Prepaid capitation versus fee-for-service reimbursement in a Medicaid population. (1/77)

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)

Subspecialist referrals in an academic, pediatric setting: rationale, rates, and compliance. (2/77)

Appropriate referrals reduce healthcare costs and enhance patient satisfaction. We evaluated the subspecialty referral pattern of a managed care general pediatric office over a 4-month period. Three-hundred-forty-six referrals (267 meeting inclusion criteria) to 24 subspecialties were generated during 4,219 office visits, with five subspecialties receiving 59% of the referrals. The main objective of each referral was management (100), diagnostic assistance (75), special procedure (63), or a combination (29). Patients kept less than half of the referral appointments, with the highest (80%) and lowest (28%) compliance rates observed in cardiology and ophthalmology, respectively. Appointments made within four weeks of the referral were more likely to be kept than those with greater lag time (P = 0.001). The subspecialists prepared written, post-consultation responses to the referring physician in 73% of cases. Presumptive and post-consultation diagnoses were congruent in 78% of those cases in which both diagnoses were noted. Overall, the managed care format enabled our practice to track referral outcomes. The subspecialists' written responses also allowed for an educational exchange between physicians. Compliance with referral appointments is a substantial problem that needs to be addressed.  (+info)

The impact of welfare reform on parents' ability to care for their children's health. (3/77)

OBJECTIVES: Most of the national policy debate regarding welfare assumed that if middle-income mothers could balance work while caring for their children's health and development, mothers leaving welfare for work should be able to do so as well. Yet, previous research has not examined the conditions faced by mothers leaving welfare for work. METHODS: Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, this study examined the availability of benefits that working parents commonly use to meet the health and developmental needs of their children; paid sick leave, vacation leave, and flexible hours. RESULTS: In comparison with mothers who had never received welfare, mothers who had been on Aid to Families with Dependent Children were more likely to be caring for at least 1 child with a chronic condition (37% vs 21%, respectively). Yet, they were more likely to lack sick leave for the entire time they worked (36% vs 20%) and less likely to receive other paid leave or flexibility. CONCLUSIONS: If current welfare recipients face similar conditions when they return to work, many will face working conditions that make it difficult or impossible to succeed in the labor force at the same time as meeting their children's health and developmental needs.  (+info)

Medicaid recipients' experiences under mandatory managed care. (4/77)

OBJECTIVE: To describe Medicaid recipients' experiences with the outcomes of access, quality, and satisfaction in a mandatory managed care (MC) program. STUDY DESIGN: A qualitative case study design with content analysis of narrative focus group (FG) data, which was part of a comprehensive program evaluation that also involved pre- and postsurveys and analyses of cost and utilization data. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Six FG interviews were conducted in the autumn of 1997 with 31 women on the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Participants were recruited from a randomly ordered list of women who had responded to a 1996 premanaged care survey regarding their or their child's healthcare experiences under traditional Medicaid. RESULTS: There was general consensus across all focus groups on a range of issues, including improvements in access to primary care and continuity of care. Overall, few participants expressed discontent with restriction of choice of provider and on MC policies regarding use of the emergency room. There was no consensus on what factors influenced choice of MC plan, although convenience of location was named most frequently. An unanticipated outcome was the recurrent theme across all focus groups of disrespectful treatment by healthcare personnel, especially under traditional Medicaid, which had declined somewhat under managed care. CONCLUSIONS: These contextual accounts identify specific features of a mandatory Medicaid MC program that are viewed as improvements over traditional Medicaid. Specific features that were dissatisfying can be addressed to improve both enrollee satisfaction and the transition to managed care for Medicaid recipients.  (+info)

Medicaid managed care payment rates in 1998. (5/77)

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)

Health insurance coverage after welfare. (6/77)

This DataWatch examines the health insurance coverage of former welfare recipients who left welfare between January 1995 and mid-1997, using data from the 1997 National Survey of America's Families. Although the majority of women who left welfare were working, only 33 percent of these women obtained health coverage through their jobs. Rates of uninsurance increase with the number of months since leaving welfare and with declines in Medicaid coverage. A year or more after leaving welfare, 49 percent of women and 30 percent of children were uninsured.  (+info)

Mandated managed care for blind and disabled Medicaid beneficiaries in a county-organized health system: implementation challenges and access issues. (7/77)

OBJECTIVES: The challenges of Medicaid managed care organizations that serve blind and disabled members are reviewed. Beneficiary satisfaction and access to care are assessed, and access problems are identified and resolved or minimized to the greatest degree possible. STUDY DESIGN: Formative evaluation consisting of a mailed survey and follow-up telephone outreach contacts. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A written survey was sent to more than 18,000 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiary members who were blind or disabled, with 5574 recipients responding. Of these, 1981 members identified issues that warranted 2106 follow-up telephone calls. RESULTS: Survey responses showed that beneficiaries had limited experience with managed care and were generally satisfied with access to primary care. The healthcare system used the study findings to develop focused training programs and materials, to initiate a special needs liaison program, and to revise guidelines to simplify and standardize authorization procedures for obtaining medical supplies and repairing equipment. CONCLUSIONS: Factors found to be associated with the success of a Medicaid managed care program serving blind and disabled beneficiaries include educating the members and providers for better understanding of managed care, incorporating collaborative service improvement activities, and documenting trends.  (+info)

Employment outcomes among AFDC recipients treated for substance abuse in Washington State. (8/77)

In 1996, Congress passed sweeping welfare reform, abolishing the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program. Each state now administers its own welfare-to-work program under broad federal guidelines, which require eligible adult recipients to work or perform community service. High-risk welfare recipients, especially those with chemical dependency problems, face significant obstacles in their efforts to achieve greater self-sufficiency under the new welfare-to-work programs. State databases were used to track employment outcomes for AFDC clients admitted to treatment for chemical dependency in Washington State during a two-year period. Exposure to treatment was associated with a greater likelihood of becoming employed and with increased earnings for those who became employed. Ensuring that welfare recipients with substance abuse problems have access to appropriate treatment and vocational services is critical if welfare-to-work programs are to promote greater economic self-sufficiency.  (+info)

Background: It is important not to ignore the impact of parental cancer on children and this is where oncology and palliative care nurses can play a key role; providing support to parents as a regular aspect of oncological nursing care. Objectives: This study explored the experience, needs and confidence of nurses working in acute cancer services when supporting parents with cancer who have dependent children. Methods: Two focus group interviews were conducted with oncology and palliative care nurses in one acute hospital trust in the south of England. Results: Nurses described how they identified with their patients as a parent themselves. This identification with patients added to the emotionally charged context of care and resulted in nurse avoidance of the troubling issue of dependent children. Nurses identified the importance of peer support with regular opportunities to reflect on practice when dealing with issues relevant to parents and children. Conclusions: Oncology and palliative care ...

The graphic also shows the average number of dependent children different types of families had. Married or civil partnered couples had a higher average number of dependent children in their families than other family types, at 1.791 dependent children per family compared with 1.71 for all families. Meanwhile lone parent families had 1.59 dependent children on average, lower than other family types, and cohabiting couples had an average of 1.62. These patterns are likely to reflect whether there is a partner living in the household and the stability of parental partnerships. Previous research has indicated that marital partnerships are more stable than cohabiting partnerships2.. The age of parents is also a factor as previous analysis3 has shown that married couples tend to be older on average than cohabiting couples so are more likely to have finished having children. This is partly because some couples cohabit, have children and then marry when children are older. Similarly, lone parents may ...

Medicaid coverage has expanded considerably with the passage of the Affordable Care Act and other policy changes, reaching more adults with behavioral health needs. States may now expand Medicaid eligibility to include almost all adults at or below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL), or $27,821 for a family of three in 2016, and receive enhanced federal funding to finance the cost of this expansion. Traditionally, individuals could only be eligible for Medicaid if they both met income requirements and fell into a "category" of covered people, such as parents of dependent children or individuals with disabilities, which includes a mental illness that qualifies someone for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These rules excluded many low-income adults without dependent children who had complex health needs, including substance use disorder or other behavioral health conditions, but did not meet criteria for having a disability. Low-income individuals who were historically ineligible for ...
U.S. Army service members children are confronted with continuous relocation. For this reason, many army posts have established family oriented services which cater to some of the needs unique to army dependent children. Many posts provide families with programs provide families with programs such as scouting and sports; however, there are no child participatory theatrical programs available to all installation children. This thesis reports the methodology used in establishing Children in Theatre, a theatrical arts program at Fort Leonard Wood U.S. Army post. The purpose of the thesis is four-fold: first, familiarize others who will continue the program; second, encourage continued dialogue about theatrical programs for children on Fort Leonard Wood; third, blue print possible avenues for other army installations; and fourth, argue for the needs and benefits of theatrical programs for military dependent children. In spite of working through a system fraught with stifling government regulation and
Whether the Tuition Remission benefit is taxable is based upon the Program in which you or your eligible family member is enrolled, according to IRS regulations.. In general, you do not have to pay income tax on Tuition Remission benefits for undergraduate degree programs for yourself, your spouse and your dependent children (age 23 or younger as of the end of the calendar year). Because the IRS does not recognize the tax exemption of benefits extended to domestic partners, all Tuition Remission for registered domestic partners and their dependent children is considered taxable.. Under IRS regulations, up to $5,250 per year of graduate Tuition Remission benefits for employees are non-taxable. This means the first $5,250 of your graduate tuition costs will not be taxed. Anything over $5,250 will be considered taxable income, and the tax on the value of the benefit will be withheld from your paycheck. If the graduate level course work is job-related, it will be excluded from taxable income.. Under ...
AMERICA is embarking upon a dramatic new course in the way it provides assistance to our nations poorest families and their children. Recently enacted federal welfare reforms have altered both the purpose and the form of the nations principal cash-assistance program, Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). Retitled Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the program is no longer to serve as a long-term replacement for parents earnings. Rather, aid is now to be used to promote long-term self-sufficiency. The new law also gives states the responsibility for determining virtually all the standards and requirements for their TANF programs. Although in most states dramatic changes have not yet happened, the opportunity for revolutionary reform has never been greater. ...

Medicaid was established in 1965 through the Title XIX of the Social Security Act. This federal-state program was developed to finance health care for low-income persons, specifically the categorically needy and the medically needy. Categorically needy are those receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) (now Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and those who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) because they are aged, blind, or disabled. All states must cover the categorically needy. The medically needy are those who have enough money to live on, but not enough to pay for medical care. In 1972, an amendment to the Social Security Act added family planning services to the list of essential services. One purpose of the federal government was to ensure medical care for those on welfare, predominantly single, poor women, and their children. The link to cash assistance is a defining characteristic of the program and makes this an entitlement program.. The Medicaid program, ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This article examines the effects of the health insurance coverage mandate for young adults on household precautionary savings by focusing on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. The ACA dependent coverage mandate allows young adults to remain on their parents health insurance plans until their 26th birthday. Using the Survey of Income and Program Participation data, I find that the ACA mandate reduced precautionary savings for households with both parental employer-sponsored health insurance and dependent children aged 19-25 years. These households significantly reduced liquid assets by $897 after ACA, but they did not reduce savings in tax-deferred accounts or real estate assets.
A primary goal of transfer programs to the non-aged, non-disabled poor in the United States is to improve the well-being of children in poor families. Thus it is surprising that most of the considerable research which has been devoted to the study of transfer programs focuses on the incentive effects of the programs for parents rather than on the question of whether parental participation in such programs measurably benefits children. This paper begins to fill this gap in the literature by examining the relationship between a mothers participation during pregnancy in Aid to Families with Dependent Children, the Food Stamp Program, or housing assistance, and one of the least controversial measures of child welfare: the birth weight.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: We statistically sampled a population of 17,701 children in New Jersey who received Title IV-D services, were on public assistance, and whose non-custodial parents (NCP) were making child support payments and were court ordered to provide medical support. We estimate that the NCPs of approximately 5,930 of these children did not or could not provide the court ordered medical support, but could have contributed toward part or all of their children s medical costs paid by Medicaid from September 2001 through August 2002. We estimate these NCPs could have contributed about $2.5 million of the $11.8 million incurred by the State and Federal Governments to provide health care for these children. We recommended that New Jersey utilize the results of our review in determining whether existing child support guidelines should be modified to require NCPs to contribute towards the Medicaid costs of their dependent children. ...
Since 1991, Childrens Rehab Network has provided care for children whose medical conditions require continuous nursing, education and therapeutic care.. At the two Pediatric Prescribed Extended Care (PPEC) centers, located in South Miami and Miami Gardens, the multidisciplinary team provides children with an enriching schedule that includes pediatric rehabilitation, special education, medical care and socialization. The nurturing environment is less restrictive than hospitalization or home healthcare and gives parents peace of mind while they are at work, school or caring for other family members.. "Our centers focus on the psychological, developmental, physical, nutritional, educational and social needs of medically fragile and technologically dependent children," said Kellie Brannon, director of therapy. "Children are evaluated and a plan of care is developed that places the child and their family at the heart of the program, and successfully addresses every aspect of the childs ...
St. Patrick Center contracted the PPRCs Applied Research Division to evaluate a five-year initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Childrens Bureau.

The summer break is a magical world of fascinating experiences for children, who enjoy the long days of vacation and fun, of frolic and adventure. At the same time, it can be quite a headache for parents, who are kept busy figuring out how to keep the children occupied and who will supervise them when the adults go to work and take care of other occupations.. This "headache" is twice as daunting when we are speaking of children with special needs and impairments, who need extra attention and even closer supervision. Their world is cramped into the limited scope of their families and they get lost in the lack of routine, as dependent children who constantly need a loving look, a caress, and help in mobility. Their inability to adapt to to an unstructured day leads to chaos and misery both on the part of other family members and the child himself. The house is continually upside-down. Siblings cannot invite a friend over for a game or even read more than a page of a book without a sudden avalanche ...
With regular participation in a group activity, children learn respectful group behavior. One behavioral characteristic I have noticed in many homeschooled children is their desire to do things their own way. This a a desired trait which serves children well now and in adulthood. Group settings tend to lessen this trait and sometimes its to such a level which can create a dependent child not willing to step outside the box. Finding a balance between independence and being slightly reserved can be learned through group activities. In addition, by being patient and listening the child may be surprised with new interesting information when they least expected it ...
There are few same-gender programs, but the few that there are have programs to meet the specific needs that women have, such as those that have dependent children. There is also a growing concern for older women who have not had addiction problems in the past; those who have lost many people they love, have declining health, and have access to prescription drugs, may fall into addiction. Women who are retiring may be lost and confused now that they do not feel they have meaning in their life (Matheson, 2008).. One concern that has been reported by women when in a treatment program that is co-ed is that they are afraid of being a target and being harassed sexually by the male staff members and the males in the group; this is a concern because there is still such a bad stigma attached to females with addictive disorders and who are in treatment (Matheson, 2008).. Women face many problems other than their addiction when they seek treatment. In the past, when women had a problem with addiction, ...

Im happy with the engagement, because the groom is my cousin, and he will take care of me," said the young bride-to-be.. She revealed that she did not completed her primary education, "I was in school and I left it after I finished my second primary grade.". Instead, the girl had focused on working within the domestic household, "Im good at cooking and doing the housework.".

List of settlers under the direction of Benjamin Osler (Cape Archives CO 6138/2,31); Muster-roll and Log of HM Store Ship Weymouth (Public Record Office, London); Special Commissioner William Haywards notes (Cape Archives CO 8543). Richard Eva in the sailing list is referred to as James Eva in Special Commissioner Haywards notes. *Osler had a large family of 10 children, and informed the Colonial Department that he planned to leave three or four of the youngest with their friends at home until he had established himself at the Cape. Only four children were entered on the official list, but it appears that at least three others did in fact emigrate with their parents. Susannah Osler, aged 20, is known to have married John Colman of Cocks party a month after the Weymouth reached Algoa Bay, and when Benjamin Osler died in 1821 his widow was left on the location with six dependent children - a son of 15 and five daughters between 4 and 14.

Last night everything seemed well enough. Reagan was still tense and doing a lot of the movements when I put her to bed. I was hoping shed just drift off to sleep once in a dark, soothing environment. Didnt happen. I woke at 1:30am to find her still wide awake. I put her in our bed where she laughed and kicked us until she finally drifted off to sleep. But when she woke up this morning the tide had changed. She woke crying and has cried every waking moment since. Poor thing shes just completely and totally miserable. She threw up a few times this morning...a lot of foam mainly (so I decided to give her some periactin and now she hasnt peed all day). With all the chaos, I was having second thoughts about going in for her nephrology appt today but we went anyway...thankfully she slept most of the time. We waited in the waiting room for what seemed like eternity (especially considering we were in a super rush to get back home for our yearly Medically Dependent Childrens Program review). ...

Highway Reauthorization Tax Act of 2004 by United States Congress House of Represen, 9781240610358, available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.
The first major Congressional step that could be taken immediately to bolster PDMP programs and combat the growing prescription drug health problem would be to reauthorize the National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting Act (NASPER). We applaud the U.S. House of Representatives for passing its NASPER reauthorization bill, H.R. 1725, and encourage the Senate to act on this important legislation swiftly. This program was created in 2005 to allow the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to award grants to states to establish or enhance PDMPs, and establish best practices. NASPER has not been funded since a prohibition was included in the FY2011 continuing resolution (P.L. 112-10); however, we are confident that reauthorization and full funding of NASPER would be a significant step toward reversing the current trajectory of abuse.. We thank you for your consideration of this request, and hope that you will consider each of the stakeholders on this letter to be partners in ...

The Colorado Works Program is a work-focused public assistance program that started on July 1,1997. Colorado Works can provide individuals and families with temporary assistance, support services including work supports, and education and training.The assistance and supports provided are designed to help Coloradans on their journey to become independent of government assistance and ultimately self-sufficient.. The program is also designed to give county departments of human services the ability and flexibility to work with families to meet their needs. The Colorado Works Program varies from county to county. Each county designs and runs the Colorado Works program and when doing so must follow all federal and state laws and rules.. Your county may refer to the benefits you receive as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits. This is because TANF is the federal program that took the place of the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program.. ...
Over the past decade, public assistance caseloads have increased rapidly to an historical high point and then decreased with even greater speed to their lowest level in decades. Several recent papers have focused on the rise in Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) caseloads in the early 1990s and the turn-around in the mid-1990s. This research indicates that both macroeconomic factors and program factors appear to be important for these changes. A key question is whether these recent declines are permanent, and how much they might turn around in a more sluggish economy. This paper focuses on the relationship between recent caseload changes and the overall economy, comparing estimates from a wide variety of models using both annual and monthly data. By using monthly data, which is available through late 1998, this paper also presents several rough estimates of the impact of welfare reform post-1996. The Food Stamp program has also experienced major program changes, although it has remained

This past week, initial briefs on the validity of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) (PPACA) were filed in the Supreme Court. Together, 26 states argued that the expansion of Medicaid under PPACA is unprecedented and infringes on the powers reserved to the states under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.. It is true that PPACA expands the Medicaid program to require states to make certain benefits available to people who were never eligible before. When Medicaid was enacted in 1965, states were not required to participate, and eligibility was limited to categories of individuals who were eligible for cash assistance- Aid to Families with Dependent children (AFDC), Old Age Assistance and state-sponsored assistance to disabled adults.. Over the years, Congress has raised the income limits for mandatory Medicaid coverage of low-income children and pregnant women and certain groups of individuals with disabilities. The states argue that most additions to ...

Youth is the period of time during which dependent children develop into independent adults. It is also a critical time for establishing and reinforcing good health and social behaviours. Young people who are unable to make a smooth transition to adulthood can face significant difficulties and barriers in both the short and long term..

It brings together data from a wide variety of sources, including information on health status, health outcomes and factors influencing the health and wellbeing of young Australians, such as behaviour, environment, family, community and socioeconomic factors. In recognising that young peoples health and wellbeing are influenced by a multitude of factors, the AIHW has broadened the list of indicators included in earlier reports to include burden of disease, ...

In the context of low to moderate levels of physical activity and increased prevalence of childhood obesity, socio-economic variations in patterns of expenditure on active and screen recreation are of public health relevance. For the first time, comparative information is available on patterns of expenditure on active and screen recreation. In 2003-4 Australian households with dependent children spent about $14.58 per week on active recreation, which was about half of average expenditure on screen recreation.. Patterns of expenditure on active and screen recreation varied substantially by socio-economic factors. Increased household income was associated with increased odds of promoting active recreation and active recreation over screen recreation, and decreased odds of promoting screen recreation. This effect was independent of the effects of socio-economic status. Most simply, this suggests that the cost of active recreation is a limiting factor for some families in supporting active ...
IVF, however, submits the child to a secular governance of his identity. His personhood is decided by arbitrary criteria determined by others. These may be biological, psychological or sociological criteria. The necessity of seeing a neural streak, for example, assumes that a visible nervous system must begin to form before the embryo is declared a person. Some make a decision based on the prediction of a certain quality of life for the child. Any of the many varied criteria depend on a subjective dominance of a strong adult over a weak and dependent child. But human identity needs to be above all the systems, otherwise the person enters into a master-slave dialectic, as Dr. Stanislaw Grygiel has said. [16] The Doctor/Technician. The doctors, medical technicians and researchers are also human subjects whose acts have moral content. What do they do in the IVF process and how can we and they evaluate their own actions?. The physician who heads up a group of doctors and medical technicians sees ...

Drug testing welfare recipients (and then disqualifying those who fail from collecting benefits) is an effective method for saving taxpayer money. in 1986, during the administration of President Ronald Reagan, the federal government began recommending workplace drug testing as part of the War on Drugs. By 1988, any employer who had a contract of $25,000 or more with…

a)Basic rules. (1) The agency must reduce its payment to an institution, for services provided to an individual specified in paragraph (b) of this section, by the amount that remains after deducting the amounts specified in paragraphs (c) and (d) of this section, from the individuals total income. (2) The individuals income must be determined in accordance with paragraph (e) of this section. (3) Medical expenses must be determined in accordance with paragraph (f) of this section. (b)Applicability. This section applies to the following individuals in medical institutions and intermediate care facilities: (1) Individuals receiving cash assistance under AFDC who are eligible for Medicaid under § 435.110 and individuals eligible under § 435.121. (2) Individuals who would be eligible for AFDC, SSI, or an optional State supplement except for their institutional status and who are eligible for Medicaid under § 435.211. (3) Aged, blind, and disabled individuals who are eligible for Medicaid, under ...
The conditional welfare state is not only invasive, it is heavily paternalistic. Restrictions on eligibility are imposed in order to encourage welfare recipients to live their lives in a way that the state thinks is good for them: dont have kids out of wedlock, dont do drugs, and get (or stay) married. And benefits are often given in-kind rather than in cash precisely because the state doesnt trust welfare recipients to make what it regards as wise choices about how to spend their money. This, despite the fact that both economic theory and a growing body of empirical evidence suggest that individuals are better off with the freedom of choice that a cash grant brings. In-kind grant programs like SNAP (food stamps) persist in their present form not because they are effective but because they are the product of a classic Bootleggers-and-Baptists coalition: well-meaning members of the public like the idea that welfare recipients have to use their vouchers on food rather than alcohol and ...
Child care expenses and lack of available child care continue to place giant financial and logistical burdens on welfare recipients, despite an influx of child care dollars through the Child Care and Development Block grant. The NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund found that 55% of welfare recipients surveyed in New York City reported that they had received no help from case managers in securing child care. A 1999 review of welfare leaver studies by the Center for Law and Social Policy found that fewer than 50% of families studied were receiving child care subsidies. Given consistent findings that low-income mothers spend a far larger portion of their incomes on child care compared to better-off families, it is clear that a large proportion of women s child care needs are still going unmet. Similarly, while 32 states have adopted the Family Violence Option and have policies and procedures in place to address domestic violence among welfare recipients, dozens of states are currently reported to ...
The 1996 fed. welfare law de-linked eligibility for Medicaid (Medi-Cal in Calif.) from the receipt of cash assist. Congress required states to provide Medicaid coverage to recipients of state programs funded under the Temporary Assist. for Needy Families block grant, as well as any individuals who would have been eligible for AFDC, the former cash assist. program. Individuals no longer need to receive cash assist. in order to qualify for Medi-Cal. This paper examines Medi-Cal enrollment trends in light of the substantial drop in welfare caseloads in recent years. ...

Abstract: We examine how participation in the Food Stamp and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Programs is associated with self-reported household food hardships, using data from a longitudinal survey of low-income families living in Boston, Chicago and San Antonio. In addition to the measures of hardships and program participation, the survey includes measures of income, wealth, social resources, disability, physical health and family structure, measures that help us to account for selection between recipient and non-recipient households. For our multivariate analyses, we estimate multiple indicator multiple cause models that are modified to incorporate discrete outcome variables and to account for longitudinal data. Estimates from these models reveal that participation in the Food Stamp Program is associated with fewer food hardships, while participation in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program has no detectable association with hardships.. FOOD STAMPS, TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE ...
Employed mothers who divorce are much less likely to become welfare recipients than unemployed mothers, but a divorce often increases a households dependence on government assistance.. Anywhere from 17 to 40 percent of mothers with minor children receive welfare benefits, and 17 to 25 percent of wives who divorce after two to eight years of marriage receive AFDC benefits (Aid to Families with Dependent Children, now called TANF, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families).. Some conservative critics claims welfare benefits decrease the incentives for remarriage, a path out of poverty for men and women alike, but in general divorced mothers receive welfare for three to four years, on average, and begin to work themselves out of poverty.. In Social Democratic countries, because womens welfare benefits usually increase sharply (and, in some cases, double) following divorce, womens average net income increases by 32 percent, but divorced women enjoy different degrees of economic well-being ...
Public assistance programs are government welfare programs such as food stamps and cash aid which are available through counties in the United States. Welfare reform requirements set by the federal government under southerners Clinton and Bush ended Aid for Families with Dependent Children and replaced it with Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. A person receiving public assistance must be working or participate in Welfare to Work activities for 32-35 hours per week to continue to receive the cash aid. There is also a total lifetime limit of 60 months to receive the assistance. [1] ...

I am concerned that not only is SCHIP a socialistic program but look at the title of it. The word CHIP is embedded in the title. This whole push for socialized medicine (Michael Moore being one of the pushers)is a very dangerous prospect. As our health system stands right now, it is controlled by the corporations which IS the government. The corporations are meshed with the government. I think thats called fascism. On the one hand Michael Moore tells us how horrible our healthcare system is and that it is the fault of the corporations. Then he tells us that we need government run healthcare......which is ONE with the corporations. This makes no sense. Michael Moore appears to be controlled opposition. He is making the people think that the Elites solution (government controlled health care) is their idea so we will end up clamoring for it and accepting it. ...

Federal Means-Tested Public Benefits. To date, Federal agencies administering benefit programs have determined that Federal means-tested public benefits include Food Stamps, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and the State Child Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)... State Means-Tested Public Benefits. Each State will determine which, if any, of its public benefits are means-tested. If a State determines that it has programs which meet this definition, it is encouraged to provide notice to the public on which programs are included. Check with the State public assistance office to determine which, if any, State assistance programs have been determined to be State means-tested public benefits... Programs Not Included: The following Federal and State programs are not included as means-tested benefits: emergency Medicaid; short-term, non-cash emergency relief; services provided under the National School Lunch and Child Nutrition Acts; ...
This column by Susan A. Carleson, CEO of the ACRU and the Carleson Center for Public Policy (CCPP), was published March 25, 2011 on the American Thinker website.. With federal and state budgets exploding, welfare reform is once again on the menu.. Just about everyone agrees that the 1996 welfare reform was a huge success. By 2009, the number of dependent families had dropped by two-thirds, and federal spending for cash welfare assistance remained stable at $16.5 billion a year. But most importantly, the 96 reform gave dignity to millions by breaking the vicious cycle of multi-generational poverty. Last week, the Republican Study Committee unveiled its Welfare Reform Act of 2011, which includes work requirements for Food Stamps and a mandatory cap on total welfare spending. It was described as "building upon the success" of the 1996 welfare reform. While admirable in its focus on reducing government spending, the new bill does not include the key reform that led to success in 1996 - block ...
First, welfare recipients must pay back to government most of their employment earnings through a mechanism known as the "welfare taxback." While the rules vary by jurisdiction, recipients effectively pay back to government most of their earnings.. Second, income taxes and payroll taxes, notably Employment Insurance premiums and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) contributions, can further reduce overall income. Higher earnings also mean lower tax credits, such as the GST credit.. Then theres the loss of "income-in-kind," like supplementary health and dental benefits.. For most welfare recipients, these multiple factors mean that the cost of employment is very high.. The good news is that plenty can be done by both the federal and provincial/territorial governments to tear down the "welfare wall.". Ottawa could beef up the Working Income Tax Benefit (WITB), which supplements low earnings to ensure that paid work is a more attractive option than welfare. It also assists welfare recipients make the tough ...
Quality of care, Medicaid and the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), as well as Medicare integrity are among the most significant management and performance challenges facing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
PDUFA fees provided 52% of the Human Drugs Program funding for FY2012, accounting for more than 2,000 full-time equivalent employees. Therefore, as each reauthorization deadline approaches, FDA, industry groups, and most Members of Congress see PDUFA as must-pass legislation. Congress originally intended PDUFA to diminish the backlog of new drug applications at FDA and shorten the time from submission to decision. The general view is that PDUFA has succeeded. FDA has added review staff and reduced its review times. At each reauthorization, however, discussion returns to certain issues in the context of PDUFA that also reflect broader FDA concerns. The issues-and results-differ. PDUFA II expanded the user fee programs scope to include activities related to the investigational phases of a new drugs development, and to increase FDA communications with industry and consumer groups. PDUFA III again expanded the scope of activities that user fees could support to include both preclinical development ...
Acy Cummings, a 55-year-old tenant farmer from North Carolina, didnt bring statistics and eloquent statements to Washington yesterday to support his position.. Neither did Mary Anna Minger, a 60-year-old North Carolinian who said she has been living on $198 a month.. But by all accounts, Cummings and Minger were the star witnesses at a House hearing on legislation designed to reform the nations food stamp program, which is scheduled to expire Sept.30.. Part of that legislation, sponsored by Rep. Frederick R. Richmond (D-N.Y.), would eliminate the so-called purchase requirement. This would no increase the benefits of households already on the food stamp rolls, but would remove an obstacle that prevents many needy families from participating, according to Richmond.. A similar bill was introduced March 1 by Sens. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) and George McGovern (D-S.D.). The Carter administration is also considering such a proposal.. Cummings and Minger said they agreed with the idea.. Cummings, a stooped, ...

The National MS Society and MS activists around the country applaud Representatives Jim Langevin (RI-2) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-5) for recently introducing the Lifespan Respite Care Reauthorization Act of 2011(H.R. 3266). This bipartisan effort is critically important for people living with MS and for their family caregivers. Up to one quarter of individuals living with MS will need long-term care services at some point. Often, a family member steps into the role of primary caregiver, becoming some of the 65 million family caregivers that provide 80% of our nations long-term care. ...
I dont give money to the state of Indiana so that the state of Indiana can give money to someone who is going to use that money to buy illegal drugs to hurt himself and perhaps others. If the statesmen believe that the state should take the step of testing people for illegal drug-use before giving them money, in order to reduce the chance that the state will contribute to illegal drug-use and all the harm that accompanies it, I am all for that. But I suppose there are bound to be some who will insist that the far more compassionate thing to do would be to give fresh, clean needles along with the welfare-checks ...

Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed food assistance programs serving American Indians, focusing on: (1) which programs provided assistance to Indians living on reservations; (2) whether the food packages distributed under the programs were adequate to meet Indians nutritional needs; and (3) whether Indians had any special nutritional needs that the programs were not addressing.. GAO found that: (1) the Food Stamp Program and the Food Distribution on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) are the two largest programs serving Indians living on reservations; (2) FDPIR provides commodity food to eligible low-income households; (3) in calendar year 1988, combined participation in FDPIR and the Food Stamp Program ranged from 38 to 90 percent on the four reservations GAO reviewed; (4) nonfederal food assistance efforts on reservations are small compared with federal food assistance programs; (5) FDPIR was intended to provide eligible households with a supplemental food source, and opinions varied ...
This World Food Programme Report analyzes national, regional and international responses to food crises. Authors look at three dimensions: 1) the levels, trends, and patterns of food assistance; 2) the primary challenges facing design and delivery of food assistance in different contexts; 3) innovations in food assistance that are being developed to address these challenges. The Report finds that while funding for food assistance is high, effectiveness is held in check by several factors.

Although many families with low incomes are eligible for various health insurance programs, more than three of five eligible children are not enrolled in Medicaid or the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). "Churning" in enrollment is also common: over half of low-income family members who repeatedly experience periods without coverage leave Medicaid and then re-enroll later. Focusing on eight states, this project will examine factors that affect program enrollment and coverage stability, including a new federal rule requiring people to document their citizenship when applying for or renewing Medicaid coverage. In Phase 1, state officials and others convened to discuss the implications of the new citizenship documentation requirements and how these effects might be measured. In Phase 2, the researchers will analyze administrative data to determine the impact of the new Medicaid rule and other factors. Findings will inform debate over extending public coverage to a greater number of ...
Despite expansions in the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), public health insurance coverage did not increase overall between 1998 and 1999. The percentage of nonelderly Americans covered by Medicaid and other government-sponsored health insurance coverage did not change between 1998 and 1999, though some children benefited from expansions in government-funded programs. The percentage of children in families just above the poverty level without health insurance coverage declined dramatically, from 27.2 percent uninsured in 1998 to 19.7 percent uninsured in 1999. Some of the decline can be attributed to expansions in Medicaid and S-CHIP, but it appears that expansions in employment-based health insurance and individually purchased coverage had an even larger effect than expansion of S-CHIP ...
