House Advances PIP/No-fault Repeal
Friday, 12 January 2018
Friday, January 12, 2018, Tallahassee – Late yesterday the full Florida House advanced their version of a bill proposing to repeal Florida’s decades-old no-fault auto insurance system, seeking to replace it with a new at-fault system requiring drivers carry mandatory bodily injury and property damage coverage. The proposal, HB 19 by Rep. Erin Grall (R-Vero Beach), cleared a procedural hurdle referred to in legislative parlance as “Second Reading.” Under Florida’s constitution, each legislative bill must be “read” a total of three times, the second of which includes the introduction and consideration of amendments, plus the answering of members’ questions. Following that review, the bill is then “rolled” to third reading, meaning it then becomes available for final passage by a roll call vote when the body next meets – most likely, later today.

First Coast Service Options (FCSO) Repayment Letters On Medicare Audit Findings
Wednesday, 20 December 2017
The FCA has received confirmation from some members that they have received letters from FCSO requesting repayments on audited claims denied by Strategic Health Solutions (SHS). There has also been at least one notice of additional payments received on codes reported as under coded. There are no reports of the repayments including an extrapolation to all payments made in 2015.
This is VERY good news.
The positive is that there was no extrapolation.  Most chiropractic physicians affected will be dealing with a couple thousand of dollars at most instead of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.

So what should those doctors who were audited do now?

New Research: Increased Heart Rate Variability with Spinal Manipulation
Thursday, 07 December 2017
In addition to reducing the sensitivity of muscle spindles or the segmental sites of a reflex pathway,1 spinal manipulation is thought to affect the neural outputs to both muscle and visceral organs by affecting both paraspinal muscle reflexes and motor neuron excitability.2 A new trial3 sought to determine the effect of spinal manipulative therapy upon both heart rate variability and baroflex sensitivity to add to the body of literature demonstrating the physiological effects of spinal manipulation.
