The 2020 Legislative Session adjourned Sine Die on Thursday, March 19 after extending the Session for purposes of passing a budget.
This was indeed a rough and tumble Session with many issues addressed including attempts to, once again, tie your reimbursement for pathology services to a percentage of Medicare which ultimately failed passage. However, one of the most significant issues that House Leadership has pushed unsuccessfully for eight years, the autonomous practice of APRN’s and test and treat allowances for pharmacists, was ultimately passed and immediately signed by the governor.
We are particularly excited to spotlight Margaret "Meg" Neal, MD, who won the President’s Service award at the FSP's 46th Annual Pathology Conference in Orlando, Florida. President Morton H. Levitt, MD awarded Dr. Neal for her many contributions to the advancement and continued success of the FSP over the last decade under her service. Dr. Neal is quoted saying “The best part of being a pathologist is the requirement for broad ever-changing knowledge base dealing with many unique conditions, the work with many clinical specialties and colleagues, and the close association with other pathologists I work with, all for the best care of our patients.” To read Dr. Neal’s full member spotlight visit the FSP website here.
