So are you guys posting this stuff just to stir the pot, or what?
As you know, I've been pretty unbiased regarding the AA issue, and have posted many statements in your favor.
But I'm not sure that posting this old stuff accomplishes anything, especially since there's nothing new here. It sure seems like you're going out of your way to fan the flames.
I'll certainly remember this the next time you guys complain about the being flamed on this board.
I for one was not trying to fan the flames. (except for the comment about the password-protected part of the website
) I was mainly pointing out that it WAS old news, and the final TriCare decision was just released two weeks ago, which georgia_aa may not have been aware of.
The medical direction requirements are fine - 1 on 4 max is not a problem. This has been the norm for us for many years.
Also, in pursuing our cause with TriCare, we did not seek to work in military hospitals, so that point is moot at present.
Finally, we weren't seeking to expand our scope of practice through TriCare. This issue was primarily about reimbursement for TriCare patients being treated in non-military facilities in the states in which we already are in practice.
We're happy with the ruling. Obviously, many of you are as well.
