Editor’s Note: Power distributions from an ice storm have impacted business at the American Board of Emergency Medicine, and they have asked ACEP to help spread the word about their special circumstances.
A significant ice storm on Dec. 22 caused power and communication outages with the ABEM headquarters. These disruptions are continuing while the utility companies actively work on restoring dependable service. Please be advised that intermittent disruptions are possible during the next several days. ABEM apologizes for any inconveniences physicians may have encountered in trying to reach its office or website services.
All December 31, 2013, deadlines for completing MOC activities and PQRS MOC Additional Incentive Payment requirements have been extended to January 10, 2014, 11:59 p.m., EST.
The ABEM office will be closed from Dec. 25, 2013, through Jan. 1, 2014.
