Office-based procedures position revisedComments: 0 comments
During its review, the Board’s Policy Committee solicited input from insurance companies and a range of medical specialties including plastic surgery, dermatology, obstetrics and gynecology and gastroenterology. Based on the committee’s review and comments received, the statement was reorganized to make it easier to read. In addition, the term “reasonable proximity” was added to the definitions list. Other changes of note include defining 30 minutes as an appropriate distance from a hospital in situations when a licensee must arrange for emergency transfer of a patient during a procedure.
Also at the May meeting, the Board reviewed and accepted, without changes, the position statement entitled, Sale of goods from physician offices.
