Should insurance pay for preventive services suggested by genetics? (1/314)

Physicians, plans and patients are discovering that the promise of genetic testing will be hard to fulfill. Even when a test can show predisposition toward a disease, performing it can't necessarily improve medical outcomes. Unfortunately, doing these tests can have some unintended negative effects.  (+info)

Changes in benefit payments and health insurance premiums among firms switching health insurance carriers. (2/314)

Employer-purchased group health insurance is a major source of funding in the US healthcare system, accounting for approximately one third of each healthcare dollar spent. Surprisingly, little is known about employers' behavior in purchasing health insurance or the circumstances leading employers to switch health insurance carriers. We descriptively analyzed data for a cohort of 95 insured groups between 1985 and 1991 to determine the frequency with which employers switch health insurance carriers and the growth pattern in premiums and benefit payments before the switch was made. Thirty-seven percent of groups switched carriers during the study period, with at least five groups switching each year from 1987 through 1991. The groups that switched insurance carriers experienced higher average annual rates of growth in benefit payments than those that did not switch (18% versus 11%). Groups that switched did not have significantly higher observed premium growth rates than those that did not switch, suggesting that employers decided to switch insurers before absorbing an increase in premiums. However, some firms that switched experienced below average increases in both benefit payments and premiums, indicating that premiums and anticipated premium increases are not solely responsible for the decision to switch health insurance carriers.  (+info)

Out-of-pocket health spending by poor and near-poor elderly Medicare beneficiaries. (3/314)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate out-of-pocket health care spending by lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and to examine spending variations between those who receive Medicaid assistance and those who do not receive such aid. DATA SOURCES AND COLLECTION: 1993 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS) Cost and Use files, supplemented with data from the Bureau of the Census (Current Population Survey); the Congressional Budget Office; the Health Care Financing Administration, Office of the Actuary (National Health Accounts); and the Social Security Administration. STUDY DESIGN: We analyzed out-of-pocket spending through a Medicare Benefits Simulation model, which projects out-of-pocket health care spending from the 1993 MCBS to 1997. Out-of-pocket health care spending is defined to include Medicare deductibles and coinsurance; premiums for private insurance, Medicare Part B, and Medicare HMOs; payments for non-covered goods and services; and balance billing by physicians. It excludes the costs of home care and nursing facility services, as well as indirect tax payments toward health care financing. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Almost 60 percent of beneficiaries with incomes below the poverty level did not receive Medicaid assistance in 1997. We estimate that these beneficiaries spent, on average, about half their income out-of-pocket for health care, whether they were enrolled in a Medicare HMO or in the traditional fee-for-service program. The 75 percent of beneficiaries with incomes between 100 and 125 percent of the poverty level who were not enrolled in Medicaid spent an estimated 30 percent of their income out-of-pocket on health care if they were in the traditional program and about 23 percent of their income if they were enrolled in a Medicare HMO. Average out-of-pocket spending among fee-for-service beneficiaries varied depending on whether beneficiaries had Medigap policies, employer-provided supplemental insurance, or no supplemental coverage. Those without supplemental coverage spent more on health care goods and services, but spent less than the other groups on prescription drugs and dental care-services not covered by Medicare. CONCLUSIONS: While Medicaid provides substantial protection for some lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, out-of-pocket health care spending continues to be a substantial burden for most of this population. Medicare reform discussions that focus on shifting more costs to beneficiaries should take into account the dramatic costs of health care already faced by this vulnerable population.  (+info)

Shaping the future of Medicare. (4/314)

This article suggests that further major changes in Medicare at this time are unwarranted. The enactment of the Balanced Budget Act (BBA) has eliminated the need for quick action to assure solvency of the Part A Trust Fund, which is projected to be in balance for at least ten years. It will take time to implement and assess the effects of the BBA. The uncertainties of future trends in the health sector and Medicare suggest a go-slow approach. Future reforms to finance health care as the baby boom generation retires should be guided by the goals of continuing to assure health and economic security to elderly and disabled beneficiaries, with particular attention to the financial burdens on lower-income beneficiaries and those with serious illnesses or chronic conditions. Employers are cutting back on retiree health coverage, and the appropriate contribution of employers will need to be addressed. The BBA included major provisions to expand Medicare managed care choices. Special attention will need to be given to how well these innovations work, their cost impact on Medicare, the extent to which beneficiaries are able to make informed choices, and whether risk selection among plans and between traditional Medicare and plans can be adequately addressed. Most of the savings of BBA came from tighter payment rates to managed care plans and fee-for-service providers; it is unclear whether these will lead to rates well below the private sector or whether further savings can be achieved by extending these changes beyond 2002.  (+info)

Who should determine the medical necessity of dental sedation and general anesthesia? A clinical commentary supported by Illinois patient and practitioner surveys. (5/314)

Many third-party payers try to deny benefits for dental sedation and general anesthesia. The term "not medically necessary" is often applied to these services by third-party payers. The label is poorly defined and varies from payer to payer. This paper uses original practitioner and patient opinion surveys to support the position that the definition of medical necessity is solely the joint responsibility of the patient and his/her physician. These surveys also support the argument that both patients and practitioners view dental sedation and general anesthesia as a medically necessary procedure if it allows a patient to complete a medically necessary surgical procedure that he/she might otherwise avoid.  (+info)

Should Medicare HMO benefits be standardized? (6/314)

Legislation enacted in 1990 standardized Medigap benefits but not the benefits of health maintenance organizations (HMOs) that serve Medicare beneficiaries. An examination of marketing materials in two large counties reveals the potential for enormous confusion among beneficiaries because of differences in wording to describe the same benefit, health plans' failure to list Medicare-covered services, and the differences in the benefits themselves. To date, the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) has not been able to overcome this confusion through the comparative material distributed on its Web site; indeed, significant errors were found, reflecting to some extent the underlying difficulties in characterizing benefits. Ways of ameliorating the situation are discussed.  (+info)

Response to health insurance by previously uninsured rural children. (7/314)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the healthcare utilization and costs of previously uninsured rural children. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Four years of claims data from a school-based health insurance program located in the Mississippi Delta. All children who were not Medicaid-eligible or were uninsured, were eligible for limited benefits under the program. The 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES) was used to compare utilization of services. STUDY DESIGN: The study represents a natural experiment in the provision of insurance benefits to a previously uninsured population. Premiums for the claims cost were set with little or no information on expected use of services. Claims from the insurer were used to form a panel data set. Mixed model logistic and linear regressions were estimated to determine the response to insurance for several categories of health services. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The use of services increased over time and approached the level of utilization in the NMES. Conditional medical expenditures also increased over time. Actuarial estimates of claims cost greatly exceeded actual claims cost. The provision of a limited medical, dental, and optical benefit package cost approximately $20-$24 per member per month in claims paid. CONCLUSIONS: An important uncertainty in providing health insurance to previously uninsured populations is whether a pent-up demand exists for health services. Evidence of a pent-up demand for medical services was not supported in this study of rural school-age children. States considering partnerships with private insurers to implement the State Children's Health Insurance Program could lower premium costs by assembling basic data on previously uninsured children.  (+info)

Diabetes and disenrollment in a health maintenance organization setting: a 4-year longitudinal study with a matched cohort. (8/314)

OBJECTIVE: The increasing enrollment of Medicare beneficiaries in health maintenance organizations (HMOs) in recent years has caused concern about whether HMOs and their providers have created an unfavorable environment for members who are chronically ill. This study was designed to examine whether there are any differences in disenrollment rates among enrollees with diabetes and enrollees without diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This was a 4-year longitudinal follow-up study with a matched cohort. Medicare beneficiaries (aged > or =65 years) with diabetes identified through pharmacy records in 1994 were matched with a comparison group according to age, sex, comorbidities, and type of provider groups in an HMO in California. RESULTS: The overall distribution of the characteristics of members in the diabetic and matched nondiabetic group is almost identical. The matched-pair chi2 tests indicated that there were no statistical differences in disenrollment rates between diabetic and nondiabetic members during all three follow-up periods (P = 0.16-0.85). CONCLUSIONS: We found that the HMO members with diabetes did not disenroll from the HMO at a higher rate than those without diabetes. The findings should alleviate some of the concern that HMOs and their contracted providers have created an unattractive environment for members who have chronic diseases such as diabetes.  (+info)

Reform Would Tackle Fiscal Challenges Head-On, Save As Much as $20 Billion over the Next 30 Years. BOSTON - Friday, January 11, 2013 - Governor Deval Patrick today announced plans to file legislation to reform health insurance benefits for retirees that would save as much as $20 billion for the Commonwealth and municipalities over the next 30 years. Todays announcement builds on the Governors record of reform and his Administrations commitment to fiscal responsibility for the long-run.. We have worked hard to make government work better, said Governor Patrick. With this reform, we create a benefit system that is both fair and sustainable.. The legislation would be based on recommendations included in todays report released by the Commission to Study Retiree Healthcare and Other Non-Pension Benefits (OPEB). The pension reform bill, signed November 2011, established the Commission to investigate and study retiree healthcare and other non-pension benefits. Membership includes Republican and ...

Anyway, yes the elected coverage IS backdated **BUT** you DO have to pay for the gap with your first premium. In the example above, if my last day was October 12, and my monthly premium was determined to be $500, and I waited 59 days and then elected to proceed, my first premium would be for my first month (January) AND the 2 months since my employer-paid coverage ended effective November 1 - so I would have to initially pay $1500, and then $500 each month afterward as long as I wish to keep it - even if I had no health-related incidents. Unfortunately insurance must be paid whether you ever use it or not, and COBRA is no exception - there is no free 2-month COBRA ride. If you end up in the hospital on November 20, you would not be covered unless you still proceeded to elect coverage before January and paid the gap in full. If, after being in the hospital and then deciding on day 59 NOT to elect COBRA (and back-pay the gap) then you are considered uninsured and you would be solely responsible ...

Downloadable! In this paper, I examine the impact of employer-provided health benefits on job turnover. Because many employer-provided plans extend coverage to a workers entire family, the value of an employers employment offer to a worker depends on whether the workers spouse provides the family with health benefits. If a workers spouse has an employer-provided health insurance for their family, the worker will value employment offers with and without health insurance benefits differently than a worker whose spouse does not have employer-provided health benefits. Importantly, this distortion arises from the reliance on employer-provided benefits and is independent of any pre-existing conditions clauses or issues concerning the portability of health plans. The estimates suggest that spouse-provided benefits substantially increase the likelihood of turnover.

by Karen Hamrick. During 1995-97, 3.4 million workers were displaced from their jobs, of whom 500,000 (15 percent) were nonmetro workers. This report examines the displaced workers experience in metro and nonmetro areas using survey and administrative data. Although nonmetro workers were less likely to be displaced than metro workers, they had a lower probability of finding employment after losing their jobs. Nonmetro workers were less likely to be covered by legislation providing advance notice of job loss and providing retirement and health insurance benefits after being laid off. A variety of programs are available to assist displaced workers in nonmetro areas..

A pre-existing condition is an illness or condition for which, in the opinion of a medical practitioner appointed by Westfund, signs and symptoms existed during 6 months before the date you joined Westfund or upgraded to a higher level of cover. A 12 month waiting period applies to all new members for hospital costs relating to the treatment of pre-existing conditions.. Should you wish to claim a benefit for hospital treatment before this period ends, you will need to ask your certified medical practitioner to complete the Medical Practitioner Certificate regarding Pre-Existing Ailments form. This certificate helps Westfund determine the level of health insurance benefits that will apply when hospitalisation is required for members who have been with Westfund for less than 12 months. Once this period is over you are entitled to the full benefits available under your policy.. ...

Downloadable! This paper constructs a dynamic model of health insurance to evaluate the short- and long run effects of policies that prevent firms from conditioning wages on health conditions of their workers, and that prevent health insurance companies from charging individuals with adverse health conditions higher insurance premia. Our study is motivated by recent US legislation that has tightened regulations on wage discrimination against workers with poorer health status (Americans with Disability Act of 2009, ADA, and ADA Amendments Act of 2008, ADAAA) and that will prohibit health insurance companies from charging different premiums for workers of different health status starting in 2014 (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, PPACA). In the model, a trade-off arises between the static gains from better insurance against poor health induced by these policies and their adverse dynamic incentive effects on household efforts to lead a healthy life. Using household panel data from the PSID we

That would be ending the Military Widows Tax, Jones said.. Jones explained that the Military Widows tax only affects about 2,000 people In Alabama, but it is a big deal for those military families. When a serviceman is killed, the Pentagon pays a stipend to the surviving spouse. Many soldiers also purchased insurance for the possibility that they would not survive their service.. Instead of paying both the survivors benefit and the insurance benefit, the VA previously subtracted the insurance benefit from the VA death stipend. The widows were only getting about 55 cents on the dollar of what they had expected. Every year, the Gold Star wives came to Washington and asked for that change in the law, and every year, Senators would pat them on the back and then choose finances over repealing the tax and doing what was right, Jones said.. For 27 years, the Gold Star widows had made this a priority and nothing got done. Jones did not know about this until he got to the Senate, but when he found ...

Similar to CHIP, HHS proposes that a health plan have some flexibility to adjust services covered and quantitative limits, as long as they continue to offer coverage for all 10 categories. HHS is considering whether health plan substitutions for the benchmark plan only be allowed within each of the 10 categories, or if health plans might be permitted to substitute benefits across the categories, while maintaining actuarial equivalence, i.e., that the plan would be of the same value in terms of protection to the consumer. However, such plan flexibility may make it more challenging for people to make informed choices to the extent that plans offer considerably different benefits within, or across, the 10 categories ...

The study found that private insurance spends about 5 percent on behavioral health treatment. Spending on behavioral health treatment (mental health and substance abuse) comprised 4.8 percent of private health insurance expenditures in 2005 and grew by 7 percent from 2004 to 2005. This estimate provides an important baseline for evaluating the impact of the Mental Health Parity and Addictions Equity Act and Affordable Care Act. In contrast, Medicaid behavioral health was responsible for 11.5 percent of total spending by Medicaid. Thus the study indicates that the level of public spending on behavioral health issues may be related to lack of private insurance benefit for many with mental health needs and that these problems may be addressed with parity ...

The essential health benefits are to be defined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services and must be defined to include the following categories of services: Ambulatory patient services; emergency services; hospitalization; maternity and newborn care; mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment; prescription drugs; rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices; laboratory services; preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management; and pediatric services, including oral and vision care ...
It is the patient/caregivers responsibility to understand their insurance benefit plan. It is the patient/caregivers responsibility to know if a written referral or authorization is needed to see specialists, if preauthorization is required prior to a procedure and what services are covered.. If a patient/caregiver has no insurance, they will be seen on a cash basis.. When you arrive at Mayfair Medical Group, you will sign an agreement to pay for any services rendered that are not covered by your insurance. Because we deal with dozens of different insurances, we do not have the ability to track each individual plan. It is very important to check with your insurance before making a well child appointment. Not all plans cover well child check-ups, annual/sports physicals, immunizations, routine labs, or hearing and vision screenings. If any benefit is not covered, it will be the responsibility of the patient/caregiver to make payment at the time of service.. Not all medically necessary services ...

  • But did you know that life insurance can also provide benefits while you're still living? (

  • Life insurance allows you, the policy owner, to build cash value through your life insurance policy that accumulates over your lifetime. (
  • This is considered a living benefit of life insurance because, in contrast to a death benefit that pays out when you pass away, you can use the money while you're still alive. (

  • If I have a do not resuscitate form filled out and signed, does that in any way, or can that in any way, disqualify my life insurance policy that I've had for a long time for my grandchildren and my son to receive payments as beneficiaries? (
  • Note that a do-not-resuscitate order is the only backward-looking directive: it says, "after I die do not bring me back," so it has no bearing on the cause of death for life insurance purposes. (
  • The question, then, is: if you choose any of your legally available options, is your life insurance policy going to be at risk because of its suicide provision? (
  • Suicide provisions in life insurance policies are designed to stop people from buying a bunch of life insurance right before they commit suicide. (
  • This discourages suicide as a "bail my family out of financial trouble" solution, and keeps the life insurance companies' statistical projections on track. (
  • Even so, suicide clauses generally say the policy fails only if the suicide happens within two years of the purchase of the life insurance. (
  • Suicide does not void a life insurance policy that has been in effect for a longer period of time. (
  • You will not lose your life insurance because you have signed or eventually use an advance directive. (
  • For instance, Washington law states that death with dignity shall have no effect on a life insurance policy. (

  • Whether they have started a family, bought a house , reached a milestone birthday or started to think more seriously about life beyond their thirties, many more young people are seeing the benefits of life insurance. (
  • Peace of mind is one major benefit of life insurance. (
  • While there are any number of personal reasons why someone might turn their mind to buying life insurance, they can broadly be summed-up under 'peace of mind', which is a huge advantage to have for some. (
  • Term life insurance is an insurance policy of a specified length that pays out to your beneficiaries if you die within its lifespan. (
