COA Thanks CMS for Major Telehealth Expansion Allowing Community Providers to Continue Cancer Treatment During Pandemic

Significant Expansion of Telehealth Services Provides a Vital Lifeline to Patients with Cancer Whose Treatment Cannot Stop

We can't thank CMS and Administrator Verma enough for quickly moving these changes forward that will dramatically help oncology providers treat patients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

— Ted Okon, executive director of COA

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 / — The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) applauds the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for new flexibilities to telehealth regulations and rules that will allow community oncology providers to dramatically expand safe cancer treatment during the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) global pandemic. This major expansion of telehealth services and relaxation of regulations provides a huge boost to the ability of community practices to care for patients with cancer whose treatment cannot stop.

The new regulatory relief and rules from CMS are extensive and include the ability for providers to furnish 80 more services via telehealth and to bill for telehealth visits at the same rate as in-person visits. Additionally, CMS has made it clear that providers can now evaluate patients who have audio-only phone systems, an immense easing of burdens for those patients who might not have access to, or are not comfortable with, advanced technology.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a major reorganization and restructuring of cancer care in America. CMS’ rapid response to the crisis in recent weeks means that patients with cancer, many of whom are Medicare seniors with compromised immune systems that are most at risk of infection, can continue to receive cancer treatments while staying safe.

For example, thanks to telehealth, a community oncology practice in Oregon has been able to treat an 81-year-old patient with a new diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. That person is being managed remotely, with labs drawn at the patient’s residence center. Weekly virtual telehealth meetings allow the physician to track how the patient is doing, ensuring they receive needed cancer care in a safe, cost-efficient setting.

A community oncology practice in North Texas also reports that telemedicine is allowing it to spare rural patients with long drives into urban areas that have seen COVID-19 outbreaks. This is not only reducing lengthy travel times but also greatly reduces their risk of exposure to the virus. Just this week, because of the new Medicare telehealth policies, the practice has been able to help a new patient with liver disease avoid a 133-mile drive as well as coordinate with other specialists for their cancer care.

Community oncology can't thank CMS and Administrator Seema Verma enough for quickly moving these changes forward that will dramatically help oncology providers diagnose and monitor their patients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. CMS has demonstrated an amazing ability to cut through the red tape of Medicare bureaucracy and speed up these critically important changes. They are right on target in providing a veritable lifeline to Americans who are struggling with cancer in the midst of crisis.

Across the country, independent community oncology practices have risen to the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to serve as cancer care providers for millions of patients. As the providers of cancer care to the majority of patients in America, now more than ever, it is crucial that community oncology practices stay open and active for patients as cancer and cancer care do not stop during times of national emergencies. The expansion of telehealth options and reduction of regulatory burdens are important steps that allow practices to do that while also keeping patients safe and healthy.


About the Community Oncology Alliance (COA): The majority of Americans battling cancer receive treatment in the community oncology setting. Keeping patients close to their homes, families, and support networks lessens the impact of this devastating disease. Community oncology practices do this while delivering high-quality, cutting-edge cancer care at a fraction of the cost of the hospital setting. The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) advocates for community oncology and smart public policy that ensures the community cancer care system remains healthy and able to provide all Americans with access to local, quality, affordable cancer care.

Export Standby Letter of Credit

bank instruments

Export Standby Letter of Credit

SWITZERLAND, March 31, 2020 / — Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is a legal document that guarantees a bank's commitment of payment to a seller in the event that the buyer–or the bank's client–defaults on the agreement. The Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) helps facilitate international trade between companies that don't know each other and have different laws and regulations. The Standby Letter of Credit can also be abbreviated SBLC.

How a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) Works : Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is most often sought by a business to help it obtain a contract. The contract is a "standby" agreement because the bank will have to pay only in a worst-case scenario. Although an SBLC guarantees payment to a seller, the agreement must be followed exactly.

There are two main types of Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC):

The Financial SBLC guarantees payment for goods or services as specified by an agreement. An oil refining company, for example, might arrange for such a letter to reassure a seller of crude oil that it can pay for a huge delivery of crude oil.

The performance SBLC , which is less common, guarantees that the client will complete the project outlined in a contract. The bank agrees to reimburse the third party in the event that its client fails to complete the project.

Benefits Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC):

▪ The Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is often seen in contracts involving international trade, which tend to involve a large commitment of money and have added risks.

▪ Avoid or secure advance payment.

▪ Obtain Credit.

▪ Secure compensation for non-fulfillment of important obligation.

▪ The banks involved will act according to the internationally accepted rules of the International Chamber of Commerce.

Common Use of Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC)- Advance payment guarantees – Payment guarantees – Performance guarantees.

Security in Foreign Trading:

Offer your trading partner a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) to secure the fulfillment of your company's obligations under the agreement. This way your trading partner knows that you are a reliable cooperation partner.

Use Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) for managing foreign trade risks.

Creative ways one mom has stepped up to help neighbors, community and restaurants due to Covid-19 pandemic

Bonnie and Patrick Kearns and family

Sarah Stegner, co-owner and co-chef, Prairie Grass Cafe in Northbrook IL

Prairie Grass Cafe logo

Bonnie Kearns didn’t want to feel helpless. Knowing that her neighborhood was homebound with concerns of the Corona Covid 19 virus, she kicked into action.

GLENVIEW, IL, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2020 / — Bonnie Kearns of Glenview IL is extraordinary. She didn’t want to feel helpless and knowing that her neighborhood was homebound with concerns of the Corona Covid 19 virus, she kicked into action.

“It takes a village. It really does. Our little block in Glenview is just one component in the quarantine,” she said in a recent interview.

In efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, moms have been texting each about limited trips to the grocery store. Every other day, someone "takes one for the team" and makes the dreaded trip. “Asking everyone if they need anything, deliveries are dropped off on porches in plastic bags and we send a quick text that food and paper towels have arrived.”

We're relieved we don't have to face the impending doom of touching doors, credit card machines, carts, anything outside of our control for just another day.

Our new normal:
• Cooking every meal became exhausting quickly. It is difficult to figure out what to make. “I felt like a failure,” says Bonnie. I was staring at a box of Mac & Cheese and felt like raising a flag in defeat. Then I received an email from Prairie Grass Cafe regarding curbside pickup and Sarah Stegner's cooking tip hotline, 847-920-8437 and Rohit Nambiar's selection of delicious reasonably priced wines to complement the food. Since I knew the neighborhood was suffering, I decided I would order food and wine for my neighbors who weren’t comfortable leaving their homes. I texted moms to take a break from cooking tomorrow and that we would have pot roast and wine delivered to their doors with Clorox-wiped delivery boxes. This snowballed with other opportunities to help.

• Sarah Stegner said "after I got her call, things started to come together for us. I thought it was a great model for how we could sell in large quantities. I thought, wow, I have to let other restaurateurs know to think outside the box to help make curbside and delivery viable. People are picking up for their neighborhoods, too. This may be a solution. We have also added to a neighborhood in Evanston IL and are going to add a couple of high rise buildings in Chicago."

• Bonnie continued: "I knew that medical professionals and first responders desperately needed help. A mom in our Facebook group mentioned that he was trying to boost morale in his office and ordered his employee’s lunch. After reading it twice, I realized it was my pediatrician's office. I was feeling helpless seeking ways I could provide relief to people that so desperately needed it. Bingo. I knew I could order wine from Prairie Grass and have it delivered to their office for the staff. That's what I plan to do. I also plan to order lunch from our neighborhood deli and have it dropped off."

• I had planned a surprise birthday party for my husband at Chicago’s Kaiser Tiger in the West Loop on Saturday, March 14. Obviously, we had to cancel the 40-person dinner with less than a day’s notice. It made me sick to know that servers were depending on the income and the loss to the restaurant would be great. I didn’t care about the deposits or what I was going to be charged; it became so apparent that people weren’t going to be celebrating anything anytime soon. The event planner was completely understanding. The next day, Governor Pritzker issued the stay at home order. After receiving the Prairie Grass Cafe email, I immediately figured out what I could do to help Kaiser Tiger and the people in their area. “Surely, the EMTs, firefighters, urgent care workers, and hospitals in the West Loop had people that needed to eat. Since I have no idea when we would be able to reschedule the party, I asked the restaurant to use the money for a better, more worthwhile cause and did not ask for a refund, said Bonnie.

Other suggestions from Bonnie:
• Larger businesses and their customers that can afford to forgo their event deposits could use the money towards a greater cause.

o Catering contracts for events that are happening in the next 1-3 months likely had 50% or more of the costs already due and are non-refundable.

o We can creatively rethink how that lost deposit can be used for other things – a credit to that restaurant in gift cards, catered lunch or meals for the less fortunate or neighborhood hospitals, doctors' offices, fire departments and other essential businesses that are staying open during this time. Anything to let these restaurants keep that revenue and perhaps put it towards the people that need it now. Not in 5 months. Now.

“Like so many brave men and women who don the cloth of our nation, our members have endured numerous crises throughout their long military careers,” said Robert Wray, President of TFGON, and a retired Navy Rear Admiral. “We understand that we are but one small voice in this national conversation. But we want to assure our fellow citizens that, while COVID-19 has presented us with an unprecedented challenge, we as a nation will be okay, and that we’ll get through it together.”

Prefabricated Modular Steel Panel Hospital Intensive Care Units (ICU's)

Intensive Care Units (ICU’s)

ICU Front View

Isolation Room with Negative Pressure HEPA Filtration & UV Light

Prefabricated Modular Steel Panel Hospital Intensive Care Units (ICU's) & Modular Isolation Rooms & Negative Pressure Rooms with HEPA Filter & UV Light Options

We have 330 million persons in the USA. In 12-18 months, 1% of the population (if tested) may be infected with COVID-19. If proper protocol is followed, millions of isolation units may be needed.””

— M.R. Secure Sales LLC Spokeman

MANALAPAN, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2020 / — Panel Built has introduced Prefabricated Modular Steel Panel Hospital Intensive Care Units (ICU's) and Prefabricated Modular Hospital Isolation Rooms along with Negative Pressure Rooms, to help hospitals due to room shortages caused by the COVID-19 surge. Steel panel rooms have multiple uses and can be customized and adapted for for the individual hospital needs.
Panel Built, modular construction provider for 25 years, now offers a way for medical facilities to create and expand their infectious patient isolation areas with modular Isolation rooms. With the growing Coronavirus pandemic spreading across the United States and internationally, Panel Built’s modular isolation rooms are a convenient solution for hospitals that need to increase their single-occupancy, isolation space as quickly as possible. Using a panelized wall system, the isolation rooms are fully fabricated in Panel Built’s modular construction facilities. The components are then delivered and assembled on site. This design allows for prefabricated, quickly assembled isolation rooms that have fully customized layouts and designs.

Panel Built’s ICU's and isolation rooms offer options, (where situations warrant), for HVAC systems with fan filter units (FFUs) to keep the room at appropriate temperatures and constantly filter particles with HEPA filtration and UV light from the environment’s air supply with the numerous air exchanges per hour. Patient isolation rooms can be customized with a negative pressure environment for patients who may have an impaired immune system and may be a carrier for other infectious diseases that are airborne spread along with the droplet Coronavirus. Diseases such as TB, Measles, Mumps, Varicella and other respiratory infections fall into the airborne category. When the negative pressure isolation room is needed, the air pressure inside the isolation room is lower than entrance ante room to keep air flowing into the patient isolation room instead of out, keeping any contaminants or particles from escaping the room. All isolation rooms should be used in conjunction with proper staff and equipment sanitizing and hospital contamination control procedures.

Panel Built’s Steve Grzesik, Sales Manager Welded Steel Division, stated, "While Panel Built is a for-profit company, our first objective is to help our nation and others meet the challenge and help save lives. Our nation's largest hospitals and long term care centers will need all the isolation bed space they can get, and Panel Built is ready to help meet the need."

M.R. Secure Sales LLC spokesman stated the following, " There are 330 million persons in the USA. Predictions are, over the next 12-18 months, approximately 1% of the USA population (if tested) may be infected with the Coronavirus. If proper protocol is to be followed, millions of isolation rooms may be needed in the USA alone. The nations largest hospitals in total, may have fewer than several thousand isolation rooms. "
