CMS Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program Meeting


CMS has important resources for the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) and has a special Q&A session scheduled for Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 1:00 PM CST.

They are particularly interested in reaching primary care physicians, in hopes that they refer their pre-diabetic patients to the MDPP. The MDPP expanded model is structured behavior change intervention that aims to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes among Medicare beneficiaries with an indication of prediabetes. The CMS team will answer questions related to eligibility, enrollment, billing and claims.

Lung Cancer and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting

This course will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic.

Lung Cancer and COVID-19 in the Outpatient Setting: What Clinicians Need to Know

Patients with underlying health conditions such as lung cancer are at greater risk for infection or complications from COVID-19. Because of this increased risk, it is important that these patients are carefully managed, with telemedicine replacing in-person visits where possible. However, monitoring patients via telemedicine requires special attention, particularly because symptoms of COVID-19 infection are similar to common adverse events associated with lung cancer treatment.

This course will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic, including information on the pathophysiology of Sars-Cov-2, the risk of infection in patients with lung cancer, and strategies to manage patient care and counsel through telemedicine. Some topics covered:

  • The Pathophysiology of COVID-19
  • Patient and Disease Features that Increase Risk of COVID-19 Infection and Complications in Patients with Lung Cancer
  • Recommendations for Managing Patients with Lung Cancer in the COVID-19 Pandemic

From one-off issues to complex and encompassing bills, our advocacy team aims to shape the output of the 112th General Assembly.

Stethescope Icon

Scope of Practice

TMA leads the perennial fight to keep Tennessee physicians supervising patient care and to prevent inappropriate scope of practice expansion by mid-level healthcare providers.

Balance Billing

Opioids

Our work spans from Federal and state Prescriber laws, to member-only guidance, including our cautionary Doctor Shopping Guide.

As physicians, it’s clear we don’t drive the healthcare car, but maybe we will be able to argue for the passenger seat up front instead of being kidnapped in the trunk. TMA can help us.
