Expanding coverage via tax credits: trade-offs and outcomes. (1/43)

In this paper we discuss various options for using refundable tax credits to reduce the number of uninsured persons. The effect of tax credits on the number of uninsured depends on the form of the credit scheme adopted. Moreover, since large subsidies for private insurance directed to low-income persons have never been implemented, there is considerable uncertainty about the effect of various tax credit proposals. We find that small credits will do little to reduce the number of uninsured but that credits covering about half of the premium for a benchmark policy might have a significant effect, especially if they take a fixed-dollar form and can be used for policies with few restrictions. Finally, we discuss the normative issues surrounding the "costs" of these credits schemes, and the policy issues raised by the uncertainty of the effects.  (+info)

Activity-based costing via an information system: an application created for a breast imaging center. (2/43)

Activity-based costing (ABC) is a process that enables the estimation of the cost of producing a product or service. More accurate than traditional charge-based approaches, it emphasizes analysis of processes, and more specific identification of both direct and indirect costs. This accuracy is essential in today's healthcare environment, in which managed care organizations necessitate responsible and accountable costing. However, to be successfully utilized, it requires time, effort, expertise, and support. Data collection can be tedious and expensive. By integrating ABC with information management (IM) and systems (IS), organizations can take advantage of the process orientation of both, extend and improve ABC, and decrease resource utilization for ABC projects. In our case study, we have examined the process of a multidisciplinary breast center. We have mapped the constituent activities and established cost drivers.

Perspectives on the pharmaceutical industry. (3/43)

This paper seeks to provide an economic perspective on the pharmaceutical industry, which has come under increasing criticism on a number of issues. In the main, that criticism amounts to a rather ineffective flailing at the supply side of the market for pharmaceutical products-much of it based on inaccurate perceptions-when a more productive policy would be to strengthen the hitherto weak and poorly informed demand side of the market.  (+info)

Cost recovery beds in public hospitals in Indonesia. (4/43)

A policy of allowing public hospitals to provide some better quality, higher priced hospital beds for those able to pay was introduced as government policy in Indonesia after 1993. A study was conducted in 1998 in three public hospitals in East Java to investigate if the policy objective of cost-recovery was being achieved. Hospital revenue from these commercial beds was less than both the recurrent and total costs of providing them in all three hospitals, but exceeded recurrent costs minus staff salaries in two hospitals. One reason for the low cost-recovery ratios was that between 55% and 66% of the revenue was used as staff incentives, mostly to doctors. This was more than the maximum of 40% stipulated in the policy. The high proportions of total revenue going to staff were a result of hospital management having set bed fees too low. The policy may be contributing to the retention of doctors within public sector employment; however, it is not achieving its stated objective, especially over the longer term where full recovery of salaries and investment costs needs to be considered. Public hospitals that wish to invest in commercial beds need effective management and accounting systems so as to be able to monitor and control costs and set fees at levels that recoup the costs incurred. Further research is required to determine if this form of public-private mix has negative effects on equity and access for poorer patients.  (+info)

Allowing for differential timing in cost analyses: discounting and annualization. (5/43)

There are differences in timing related to when costs of certain inputs are incurred and when they are used over the lifetime of a programme. This paper looks at the issues related to the comparison of cost data over time focusing on discounting and annualization adjustments, which are used by economists to calculate financial and economic costs. The process of discounting is used to deal with the notion of time preference. Time preference implies that future costs are worth less, and hence discounted more, to reflect individual and societal preferences to have resources and money now rather than in the future. While discounting is appropriate in many situations, it is also useful to compute an annual equivalent cost when recurrent costs of an intervention are incurred, or are expected to be incurred, in subsequent years. This approach has the added benefit of illustrating how capital items are actually used during the lifetime of an intervention. This paper presents methods to both discount and annualize costs, and discusses rules-of-thumb to decide when to make these adjustments.  (+info)

Use of linear programming to estimate impact of changes in a hospital's operating room time allocation on perioperative variable costs. (6/43)

BACKGROUND: Administrators at hospitals with a fixed annual budget may want to focus surgical services on priority areas to ensure its community receives the best health services possible. However, many hospitals lack the detailed managerial accounting data needed to ensure that such a change does not increase operating costs. The authors used a detailed hospital cost database to investigate by how much a change in allocations of operating room (OR) time among surgeons can increase perioperative variable costs. METHODS: The authors obtained financial data for all patients who underwent outpatient or same-day admit surgery during a year. Linear programming was used to determine by how much changing the mix of surgeons can increase total variable costs while maintaining the same total hours of OR time for elective cases. RESULTS: Changing OR allocations among surgeons without changing total OR hours allocated will likely increase perioperative variable costs by less than 34%. If, in addition, intensive care unit hours for elective surgical cases are not increased, hospital ward occupancy is capped, and implant use is tracked and capped, perioperative costs will likely increase by less than 10%. These four variables predict 97% of the variance in total variable costs. CONCLUSIONS: The authors showed that changing OR allocations among surgeons without changing total OR hours allocated can increase hospital perioperative variable costs by up to approximately one third. Thus, at hospitals with fixed or nearly fixed annual budgets, allocating OR time based on an OR-based statistic such as utilization can adversely affect the hospital financially. The OR manager can reduce the potential increase in costs by considering not just OR time, but also the resulting use of hospital beds and implants.  (+info)

The financial performance of community health centers, 1996-1999. (7/43)

This paper presents recent financial health trends of community health centers (CHCs) between 1996 and 1999, a time characterized by fiscal and operating challenges. Results show that many individual CHCs have been subject to large changes in payer-mix among uninsured and Medicaid users. Troubling is the finding that more than half of all CHCs reported operating deficits in 1997, 1998 and 1999. CHCs experiencing large increases in the share of uninsured users and those participating in Medicaid managed care appear to have been disproportionately affected. The analyses presented support recommendations for enhanced data collection and for further monitoring of CHCs' financial health.  (+info)

Input-output analysis and the hospital budgeting process. (8/43)

Two hospitals budget systems, a conventional budget and an input-output budget, are compared to determine how they affect management decisions in pricing, output, planning, and cost control. Analysis of data from a 210-bed not-for-profit hospital indicates that adoption of the input-output budget could cause substantial changes in posted hospital rates in individual departments but probably would have no impact on hospital output determination. The input-output approach promises to be a more accurate system for cost control and planning because, unlike the conventional approach, it generates objective signals for investigating variances of expenses from budgeted levels.  (+info)

Many people do important work and do a good job but dont receive the kind of pensions that public employees do. I dont think that youre listening; were not acrimonious toward teachers. We dont argue that teachers didnt do a good job. But the size of public employee pensions are bankrupting the city and state. The money just isnt there. And all the public employees unions do is whine about how tough they have it instead of making a positive contribution to how to solve the problem.. The argument that the pension underfund was caused by politicians taking the money for other purposes doesnt tell the entire story. (By the way, one of those other purposes was to support the annual state contributions to schools.) The fact that the pensions are so overly generous and couldnt be afford in the first place also contributes to the problem. Besides, where were those public employee union leaders when the people they donated campaign money to were raiding the pension funds? The people that your ...

The state Organization of Management Confidential Employees took the opportunity of the overwhelming ratification of a three-year contract for the Public Employees Federation to once again call for the states roughly 9,000 M/Cs, who due to their job classifications are not represented by a union, to receive raises that keep pace with their unionized co-workers in the years to come.. "OMCEs Fight for Pay Parity on behalf of its members has been a long one," said a statement from OMCE President Barbara Zaron. That fight has been "made more difficult because it creates an awkward tension and dynamic with office colleagues and friends - many of whom share similar job responsibilities and titles.". "When a unit such as the Public Employees Federation (PEF) moves to ratify its contract, we watch it intently, because we need to be nimble, and prepared to once again raise our voice on behalf of our members - making the Cuomo administration and Legislators know that without positive action M/C ...

In an April 19 article in the Orange County Register regarding the amount of total compensation a city employee receives, I saw the most interesting quote from Jennifer Muir, spokeswoman for the Orange County Employees Association, which represents 18,000 public employees in Orange County.. Discussing whether city employees are paid highly, she said that "Union leaders have long urged for people to consider the possibility that private-industry employees are being undercompensated and should receive retirement benefits and health coverage.". Now, I do small business accounting, working with more than 400 clients in my 16 years of business. I also prepare individual tax returns with a good mixture of union members, government employees and private-industry employees and, yes, Muir is absolutely correct. Private-industry employees, in comparison to government employees in the same industry or profession, are definitely paid less especially if the government workers are represented by ...

testing of public employees can be attacked by the 4th amendment, unless such test are of a nature where it is reasonable to suspect that an employee is using drugs or alcohol or drug use in a particular job could threaten the public interest or safety.

Enough people have real life experience with the ill effects of union activity upon continued job growth (plant shutdowns due to refusal to make concessions)production efficiency ( workplace rules) and, in the public sector, overly generous fringe benifits, to understand intuitively that public umions are part of the problem; and, so, I suspect Walker is safe in the PR battle despite what some polls would suggest. But, Walker needs to do a better job of explaining the protections for public employees in the civil service statutes, that such protections will remain in effect after passage of the pending budget legislation, and the reason why collective bargaining will frustrate implementation of cost savings at the county and local level. The voters need to understand this becuase this battle, even if won is just the beggining. The unions will target every republican legislative seat, in swing districts, and the governor, in the next election. The campaign will be as dirty as anyone living can ...

Speaking of jobs I wouldnt want to do - and wondering who will do them if…. For 16 years I ran the health and safety program for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the union that represents public employees. And throughout those 16 years, I never ceased to be amazed at the jobs people did every day, 8-10 hours a day - jobs that most people dont even like to think about: repairing and cleaning out sewers (wading through raw sewage), staffing understaffed, underfunded mental health institutions, guarding prisoners that would just as soon kill you as eat their lunch, repairing interstate highways in the middle of the night, inches away from speeding traffic, cleaning up the bottles of urine that long-distance truck drivers throw out the trucks, taking children away from abusive parents. And then lets not forget the cops and firefighters, And they do it all for lousy pay and often no OSHA coverage. While were not thinking about them, lets just hope we dont have ...
In January of this year, I cancelled Washington State Health Insurance Pool because it started costing almost $400/month for the premiums. Fortunately, with Ians new job, I think this will work out to our benefit. Anyway, with the new job came a couple options: 1. Group Health, which I used growing up and which my mother, a retired school teacher, still uses-a fine option, and one of the first HMO-type organizations (from what I understand), and pretty well respected in the area; or 2. Uniform Health, the public employees typical choice. We had originally considered choosing Group Health-I thought that if I was going to be doing cancer stuff, Id maybe like a change of scene-new nurses, new docs, new infusion room-but then, when the pesky brain mets appeared, it suddenly became clear that having access to the UW, and Dr. Jason, was MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than any sort of scene shift. So Uniform it is, and, although Ive heard accessing financial support for occasional treatments-certain brain ...
Back at the height of the massive Gulf oil spill in 2010, there was quite a bit of controversy about just how much crude was blasting out of the well. According to new documents that a watchdog group released on Monday, there was heated debate among the scientists who evaluated the flow rate as well.. For the first few weeks after the spill began in April 2010, BP misled the public about how big it was, and the government repeated BPs estimate without question. And when the government released its own estimate in late May of up to 25,000 barrels per day, that too was controversial-and proved to be far lower than the actual size, which was more like 53,000 barrels of oil per day.. Now, an email released by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) traces efforts to downplay the spill size in the initial weeks back to the White House. The group released a May 29, 2010 email from Dr. Marcia McNutt, the director of the US Geologic Survey and head of the governments Flow Rate ...
Sorry, but thats not what body cameras are for. They may provide evidence clearing officers of misconduct, but body cameras arent there to create law enforcement highlight reels. While its great some officers may find the cameras useful for clearing themselves of charges, they are public employees, not private entities engaging in personal enforcement of laws. The footage should be as public as their positions. But this will never happen if their employer is unwilling to craft a solid body cam policy that addresses private ownership of cameras. As it stands now, the department is allowing its existing policies on evidence handling to act as a stand-in for its non-existent body camera policy. According to these rules, all evidence must be held for two years and turned over on request to the sheriffs department. Supposedly, this will encompass privately-held body camera footage. But it would be much better for body cam evidence to be stored on site where its immediately accessible and less ...
A potential strike involving 55,000 education support workers in Ontario has been averted following a late night deal between the province and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).. The tentative three year agreement means schools across the province are expected to be open as usual on Monday.. "Parents can rest easy knowing that the Government worked tirelessly to ensure their children remain in the classroom, where they belong," said Education Minister Stephen Lecce, without giving any specific details of the new agreement except to say it was "fair and reasonable.". "We can all leave this deal knowing weve achieved some incremental success, and that is important for the students of this province," he said.. More than two dozen school boards were prepared to shut down classes in the event of a strike.. Laura Walton, president of CUPEs Ontario School Board Council of Unions, apologized to parents and student for how long it took to get an agreement.. "To all the parents and students ...
