Greetings Fellow Providers,
I wanted to take a moment and send out this message regarding the recently signed executive order by Gov. Hochul. Some of you may have decided to “read ahead” and evaluate the impact of the EO in relation to EMS. Since this order was signed early Tuesday morning I am sure the State DOH BEMS has been busy formulating a plan of action to communicate implementation of items related to EMS in the EO. Unfortunately, when we find ourselves in a holding pattern like this, we tend to see and increase in rumors, speculation, and sometimes misinformation as a result. I urge everyone to be patient as I am confident that in the very near future we will receive guidance from the Bureau on the EO and its impact to EMS.
As always, if you have any questions you are welcome to contact this office and speak with us, however I can say that we do not have any information to provide regarding this matter as of yet. As soon as we are provided with the necessary information, we will ensure to get that out to providers as promptly as we can.
