User fees and drug pricing policies: a study at Harare Central Hospital, Zimbabwe. (1/237)

In 1991, Zimbabwe introduced cost recovery measures as part of its programme of economic reforms, following a course taken by many developing countries. The system of user fees in public health care, aimed to 'protect and support the vulnerable groups' by exemption or incremental fees based on 4 income brackets. Drugs were charged at a percentage of the recommended retail price in the private sector. This study of 488 outpatients at a referral hospital in Harare examined how the new fee system functioned 6 months after its introduction. Patients were interviewed and their prescription records examined. Mean charges were determined for each fee category and revenue from drug charges was analyzed in relation to purchase cost to determine the gross profit. 31% of patients were exempted from all fees upon proof of monthly earnings of less than Z$150 (Z$5 = US$1). The remainder were classified into three fee-paying categories. The mean purchase cost for drug items was Z$3.89 per outpatient prescription. Outpatients paid a mean drug charge of Z$9.75 after exemption or discount. This was 2.5 times the cost price. The number of drug items obtained differed according to fee status: the fee-exempt category received a mean of 2.9 drug items compared with 1.9 drug items in the fee-paying categories. This difference originated at the point of prescribing. A number of practical problems in fee collection were noted. The drug pricing system generated high profit even after re-distribution to low-income users. This was attributed to economical and rationalized public sector drug procurement. Observation indicated that a proportion of the vulnerable were not effectively protected due to stringent requirements for proof of income. Appraisal of the fee policy indicated the need for more effective cross-subsidy and better administrative procedures; fee revenue should be directed towards improvement in quality of service.  (+info)

User fees and patient behaviour: evidence from Niamey National Hospital. (2/237)

Evidence is presented on the effects of price changes on the delay before seeking care and on referral status in a sample of hospital patients in Niger. Price changes are measured as differences across patients at one hospital in whether or not they pay for care, rather than as differences in prices across several hospitals. User fees are charged, but the fee system allows exemptions for some payor categories such as government employees, students, and indigent patients. Evidence is also presented on the effect of income on the delay before seeking care and referral status. The analysis demonstrates a technical point on whether household consumption or current income is a more appropriate measure of income. The analysis shows that user fees affect patient behaviour, but the effects are not the same for outpatients and inpatients. Outpatients who pay for care wait longer before seeking care, but inpatients do not. Inpatients who pay for care are more likely to be referred, but outpatients are not. Patients with more income wait less time to seek care and are less likely to be referred than other patients. Further, household consumption explains patient behaviour better than current income.  (+info)

Explaining price variations for the inpatient treatment of congestive heart failure. (3/237)

OBJECTIVE: To identify key factors affecting hospital charge variations in the treatment of congestive heart failure. STUDY DESIGN: The determinants of total charges and average charges (the latter being a measure of treatment intensity) were evaluated using hospital discharge abstract data from 1994. Multivariate regression methods were used to help isolate the impact of key predictors of charges. In addition to relating a variety of factors (e.g., drug treatment regimens, patient comorbidities, demographic characteristics, insurance status, treatment course) to hospital charges, the analysis controlled for hospital-specific fixed effects. The study includes the effects of pharmacologic agents--information typically unavailable on inpatient claims-based data. RESULTS: Drug treatment regimens, particularly treatment with inotropic agents, were associated with substantially higher total charges. Comorbidities also increased the cost of treating congestive heart failure, particularly when septicemia, pneumonia, or acute myocardial infarction were involved. In contrast, gender, race, and insurance status bore little relationship to total charges or average charges. CONCLUSION: The fixed-effects estimates revealed that substantial interhospital variations in charges persisted, suggesting that there may be significant opportunities to control the inpatient costs of treating congestive heart failure.  (+info)

Market power and hospital pricing: are nonprofits different? (4/237)

Dramatic changes in hospitals' operating environments are leading to major restructuring of hospital organizations. Hospital mergers and acquisitions are increasing each year, and conversions by hospitals to different forms of ownership also are continuing apace. Such changes require policymakers and regulators to develop and implement policies to ensure that consumers' interests are protected. An important consideration in this process is the impact on the price of hospital care following such transactions. This paper reviews empirical evidence that mergers that reduce competition will lead to price increases at both merging hospitals and their competitors, regardless of ownership status. We show that nonprofit and government hospitals have steadily become more willing to raise prices to exploit market power and discuss the implications for antitrust regulators and agencies that must approve nonprofit conversions.  (+info)

Comparison between the transabdominal and retroperitoneal approaches for aortic reconstruction in patients at high risk. (5/237)

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the transabdominal approach with the retroperitoneal approach for elective aortic reconstruction in the patient who is at high risk. METHODS: From January 1992 through January 1997, 148 patients underwent aortic operations: 92 of the patients were classified as American Society of Anesthesia (ASA) class IV. Forty-four operations on the patients of ASA class IV were performed with the transabdominal approach (25 for abdominal aortic aneurysms and 19 for aortoiliac occlusive disease), and 48 operations were performed with the retroperitoneal approach (27 for abdominal aortic aneurysms and 21 for aortoiliac occlusive disease). There were no significant differences between the groups for comorbid risk factors or perioperative care. RESULTS: Among the patients of ASA class IV, eight (8.7%) died after operation (retroperitoneal, 3 [6.26%]; transabdominal, 5 [11.3%]; P =.5). There was no difference between groups in the number of pulmonary complications (retroperitoneal, 23 [47.9%]; transabdominal, 19 [43.2%]; P =.7) or in the development of incisional hernias (retroperitoneal, 6 [12.5%]; transabdominal, 5 [11.3%]; P =.5). The retroperitoneal approach was associated with a significant reduction in cardiac complications (retroperitoneal, 6 [12.5%]; transabdominal, 10 [22.7%]; P =.004) and in gastrointestinal complications (retroperitoneal, 5 [8.3%]; transabdominal, 15 [34.1%]). Operative time was significantly longer in the retroperitoneal group (retroperitoneal, 3.35 hours; transabdominal, 2.98 hours; P =.006), as was blood loss (retroperitoneal, 803 mL; transabdominal, 647 mL; P =.012). The patients in the retroperitoneal group required less intravenous narcotics (retroperitoneal, 36.6 +/- 21 mg; transabdominal, 49.5 +/- 28.5 mg; P =.004) and less epidural analgesics (retroperitoneal, 39.5 +/- 6.4 mg; transabdominal, 56.6 +/- 9.5 mg; P =.004). Hospital length of stay (retroperitoneal, 7.2 +/- 1.6 days; transabdominal, 12.8 +/- 2.3 days; P =.024) and hospital charges (retroperitoneal, $35,587 +/- $980; transabdominal, $54,832 +/- $1105; P =.04) were significantly lower in the retroperitoneal group. The survival rates at the 40-month follow-up period were similar between the groups (retroperitoneal, 81.3%; transabdominal, 78.7%; P =.53). CONCLUSION: In this subset of patients who were at high risk for aortic reconstruction, the postoperative complications were common. However, the number of complications was significantly lower in the retroperitoneal group. Aortic reconstruction in patients of ASA class IV appears to be more safely and economically performed with the retroperitoneal approach.  (+info)

Unofficial fees in Bangladesh: price, equity and institutional issues. (6/237)

The widespread collection of unofficial fees at health facilities is a common form of rent-seeking behaviour in Bangladesh. Typically, unofficial fees come in the form of cash payments for the performance of required services, for direct purchase of drugs and medical-surgical requisites, and for service access. Using observational and interview methods, this study explores linkages between official and unofficial fees at three Bangladesh health facility levels; primary care Thana Health Complexes, secondary or district hospitals, and medical college hospitals. The study estimates payment levels for different income classes and different payor types at these facilities, thereby highlighting potential equity, price and institutional questions associated with unofficial fees. Not only does the practice have clear income and equity effects, there also appear to be direct effects upon patient satisfaction, perception of quality, and the ability to pay for health services. The article concludes with a discussion of 'rent capture' processes at Bangladesh facilities and the effect of unofficial fees in six areas of health sector reform: displaced official policies, reduced merit goods production, upward income redistribution, distorted human resource development, growth of facility inefficiency, and obstruction of market reforms.  (+info)

Long-term benefit of primary angioplasty as compared with thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction. (7/237)

BACKGROUND: As compared with thrombolytic therapy, primary coronary angioplasty results in a higher rate of patency of the infarct-related coronary artery, lower rates of stroke and reinfarction, and higher in-hospital or 30-day survival rates. However, the comparative long-term efficacy of these two approaches has not been carefully studied. METHODS: We randomly assigned a total of 395 patients with acute myocardial infarction to treatment with angioplasty or intravenous streptokinase. Clinical information was collected for a mean (+/-SD) of 5+/-2 years, and medical charges associated with the two treatments were compared. RESULTS: A total of 194 patients were assigned to undergo primary angioplasty, and 201 to receive streptokinase. Mortality was 13 percent in the angioplasty group, as compared with 24 percent in the streptokinase group (relative risk, 0.54; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.36 to 0.87). Nonfatal reinfarction occurred in 6 percent and 22 percent of the two groups, respectively (relative risk, 0.27; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.15 to 0.52). The combined incidence of death and nonfatal reinfarction was also lower among patients assigned to angioplasty than among those assigned to streptokinase, with a relative risk of 0.13 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.05 to 0.37) for early events (within the first 30 days) and a relative risk of 0.62 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.43 to 0.91) for late events (after 30 days). The rates of readmission for heart failure and ischemia were also lower among patients in the angioplasty group than among patients in the streptokinase group. Total medical charges per patient were lower in the angioplasty group (16,090 dollars) than in the streptokinase group (16,813 dollars, P=0.05). CONCLUSIONS: During five years of follow-up, primary coronary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction was associated with lower rates of early and late death and nonfatal reinfarction, fewer hospital readmissions for ischemia or heart failure, and lower total medical charges than treatment with intravenous streptokinase.  (+info)

Outpatient-based bone marrow transplantation for hematologic malignancies: cost saving or cost shifting? (8/237)

PURPOSE: To determine whether a shift in care from an inpatient-based to an outpatient-based bone marrow transplantation (BMT) program decreased charges to payers without increasing clinical complications or out-of-pocket costs to patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This nonrandomized prospective cohort study compared clinical and economic outcomes for 132 consecutive BMT patients with hematologic malignancies who received either inpatient- or outpatient-based BMT care. RESULTS: Seventeen of 132 BMT patients underwent outpatient-based BMT. Compared with the inpatient-based group, the outpatient-based group had a markedly lower mean number of inpatient hospital days (22 v 47; P <.001) and decreased mean inpatient facility charges ($61,059 less per patient; P <.0001) but had higher mean outpatient facility charges ($49,732 higher; P <. 0001). Total professional fees were similar for the groups. The mean total charge to payers was only 7% less ($12,652; P =.21) for outpatient-based BMT than for inpatient-based BMT, but total charge was 34% less for outpatient compared with inpatient BMT ($54,240; P = 0.056) in a subset of patients who had a standard rather than high risk of treatment failure. There was no significant difference between groups in out-of-pocket costs for transportation, lodging, meals, home nursing, household assistance, child care, medication expenses, or unreimbursed medical bills. There also was no significant difference between groups in reported income lost, involuntary unemployment, or months of disability. The two groups had similar rates of major complications, including death, significant acute graft-versus-host disease, and veno-occlusive disease of the liver. CONCLUSION: Increased use of outpatient-based BMT should produce substantial cost savings for payers without adverse effects on patients for those patients who do not have a high risk of treatment failure.  (+info)

To our knowledge, this is the first national study and among few studies in the literature to analyze the association between socio-demographic factors, injury characteristics, health outcome and hospital charges and LOS among patients with RTI. The findings showed that hospital charges and LOS associated with RTIs varied by age, gender, socio-economic status, injury characteristics, health outcome of patients, and type of road users.. Although the average hospital charges in this study were lower compared to reports from HICs [6-9, 32], the increasing number of RTIs and deaths in Iran, impose a huge economic burden on the Iranian society. During the years 2000 to 2004, nearly one million people were injured and more than 100,000 died due to traffic crashes in Iran [3].. Local studies conducted in hospitals in Tehran city have reported LOS ranging from 5 to 7.8 for trauma patients in general [14, 33-35], which is in line with the average LOS for RTI reported in this study. It is difficult to ...
Total charges averaged $70,700 for a mean 8.5-day stay when children and adolescents were hospitalized with a diagnosis of musculoskeletal infection along with other medical conditions. With a primary diagnosis of infection, the stay was shorter (6.3 days), and mean charges were $46,000. Total hospital charges for all primary musculoskeletal infection discharges in 2012 were $419 million. (Reference Table 7.2 PDF CSV). ...
Between 1993 and 2014, 52,011 patients underwent primary AA fusion. Over this period, there was a 111% increase in annual number of primary surgeries performed. An estimated 1372 patients underwent revision AA fusion between 2006 and 2014, and over this time period there was a 6% decrease in the number of revisions performed annually. The 65-84 year-old age group increased as a proportion of primary AA fusions in the US from 35.9% of all AA fusions in 1997 to 44.2% in 2015, an increase of 23%. The mean hospital cost for primary AA surgery increased 32% between 2006 and 2015, while the mean cost for revision AA surgery increased by 35% between 2006 and 2014. Between 2006 and 2014, the mean hospital charge for primary AA surgery increased by 67%; the mean charge for revision surgery over that same period increased by 57%. Between 2006 and 2014, the mean age for primary AA fusions was 60 years, while the mean age for revision AA fusions was 52 years. The mean LOS for both procedures decreased over ...
Total charges averaged $112,300 for a mean 11.5-day stay when children and adolescents were hospitalized with any diagnosis of a medical problem with musculoskeletal implications along with other medical conditions. With a primary medical problem diagnosis, the stay was shorter (3.5 days), and mean charges about a fourth that of medical problems as a contributing condition
For uncomplicated treatments, the average Medicare payment in 2008 was $12,599 (MS-DRG 27), which is substantially lower than the median 2008 hospital costs of $23,574 for clipping and $25,734 for coiling. The median hospital costs were $36,188 for clipping and $40,502 for coiling treatments complicated by major morbidity and $68,165 for clipping and $56,020 for coiling treatments complicated by mortality (Table). These costs are also substantially higher than the average Medicare payments for patients with major complications and comorbidities of $22,946 for 2008 (MS-DRG 26). Twenty-four percent of patients undergoing clipping or coiling for unruptured aneurysms in the United States were ≥65 years of age,3 so Medicare patients represent a significant minority of these cases.. Hoh et al4 reported the cost of cerebral aneurysm treatment in a previous study using NIS data, showing that clipping was associated with significantly longer stay and significantly higher total hospital charges than ...
A study looking to determine if obesity is associated with an increased burden to the healthcare system in patients with orthopaedic polytrauma, examined 301 patients with polytrauma who had orthopaedic injuries and intensive care admission from 2006 to 2011. Routine thoracoabdominal computed tomographic scans measuring truncal adiposity volume were also used to create a truncal three-dimensional reconstruction BMI, with a BMI of less than 30 denoting patients without obesity, and over 30 denoting patients with obesity. Of the 301 patients, 21.6% were classified as having obesity. The researchers found a higher BMI was associated with longer hospital length of stay, more days spent in the intensive care unit, more frequent discharge to a long-term care facility, higher rates of orthopaedic intervention, and increased total hospital charges. The researchers also concluded that computed tomographic scans, routinely obtained at the time of admission, can be used to calculate truncal adiposity and ...
A cohort of 372,753 patients underwent total-SA (TSA) (59.7% females). Females were significantly older, more often had Medicare insurance, had a higher proportion of fracture diagnosis, more often underwent hemiarthroplasty (HA), and had significantly lower odds of any adverse event, MI, and sepsis, but higher odds of peripheral nerve injury. Females had significantly greater hospital lengths of stay for all combined procedures, and isolated TSA, reverse-TSA, and HA. Hospital costs were significantly lower in females for all combined procedures and HA.. CONCLUSIONS ...

Ted Cruz has argued that it is much cheaper to provide emergency care than it is to expand Medicaid, and Rick Perry has claimed that Texans prefer the ER system. The myth is based on a 1986 federal law called the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), which states that hospitals with emergency rooms have to accept and stabilize patients who are in labor or who have an acute medical condition that threatens life or limb. That word stabilize is key: Hospital ERs dont have to treat you. They just have to patch you up to the point where youre not actively dying. Also, hospitals charge for ER care, and usually send patients to collections when they cannot pay. ...

The parallel is just superficial but not mathematically equivalent. In the Martingale example, you have an equally likely chance of winning with each hand you play, but the stakes continue to increase. When building a portfolio, adding another loan makes the entire portfolio MORE likely to achieve the average charge off rate (i.e. profitable) because the variance of the portfolio is reduced as its size increases. Plus, your additional capital is the same as it ever was, $25. I made a nice post on that outlined the math behind the 100, 200, 400 thing. ...

After we launched a tool with which consumers collect hospital bills in September 2016, more than 715,000 hospital prices are made available online. In a database of the Dutch Consumers Association, developed in cooperation with Open State Foundation, one can now find 715,774 prices of medical treatments.. The database includes prices of medical treatments of both insurance companies as well as a number of hospitals. There are 634,814 prices of medical treatments contracted by insurance companies as CZ, VGZ and Menzis. In addition 80,960 prices of hospitals can be found.. An analysis of the data by the Consumers Association showed vast difference between prices of the same medical treatment. These prices differ between contracted hospital prices of insurance companies but also between the hospitals themselves. Hospital prices would differ sometimes hundreds or thousands euros.. At the end of 2016, a week before our case at the Council of State to disclose prices of medical treatments, Dutch ...
This study demonstrates several important findings pertinent to stroke. In South Carolina, the annual hospital admission rate for stroke in AAs was higher than the rate among CAs in all age groups ,85 years old, whereas among patients ≥85 years old, the racial disparity was reversed, with CAs having higher admission rates than AAs. The higher age-adjusted admission rates among AAs compared with CAs had a significant financial impact on the state, resulting in $362 million in excess hospital charges during the 5-year time period, with a substantial majority (70.8%, or $256.5 million) arising from patients ,65 years old. Among patients admitted to South Carolina hospitals for stroke, many significant demographic differences exist between AA and CA patients.

2) Charity care or uncompensated trauma care means that portion of hospital charges reported to the agency for which there is no compensation, other than restricted or unrestricted revenues provided to a hospital by local governments or tax districts regardless of method of payment, for care provided to a patient whose family income for the 12 months preceding the determination is less than or equal to 200 percent of the federal poverty level, unless the amount of hospital charges due from the patient exceeds 25 percent of the annual family income.

Background: While single-institution studies reported the indications and outcomes of tracheostomy in children with congenital heart disease (CHD), no national analyses have been performed. We sought to examine the indications, performance, outcomes, and resource utilization of tracheostomy in children with CHD using a nationally representative database.Methods: We identified all children undergoing tracheostomy in the Kids Inpatient Database 1997 through 2009, and we compared children with CHD to children without CHD. Within the CHD group, we compared children whose tracheostomy occurred in the same hospital admissions as a cardiac operation to those whose tracheostomy occurred without a cardiac operation in the same admission.Results: Tracheostomy was performed in n=2,495 children with CHD, which represents 9.6% of all tracheostomies performed in children (n=25,928), and 3.5% of all admissions for children with CHD (n=355,460). Over the study period, there was an increasing trend in the proportion of
TY - JOUR. T1 - An evaluation of care coordination in controlling inpatient hospital utilization of people with developmental disabilities. AU - Criscione, T.. AU - Walsh, K. K.. AU - Kastner, T. A.. PY - 1995/12/1. Y1 - 1995/12/1. N2 - All admissions of people with developmental disabilities to a community hospital over 3 years were examined to evaluate the impact of a coordinated care model on length of stay and hospital charges. Admissions were divided into two groups, those receiving either coordinated care (program group) or routine care by community physicians (usual care group). The program group had shorter average lengths of stay and lower hospital charges than did the usual care group, especially when charges were adjusted for case mix. Similarity of severity across the groups was measured by number of discharge diagnoses and Medicaid case weights. Over the 3 years, for the 115 admissions in the program group, these differences amounted to more than $200,000 in potentially unnecessary ...

Steven Brills exposé on hospital pricing in Time magazine predictably provoked from the American Hospital Association a statement seeking to correct the impression left by Mr. Brill that the United States hospital industry is hugely profitable. In this regard, the association can cite not only its own regularly published data, but also data from the independent and authoritative Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, or Medpac, established by Congress to advise it on paying the providers of health care for treating Medicare patients. The hospital association also correctly points out that under the pervasive price discrimination that is the hallmark of American health care, the profit margin a hospital earns is the product of a complicated financial juggling act among its mix of payers.

Prior to my spinal fusion surgery I contacted my surgeons office to find out if everything was covered by my insurance. I was told that it was and that it looked like I wouldnt owe anything. Some out-of-network charges appeared anyway. Some of us know how high those can be. Is there anything further I could have done to prevent this? I did not record that conversation with the office. I had not demanded that everyone be in network. In particular, has anyone ever used a lawyer to deal

The economic analysis evaluated in this trial included medical costs and resource utilization. In principle, the economic perspective of the study is societal. However, as costs are not accounted for by society, cost models were based on payer data. Hospital charges, collected from UB92 forms, were gathered on 820 patients at 30 U.S. centers. Because of variation in healthcare delivery systems and economics in different countries, the analysis was limited to the U.S.. Hospital costs were estimated for each patient by multiplying total charges by the hospitals global cost-to-charge ratio from the annual Medicare Cost Report for each hospital (10,11). This methodology, comparing departmental with whole hospital cost-to-charge ratios, was validated in 1,676 patients undergoing angioplasty at Emory University in 1995. If CDis cost from departmental cost-to-charge ratios and CHis cost the whole hospital cost-to-charge ratio, then CH= 0.83 × CD+ 170. The R2was 0.97, and the intercept of 170 was just ...

As the No. 1 cause of hospital admissions, childbirth is a huge part of the nations $2.4-trillion annual healthcare expenditure, accounting in hospital charges alone for more than $79 billion.. Because spending on the average uncomplicated cesarean for all patients runs about $4,500, nearly twice as much as a comparable vaginal birth, cesareans account for a disproportionate amount (45%) of delivery costs. (Among privately insured patients, uncomplicated cesareans run about $13,000.) […]. The problem, experts say, is that the cesarean - delivery via uterine incision - exposes a woman to the risk of infection, blood clots and other serious problems. Cesareans also have been shown to increase premature births and the need for intensive care for newborns. Even without such complications, cesareans result in longer hospital stays.. Inducing childbirth - bringing on or hastening labor with the drug oxytocin - also is on the rise and is another source of growing concern. Experts say miscalculations ...
The hospital charges $3,850 for a vaginal delivery, with or without an epidural, and $5,600 for a planned C-section - prices that include standard hospital, doctors and testing fees. To set the price, the hospital - which breaks even on maternity care and whose doctors are on salaries - calculated the average payment it gets from all insurers. While Dr. Coonrod said the hospital might lose a bit of money, he saw other benefits in a market where everyone will have insurance in just a few years: mothers tend to feel allegiance to the place they give birth to their babies and might seek other care at Maricopa in the future. Laura Segall for The New York ...
