    The Commonwealth of Massachusetts today officially declared Jan. 30-Feb. 5 Physician Anesthesiologist Week through a proclamation put forward by Gov. Charles D. Baker.

    Physician anesthesiologists are recognized leaders who are committed to high quality and safe patient care, educating patients on anesthesia safety, and reducing risks of complications before, during, and after surgery.

    Physician Anesthesiologist Week, celebrated every year by the American Society of Anesthesiologists, recognizes the profession and its contributions to health care. Throughout the week, members will meet with policymakers highlighting key issues, including the importance of patient-centered, physician-led anesthesia care, connect with local media, and share members’ accomplishments and objectives around patient care and patient advocacy on social media platforms.

    The Massachusetts Society of Anesthesiology (MSA) is a statewide organization invested in advancing progress, seeking the betterment of physicians, and to uphold and promote the principles and purposes of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA). Throughout the week, anesthesiologists will participate in various activities and work to raise awareness of the profession.

    Bulletin released by the Department of Public Health on January 3rd - implements Chapter 260 of the Acts of 2020 Notice and Disclosure Requirements for Health Care Providers.

    Specifically, the Bulletin details new requirements for health care providers and health care facilities to notify patients about charges and payments for proposed admissions, procedures, services, and referrals that are specific to the patient’s insurance carrier. These requirements take effect on January 1, 2022, and also authorize the Department of Public Health, consistent with its authority to regulate health care providers, to penalize providers who fail to comply with a penalty up to $2,500 for each instance of non-compliance. These penalties will take effect July 1, 2022.


    ·      PROVIDERS: Healthcare Provider Disclosure Obligations related to Scheduling Admissions, Procedures or Services, or Making Referrals to Another Provider.

    ·       PATIENTS: Learn More About “Patients First” – a new law which requires your health care provider to give you more information about charges for hospital stays, medical procedures, healthcare services, or referrals.

    Americans place a high value on the quality of their health care, and surveys have shown most prefer physicians to be in charge of their care. As a physician anesthesiologist, high-quality patient care matters above all. This week is Physician Anesthesiologists Week. Learn more about the importance of patient safety today.
