COVID-19 Statement of MSNJ President, Marc J. Levine, MD
Monday, March 16, 2020
Today, the NJ Assembly passed legislation to allow a physician to treat any appropriate condition via telemedicine and be paid for covered services. We expect the Senate will follow suit shortly.
This is a critical aspect of keeping physicians and allied health professionals safe. We have also listed some video conferencing vendors you can easily contact if you don’t have the ability to see patients virtually right now.
As the number of confirmed cases increases over the next few weeks, please contact your state medical society with problems, concerns or successes you are encountering in the delivery of healthcare services to your patients. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our member resource center at 609.896.1766 ext. 0.
MSNJ is being proactive by making all of our meetings virtual and by postponing our previously announced Annual Meeting which was scheduled for May 1 – 2, 2020. More details on the Annual Meeting coming soon.
Thank you for the work you do for your patients every day. Stay safe and be well.
Marc J Levine MD – President.
