I Quit For’ Campaign Returns to Raise Awareness Amid Projected Rise in Nevada Lung Cancer Diagnoses and Growing Vape Usage

Comprehensive Cancer Centers (Comprehensive) and UNLV are bringing back its popular “I Quit For” initiative for a third consecutive year, designed to encourage people who smoke tobacco products to kick the habit and addiction.

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 2,090 Nevadans will be diagnosed with a form of lung cancer this year, marking a nearly 24 percent increase over the 1,680 new cases projected statewide in 2017. Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, accounting for more deaths than colon, breast and prostate cancer deaths combined.

Additionally, vaping figures continue to be substantial with young people. Approximately 2.1 million middle and high school students said they used e-cigarettes in 2017, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Beginning on November 1 – the first day of Lung Cancer Awareness Month – Comprehensive will place eight tobacco drop-off bins on three UNLV campuses. One bin will be placed at the Paradise Campus (851 E. Tropicana Ave., 89119), one at the Shadow Lane Campus (1001 Shadow Lane, 89106), two at the Student Union on the Maryland Campus (4505 S. Maryland Parkway, 89154) and the remaining four will be stationed at Thomas & Mack Center or Sam Boyd Stadium during events.

“The mission of this meaningful community partnership, now three years strong, remains the same – keeping Southern Nevadans healthy and from ever having to visit one of our clinics for cancer treatment,” said Jon Bilstein, executive director of Comprehensive. “With a projected rise in new lung cancer diagnoses in Nevada and a growing number of young people vaping, there has never been a better time to kick the addiction. Quitting smoking not only reduces your chance of lung cancer, but all cancers.”

Those wanting to quit may deposit any unused tobacco products in the bins and make a simple and meaningful “I Quit For” pledge. The pledge encourages attendees to write the name of a child, parent, friend or loved one to whom they are promising to quit smoking, taking the pledge to a symbolic level. They can then snap a photo of themselves with their pledge form and send it to their friends and family members, or post on social media with the hashtag #IQuitFor.

Pledge forms are attached to each drop-off bin. Additional components of the I Quit For campaign include health-focused messaging shared via on-campus video monitors, university publications and social media. Information about the campaign, tools, and resources to help individuals quit smoking and additional pledge forms are available at www.IQuitFor.com.

Comprehensive recognizes that dropping off tobacco products is only the first step in what can be a difficult process to quit smoking. Those making the “I Quit For” pledge are encouraged to take advantage of the Nevada Tobacco Quitline’s resources by visiting www.nevadatobaccoquitline.com or calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669).

Summerlin Report – October 2018

By | News

As the fall season approaches, it brings new educational opportunities. On the Summerlin Campus, Roseman University’s Neighborhood Health Series (NHS) kicked-off the season with a presentation on immune-boosting supplements by Manas Mandal, PhD, a faculty member of the College of Pharmacy as well as an adjunct faculty member of the College of Medicine. The NHS is beginning its third year and was developed by Vanessa Maniago, Roseman special advisor to the president. These monthly presentations are a time for community members to visit our newest campus in Summerlin, meet new friends or sit with regulars, and learn about vital topics of interest to the community. A light dinner is provided, a volunteer from American Sign Language is present and signing, and the entire evening is free for our guests, courtesy of Clark County Credit Union. Come join us for October’s offering!

Also on the Summerlin Campus, the College of Medicine’s DiscoverMED program reached a new audience in September! This past month it not only hosted the Adelson Education Campus, for a second time, but it was also privileged to serve its first public school, Arbor View. The College of Medicine (COM) has desired to reach into the public schools, and this year, after conversations with key individuals of the Clark County School District (CCSD), the COM is able to include this offering in CCSD’s curriculum.

In DiscoverMED, area high school students spend the day exploring a single medical case through the eyes of various medical specialties. During four specific lab experiences, collaboration with their classmates, and mentoring from COM faculty and community volunteer physicians, they discover their own skills in critical thinking and discovery.

Several new public schools are interested in participating this fall, and we are looking forward to increasing our imprint in the CCSD. To date, we have reached over 320 families with this program. Imagine the far-reaching impact of this one program in our community, on behalf of Roseman. The College of Medicine, on the Summerlin Campus, considers it a privilege to play a part in the education of high school students, inspiring young minds to consider a career in healthcare and giving them practical experience in clinical diagnostic skills. Follow the COM on Twitter: @RosemanMedicine and the hashtag #DiscoverMED2018, for enjoyable photos.

Beyond Stark: Nevada’s Lesser-Known Physician Self-Referral Laws

By | News

By J. Malcolm DeVoy, Attorney, DeVoy Law

Nevada law imposes obligations upon physicians that are under-appreciated and may foil an otherwise effective compliance program. Medical providers are aware of the federal penalties for kickbacks and impermissible self-referrals under the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Law, which can include civil monetary penalties, exclusion from Medicare and Medicaid, and even criminal prosecution. Many providers believe that if they do not accept Medicare or Medicaid, then their regulatory burden is all but eliminated. This is only partially true. Nevada has long had its own laws against self-referrals that apply to all referrals made by physicians—or others acting at their behest1—regardless of payment source.2

Nevada’s prohibition on self-referrals is similar to the Stark Law, but distinct enough that compliance with federal law alone does not ensure compliance with state law. Nevada prohibits a physician from referring a patient for any goods or service “related to health care” to any health facility, laboratory, imaging center, or broadly defined “commercial establishment,”3 in which the referrer has a financial interest.4 A “financial interest” is defined as an “ownership or other interest” held by the referrer or the referrer’s family member, including immediate family, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and certain in-laws as well.5

To satisfy this definition, the referrer’s interest must provide compensation to the physician (or family member) that varies based on the volume or value of goods and services provided due to referrals.6Regulations provide examples of what payments would qualify under this definition. These include finder’s fees, income-sharing agreements, debt instruments, leases, or other relationships where the referring physician’s compensation is tied to the value or quantity of goods or services referred to the business.7

Like the Stark Law, Nevada’s prohibition on self-referrals contains exceptions to its application, and several of the exceptions under Nevada law are similar to the exceptions that exist for the Stark Law. For example, referrals within a group practice of physicians are permitted.8 Similarly, referrals to large, publicly traded companies in which the physician is an investor are allowed.9 Recognizing the challenges faced in rural Nevada as well, certain referrals that otherwise would be prohibited are permitted based on geographic factors.10

These exceptions to Nevada’s prohibition on self-referrals are narrowly drawn and limited in number. Nevada’s prohibitions on physician self-referral have fewer exceptions than the Stark Law, which sets forth exemptions within the statute itself, and still more exceptions within the Code of Federal Regulations. The exceptions to the Nevada law that do exist are less developed than those accompanying the Stark Law, which have been examined and explained by the United States Department of Health and Human Services over the span of decades.

Any violation of this law, which is written to impose strict liability, is a misdemeanor.11 Physicians may also face professional discipline for violating Nevada’s self-referral prohibitions,12 or an investigation by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.13 Loss or impairment of a professional license, and one’s livelihood, is never worth the short-term gain of improper referrals. For that reason, it is crucial for physicians to ensure their referral practices comply not only with federal law, but even Nevada’s lesser-known laws as well.
