August 13, 2009 If State Law Preemption Is the Best Stuff On Earth, It Is Now Endangered In a much anticipated ruling opinion found here, yesterday the Third Circuit revived a consumer class action against the maker of Snapple, holding that FDA did not preempt a review under state law of whether Snapple’s claims that its drinks are “all natural” was misleading because they used to contain corn syrup. The New Jersey trial court dismissed the case opinion found here because of implied preemption or that “FDA regulations so thoroughly occupy the field of beverage labeling at issue in this case that it would be unreasonable to infer that Congress intended states to supplement this area.” The law of field preemption took multiple hits after the dismissal, including the Third Circuit’s decision on Fellner v. It did note, however, that the NLEA “regulated only what a company must place on a label, claims go to what a company canno...

... Published on the Packaging World Web site. Column/Opinion. January 1, 2014 A perspective on DQSA, preemption, and pedigree. Now that DQSA is law, any previous investments to meet California pedigree law can be repurposed to meet the new federal law. By Dirk Rodgers. On November 27, 2013 President Barack Obama signed into law H.R. 3204, the pre-adoption Congressional bill designation for what is now known as the Drug Quality and Security Act of 2013 DQSA. DQSA has many provisions, but one is to preempt all existing and future state pharmaceutical serialization and pedigree laws like those that previously existed in California and Florida. Because of the preemption language contained within the DQSA, the information contained within some of my previous RxTrace columns is now obsolete—some completely, some only partially. This is because many of these columns contain ideas and discussion about topics that will also apply to the new federal law in almost the same way that they applied to the California and/o...

Legislature, because they may abuse their power, and refuse their consent on that very account.” As a result of these views, the Constitution authorizes two basic methods designed to allow amendments that either expand or constrain national powers. Under the congressional proposal method, two thirds of each house of Congress can propose a constitutional amendment. Under the national convention method, the state legislatures can apply for a national convention that then decides whether to propose a constitutional amendment. The amendments proposed under either of these two methods are then subject to ratification by the state legislatures or state conventions, as Congress determines. Why does the national convention method not work? Under that method, two-thirds of the stat...

Colorado and Washington legalized recreational use of pot but it's illegal under federal law Mark Osler: Two ideologies clash over whether U.S. should override new state laws Osler: Federalists say state laws must rule; moralists say we need national drug laws U.S. must honor states, he says; federalism is in Constitution, pot opposition is not.

How A California Law To Encourage Vaccination Could Backfire By Nancy Shute. Vaccines are required for school attendance. But the law has taken a strange turn on its way to being put into action, one that may instead make it easier for parents to exempt their children from required vaccinations. To address the problem in California, the state legislature passed a law in 2012 requiring parents seeking an exemption to first talk with a health care provider about the risks and benefits of vaccines. Last week the state's health department released the form that parents must use to request an exemption. It includes a box for a health care provider to sign, showing that the conversation has taken place. Another box reads, "I am a member of a religion which prohibits me from seeking medical advice or treatment from authorized health c...

(1/437) Challenges in securing access to care for children.

Congressional approval of Title XXI of the Social Security Act, which created the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), is a significant public effort to expand health insurance to children. Experience with the Medicaid program suggests that eligibility does not guarantee children's enrollment or their access to needed services. This paper develops an analytic framework and presents potential indicators to evaluate CHIP's performance and its impact on access, defined broadly to include access to health insurance and access to health services. It also presents options for moving beyond minimal monitoring to an evaluation strategy that would help to improve program outcomes. The policy considerations associated with such a strategy are also discussed.  (+info)

(2/437) Prepaid capitation versus fee-for-service reimbursement in a Medicaid population.

Utilization of health resources by 37,444 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a capitated health maintenance organization was compared with that of 227,242 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a traditional fee-for-service system over a 1-year period (1983-1984) in the state of Kentucky. Primary care providers in the capitated program had financial incentives to reduce downstream costs like specialist referral, emergency room use, and hospitalizations. The average number of physician visits was similar for both groups (4.47/year in the capitated program; 5.09/year in the fee-for-service system). However, the average number of prescriptions (1.9 versus 4.9 per year), average number of hospital admissions per recipient (0.11 versus 0.22 per year), and average number of hospital days per 1,000 recipients (461 versus 909 per year) were 5% to 60% lower in the capitated group than in the fee-for-service group. The Citicare capitated program resulted in a dramatic reduction in healthcare resource utilization compared with the concurrent fee-for-service system for statewide Medicaid recipients.  (+info)

(3/437) "Carving out" conditions from global capitation rates: protecting high-cost patients, physicians, and health plans in a managed care environment.

The purposes of this study were (1) to develop a method for identifying individuals with high-cost medical conditions, (2) to determine the percentage of healthcare spending they represent, and (3) to explore policy implications of "carving out" their care from managed care capitation. Annual payments over a 2-year period to enrollees of three health plans--a traditional managed care organization, and a state Medicaid program--were determined by using a cross-sectional analysis of insurance claims data. The main outcome measures were the number of enrollees with total annual payments in excess of $25,000 and the contribution of these high-cost enrollees to each health plan's total costs. Forty-one groups of diagnosis and procedure codes representing a combination of acute and chronic conditions were included on the list of carve-out conditions. Pulmonary insufficiency and respiratory failure together accounted for the largest number of high-cost individuals in each health plan. Solid organ and bone marrow transplants, AIDS, and most malignancies that required high-dose chemotherapy were also important. The carve-out list identified more than one third of high-cost individuals enrolled in the Medicaid program, approximately 20% of high-cost managed care enrollees, and 10% of high-cost fee-for-service enrollees. These data confirm that it is possible to identify high-cost individuals in health plans by using a carve-out list. Carving out high-cost patients from capitation risk arrangements may protect patients, physicians, and managed care organizations.  (+info)

(4/437) The effect of a Medicaid managed care program on the adequacy of prenatal care utilization in Rhode Island.

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether adequacy of prenatal care utilization improved after the implementation of a Medicaid managed care program in Rhode Island. METHODS: Rhode Island birth certificate data (1993-1995; n = 37021) were used to analyze pre- and post-program implementation changes in adequacy of prenatal care utilization. Logistic regression models were used to characterize the variation in prenatal care adequacy as a function of both time and the various covariates. RESULTS: Adequacy of prenatal care utilization for Medicaid patients improved significantly after implementation of the program, from 57.1% to 62.1% (odds ratio [OR] = 1.2, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.1, 1.3). After the program was implemented, Medicaid patients who went to private physicians' offices for prenatal care were 1.4 times as likely as before to receive adequate prenatal care (OR = 1.4, 95% CI = 1.2, 1.7). CONCLUSIONS: Unlike many other Medicaid expansions for pregnant women, the RIte Care program in Rhode Island has resulted in significant improvement in adequacy of prenatal care utilization for its enrollees. This improvement was due to specific program interventions that addressed and changed organizational and delivery system barriers to care.  (+info)

(5/437) A conflict of strategies: Medicaid managed care and Medicaid maximization.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the influence of state strategies aimed at increasing federal Medicaid matching dollars on the design of states' Medicaid managed care programs. STUDY DESIGN: Data obtained from the 1996-1997 case studies of 13 states to examine how states have adapted the design of their Medicaid managed care programs in part because of maximization strategies, to accommodate the many roles and responsibilities that Medicaid has assumed over the years. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Our study showed that as states made the shift to managed care, some found that the responsibilities undertaken in part through maximization strategies proved to be in conflict with their Medicaid managed care initiatives. Among other things, the study revealed that most states included provisions that preserved the health care safety net, such as adapting the managed care benefit package and promoting the participation of safety net providers in managed care programs. In addition, most of the study states continued to pay special subsidies to safety net providers, including hospitals and clinics. CONCLUSIONS: States have made real progress in moving a large number of Medicaid beneficiaries into managed care. At the same time, many states have specially crafted their managed care programs to accommodate safety net providers and existing funding mechanisms. By making these adaptations states, in the long run, may compromise the central goals of managed care: controlling costs and improving Medicaid beneficiaries' access to and quality of care.  (+info)

(6/437) Medical records and privacy: empirical effects of legislation.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of state legislation requiring patient informed consent prior to medical record abstraction by external researchers for a specific study. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Informed consent responses obtained from November 1997 through April 1998 from members of a Minnesota-based IPA model health plan. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive case study of consent to gain access to medical records for a pharmaco-epidemiologic study of seizures associated with use of a pain medication that was conducted as part of the FDA's post-marketing safety surveillance program to evaluate adverse events associated with approved drugs. DATA COLLECTION: The informed consent process approved by an institutional review board consisted of three phases: (1) a letter from the health plan's medical director requesting participation, (2) a second mailing to nonrespondents, and (3) a follow-up telephone call to nonrespondents. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Of 140 Minnesota health plan members asked to participate in the medical records study, 52 percent (73) responded and 19 percent (26) returned a signed consent form authorizing access to their records for the study. For 132 study subjects enrolled in five other health plans in states where study-specific consent was not required, health care providers granted access to patient medical records for 93 percent (123) of the members. CONCLUSION: Legislation requiring patient informed consent to gain access to medical records for a specific research study was associated with low participation and increased time to complete that observational study. Efforts to protect patient privacy may come into conflict with the ability to produce timely and valid research to safeguard and improve public health.  (+info)

(7/437) Access to care for the uninsured: is access to a physician enough?

OBJECTIVES: This study examined a private-sector, statewide program (Kentucky Physicians Care) of care for uninsured indigent persons regarding provision of preventive services. METHODS: A survey was conducted of a stratified random sample of 2509 Kentucky adults (811 with private insurance, 849 Medicaid recipients, 849 Kentucky Physicians Care recipients). RESULTS: The Kentucky Physicians Care group had significantly lower rates of receipt of preventive services. Of the individuals in this group, 52% cited cost as the primary reason for not receiving mammography, and 38% had not filled prescribed medicines in the previous year. CONCLUSIONS: Providing free access to physicians fills important needs but is not sufficient for many uninsured patients to receive necessary preventive services.  (+info)

(8/437) Medicaid managed care payment rates in 1998.

This paper reports on a new survey of state Medicaid managed care payment rates. We collected rate data for Medicaid's Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC)/Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and poverty-related populations and made adjustments to make the data comparable across states. The results show a slightly more than twofold variation in capitation rates among states, caused primarily by fee-for-service spending levels and demographics. There is a very low correlation between the variation in Medicaid capitation rates among states and the variations in Medicare's adjusted average per capita cost. The data are not sufficient to answer questions about the adequacy of rates but should help to further policy discussions and research.  (+info)


What would be an example of a group health plan?


Are Aflac and Blue Cross Blue Shields Group Health Plans?

I'm asking for an assignment in my medical office class.  I'm trying to figure out what to put in Block 1 of the CMS 1500 claim form.
----------

Group health plan? Hmm well I know the difference between an insurance and a medical group not sure if that's the same. For example if a patient has Blue Cross and it is an HMO policy the medical group would be Arta Monarch or Family Choice << those are medical groups that fall under HMO's.


What should I look for in a good health plan for my wife and I?


We are late twenties, married two years and really need a decent family health plan. We have no kids yet. What specific benefits/costs should I be looking at? We can probably only afford $200-$300 a month, sadly.
----------

If you can find a plan through your employer, it would be the cheapest. If you are buying on your own then you will have some additional things to look at:
1. are either of you planning any major surgeries or health events (pregnancy)
2. how often do you typically go to the doctor (1? 10?)
3. Do you need specialist care (ob? specialists?)
4. How much money do you have available in an emergency
5. Any routine medications (birth control? allergy? special condition?)

Plans will have info such as co-pays (what you pay when you go in) and then also things like co-insurance. Pay attention to these as it will help you identify how much money you will be paying in addition to your health insurance.

Some people pick plans that have higher upfront costs (copays, drugs, etc) with lower monthly costs because they rarely go to the doc and it is cheaper to pay those costs out of pocket. Others find insurance that is more per month but the day to day is cheaper.

Read the fine print- will previous conditions be a problem? Is there a limit to how much the insurance will pay? Is there a drug plan.

Good luck.


What does the new medical health plan mean for me?


I am in my early 30's, working as a freelance consultant (meaning buying private health coverage). 
Can I and my wife choose the new Gov Medical health plan that are in the works -- and what will that mean for covering her and kids when we start a family?
----------

Last I heard, there is no government health plan in the works. Lieberman managed to kill it. 

Meanwhile, there are still 2 different plans b/n House and Senate and we won't know what the outcome is until they are reconciled.


What kind of health plan do rich people use?


I'm a middle class student on my parent's employer provided health plan: Kaiser Permanente, a large HMO.  I don't know much about the health care system.  I'm just aware of university provided health care as another alternative. So I'm curious what kind of plan do rich people use?
----------

Hello, I'm not sure how you define "rich," but high-end policies are either 80/20 plans (and the wealthy can afford the 20% they pay), low-deductible plans, or plans their corporations write themselves and are provided free to them. They have the freedom to go to any doctor they choose, anywhere in the country. However, that's still a lot running around. Personally, I've been with Kaiser for 20 years and if you're willing to be an advocate for your health care, Kaiser is the best HMO out there, and it's under one roof.


Does Washington state have a free health plan for people on state assistance?

Let's look at a simple product like: oreo cookies...yeah there yummy....But are you aware that the company that makes them, makes them to be ADDICTIVE.. ?  It's true. When my sister completes  her training I'm going to read everyone of her text books.  Please, Please get your uncle the help he needs through a CNT.  Best Wishes for you both in good  health.

Is he on state medicaid? or does he have insurance thru a private insurance company? That can make a big difference. If his health is nothing terminal can he just not mention it when trying to switch? Is his sickness something he has to share with new insurance? Because kidney stones shouldn't prevent him from switching. I know most insurance co. Even state only has open enrollement 1 time a year. If he has to stay with the ones he's with I would start filing complaints for him about the indifferences. Not only to the insurance co but to the health program that dr works for (hospital, clinic, etc). If he's not willing to say enough is enough then there may not be much that can be done. If the problem continues I would seriously think about contacting an attorney. good luck
