If this proposal goes through, acupuncturists will be paid about $12 for an hour treatment from Medicare and private insurance companies will follow the fee schedule and reduce their prices significantly. If that happens, your acupuncturists will either stop accepting insurance all together or we go out of business. We have one more day to submit comments. Please voice your opinions if you like your acupuncturists.

This major proposed rule addresses: Changes to the physician fee schedule (PFS); other changes to Medicare Part B payment policies to ensure that payment systems are updated to reflect changes in medical practice, relative value of services, and changes in the statute; Medicare Shared Savings...

Good afternoon.

Since new COVID-19 cases in Nassau County has been low and the numbers are between 36 and 107 in September so far, I would like to start seeing patients in both of my treatment rooms from October 5thonly when necessary.

• I will make sure you will not encounter other patients while you are in my office. Please wait outside or in your car until I text or call you to let you know that it is safe to come in for your appointment. Nobody is allowed to wait in the waiting room.
• The cleaning/disinfecting and ventilation procedures have been in place since the reopening and will not be changed. UV/HEPA air purifiers are running in both treatment rooms. Additionally, window fans have been installed and pulling air out constantly. This ensures that air in the treatment rooms is replaced often.
• There is also a UV/HEPA air purifier in the intake room.
• A contactless credit card reader has been installed. If your credit card has the tap to pay symbol, you should be able to tap your card to make a payment.

• The following procedures have been already in place.

Pre-screening will be done a day prior to your appointment. The questionnaire will be sent to you via Patient Portal. Also, to minimize contact time, I will do intake over the phone if you have newly developed conditions you would like me to treat.
Everyone will be required to wear a mask. You will have to keep your mask on during a treatment (except when you are lying face down.)
Your temperature and oxygen level will be measured before each treatment.
Once you arrive, please or use hand sanitizer (which will be provided.) Please enter the assigned treatment room immediately after you have sanitize your hands and your temperature has been taken.

Until I figure out my routine and timing, there may be some delays in appointments. Because the rooms have to be ventilated for certain amount of time to ensure your safety, my appointment times may not be as flexible as they used to be.

Thank you for your corporation.

Kimura Acupuncture, P.C.

• クレジットカードでお支払い場合は新しくタッチ決済が可能になりました。

Office Reopening Announcement
Good afternoon.

As I stated in the last email, acupuncture clinics in NY are now allowed to open with a restriction as a part of essential business. Since all necessary supplies have arrived, I am now ready to see existing patients starting tomorrow. If you are able to get a prescription from your doctor and interested in making an appointment for this week or next, please let me know.
As for patients without prescriptions, acupuncture clinics are a part of Phase 2 in NY Reopening plan. Since Phase 1 starts in Long Island tomorrow, I'm hopeful that Phase 2 will start either later next week or the week after. For those who have appointments next week and aren't interested in coming in before Phase 2 starts, I will contact you to reschedule your appointments. (In order to act based on the latest information, I will most likely contact you a day before of your appointment.)

There are several changes to how we operate.

1) Pre-screening will be done a day prior to your appointment. I will give you a call to ask a few questions. Also, to minimize contact time, I will do intake over the phone at the same time.

2) Since I don't allow my patients to wait in the waiting room until further notice, please wait in the car or outside of the office until I call you or text you. (Please let me know which number I should contact.)

3) Everyone will be required to wear a mask. You will have to keep your mask on during a treatment (except when you are lying face down.)

4) Once you arrive, please wash your hands (for 20 seconds) or use hand sanitizer. Please enter the assigned treatment room immediately after washing hands.

5) Your temperature and oxygen level will be measured before each treatment.

6) Please bring in a pen in case you need to sign a document.

7) There is a new waiver to sign related to Covid-19. Once you make an appointment, I will send you an invitation to the patient portal. You will be able to sign the form there. You can also store CC information for convenience. (To reduce contact time, online payment is recommended for CC.) If you prefer not to disclose CC information, you can still pay at the office. I also accept non-contact payments such as Apple Pay.

The patient portal can be used to send me secure messages as well as lab results. Please use the portal especially when you send me any messages that contain personal medical information.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope to see you soon and stay safe.

Thank you.

患者各位、

先日送りましたメールの通り、ニューヨーク州内の全鍼灸院は生活に必須な機関に条件付きですが該当することになり、医師からの処方箋をお持ちの方に限り、治療再開が可能になりました。必要な医薬品と清掃用品が届いたので、明日より限定的ですが、治療再開します。医師からの処方箋が手に入る方で、今週と来週中にはり治療にご興味がある方は、ご連絡ください。(かかりつけの医師がいる方は、おそらくオンライン診療(テレメディスン・テレヘルス)のみで処方箋がいただけると思います。)処方箋はご持参されるか、直接FAXでも受け付けております。

処方箋のない患者様は、ロングアイランドの第一段階の再開が明日5月27日ですが、鍼灸院は第二段階に入っているので、おそらく早くても来週末か再来週から治療が可能になると思います。今週と来週にご予約をお持ちの患者様で、処方箋をお持ちでない方には追って日程、時間の変更をお知らせします。(できるだけ最新情報を得て行動したいので、おそらくご予約日前日に連絡することになると思います。)

新型コロナウイルス感染症拡大防止のため、以下の対処方針にご協力お願いいたします。

1)ご予約日前日にコロナウイルス感染症の症状がないか事前スクリーニングをお電話でさせていただきます。予約日の対面時間を減らすため、同時に問診も電話で行います。

2)しばらくは待合室を閉鎖するので、当院に到着しましたら、こちらからテキストか電話でご連絡するまで車か外でお待ちください。(携帯の番号を前もってご連絡ください。)

3)マスクは必ずつけてください。治療中はうつぶせになるとき以外はつけたままにしてください。

4)来院してすぐにハンドサニタイザーを使うか手を洗ってください。(サニタイザーはこちらで用意してあります。)手を洗った後はすぐに指定の治療室に入室してください。

5)体温と酸素レベルを毎回治療前に測ります。

6)書類にサインするときのためペンをご持参ください。

7)新型コロナウイルスに関する新しい書類にサインする必要があります。次回のご予約の際、Patient Portalのリンクをお送りします。書類はPatient Portalから直接オンラインで署名できます。Patient Portalにはクレジットカード番号を記憶しておくこともできます。クレジットカード番号を残したくない場合は今まで通り当院でお支払いを済ませることも可能です。当院ではアップルペイなどのノータッチ決済も可能です。Patient Portalからはメールやテキストよりも安全なメッセージ送信機能もあります。(症状や治療内容の相談は安全なメッセージシステムをご使用ください。)

ご協力のほど何卒よろしくお願い申し上げます。

Themporary Office Closure - UPDATE

As you already know, Governor Cuomo extended PAUSE in certain areas including Nassau until May 28th. At the same time, now acupuncture is considered as essential business and all acupuncture clinics in NY state are allowed to open our doors.
Unfortunately, the state imposed the restriction as to whom we could treat. Patients with “only with medical prescription” are allowed to come in for treatments at this point.

As for my office, I’m unable to see patients at this very moment because I am still waiting for some medical and janitorial supplies that I order weeks ago. I am hoping to start seeing some patients from next week. I will contact all of those who have appointments in May to reschedule your appointments unless you intend to come with prescription.

I am still offering Telemedicine for free. If you are interested, please email me.

Thank you.

Rumiko Kimura-Galzina, L.Ac.

Notice of Office Closure Extension

As you already know, governor Cuomo extended PAUSE until 5/16.

I will be contacting all those who have appointments before the date shortly to reschedule. Since Acupuncture clinic is not included in phase 1 of reopening NY, I am assuming the office can be open either in late May or early June. Even after the restrictions are lifted, I will be implementing the strict cleaning protocol to keep all my patients safe and healthy.

I have set up a HIPAA-compliant Telemedicine platform for those who need my help in this difficult time. If you are interested in 20 min free telemedicine consultation for existing patients, please let me know by email.

Respectfully,

Rumiko Kimura-Galzina, L.Ac.

04/08/2020

Notice of Office Closure Extension

As you already know, governor Cuomo extended PAUSE until 4/29.

I will be contacting all those who have appointments before the date shortly to reschedule to date starting 5/6. Even after the restrictions are lifted, I will be implementing the strict cleaning protocol to keep all my patients safe and healthy.

I have set up a HIPAA-compliant Telemedicine platform for those who need my help in this difficult time. If you are interested in 20 min free telemedicine consultation for existing patients, please let me know by email.

Respectfully,

Rumiko Kimura-Galzina, L.Ac.

03/28/2020

I hope everybody is doing well. As you already know, governor Cuomo ordered us to stay home and all non-essential businesses to be closed as of 3/2/20. Based on all the latest information I gather from the media, ASNY which is in direct contact with the State for acupuncturists in NYS and other sources, I predicted that these restrictions would probably go on until a week after Easter (April 19th).

I will be contacting all those who have appointments shortly to reschedule. Even after the restrictions are lifted, I will be implementing the strict cleaning protocol to keep all my patients safe and healthy.

If you are patients with insurance coverage for acupuncture and who usually receive payments from insurance companies, please, sign on the backs of the checks and mail them to my office. If possible, please, also send a copy of the Explanation of Benefits. If it’s not possible to make a copy, please send the EOBs with checks. I will return them upon your next appointment. The office address is:

Kimura Acupuncture, P.C.
99 Hillside Ave., Ste. K
Williston Park, NY 11596

I’m trying to set up a HIPAA-compliant Telemedicine platform for those who need my help in this difficult time. Once it’s set up, I’ll send a notice on how to make an appointment and reach me remotely.

Respectfully,

Rumiko Kimura-Galzina, L.Ac.

Temporary Office Closure

We regret to inform you that Kimura Acupuncture will be closed for 2 weeks starting today, 3/16/2020. We plan to reopen on 3/28/2020 providing situation has improved. This was a difficult decision because we know acupuncture helps with pain and stress, as well as boosting of immune system. Unfortunately, potential risks outweigh the benefits at this moment and we all need to minimize our exposure to each other in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

We will be contacting those who have appointments in the coming weeks for rescheduling.

Respectfully,

Rumiko Kimura-Galzina, L.Ac.

Battlefield acupuncture reduces opioid use for civilians

More than one in five people in the U.S. who are prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them. Now, a treatment that was previously only used in the military is going mainstream and is offering a non-opioid alternative to help with chronic pain.

A meta-analysis published in 2016 evaluated 22 trials that included nearly 5,000 participants and found that acupuncture reduced migraine frequency more than preventive medicine. Besides, acupuncture was associated with significantly less side effects and patients were less likely to quit due to those side effects.
