  1. So got this in doctor's guide. The first Pic was from yesterday and 2nd Pic is from today.... 1000 ish new deaths in one day? Gotta admit I downplayed this a little before but man... Whew... Praying for our nation and the Frontline of Healthcare personnel. You guys out there working I'm praying for you! (I have been on disability since October so I haven't been practicing...)

  2. I did mine when CAPA sent it out. I hope we get this done... Then after COVID he forgets to revoke it [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Agreed... My daughter 2 weeks ago had a 103*F and a bad cough but no SOB.. I have an autoimmune condition and am currently on prednisone and methotrexate (trial previous immunosuopressants have failed) and have had the flu or flu like sxs 3x in teh last 4 mos. I asked her PCP to test her (Kaiser) they said no because she has no "troubling sxs" I asked for my benefit since I'm immunocompromised and offered to have my Rheumo contact them or they contact her to discuss it... They said even if they spoke to my Rheumo, they were running low on supplies so it is highly unlikely they will test her at all unless she is in distress and taken in to the ER.. My Rheumo toed the company line (she's Kaiser too) and so my daughter completed a 2 week isolation/quarantine in her room. She's better and I'm still using precautions around her. Then I read about all the politicians, celebrities/athletes all getting tested and I'm like WTH? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Wow that sucks... Thank God your wife is not badly hurt and hope she feels better soon. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Man I am laughing my butt off about the ziploc with leaves thing... Are they serious [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. More like a gulag... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. In all fairness some of the leaders in AAPA as of late anyway (especially Mittman) I think have been very pro change. I have spoken with him personally and he is for title change and OTP and perhaps more. There are some mods on the huddle that have something stuck up their... Well I'll say craw... And have deleted valid posts form well intentioned posters. That to me is bullying and that has to stop. The mods there need to be moderated by someone.... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Agree somewhat. Reason I made it #2 is that we can push for it legislatively without necessarily a huge (expensive) national PA (or new title) recognition campaign. But I think these are things that need to be in EVERY AAPA and state chapter meeting agendas. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. Broken record but we need: 1.NAME CHANGE (been screaming this for over 10 years) 2. INDEPENDENCE (Graduated or not but I prefer graduated) 3. PR campaign. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Hey I'm Filipino... EVERYONE assumes I'm a male nurse... Ok so there are a lot of nurses in my family, mom, nieces, cousins etc... Go figure [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. The huddle is a terrible place to get things done. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. You can use one note just separate the two problems/reasons in the HPI and A/P Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Some insurance plans don't allow it. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. There is a way to add it on with a - 25(?) modifier and use 2 E/M codes 1. 993XX (non medi care) or G043X (Medicare) AND 2. 99213 for the sick visit. I used to make them pick one though. Usually address the sick visit then r/s for the AWV. For two reasons. 1. keeps billing from calling me to clarify the superbill and 2. keeps the charting "honest" or clean.
