NEW YORK STATE OFFICE OF THE STATE COMPTROLLER
The State of New York is currently holding billions of dollars in unclaimed funds. Some of this money may belong to you! http://www.osc.state.ny.us/ouf/index.htm
To search the list of unclaimed funds, enter your LAST NAME (space) FIRST NAME (space) MIDDLE INITIAL (or name of business) from 2 to 35 characters. For better results add a CITY of residence up to 19 characters.
For your protection, banks, insurance companies, utilities, investment companies and many other businesses are required by State law to surrender inactive accounts to the State. The Office of the State Comptroller serves as custodian of this money until you claim it. The State of New York never takes ownership of this money. If you can prove you are entitled to the money, we will gladly return it to you, at any time, without charge. This website will tell you how to avoid having your money turned over to the State and how to get it back if it is abandoned.
Searching Tips: If your search was unsuccessful, try entering: Just your LAST NAME (space) FIRST INITIAL
MEDICAL LIABILITY INSURANCE
Even More Membership Value!
MSSNY ONLINE LIBRARY 'OPEN'
MSSNY and EBSCO publishing are pleased to announce that they have partnered to create a long-term member benefit that will allow physicians to access valuable online resources. The service will be available on July 1 via the MSSNY website. This value-added service for our member physicians would cost $350 per year for the DynaMed portion alone. (See below for details.) The other elements cannot be bought by individual practices.
“This benefit alone is worth the price of membership,” said MSSNY President Robert Goldberg, DO. MSSNY members will enjoy unlimited personal use of the research databases listed below:
A clinical reference tool created by physicians for physicians for use at the point-of-care. The clinical information includes detailed coding information. With clinically-organized summaries on 2,000 topics, DynaMed is the only evidence-based reference shown to answer most clinical questions during practice. DynaMed is updated daily and monitors the content of over 500 medical journals. Each article is evaluated for clinical relevance and scientific validity.
This database provides full-text coverage of 130 well-known administrative journals such as Hospitals & Health Networks, Health Management Technology, Modern Healthcare and many others. This subset includes publications covering topics such as staffing, health care regulations, marketing and finance.
The perfect resource for a medical office’s web pages. This database is the ideal resource for patient education needs because all of the content is written for the lay reader/patient and organized in a way that most consumers seek information. Many physicians print information from this resource for their patients to take home and read. The articles reflect national clinical practice guidelines and are free of racial and gender bias.
Created by the National Library of Medicine, Medline uses MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) indexing that can search over 4,800 current biomedical journals.
