"Carving out" conditions from global capitation rates: protecting high-cost patients, physicians, and health plans in a managed care environment. (2/59)

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)

Catastrophic antiphospholipid antibody syndrome in systemic lupus erythematosus: an autopsy case report of a young woman. (3/59)

Catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome (CAPS) is a severe variant of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) characterized by disseminated microangiopathy that results in multiorgan failure. CAPS mainly occurs in association with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Clinically, CAPS mimics disseminated SLE vasculitis, intravascular coagulation (DIC), and particularly thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). We describe an autopsy case of young woman with CAPS in SLE, which is difficult to differentiate from TTP secondary to SLE.  (+info)

A flexible benefits tax credit for health insurance and more. (4/59)

This essay outlines a concept for a "flexible benefits" tax credit for expanding health insurance coverage and other purposes such as retirement savings plans (with potential withdrawals for higher education, first-home ownership, and catastrophic medical expenses). Two examples are presented. The advantages of a flexible benefits tax credit are considered in terms of efficient use of the budget surplus to help meet the varied (and changing) needs of American families, to eliminate major national gaps in health insurance and pension coverage, and to advance other objectives. If the budget surplus is used wisely, political decisionmakers could achieve health insurance coverage for most uninsured workers and children and assure a future with real economic security for American families.  (+info)

Reduction of catastrophic health care expenditures by a community-based health insurance scheme in Gujarat, India: current experiences and challenges. (5/59)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the Self Employed Women's Association's Medical Insurance Fund in Gujarat in terms of insurance coverage according to income groups, protection of claimants from costs of hospitalization, time between discharge and reimbursement, and frequency of use. METHODS: One thousand nine hundred and thirty claims submitted over six years were analysed. FINDINGS: Two hundred and fifteen (11%) of 1927 claims were rejected. The mean household income of claimants was significantly lower than that of the general population. The percentage of households below the poverty line was similar for claimants and the general population. One thousand seven hundred and twelve (1712) claims were reimbursed: 805 (47%) fully and 907 (53%) at a mean reimbursement rate of 55.6%. Reimbursement more than halved the percentage of catastrophic hospitalizations (>10% of annual household income) and hospitalizations resulting in impoverishment. The average time between discharge and reimbursement was four months. The frequency of submission of claims was low (18.0/1000 members per year: 22-37% of the estimated frequency of hospitalization). CONCLUSIONS: The findings have implications for community-based health insurance schemes in India and elsewhere. Such schemes can protect poor households against the uncertain risk of medical expenses. They can be implemented in areas where institutional capacity is too weak to organize nationwide risk-pooling. Such schemes can cover poor people, including people and households below the poverty line. A trade off exists between maintaining the scheme's financial viability and protecting members against catastrophic expenditures. To facilitate reimbursement, administration, particularly processing of claims, should happen near claimants. Fine-tuning the design of a scheme is an ongoing process - a system of monitoring and evaluation is vital.  (+info)

Abdominal catastrophe revisited: the risk and outcome of enteric peritoneal contamination. (6/59)

OBJECTIVE: Peritonitis from a visceral source is associated with striking morbidity and mortality in patients treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD). Surgical intervention for both diagnosis and repair is definitive. However, because the antecedents of enteric injury leading to peritonitis are unpredictable, no preventive strategy has been proposed or adopted. The goal of this study was to examine risk factors influencing the occurrence and outcome of anatomically documented peritonitis of enteric origin. DESIGN: Retrospective chart and database review. SETTING: Peritoneal dialysis unit in tertiary-care referral hospital. PATIENTS: 330 patients treated with PD for end-stage renal disease between 1988 and 2000. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prevalence of peritonitis of anatomically documented enteric origin over two consecutive time periods within the study interval: period 1, from 1 January 1988 through 30 June 1996; period 2, from 1 July 1996 through 30 June 2000. RESULTS: At least 1 episode of peritonitis occurred in 202 of 330 patients during the entire study period of 12.5 years (600.74 patient-years of care). There were 543 episodes of peritonitis. Anatomically documented visceral Injury caused bacterial peritonitis in 41 patients with a total of 63 discrete episodes, an incidence rate of 0.1048 per patient-year. Peritonitis-free survival was compared between the two periods using Kaplan-Meier analysis. The curve representing risk distribution for anatomically documented visceral peritonitis remained constant over the two periods, in contrast to improvements found in all other types of peritonitis, taken as a group (p= 0.044). Logistic regression modeling showed that the only risk factor associated with development of anatomically documented visceral peritonitis was older age. There was no influence of race, sex, time on PD, and underlying disease etiology. 31 deaths were attributed to peritonitis during the study period. The mortality rate from enteric peritonitis due to visceral injury was 46.3% (19/41 cases), compared to 7.5% for all other peritonitis taken as a group (12/161 cases, p < 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: The experience at University Hospitals of Cleveland suggests that abdominal catastrophe occurs in approximately 10% of all patients treated with PD, and is associated with high mortality, which has not changed over time. Therefore, peritonitis due to spontaneous visceral injury presents a great diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. It is important to develop a research strategy to understand this devastating complication.  (+info)

How and why the health insurance system will collapse. (7/59)

The advocates of defined-contribution health plans extol the virtues of consumer-driven health care, consumer choice, and empowered consumers as solutions to the problems--particularly the rapidly growing costs--of employer-sponsored health benefits. This paper argues that the widespread use of defined-contribution plans, with more consumer choice and more knowledgeable consumers, will lead to the erosion of the social contract on which health insurance must be based, with healthier employees subsidizing the care of older and sicker ones, and a death spiral of adverse selection. If unchecked by government intervention, these trends will lead to the collapse of employer-sponsored health insurance.  (+info)

Wealth patterns among elderly Americans: implications for health care affordability. (8/59)

This paper estimates the ability of the elderly to pay for necessary health care services and emerging technologies. Projections from the Long Term Care Financing Model paint a promising picture of the income and assets that elders in the future will have available to support discretionary, uncovered health care and service costs. Nevertheless, policymakers should pay close attention to the finances of the "Tweeners"--people who are middle class with low levels of discretionary assets available for health and long-term care.  (+info)

Sixty six per cent of patients who survive an initial catastrophic APS event remained symptom free with anticoagulation during an average follow up of 67.2 months. Twenty six per cent of the survivors developed further APS related events and the mortality rate of these patients was about 25%.. Doctors have been increasingly recognising catastrophic APS but still many unresolved questions exist. The optimal treatment combination at the time of a catastrophic APS event is controversial,6 but anticoagulation is the preferred treatment in the long term. Although short term outcomes of catastrophic APS are documented in two different series,3,4 the long term outcomes are unknown. This is the first study demonstrating that catastrophic APS recurrence is unusual and patients treated with anticoagulation generally have a stable course.. Long term anticoagulation with warfarin is the standard of care to prevent a recurrent vascular event in patients with APS. The recurrence rate in untreated patients is ...
A catastrophic illness is a severe illness requiring prolonged hospitalization or recovery. Examples would include coma, cancer, leukemia, heart attack or stroke. These illnesses usually involve high costs for hospitals, doctors and medicines and may incapacitate the person from working, creating a financial hardship. They are the type intended to be covered by high-deductible health plans. Research indicates that the unusual economic environment of the delivery of catastrophic illness care encourages the use of innovative therapies. Medicare contains a benefit for catastrophic illness.

Findings of our study indicate that sociodemographic factors including income and age are important determinants of catastrophic medical expenses, which is consistent with what Shi and colleagues reported in the central and western regions of China [3], as well as with findings in other developing countries [14, 16]. Nevertheless, we have two findings that are different from those of other studies [3]. Our first finding is that households with members at age of 5 years or younger had much higher risk of incurring catastrophic medical expenses. There are several explanations. It is quite common in China that parents, even in poor families, are willing to seek the best care possible for their children, especially for their young children who are more susceptible to illness [17]. Moreover, with an exception of Shanghai where an inpatient care insurance program for children under 18 is available, no health insurance programs for children exist in other areas [18].. Our second new finding of the ...
Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (CAPS) is a rare condition in which life-threatening blood clots form in multiple organs simultaneously and can lead to multi-organ system failure and death. The causes of CAPS are not entirely understood, but CAPS episodes are often triggered by stressful events such as infections, surgery, or trauma. For patients who survive an episode of CAPS, permanent kidney failure is not uncommon because the kidneys are the organ system most frequently affected in CAPS. Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for end-stage kidney disease, but patients with a history of CAPS are exceptionally high-risk kidney transplant recipients because the chance that surgery itself could trigger a life-threatening or transplant-threatening episode of CAPS is significant. As a result, patients with CAPS are not generally considered candidates for transplantation. Despite this, these patients have a severely decreased life-expectancy on dialysis and their ...

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Thirty years ago, the family of a victim of a heart attack or stroke was more likely to have to contend with the loss of a loved one.1 Now, advances in medicine, prevention, improvement in early detection and other health care innovations have led to higher survival rates of these and other critical illnesses.

Using consumption expenditure data of the National Sample Survey 2004-2005, this paper estimates the size of elderly poor and tests the hypotheses that elderly households are not economically better-off compared to non-elderly households in India. Poverty estimates are derived under three scenarios-by applying the official cut-off point of the poverty line to household consumption expenditure (unadjusted), consumption expenditure adjusted to household size and consumption expenditure adjusted to household composition. Results show that an estimated 18 million elderly in India are living below the poverty line. On adjusting the consumption expenditure to household size and composition, there are no significant differences in the incidence of poverty among elderly and non-elderly households in India. This is in contrast to the notion that elderly households are better off than non-elderly households in India. Based on the findings, we suggest that the age dimension should
Many low and middle income countries are seeking ways to pursue the goal of universal coverage. To secure access to adequate health care for all at an affordable price, it will be necessary to increase the extent of prepayment and reduce the reliance on out-of-pocket payment [1, 2]. Tax-based health financing and social health insurance, or a mix of them, are the most frequently used mechanisms for achieving this goal.. The Chinese government has been developing rural health insurance (Cooperative Medical Scheme, CMS) since the 1950s. By the late 1970s, approximately 90% of the rural population were covered by the CMS. The shift to a market economy and the demise of the rural communes in the 1980s was matched by the related decline in the CMS [3]. This left large sectors of the rural population uncovered by health insurance despite attempts by central and local governments to revive similar schemes in the 1990s [4]. In 2002 the State Council and the Central Committee of the Communist Party of ...
Background: The rate of caesarean delivery (CD) in rural China has been rapidly increasing in recent decades. Due to the exorbitant costs associated with CD, paying for this expensive procedure is often a great challenge for the majority of rural families. Since 2003, the Chinese government has re-established the NewCooperative Medical Scheme (NCMS), aimed to improve the access of essential healthcare to rural residents and reduce financial burden owing to high out of pocket payments. This paper seeks to test the hypothesis that NCMS may provide service users and providers with financial incentives to select CD. It also assesses the effect of different health insurance reimbursement strategies of NCMS on CD rates in rural China. Methods: Mixed quantitative and qualitative methods were adopted for data collection. Two cross-sectional household surveys were conducted with women having babies delivered in 2006 and 2009; 2326 and 1515 women, respectively, from the study sites were interviewed using ...

The term "health disparities" refers to those differences in health status experienced by different demographic groups that occur in the context of social or economic inequality. Health disparities affect access to services and quality of care, which is reflected by the increase in the morbidity and mortality of chronic diseases.1. In countries where medical care for chronic kidney disease (CKD) is not universal, treatment for this disease represents a devastating medical, social and economic problem for patients and their families; thus, the costs of treating this disease are considered as "catastrophic health expenditures." A catastrophic health expenditure can be defined as one where the whole family spends more than 30% of their income to pay for the familys healthcare.2. In industrialised countries, CKD disproportionately affects socially disadvantaged groups, such as ethnic minorities and people with a low socioeconomic income.3 Multiple studies conducted in the United States and Canada ...

The paper aims at discussing techniques for administering one implementation issue that often arises in the application of particle filters: sample impoverishment. Dealing with such problem can significantly improve the performance of particle filters and can make the difference between success and failure. Sample impoverishment occurs because of the reduction in the number of truly distinct sample values. A simple solution can be to increase the number of particles, which can quickly lead to unreasonable computational demands, which only delays the inevitable sample impoverishment. There are more intelligent ways of dealing with this problem, such as roughening and prior editing, procedures to be discussed herein. The nonlinear particle filter is based on the bootstrap filter for implementing recursive Bayesian filters. The application consists of determining the orbit of an artificial satellite using real data from the GPS receivers. The standard differential equations describing the orbital motion
In China, the rural and urban health care systems differ [19]. Urban residents are covered by a compulsory employment-based basic medical insurance scheme and an urban resident scheme. For rural areas, the central government of China launched the NCMS in 2003. The NCMS is a voluntary health insurance scheme designed to relieve the excessive financial burden of health services in rural areas [20]. The NCSM is considered a primary medical security system in rural China, primarily providing financial protection against catastrophic illness [21]. The risk pooling unit under NCMS is the county, and every county has its own reimbursement scheme. The NCMS coverage rate in Donghai County is over 98% in all villages. The reimbursement rates within the county border and outside the county border differ. For inpatient services received outside the administrative boundary, the reimbursement rate is 50%, lower than that for those received within the county. For outpatient services received outside the ...

Spicer also said its up the House leadership to schedule a vote, but we continue to move closer and closer to that time.. In a series of radio interviews Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Republicans were getting "extremely close" to having the votes they need in the House. But asked by WCLO radio in his hometown of Janesville whether there would be a vote this week, Ryan said, "We havent made that decision yet.". He touted the latest changes to the bill, asserting that with added funding for high-risk pools, "were making sure that we have three or four layers of protections for people with pre-existing conditions." Ryan also said that by promoting high-risk pools and directly subsidizing people with catastrophic illnesses, "you dramatically lower the price of premiums for everyone else buying health insurance.". But critics said the Upton ...
She is 51, a single mother of two grown children, each with children of their own and limited incomes. A great employee and a person willing to help anybody, she has the misfortune of earning an income that places her in the Medicaid gap. She cannot afford the premium required for regular participation in the Affordable Care Act and thus is uninsured. She suffered a catastrophic illness which qualified her for the indigent care that all hospitals must provide in life and death situations; her life was saved via emergency surgery. Indigent care hospital expenses must be absorbed by the hospitals budget, and increase everyones total cost. There is no funding available for required follow-up care, because it is not considered immediately life endangering. Her church and friends have pieced together the bare minimum interim care she needs while trying to figure out a way to get the other assistance she must have to return to a healthy life ...
Easy, I make over $100k a year. I want to pay as little as I can get away with to the US government, and I work for them! I find it hard to believe that people want the government to make decisions for them. Youre actually happy you cant shop around for an insurance plan that suits you best? For example when I was younger and without children I had a minimal plan. It basically covered me in the case of a catastrophic illness and left me to pay for anything else. It was cheap and I got to keep more of the money I worked for. Now that Im in my forties and have a couple of small children and a wife to look after I have the most extensive plan my company offers. Its more expensive but the health of my children is worth it and Im less risk adverse with their well being at stake. Now I dont think its perfect, I wish I knew the root cause of health-care costs rising so dramatically, but its certainly better than some giant government bureaucracy mandating "Thou shalt use this health ...
What is Long-Term Caute Care?. Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals became a part of the American healthcare system as a means of providing the extended hospital stay for patients with the gravest of illnesses, and those who require an extended period of recovery following catastrophic illness or trauma. They are licensed in the same way as other hospitals, however, their role is to provide acute care to patients with specific problems that cannot always be resolved in a typical short-term hospital stay. Some of the diagnoses we specialize in are;. ...

Aortic stenosis is a catastrophic event that strikes aging individuals, but may be thwarted by a supplement that was introduced in 1999.
The deputy chairman of the Planning Commission, Montek Singh Ahluwalia told reporters Tuesday that the poverty line was meant to reflect conditions of "absolute poverty" in the country.. "This poverty line is not the line that we think a person can comfortably survive… the poverty line has been identified as a rock-bottom, bare subsistence kind of line," he said.. Indias poverty line measurements are significantly lower than those used by international organisations like the World Bank, which assesses poverty according to the percentage of people who live on less than $1.25 a day.. The figures from the Planning Commission, an influential government body that formulates national five-year economic plans, suggested overall poverty levels fell from 37.2 percent in 2004-05 to 29.8 percent in 2009-10.. The statistics mean about 360 million Indians now live in poverty, according to the Planning Commission.. The data is used to determine access to welfare benefits for Indias 1.2 billion population. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Many authors have insisted on the necessity of defining poverty as a multi-dimensional concept rather than relying on income or consumption expenditures per capita. Yet, not much has actually been done to include the various dimensions of deprivation into the practical definition and measurement of poverty. Existing attempts along that direction consist of aggregating various attributes into a single index through some arbitrary function and defining a poverty line and associated poverty measures on the basis of that index. All this is merely redefining the more general concept of poverty, which then essentially remains a uni-dimensional concept. On the contrary, the present paper suggests that the only way to truly take into account the multi-dimensionality of poverty is to specify a poverty line for each dimension of poverty and to consider that a person is poor if he/she falls below at least one of these various lines. The paper then explores ways to combine these

This paper assesses long-term impacts of vegetable and polyculture fish production technologies on a variety of measures of household and individual well-being in Bangladesh. In 1996-1997, households were surveyed in three sites where nongovernmental organizations and extension programs were disseminating agricultural technologies-about two to six years after the technologies were first introduced. The same households were reinterviewed in 2006�2007. Using nearest-neighbor matching to construct a statistical comparison group, we find that long-term impacts differ across agricultural technology interventions and across outcomes. Long-term impacts on household-level consumption expenditures and asset accumulation are, in general, insignificant in the improved vegetables sites, but are positive and significant in the individually operated fishponds sites. Interestingly, impacts on individual nutrient intake, nutrient adequacy, and nutritional status do not necessarily follow the pattern of ...
Dr Ejarque and his co-author then set out to understand and explain their observations by specifying and estimating a model of rational consumer behaviour. This built on a standard life-cycle model which has people beginning to save for precautionary reasons early in their life but then, after the age of 40, accumulating wealth for retirement. However, introducing a house purchase to this setting changed behaviour dramatically!. The research compared the outcomes of this standard estimated model with an identical set-up that excluded a house purchase. In this scenario, households were exposed to the same income levels but were renting. Dr Ejarque and Dr Leth-Petersen assessed behaviour at the point that would have been just after a house purchase, looking at consumption expenditure reactions to income changes. Their research showed that, without the house purchase, consumption levels fell significantly less in response to income shocks. Dr Ejarque explains: One change was that, because the ...
Based on the U.S data for 1965-IQ to 1983-IQ (n=76), James and Adibi obtained the folowwing regression to explain personal consumption expenditure in the U.S. ^ Y = -10.96 + .93X(sub 2t) - 2.09X(sub 3t) t= (-3.33) (249.06).
So, which side should one look at: the absolute number or the rate of decline in poverty? "Both absolute numbers and the rate of reduction in poverty are important," said former Planning Commission member and poverty estimation expert Abhijeet Sen. Notably, the Rangarajan panel made a sharper revision in the poverty line in urban areas than in rural areas. So, while the line was raised from Rs 27 (Tendulkar committee method) in 2009-10 to Rs 32 in 2011-12 in rural areas, a rise of 18.5 per cent, the line for urban areas was raised from Rs 33 to Rs 47, representing an increase of 42 per cent. According to the Tendulkar committee method, the poverty line in urban areas was 22 per cent higher than in rural areas in 2011-12, but the same was 47 per cent according to the Rangarajan panel ...

Fungi are single or multi-celled organisms that break down organic materials, such as rotting wood, in order to absorb their nutrients. Neither plant nor animal, they range from mushrooms to single-celled yeast.. Scientists were investigating organic chemicals trapped in an Italian sedimentary rock formation when they found evidence that an extinct fungus feasted on dead wood during a time when the worlds forests had been catastrophically eradicated.1 What could have caused such a universal effect on forests, and why does organic material remain in rocks that are supposedly 251.4 million years old?2. Researchers from the U.K., U.S., and the Netherlands collaborated to identify the organic microfossils of tiny remains. The cell shapes are still discernable, including their chain-like fibrous forms. These organisms, called Reduviasporonites, have been the subject of a longstanding debate: were they fungi or filamentous algae? Chemical analysis has convinced some researchers that they were algae, ...

With any item that you write off as a medical expense, you will have to make sure that it is an item you have to use to better your health within the condition(s) that you have been diagnosed with.. A great way to ensure that the item can be written off is by having your care provider write a prescription for an item (i.e. compression stockings, wheelchair, etc) or if the item cant be written in a prescription form (i.e. specific books, certain over the counter medication, etc) have your care provider write it within their closing notes that they give you at the end of your office visit. Make sure to keep a copy of either the prescription or written note to put with your receipts, to make sure that you can verify you spent money on a particular item.. Keep track of every item cost that could potentially be written off as a medical expense. This way if you do have any questions for a tax advisory, you will already the information available.

The focus here is on the study disease dynamics under the assumption that a critical mass of susceptible individuals is required to guarantee the populations survival. Specifically, the emphasis is on the study of the role of an Allee effect on a Susceptible-Infectious (SI) model where the possibility that susceptible and infected individuals reproduce, with the S-class being the best fit. It is further assumed that infected individuals loose some of their ability to compete for resources, the cost imposed by the disease. These features are set in motion as simple model as possible. They turn out to lead to a rich set of dynamical outcomes. This toy model supports the possibility of multi-stability (hysteresis), saddle node and Hopf bifurcations, and catastrophic events (disease-induced extinction). The analyses provide a full picture of the system under disease-free dynamics including disease-induced extinction and proceed to identify required conditions for disease persistence. We conclude ...

This is all well and good, but whats the reasoning behind epigenetic changes?. If we think of evolution or natural selection as being long term genetic adaptation to the environment, epigenetics provides for short term rapid adjustments to the environment.. In essence, epigenetics is the tweaking of the system to fit the environment.. In a review on the subject, Godfrey et al. (2007) discussed the idea of how epigenetics fits into disease. They proposed that the body makes epigenetic changes in the womb or early childhood to adapt to the anticipated environment. In other words the body is tweaking itself to make sure its ready for what is out there. If a mother is malnourished or lacking certain nutrients, the body makes sure to tweak the gene expression so that if a new born baby is on its way, it is prepared. For instance, you might see adaptations leading to increased fat storage, or decreased BMR as a hypothetical example. On the other hand, if a person experienced a catastrophic event ...

I was always told, and Ive been using FSA accounts for the last 6 years, that expenses can only be reimbursed if they were incurred in the active plan year.

Rationale: Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) in pregnancy may trigger the life-threatening catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome (CAPS). Complement activation is implicated in the pathogenesis, and inhibition of complement factor C5 is suggested as an additional treatment option. Patient concerns, diagnosis and interventions: We present a pregnant patient treated with the C5-inhibitor eculizumab due to high risk of developing devastating APS-related complications. The complement inhibitory effects of the treatment were examined both in the patient and the premature infant. Outcomes: Complement activity in the mother recovered considerably faster than anticipated; however, no new thrombosis or CAPS developed during the last week of pregnancy or postpartum. Blood sampling from the umbilical vein and artery, and from the infant after delivery showed low complement activity; however, only 0.3% of the eculizumab concentration detected in the mother, consistent with low placental passage of eculizumab. ...
In 2014, Hong Kong residents made 71.6 million person-trips to the mainland of China (the Mainland) for business and personal purposes. Of these trips, business travel accounted for 37% while personal travel constituted 63%.. Analysed by destination of trips, the majority of trips made by Hong Kong residents for personal travel to the Mainland were destined for the Guangdong Province (94%). Analysed by mode of tour, most of the personal trips to the Mainland were in non-package tour mode (89%). Analysed by sex of the trip-makers, the proportion of personal trips made by males (55%) was higher.. In 2014, the total consumption expenditure of Hong Kong residents making personal travel to the Mainland amounted to $38.5 billion. The average consumption expenditure per person-trip was around $860. For overnight trips, the average consumption expenditure per person-trip was around $1,070, while that for same-day trips was around $340. ...
591 Comments to Read What exactly is bankruptcy? Will it wipe out all my debts?. Bankruptcy is a federal court process designed to help consumers and businesses eliminate their debts or repay them under the protection of the bankruptcy court. Bankruptcies can generally be described as "liquidation" or "reorganization." Under a liquidation bankruptcy (Chapter 7), you ask the bankruptcy court to wipe out (discharge) the debts you owe. Under a reorganization bankruptcy (typically Chapter 13, for consumers), you file a plan with the bankruptcy court proposing how you will repay your creditors. You must repay some debts in full; others may be repaid only partially or not at all, depending on what you can afford. For more information, see What Is Bankruptcy?. When you file either kind of bankruptcy, a court order called an "automatic stay" goes into effect. The automatic stay prohibits most creditors from taking any action to collect the debts you owe them unless the bankruptcy court lifts the stay ...
Bankruptcy is a legal process whereby individuals, who are in deep in debt, can gain a "fresh start" by either eliminating their debts or repaying them in a manageable way. Bankruptcy, thus, falls into two categories: liquidation and reorganization.. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common type of liquidation bankruptcy. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your assets can be liquidated to pay some or all your debts. This is common for folks who have a lot of unsecured debt. However, debts like child support and tax-related debt are usually not able to be considered for bankruptcy.. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are basically setting up a payment plan to pay back your creditors to some extent. The amount of the payment and the term of the payback period are determined by factors such as how much you earn, how much you owe, etc. Typically, you also stop accruing interest under this plan.. ...

The article will also appear in the journals June edition.. Ramsey and colleagues, including a chief judge for a U.S. Bankruptcy Court, undertook the research because the relationship between receiving a cancer diagnosis and bankruptcy is less well understood than the much-studied link between high medical expenses and likelihood of bankruptcy filing.. "This study found strong evidence of a link between cancer diagnosis and increased risk of bankruptcy," the authors wrote. "Although the risk of bankruptcy for cancer patients is relatively low in absolute terms, bankruptcy represents an extreme manifestation of what is probably a larger picture of economic hardship for cancer patients. Our study thus raises important questions about the factors underlying the ...
Detroit entered bankruptcy in July 2013 and exited bankruptcy just 18 months later, in December 2014. This made it not only the biggest municipal bankruptcy by debt (estimated at $18 to $20 billion) in U.S. history but also one of the fastest resolved. In 2013, years of declining economic output and falling personal incomes made it seem inevitable that Detroit was headed for bankruptcy; and investors, betting on an eventual recovery, started to acquire large areas of the city. For instance, Detroit native and founder of Quicken Loans Dan Gilbert had already embarked on a project to revitalize a two-square-mile area of downtown Detroit prior to the bankruptcy. By April 2013, Gilbert had invested $1 billion to acquire nearly three million square feet of real estate in the downtown area.5. The influx of new capital and an improved attitude about Detroits recovery following its bankruptcy started to pay early dividends for the city. In fact, while Detroits municipal government was still working ...
1. Effective Bankruptcy procedure should seek to minimize reorganization costs. High reorganization costs in the form of lengthy procedures or biases in the law undermine credit recovery and prevent viable firms to be reorganized thereby leading to inefficient liquidations.. 2. A financial crisis provides a good opportunity for serious bankruptcy reform. A high number of bankruptcies can put the issue high on the policy agenda, and generate the political will to pass the required legislation.. 3. An effective bankruptcy process has to ensure that viable firms are reorganized and unviable ones are liquidated. Inefficient firms need to be liquidated and the resources reallocated to more efficient ones. However, liquidations and fire-sale of assets are costly due to market illiquidity and transaction costs. Therefore, firms that are potentially viable are better off being reorganized.. 4. An effective bankruptcy process should support speedy recovery of reorganized firms. Once a firm emerges from ...
The Problems With The Bill: Theres no evidence of bankruptcy abuse. Bankruptcies have gone up, but so have credit card debt and credit card profits over the years. Independent studies, such as those of Harvard Law School professor Elizabeth Warren, show that the 90% or more of bankruptcies are still filed by people who get sick, get laid off, or get divorced, not by abusers. The industry can only document that 3% of filers may be abusers, yet the bill would harm all debtors. Warrens newest study, released in Februrary 2005, and done with colleagues at Harvard Medical School, shows that more than half of 2001 bankruptcy filers filed due to high medical debts. The bill has a millionaire loophole: The bill will hurt these hard-working Americans, but it includes a provision to protect millionaire deadbeats, who would be allowed to keep their mansions in bankruptcy. Current law in a few states, notably Texas and Florida, allows this. The proposed bill expands the millionaire mansion loophole ...

Health expenditure; public (% of total health expenditure) in Malaysia was last measured at 54.83 in 2013, according to the World Bank. Public health expenditure consists of recurrent and capital spending from government (central and local) budgets, external borrowings and grants (including donations from international agencies and nongovernmental organizations), and social (or compulsory) health insurance funds. Total health expenditure is the sum of public and private health expenditure. It covers the provision of health services (preventive and curative), family planning activities, nutrition activities, and emergency aid designated for health but does not include provision of water and sanitation.This page has the latest values, historical data, forecasts, charts, statistics, an economic calendar and news for Health expenditure - public (% of total health expenditure) in Malaysia.
Household consumption expenditure during the year has grown by 5.7%, reaching on average LVL 198 per capita monthly. In 2012, household expenditure on food (per capita monthly) on average comprised LVL 55 (LVL 54 in 2011) or 28% of the total consumption expenditure (29% in 2011).
Household final consumption expenditure increased by 0.4% ($40m) to $9,467m in the March quarter 2006 (in seasonally adjusted chain volume terms). In terms of percentage change, the components that recorded the largest increases were Operation of vehicles, up 2.1% ($11m); Clothing and footwear, up 1.7% ($6m); and Other goods and services, up 1.7% ($10m). The Transport services component experienced the largest percentage decrease, down 2.8% ($6m); followed by Cigarettes and tobacco, down 2.1% ($4m). Comparing March quarter 2006 with March quarter 2005, total household final consumption expenditure in South Australia increased by 1.8% ($171m). ...
Background: Neonatal illnesses usually require long hospital stays and specialized care and/or facilities, which usually results in huge medical bills. With more than 70% of people in Nigeria living on less than US$2 per day, these bills are not affordable to many families livelihoods. Aim: This study aims to determine the average cost of managing neonatal illnesses in Enugu in southeast Nigeria and the proportion of family income spent on these illnesses. It further seeks to ascertain the cost of various components in the management of neonatal diseases. Methods: This is a longitudinal and descriptive study involving 106 newborns admitted to the sick baby unit of the Enugu State University Teaching Hospital and the out-of-pocket medical expenditure in the management of their illnesses. Results: A hundred and six newborns participated in the study. All (100%) medical bills were out-of-pocket payments, and 103 (97.2%) of these were catastrophic health expenditure (more than 10% of total family ...

At the same time, the federal official closest to the website apologized for its dysfunction in new sign-ups and asserted things are getting better by the day.. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said its not the administration but insurers who are responsible for cancellation letters now reaching many of the estimated 14 million people who buy individual policies. And, officials said, people who get cancellation notices will be able to find better replacement plans, in some cases for less.. The Associated Press, citing the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, reported in May that many carriers would opt to cancel policies this fall and issue new ones. Administratively that was seen as easier than changing existing plans to comply with the new law, which mandates coverage of more services and provides better financial protection against catastrophic illnesses.. While the administration had ample warning of the cancellations, they could become another public relations debacle for ...

The recent increase of smart meters in the residential sector has lead to large available datasets. The electricity consumption of individual households can be accessed in close to real time, and allows both the demand and supply side to extract valuable information for efficient energy management. Predicting electricity consumption should help utilities improve planning generation and demand side management, however this is not a trivial task as consumption at the individual household level is highly irregular.. In this thesis the problem of improving load forecasting is ad-dressed using two machine learning methods, Support Vector Machines for regression (SVR) and Random Forest. For a customer base consisting of 187 households in Austin, Texas, pre-dictions are made on three spatial scales: (1) individual house-hold level (2) aggregate level (3) clusters of similar households according to their daily consumption profile. Results indicate that using Random Forest with K = 32 clusters yields ...
This paper studies the optimal determination of bankruptcy exemptions for risk averse borrowers who use unsecured contracts but have the possibility of defaulting. In a large class of economies, knowledge of four variables is sufficient to determine whether a bankruptcy exemption level is optimal or should be increased or decreased. These variables are i) the composition of households liabilities, ii) the sensitivity of the credit supply schedule to exemption changes, iii) the probability of ling for bankruptcy with non-exempt assets, and iv) the value given by households to a marginal dollar in different states, which can be mapped to changes in households consumption. I recover empirical estimates of the sufficient statistics using U.S. data over the period 2008-2016 and find that increasing exemption levels improves overall welfare, although there is substantial variation in estimated welfare gains across U.S. states and income quintiles..

Recently I have noticed that both the Internal Revenue Service website and the website for the Office of the United States Trustee have published a great deal of material about "bankruptcy fraud." What exactly is "bankruptcy fraud" and how can you avoid doing things that might put you at risk?. In the consumer bankruptcy area, the cases I have seen that fall into the description of bankruptcy fraud usually involve an intentional failure to disclose an asset or they involve an undisclosed transfer of an asset. I remember, for example, meeting with a potential client had recently been laid off from a six-figure job, and had found himself barely scraping by working part time in a retail store. He was prepared to surrender his expensive home and car, but he was not happy when I told him that the Rolex watch he had received as a gift from his ex-wife would have to be disclosed.. This gentleman did not understand that just because "no one would know" about his expensive watch, it still had to be ...

We used a Cox proportional hazard model with time-dependent exposure ...
LANSING, Mich., Feb 08, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) - Michigans top Mesothelioma legal expert on behalf of hundreds of Michigan Veterans with asbestos disease, Goldberg, Persky & White P.C., today issued the following statement and alert in response to passage of HB 5456, the so-called "Asbestos Bankruptcy Transparency Act," out of the Michigan House of Representatives Republican controlled "Competitiveness" committee on a straight party line vote. The bill, better entitled "delay til they die plan," would shield corporations from being held accountable for deadly asbestos-related diseases like Mesothelioma and delay justice for victims:. The asbestos industrys ongoing nationwide campaign to avoid accountability to those they harmed has reared its ugly head in Michigan. This bill would impose burdens on asbestos victims, including active and retired service members, the civil justice system, asbestos bankruptcy trusts, and taxpayers. It would force victims and their families to jump through ...
For almost one hundred years asbestos was one of the most popular materials used for the manufacture of insulation and hundreds of industrial and construction products that needed to be flexible, fire resistant and tough. By the 1970s however the asbestos companies finally acknowledged the obvious: asbestos fibers can be extremely toxic when inhaled or ingested. Since then the courts have held asbestos companies liable for health damages due to their products. Hundreds of thousands of claims have been filed against them for damages, almost exclusively health damages. Employees from the construction trades, military veterans and workers from dozens of industries filed suits against manufacturers of asbestos and companies who used the material in their products. Because asbestos use was so widespread and has ruined the health for so many people over 70 companies that were producers of asbestos or asbestos products filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the purpose of protecting themselves from ...
How the Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust System Works. In 1994 Congress amended the Federal Bankruptcy Code to provide special treatment for asbestos companies seeking to reorganize their business. Section 524(g) provides that if an asbestos company establishes a trust to pay asbestos victims, it can shift to the trust all of its liability for present and future asbestos claims and emerge from bankruptcy without any asbestos liability. 524(g) trusts are unique to asbestos companies and are completely different than other bankruptcy procedures; these trusts exist ONLY for the benefit of asbestos victims, they must exist to compensate victims now and for many years into the future, they allow a company to carry on its business free and clear of all asbestos liability, and payments from the trusts essentially represent settlements from asbestos companies. Trusts make payments according to a plan that was negotiated by the asbestos company and approved by the court when the trust was established. These ...

Antiphospholipid syndrome is an autoimmune disease, in which "antiphospholipid antibodies" (anticardiolipin antibodies and lupus anticoagulant) react against proteins that bind to anionic phospholipids on plasma membranes. Like many autoimmune diseases, it is more common in women than in men. The exact cause is not known, but activation of the system of coagulation is evident. Clinically important antiphospholipid antibodies (those that arise as a result of the autoimmune process) are associated with thrombosis and vascular disease. The syndrome can be divided into primary (no underlying disease state) and secondary (in association with an underlying disease state) forms. Anti-ApoH and a subset of anti-cardiolipin antibodies bind to ApoH, which in turn inhibits Protein C, a glycoprotein with regulatory function upon the common pathway of coagulation (by degradating activated factor V). Lupus anticoagulant (LAC) antibodies bind to prothrombin, thus increasing its cleavage to thrombin, its active ...
