    An Exclusive Look at Vaccine Mandates: Who Gets the Shot, and Who Doesn’t?

    The Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination Mandates are out! What entities are included under the regulations, and which are excluded?

    Facilities and physician practices have been doing everything they can to get staff and providers vaccinated, in fear of losing their provider status with Medicare and their funds being interrupted. But what organizations really must abide by these requirements under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs)? Hospitals? Physician Offices? Skilled nursing facilites (SNFs)? Home health agencies? Assisted living facilities?

    To highlight the correct information on where your organization stands and the impact it will have, please join us for the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays on Nov. 16, during which nationally recognized physician coder, auditor, and educator Terry Fletcher will update us on all this and more.

    What in the World is a Medical Assistant?

    What in the World is a Medical Assistant?

    What can a medical assistant do – and not do?
    Medical assistants have a narrow list of tasks they can perform for patients or for a doctor in a doctor's office. It's often difficult to know what's allowed, because there are not strong laws or regulations in place regarding medical assistants.
    Since no one really “regulates” them, and they are frighteningly under-monitored by any sort of government agency, what rules should they follow?
    In the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Terry Fletcher, a nationally recognized professional coder, auditor, and educator, will return to the broadcast with an exclusive report on best practices for medical assistants, but also the imperative admonition: they should not be mistakenly used as nurses.
    The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

Today’s episode 434

Overall I thought it was just okay because while most segments were very good, I didn’t understand what Dr Foggle was trying to accomplish. Your notes said he was going to give an update on COVID 19 but it seemed all he did was question the President’s doctors and their treatments. If he wants to be an analyst for a tv network and stir up conflict what he was doing might have been ok, but I was disappointed you gave him a forum on your podcast to spew his opinion. I expect more from a professional medical podcast

VACCINE HESITANCY WARFARE NOW?

This site has become a WHO and CDC mouthpiece. And the “facts” stated are opinions that are filled with the “buzzwords” and ridiculous recommendations. The use of words like “battle” and “war” against those who do not take the vaccine is dangerous and a precursor to discrimination. Where is our freedom to control my own body and make my own medical decisions? The moral high grounding over those who have or are going to take the vaccine is insulting of my intelligence. The current vaccines were tested on people for two months in small samples and not tested on animals. And there has never been a successful coronavirus vaccine created for the previous coronaviruses.
Your diversity lie was also insulting. Look at the low statistics in Africa where the draconian mandates are not being undertaken.

No, I do not trust you as you jump to the edicts of Dr. FAUCI and the WHO. You don’t cite your sources and express in your facts as opinions and I will no longer listen.
Stop the fear mongering!!

Good Info, Annoying intro

I find the oldtimey radio intro and delivery style really annoying. It’s great industry info, just the way it’s delivered is not my style. Keep it straight
