Suffolk County EMS Division "No Show/No Call" Policy
for Providers who sign up for CME classes and then do not attend
In January 2010, the Suffolk County Division of EMS instituted a policy that would flag providers that are “no call/no show” for CME classes. Those providers will receive a written warning for the first offense. Their name will be entered into a database. The second offense they will then be mandated to send a check to reserve a seat for any CME class they would like to attend. Once the provider shows up for the class, their check will be returned. If a provider cancels by calling 631-852-5080, they will also receive their check back. The only time the Division will deposit the check will be in the case of “no call/no show.” The cost of each CME credit will be $10 a credit, which is one (1) hour. Example: If the CME class is three (3) hours long that would equal three (3) credits which would require a $30 check.
ANY CORE CLASS THAT DOES NOT HAVE A
MINIMUM OF TEN (10) PROVIDERS SIGNED UP FOR IT WILL BE CANCELLED
ANY NON CORE CLASS THAT DOES NOT HAVE A MINIMUM OF
FIFTEEN (15) PROVIDERS SIGNED UP FOR IT WILL BE CANCELLED
