What You Need to Know

With the new Administration finishing its first week of business and the 115th Congress beginning its legislative work, Capitol Hill is already bustling at the helm. At the forefront are a number of White House-issued executive orders on a range of issues from immigration to a federal employee freeze, as well as the ongoing and contentious debate surrounding the Republican-led repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Our country is in a time of transition, which can lead to uncertainty, and educating policymakers has never been more critical. AACOM continues to strongly advocate for federal programs of importance to osteopathic medical education (OME), such as the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education Program, which provides vital funding to support primary care medical and dental residency training in underserved rural and urban areas across the country. Although the funding for this program was extended through the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, it expires at the end of September. AACOM is advocating for the reauthorization of this crucial program and will be calling on you in the coming months to join with us in this important effort.

Additionally, AACOM continues to support the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA). Earlier this week, Chair Virginia Foxx (R-NC), who’s signaled that HEA reauthorization is a top committee priority this year, convened the House Education and Workforce Committee. The Republican-led agenda includes many issues of importance to osteopathic medical schools and their students, including federal student loans, higher education regulations, and executive actions taken by the previous Administration. Therefore, we urge you to join and get involved with AACOM’s ED to MED campaign and demand that Congress protect the financial health of the future physician workforce.  

Now more than ever, your voice will be a compelling and powerful means to further empower the OME community to create change and impact the legislators who are making decisions about your future.

Legislative
 Update

On The Hill

President's USDE Secretary Pick Appears Before Senate HELP

On January 17, the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee held its confirmation hearing for Betsy DeVos, President Trump’s nominee to head the U.S. Department of Education (USDE), after a previous delay due to an incomplete background check related to DeVos’ financial holdings, which was later approved.

Noise around DeVos’ confirmation hearing has been especially contentious, as her performance during the hearing has been widely considered as lackluster and concerning. She was unable to answer questions in regard to protecting students with disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, in which she seemed to be unaware of this federal requirement for states to provide services to these students. She also struggled to answer questions regarding whether test-based accountability for schools should measure students’ proficiency levels or growth in learning over time. It still remains unclear where DeVos stands on graduate education policy.      

Subsequent to the hearing, HELP Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA) pressed for a second hearing, contending that the Committee would need more time to further question DeVos about her qualifications and potential conflicts of interest. However, HELP Chair Lamar Alexander (R-TN), a strong supporter of DeVos, has denied the request. The Committee has announced it will forge ahead with its confirmation vote on January 31. DeVos’ nomination is expected to narrowly proceed along partisan lines. 

Trump’s HHS Secretary Nominee Appears Before Senate Finance Committee

Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), President Trump’s pick to head the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), appeared before the Senate Finance Committee on January 24, as the second leg of his confirmation process following his courtesy hearing before the Senate HELP Committee on January 18. The hearings have not proceeded without some heat over ethics concerns regarding Rep. Price’s alleged use of insider information when purchasing stocks while working on related legislation.

While Rep. Price did not provide specifics for the replacement of the ACA during the Senate Finance Committee hearing, he has expressed support for “access to affordable health insurance for all Americans” as well as preservation of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation; although, he has stated it has veered “off track.” Rep. Price now awaits the Senate Finance Committee’s vote on sending his nomination to the full Senate, which is expected to take place in February.

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearings for OMB Nominee

On January 24, both the Senate Budget and Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committees held confirmation hearings on President Trump’s nomination of Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) as Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The two Senate committees have joint jurisdiction over the nomination to OMB, and have not yet announced when they will vote on Rep. Mulvaney’s nomination. If confirmed, Congressman Mulvaney, a founding member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, would oversee all facets of the federal budget and have significant influence in determining spending levels of federal agencies. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Democratic committee members have voiced strong opposition to Rep. Mulvaney’s nomination. However, he has strong support from Republican committee members.

Senate Confirmation Hearing Announced for VA Secretary Nominee

The Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, which has sole jurisdiction over the nomination to head the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), has scheduled its hearing for David J. Shulkin, MD, to take place on February 1. President Trump’s nominee for VA Secretary currently serves as the agency’s Under Secretary for Health.

ACA Repeal and Replacement Underway

Following the passage of the fiscal year (FY) 2017 budget resolution earlier this month, with Republicans at the helm for repealing the ACA, a flurry of proposals to replace the health care law have been generated. Although the resolution directed several congressional committees in both chambers of Congress to have produced deficit-cutting legislation to their budget committees by January 27, Republicans did not meet the deadline, which has now passed. After a three-day GOP retreat in Philadelphia, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced that Republicans will have until the end of this year to pass a replacement package, which will likely impact their timeline of overhauling the health care law.

Regulatory Update

Administration and Federal Agencies

NHSC Loan Repayment Opportunities – Open Now

Qualified clinicians may now apply for two loan repayment assistance opportunities through the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). The FY 2017 Loan Repayment Program (LRP) offers up to $50,000 in student loan repayment assistance in exchange for a two-year service commitment to work at an NHSC-approved site in a high-need, underserved area. 

In addition, the NHSC is offering loan repayment assistance for clinicians that commit to provide care at an NHSC-approved site affected by the Zika virus or other vector-borne diseases. Through the FY 2017 NHSC Zika LRP, awardees may receive up to $70,000 in exchange for a three-year service commitment. Although some health care providers may be eligible for both programs, separate applications are required. To be considered for the FY 2017 cycle, the deadline to apply for both programs is 7:30 PM ET on April 6, 2017.  

President Trump Signs Executive Order; Sends Memos to Federal Agencies

On January 20, President Trump’s first day in office, he signed an executive order “minimizing the economic burden” of the ACA. The action directs the Secretary of HHS and heads of federal agencies to act within their authority to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” provisions that may cause a fiscal burden to states. Although the order does not provide specific details, it does state the Administration’s policy to seek “prompt repeal” of the law.  

Additionally, President Trump’s Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, sent a memo to the heads of executive departments and federal agencies placing a freeze on all pending federal regulations. This is effective until executive leaders, as appointed or designated by President Trump, are in place and have reviewed the regulations. For those regulations that have been published, but have not taken effect, the memo places a hold on the implementation date for 60 days. There are some exemptions to the regulatory freeze.

The President has also halted the hiring of federal civilian employees. In a memo sent to federal departments on January 23, President Trump ordered that “no vacant positions as of noon on January 22 may be filled and no new positions may be created, except in limited circumstances.” This freeze does not apply to the military. 

USDE Issues ‘Procedural’ Final Rule for Borrower Defense to Repayment Regulation

USDE recently released its final rule governing the process and institutional recovery proceedings under the borrower defense regulations. Effective immediately, the procedures help ensure that claims are resolved fairly and efficiently for all parties, and that institutions are protected by due process of law through an administrative hearing process, overseen by a designated USDE official. Institutions may appeal the decision of the hearing official to the USDE Secretary for further consideration. 

The USDE finalized the comprehensive regulatory policy on borrower defense last fall, and AACOM submitted comments on the initial proposal. AACOM will continue to monitor and provide updates should the Trump Administration issue policy impacting the implementation of this regulation.  

Francis Collins to Stay at NIH

The Trump Administration recently announced that Francis Collins, MD, PhD will continue as the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) temporarily. It is not yet clear if Dr. Collins will be permanently reappointed. Dr. Collins was originally appointed by President Obama in 2009, and he previously served as Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute – a department of NIH.

Do you want to earn clinical shadowing hours? Or receive a complete test preparation course for the DAT/GRE/MCAT/PCAT at no cost to you? The deadline to apply for the Tennessee Institutes for Pre-Professionals (TIP) summer program is approaching quickly!

 

What is TIP?

 

TIP is a seven-week summer program designed to increase the representation of underrepresented groups in the healthcare professions.

TIP is divided into two tracks:

·         Track I provides a primary care internship in a clinical setting and is primarily for freshmen and sophomores

·         Track II provides a complete admission test preparation course and is primarily for juniors and above

Additionally, all TIP students participate in various personal and professional development workshops and activities.

 

And we can’t forget to mention that this is a paid summer opportunity – all TIP students receive a stipend and housing is provided for non-Memphis resident at no cost.

 

The online application can be found on our website at http://www.uthsc.edu/hcp – there is no cost to apply and the application deadline is February 15th. If you have any additional questions, please contact the TIP staff at hcp@uthsc.edu or (901) 448-8772.

It is our mission to prepare the next generation of individuals to become culturally competent and relevant healthcare professionals and educators who are academically disciplined, grounded in pertinent research and training, emphatically attuned to the needs of the communities in which they will enter, cognizant of health care disparities which exists within medically underserved populations, and socially equipped to address these issues professionally, medically, and altruistically.
