Timber Trespass

Last week I wrote about trespassing neighbors, whose activities, structures, commercial activity, or personal property encroach onto your property. This week I am covering what happens when a neighbor - either negligently or intentionally - crosses onto another landowner’s property and cuts down a tree or trees. California, like many other states, see this as a particularly offensive civil wrong, and therefore has enacted a particular statute that sets forth how the wrong may be punished.

Holy MACRA-oni; It’s Here

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) reformed the way physicians and clinicians will be paid for medical services under Medicare Part B.  Prior Medicare reporting systems have been replaced with MACRA.  Humboldt County physicians and practices should contact the Health Services Advisory Group and the California Health Information Partnership & Services Organization (CalHIPSO) for no-cost technical assistance to help you prepare.  Do not hesitate to contact CalHIPSO.
