics were screened, given some guidance on preventative foot care, and appropriate referrals to NJPMS member podiatrists for treatment. Numerous others requested, and were given, referrals to podiatrists. Thanks go out to Drs. Robert Warkala, George Nassoor, Phil Tutnauer, Ira Schiowitz, Norman Heifitz, Harvey Karpo and his wife Agnes and Herman Hammerschmidt, our executive director and his wife, Chris, for their time and efforts at this very busy event of over 3,000 attendees. Don t discount the value of these screenings to your practice! A few hours spent in your community will help to increase the mere 5-8 percent of the population-at-large who utilize podiatric services. Volunteer for your profession and help your practices, and our profession will grow! Call the office to get info and assistance in setting up regular foot screenings in your communities. Work with your local hospitals, senior centers, even a local pharmacy or medical supplier to increase foot health awareness and the podiatrist s invaluable contribution to a good quality of life. The public will never know what we do until we show them our expertise.

6 (Continued from page 1) NJ Senate Passes Cap Gap Fund NEW DEDUCTIBLES MUST BE OFFERED BY INSURERS - Individual or group medical malpractice liability insurance policies shall be offered with a deductible, at the option of the insured, in an amount of at least $10,000 per claim and up to $1 million per claim. The deductibles offered by an insurer shall be subject to the approval of the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance. For policies with a deductible of $15,000 or greater, the insurer would be responsible for payment of the deductible and would be reimbursed for that amount by the insured. NEW PREMIUM INCREASE CRITERIA The bill provides that an insurer shall not increase the premium of any medical malpractice liability insurance policy based on a claim of medical negligence or malpractice against the insured unless the claim results in a medical malpractice claim settlement, judgment or arbitration award against the insured or the cost of defending against the claim exceeds $15,000. NEW PREMIUM INCREASE CRITERIA The bill provides that an insurer shall not increase the premium of any medical malpractice liability insurance policy based on a claim of medical negligence or malpractice against the insured unless the claim results in a medical malpractice claim settlement, judgment or arbitration award against the insured or the cost of defending against the claim exceeds $15,000. INSTALLMENT PAYMENT OPTION MUST BE OFFERED BY INSURERS - The bill requires medical malpractice liability insurers to offer its insured the option to make premium payments in installments, as prescribed by the commissioner, by regulation. As most are aware, the New Jersey General Assembly previously passed A50 (Cohen/Roberts) a proposal that was substantially different from the Senate bill. The bill now requires a full Assembly floor vote for concurrence. As of this writing, the Legislature is not scheduled to return until May. We need to keep the grassroots efforts strong and ongoing in order to convince the Assembly Leaders to come on board. The fight goes on!
