Timing of Age-Related Macular Degeneration Injections
NotShyPat posted:
My mother, who has AMD, went to see her retinal specialist in Texas today, 9-13-13. She normally gets an examination and an injection in her eye. Today, her doctor told her that because of the "governent" she would have to make a separate appointment for her injection, and he was no longer allowed to examine and inject during a single appointment. He also advised her to contact her senator and congressman. My question is, is there a new law that says there must be two different appointments for examinations and injections? And if so, is this for all doctors and who passed this law?
