"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)

To quantify extent of catastrophic household health expenditures, determine factors influencing it and estimate Fairness in Financial Contribution (FFC) index in Georgia to establish the baseline for expected reforms and contribute to the design and fine-tuning of the major reforms in health care financing initiated by the government mid-2007. The research is based on the nationally representative Health Care Utilization and Expenditure survey conducted during May-June 2007, prior to preparing for new phase of implementation for the health care financing reforms. Households catastrophic health expenditures were estimated according to the methodology proposed by WHO - Ke Xu [1]. A logistic regression (logit) model was used to predict probability of catastrophic health expenditure occurrence. In Georgia between 2000 and 2007 access to care for poor has improved slightly and the share of households facing catastrophic health expenditures have seemingly increased from 2.8% in 1999 to 11.7% in 2007. However
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.

Much of research on household catastrophic medical expenses in China has focused on less developed areas and little is known about this problem in more developed areas. This study aimed to analyse the incidence and determinants of catastrophic medical expenses in eastern China. Data were obtained from a health care utilization and expense survey of 11,577 households conducted in eastern China in 2008. The incidence of household catastrophic medical expenses was calculated using the method introduced by the World Health Organization. A multi-level logistic regression model was used to identify the determinants. The incidence of household catastrophic medical expenses in eastern China ranged from 9.24% to 24.79%. Incidence of household catastrophic medical expenses was lower if the head of household had a higher level of education, labor insurance coverage, while the incidence was higher if they lived in rural areas, had a family member with chronic diseases, had a child younger than 5 years old, had a

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 ...

Universal health coverage through the removal of financial and other barriers to access, particularly for people who are poor, is a global priority. This viewpoint describes the many pathways to catastrophic health expenditure (CHE) for patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) based on two case studies and the thematic analysis of field notes regarding 210 patients and their households from a study based in Kerala, India. There is evidence of the severe financial impact of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which is in contradiction to the widely acclaimed Kerala model: Good health at low cost. However, it is important to look beyond the out-of-pocket expenditure (OOPE) and CHE to the possible pathways and identify the triggers that make families vulnerable to CHE. The identified pathways include a primary and secondary loop. The primary pathway describes the direct path by which families experience CHE. These include: 1) factors related to the pre-event period that increase the likelihood of

One of the biggest obstacles to developing policies in cancer care in Southeast Asia is lack of reliable data on disease burden and economic consequences. In 2012, we instigated a study of new cancer patients in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region - the Asean CosTs In ONcology (ACTION) study - to assess the economic impact of cancer. The ACTION study is a prospective longitudinal study of 9,513 consecutively recruited adult patients with an initial diagnosis of cancer. Twelve months after diagnosis, we recorded death and household financial catastrophe (out-of-pocket medical costs exceeding 30 % of annual household income). We assessed the effect on these two outcomes of a range of socio-demographic, clinical, and economic predictors using a multinomial regression model. The mean age of participants was 52 years; 64 % were women. A year after diagnosis, 29 % had died, 48 % experienced financial catastrophe, and just 23 % were alive with no financial catastrophe.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! 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
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.

Studies predicting a substantial impact of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games on the Japanese economy have tended to overlook substitution effects in spending as well as the characteristics of those who are expected to increase their spending. This column uses a survey of 10,000 consumers across Japan to examine the net impact on consumer spending. While the majority expect no significant change in their consumption expenditures, a greater share of respondents expect a net increase than a net decrease. In general, people in their 20s and 30s, high-income earners, those with higher educational attainment, and households with at least one pre-school child expect a net increase in consumption expenditures.. ...

In its examination of the top 10 catastrophic illnesses that can prompt claims on stop-loss insurance policies, Sun Life Financial U.S. found self-insured employers paid more than half ($5.3 billion) of $9 billion in billed charges from 2012-15-receiving $2.3 billion in reimbursements through stop-loss protection.. Stop-loss insurance policies protect self-funded employers by limiting the risk associated with catastrophic claims.. More employers are self-funding their medical plans than ever before, and managing the rising cost of health care continues to be one of their central concerns, says Brad Nieland, vice president of Stop-Loss at Sun Life Financial U.S. By highlighting the conditions that create catastrophic claims and providing insights into trends influencing high costs, we can help employers anticipate what theyll see when self-funding and raise awareness about the importance of cost-containment resources and stop-loss insurance.. The fourth annual Top Ten Catastrophic Claims ...

Vice President Pence is on Capitol Hill talking to members of Congress, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Wednesday afternoon. 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 ...
This guideline reviews the features of the Antiphospholipid syndrome [APS]- definition, clinical association, pathophysiology and the laboratory detection of Antiphospholipid antibodies. It includes a section on who should be tested for aPL antibodies and how this should influence their management. It also includes sections on the management of APS and the Catastrophic Antiphospholipid syndrome [CAPS].. ...
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 ...
Either be prepared to justify why you should be allowed to file a second bankruptcy case within a year, or maybe instead wait out the year. The Automatic Stay. One of the most important and immediate benefits of filing bankruptcy is the automatic stay. Thats the federal law that stops creditors from chasing you and your assets immediately when your bankruptcy case is filed. It also usually keeps them from doing so as long as your case is open. You certainly dont want to miss out on this tremendously important benefit of bankruptcy, especially if you lose it unexpectedly just when you are counting on it.. Losing the Automatic Stay. In rare circumstances, you could file a bankruptcy case and not get this protection. Or get it but then lose it without warning 30 days later.. These could happen if you are now considering filing a bankruptcy case and had a prior bankruptcy, or more than one, filed in your name within the last 365 days, which was/were subsequently dismissed.. Careful, because this ...
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.. ...

Dr. Scott Ramsey. Photo by Susie Fitzhugh The study, led by corresponding author Scott Ramsey, M.D., Ph.D., an internist and health economist at Fred Hutch, was published online on May 15 as a Web First in the journal Health Affairs. 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 ...
While the number of personal bankruptcies in the U.S. has declined since 2010, the Ohio bankruptcy attorneys at Fesenmyer Cousino Weinzimmer believe that rising credit card debts are poised to reverse that trend. COLUMBUS, OH, June 13, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ - The number of personal bankruptcy filings dropped by around 50 percent from 2010 to 2016, which experts attribute to changes in our healthcare system. However, one Ohio law firm cautions people not to think that trend will continue in the years to come. The reason: mounting credit card debt. It would be tempting to see the decline in personal bankruptcy filings and think it will continue as unemployment remains low, said Danielle R. Weinzimmer. But its possible that weve seen a bottoming out of those numbers and that our collective credit card debt will start to be seen in a rise in bankruptcy filings.. The firm, which specializes in helping consumers with debt management and bankruptcy, said that clients come to them after debt has ...
We watched the arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., yesterday in the bankruptcy case of Hamilton v. Lanning.. We are not involved in this case. We attended as observers. The case deals with the formula for determining how much a debtor has to pay her general creditors in a chapter 13 bankruptcy payment plan. You can read the transcript or listen to the recording of the 60 minute hearing.. Jan Hamilton is the chapter 13 bankruptcy trustee in Topeka. He objected to confirmation of Stephanie Lannings chapter 13 plan because she is not proposing to pay the disposable income determined by the means test. Her previous six months’ income average was extraordinarily high due to two job lump sum severance payments she received in the fifth and sixth months prior to filing her bankruptcy. She then lost her job and got a new job for less wages. She cannot afford to pay the amount the means test dictates and proposed to pay less.. The bankruptcy court denied the ...
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 ...

Filing bankruptcy in December instead of January can make the difference between qualifying for Chapter 7 and being forced into Chapter 13.. If you have a serious debt problem, you may be doing your best during the holiday season to work around it. You feel you need to get through the next few weeks and then you can deal with it early next year. Its hard to find the time to get the holiday obligations taken care of much less find the time and attention to focus on what you should do about your debts.. But it may be worthwhile to find that time and attention.. Bankruptcy Timing Laws. Bankruptcy has many timing rules. Some of those rules can give you major advantages if you filed your bankruptcy case even just a few weeks sooner. Or you may be able to get advantages by filing later. But you wouldnt know if you didnt get legal advice about it. Getting that advice sooner rather than later can make a huge difference. Heres one reason why.. Taking Advantage of the Income Timing Laws in the Means ...
As a general rule, the right to exercise authority in a bankruptcy estate belongs to the creditors. It is the duty of an administrator of a bankruptcy estate to arrange, among other things, the management of the bankruptcy estate and to oversee the management and maintenance of the assets of the bankruptcy estate. The Bankruptcy Act regulates the authority of the creditors and the administrator.
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 ...

This same report went on to say Organizers behind Detroit Bankruptcy: One Year Later, held Wednesday evening at Wayne State University, ended the program in the middle of a segment with former bankruptcy judge Steven Rhodes, who presided over the citys historic case.

In developed countries we take appendectomies or cholecystectomies as minor bred and butter procedures. These are life saving procedures often performed in due time in developed countries. The case presented to us by Khan & Raza underlines the difficulty in timely and affordable access to procedures performed by specialists.

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 ...
Students also ask us about dental insurance. Dental insurance plans are different than medical health insurance plans. The primary purpose of a medical plan is to cover the risk of a catastrophic illness or injury. For this reason, medical plans tend to have high maximums. For example, the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan lifetime individual maximum for all benefits is unlimited. By contrast, dental plans are often designed to cover predictable, lower cost expenses. Dental plans may concentrate their best coverage for preventive services, which are predictable expenses. Dental plan maximums can be as low as $500 to $1,000 per year. Because of the high cost/benefit ratio, some students may be better off to budget for dental care rather than to purchase dental insurance.. ...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc), a life-threatening autoimmune disease characterized by vasculopathy. Numerous SSc patients demonstrate gastrointestinal (GI) involvement but the delicate GI bleeding risk remains sparse. We aimed to explore the role of SSc in determining the long-term risk of GI bleeding, including bleedings of upper (peptic and non-peptic ulcers) and lower GI tracts. Patients with SSc diagnosis were identified from the Catastrophic Illness Patient Database and the National Health Insurance Research Database from 1998 to 2007. Each SSc patient was matched with five SSc-free individuals by age, sex, and index date. All individuals (case = 3665, control = 18,325) were followed until the appearance of a GI bleeding event, death, or end of 2008. A subdistribution hazards model was assessed to evaluate the GI bleeding risk with adjustments for age, sex, and time-dependent covariates, comorbidity, and medications. The incidence rate ratios of GI bleeding were 2.38 (95% confidence interval [CI], 2.02
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 ...

Downloadable! Consumer bankruptcy is one of the largest social insurance programs in the United States, but little is known about its impact on debtors. We use 500,000 bankruptcy filings matched to administrative tax and foreclosure data to estimate the impact of Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection on subsequent outcomes. Exploiting the random assignment of bankruptcy filings to judges, we find that Chapter 13 protection increases annual earnings by $5,562, decreases five-year mortality by 1.2 percentage points, and decreases five-year foreclosure rates by 19.1 percentage points. These results come primarily from the deterioration of outcomes among dismissed filers, not gains by granted filers. (JEL D14, I12, J22, J31, K35)
One of the most frequently asked questions about getting mortgage financing is what to do after filing bankruptcy. You can purchase a home after filing bankruptcy, but you will need to pay higher interest rates. The faster you reestablish credit and the way you handle your credit after filing makes a huge difference in your ability to get a new home loan.. Millions of Americans are forced to declare bankruptcy every year, but even if youre one of those people, you can begin immediately to rebuild your damaged credit by taking a few relatively easy steps. Here are some ideas to help you get back on the right credit track:. First, pay all of your bills on time from now on. Make a pact with yourself never to be late with a payment again. It may require some stricter discipline than you have been used to, but it will go a long way toward reestablishing your credit worrthiness in the eyes of potential creditors like banks and credit card companies.. Second, although it will be tempting to do because ...

The about half statistic has been cited by politicians and others as an example of why the health care system in the U.S. needs to be changed to control costs and provide more people with coverage. At a Dec. 11 press conference to introduce his pick for secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, President-elect Barack Obama said that close to 50 percent of family bankruptcies are caused because of a health care crisis. And the likely-to-be head of HHS, Tom Daschle, used the same figure in his book on health care, writing: No wonder medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States, accounting for about half of them. Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden have proposed a bankruptcy law exemption, which would forgive debt, for those who can prove that medical expenses led them to file.. Its worth noting, though, that the figure from the Harvard study includes those who lost their jobs or significant income due to illness - even if they didnt cite ...
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.. Advance access at OUP. ...
The report seems to be a little flawed, though, according to ABC News. Also, suspect is the fact that data over 2 years old is being used to sustain an agenda in the forefront now for national health care paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Health care is not a right as some politicians and the mainstream news media would like you to believe. Fact-check.org has noted that even using Harvards numbers, its more like a bankruptcy every minute; indeed if you add up all bankrputcies in a year you barely get one every 30 seconds. Even using their own numbers, the accurate rate is really closer to 17%. But more to the point is that the Harvard data are clearly inflated, or at best, mischaracterized. A good part of the problem is definitional. The Harvard report claims to measure the extent to which medical costs are the cause of bankruptcies. In reality its survey asked if these costs were a reason - potentially one of many - for such bankruptcies. Beyond those who gave medical costs as a reason, the ...

Rodino (D) New Jersey and 43 others) The Administration opposes enactment of H.R. 2211. To the extent that the bill would permit family farmers who would not otherwise qualify to proceed under Chapter XIII of the Bankruptcy Code, the bill represents a substantial departure from the original purpose of Chapter XIII: to make an expedited bankruptcy procedure available to individual debtors burdened by modest amounts of short term debt by permitting the use of future income to discharge their debts in bankruptcy. In addition, by lengthening the amount of time over which a bankrupt estate may make payments and in impeding creditors ability to object to repayment plans, H.R. 2211 would have a substantial negative effect on the United States in its role as creditor.. ...

The sole item on next Tuesday mornings argument agenda, U.S. Bank National Association v. The Village at Lakeridge, is a bankruptcy case in name only. A quick glance at the briefs reveals that this really is an appellate procedure case - much more of a companion to Hamer v. Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago in the October argument session than to Merit Management Group, LP v. FTI Consulting, Inc. in the November argument session.. The case involves the Bankruptcy Codes definition of an insider creditor, a term that demarcates a group of creditors that the statute treats more suspiciously than it does traditional arms-length creditors. Traditionally, bankruptcy law assumes that a bankrupts dealings with a hostile bank lender are less worrisome than its dealings with its sole shareholder; dealings with insiders might be designed to disadvantage other less-favored creditors. The statutes strategy for defining that concept is to enumerate a set of relationships that always establish ...
