Legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon--the first year's experience. (1/2176)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: On October 27, 1997, Oregon legalized physician-assisted suicide. We collected data on all terminally ill Oregon residents who received prescriptions for lethal medications under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act and who died in 1998. The data were obtained from physicians' reports, death certificates, and interviews with physicians. We compared persons who took lethal medications prescribed under the act with those who died from similar illnesses but did not receive prescriptions for lethal medications. RESULTS: Information on 23 persons who received prescriptions for lethal medications was reported to the Oregon Health Division; 15 died after taking the lethal medications, 6 died from underlying illnesses, and 2 were alive as of January 1, 1999. The median age of the 15 patients who died after taking lethal medications was 69 years; 8 were male, and all 15 were white. Thirteen of the 15 patients had cancer. The case patients and controls were similar with regard to sex, race, urban or rural residence, level of education, health insurance coverage, and hospice enrollment. No case patients or controls expressed concern about the financial impact of their illness. One case patient and 15 controls expressed concern about inadequate control of pain (P=0.10). The case patients were more likely than the controls to have never married (P=0.04) and were more likely to be concerned about loss of autonomy due to illness (P=0.01) and loss of control of bodily functions (P=0.02). At death, 21 percent of the case patients and 84 percent of the controls were completely disabled (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: During the first year of legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, the decision to request and use a prescription for lethal medication was associated with concern about loss of autonomy or control of bodily functions, not with fear of intractable pain or concern about financial loss. In addition, we found that the choice of physician-assisted suicide was not associated with level of education or health insurance coverage.  (+info)

Use of out-of-plan services by Medicare members of HIP. (2/2176)

Use of out-of-plan services in 1972 by Medicare members of the Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP) is examined in terms of the demographic and enrollment characteristics of out-of-plan users, types of services received outside the plan, and the relationship of out-of-plan to in-plan use. Users of services outside the plan tended to be more seriously ill and more frequently hospitalized than those receiving all of their services within the plan. The costs to the SSA of providing medical care to HIP enrollees are compared with analogous costs for non-HIP beneficiaries, and the implications for the organization and financing of health services for the aged are discussed.  (+info)

Insurance coverage of unintended pregnancies resulting in live-born infants--Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, 1996. (3/2176)

In the United States during 1994, approximately 49% of all pregnancies, excluding miscarriages, were unintended. Unintended pregnancy can result in adverse health outcomes that affect the mother, infant, and family. Little is known about the distribution of unintended pregnancy with respect to the payment source for health care. In the absence of data for periconceptional payment source for health care, prenatal-care payment source is used as a surrogate. To develop recommendations to reduce unintended pregnancy, CDC analyzed insurance coverage-specific prevalences of live-born infants from unintended pregnancies among women aged 20-34 years using data from the Pregnancy Risk Assessment and Monitoring System (PRAMS) for 1996 (the most recent year for which data are available). This report summarizes the results of this analysis, which indicates that the highest rates of unintended pregnancy occurred among women covered by Medicaid, with lower rates among women covered by health-maintenance organizations (HMOs) or private insurance.  (+info)

Explaining the decline in health insurance coverage, 1979-1995. (4/2176)

The decline in health insurance coverage among workers from 1979 to 1995 can be accounted for almost entirely by the fact that per capita health care spending rose much more rapidly than personal income during this time period. We simulate health insurance coverage levels for 1996-2005 under alternative assumptions concerning the rate of growth of spending. We conclude that reduction in spending growth creates measurable increases in health insurance coverage for low-income workers and that the rapid increase in health care spending over the past fifteen years has created a large pool of low-income workers for whom health insurance is unaffordable.  (+info)

Mental health/medical care cost offsets: opportunities for managed care. (5/2176)

Health services researchers have long observed that outpatient mental health treatment sometimes leads to a reduction in unnecessary or excessive general medical care expenditures. Such reductions, or cost offsets, have been found following mental health treatment of distressed elderly medical inpatients, some patients as they develop major medical illnesses, primary care outpatients with multiple unexplained somatic complaints, and nonelderly adults with alcoholism. In this paper we argue that managed care has an opportunity to capture these medical care cost savings by training utilization managers to make mental health services more accessible to patients whose excessive use of medical care is related to psychological factors. For financial reasons, such policies are most likely to develop within health care plans that integrate the financing and management of mental health and medical/surgical benefits.  (+info)

Mixed signals: public policy and the future of health care R&D. (6/2176)

The incentives facing health care research and development (R&D) are influenced by the ambiguous signals sent by private and public insurance decisions affecting the use of, and payments for, existing technologies. Increasingly, that uncertainty is exacerbated by confusion over technologies' impact on health care costs, how costs are to be measured, and the social difficulty of determining medical "need" for purposes of insurance coverage. R&D executives appear to believe that "major" advances are more likely to win such coverage and thus to be profitable. The products that result, therefore, may make the current policy dilemma of cost containment versus service restriction more acute rather than less so. If the aim of policy is to cut costs, innovative remedies are necessary.  (+info)

Is health insurance in Greece in need of reform? (7/2176)

This paper aims to assess the relationship between insurance contributions and health benefits in Greece by using information from sickness funds' accounts. The paper argues that the fragmentation of social health insurance, and the particular ways in which sickness funds' financial services are organized, are a major source of inequity and are grossly inefficient. The survival of these systems in the 1990s cannot be explained except on grounds of inertia and corporate resistance.  (+info)

Health insurance in developing countries: lessons from experience. (8/2176)

Many developing countries are currently considering the possibility of introducing compulsory health insurance schemes. One reason is to attract more resources to the health sector. If those who, together with their employers, can pay for their health services and are made to do so by insurance, the limited tax funds can be concentrated on providing services for fewer people and thus improve coverage and raise standards. A second reason is dissatisfaction with existing services in which staff motivation is poor, resources are not used to best advantage and patients are not treated with sufficient courtesy and respect. This article describes the historical experience of the developed countries in introducing and steadily expanding the coverage of health insurance, sets out the consensus which has developed about health insurance (at least in Western European countries) and describes the different forms which health insurance can take. The aim is to bring out the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches from this experience, to set out the options for developing countries and to give warnings about the dangers of some approaches.  (+info)

The stability of individual health insurance markets is an area of concern that predates the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA). While the ACA introduced a range federal and state levers intended to stabilize individual health insurance markets, not all reforms were successful or achieved their desired aims. Further, in recent years, market conditions and political uncertainty underscore the need to strengthen the individual health insurance market infrastructure. With the repeal of the federal health insurance mandate, wider availability of short-term plans, and the expiration of the ACAs risk corridor and reinsurance provisions, federal and state governments are considering new ways to assure competition, affordability, and stability in the individual health insurance marketplaces. What do we know from the available evidence is effective in strengthening individual health insurance market? What are signs of destabilization? What are the most important questions for future research?. ...
Results from our study demonstrate the key role health insurance plays as a determinant of access to health care for adolescents. The presence of health insurance was independently associated with an increased likelihood of having a usual source of care, fewer unmet health care needs, and increased use of physician services. These findings are consistent with the findings of a large body of current literature on health insurance and access to care for children.2-8 However, they are unique in that they provide the first comprehensive look at adolescent health insurance using nationally representative data from the 1990s. The last such assessment of adolescent health insurance used data from the 1980s.10 ,11 Our results also provide new information on trends in health insurance coverage among adolescents. Most importantly, there has been no significant progress in expanding health insurance coverage for adolescents, with the percentage of adolescents with insurance remaining essentially unchanged ...
A severe lack of data on consumers and disease patterns has prevented insurers from offering the same type of innovative policies that are available in developed markets. A high claims ratio, combined with problems in the supply chain, has made it difficult for health insurers to make a profit in the short term.. The report The Private Health Insurance Market in India by Business Insights presents a detailed examination of Indias nascent private health insurance sector, exploring the market structure, the key trends and the main opportunities. In doing so, it sets the private health insurance sector in the context of the wider health insurance market, which is relevant because privately-owned insurance companies often participate in both the private and social sectors..

Despite expansions in the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), public health insurance coverage did not increase overall between 1998 and 1999. The percentage of nonelderly Americans covered by Medicaid and other government-sponsored health insurance coverage did not change between 1998 and 1999, though some children benefited from expansions in government-funded programs. The percentage of children in families just above the poverty level without health insurance coverage declined dramatically, from 27.2 percent uninsured in 1998 to 19.7 percent uninsured in 1999. Some of the decline can be attributed to expansions in Medicaid and S-CHIP, but it appears that expansions in employment-based health insurance and individually purchased coverage had an even larger effect than expansion of S-CHIP ...
Interesting concept- Of course we dont want higher premiums! Here is the question - if you start repealing the funding methods in an already underfunded bill, how are we gonna pay for all of Health Care Reform? - Reeve. Kathryn Mayer, LifeHealthPro 6/28/13.

By Elise Gould. One detail often lost in the heated debate over the creation of a public health insurance option is that the government is already providing health care to many children who would otherwise go without. Had it not been for public insurance, the share of children without any coverage would have grown from 2000 to 2008. Over that eight-year period, children under the age of 18 lost employer-sponsored health insurance at a faster rate than adults aged 18 to 64, but children also picked up public health insurance coverage at a faster rate.. As shown below (See figure), the share of children without insurance dropped 1.7 percentage points between 2000 and 2008, while the share of adults under the age of 65 without insurance rose 3.1 percentage points. By contrast, the share of children with public coverage grew 8.8 percentage points, as compared to only a 3.5 percentage point increase for the adult population under 65. Public insurance in the form of Medicaid and the State Childrens ...

Medicaid A small number of cases reporting Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) coverage (questions included in the MEPS health insurance section for editing purposes) were assigned Medicaid coverage. Since this report does not distinguish among sources of public insurance, no further edits were performed using the other public hospital/physician coverage variables. Other public hospital/physician coverage was included, however, when considering whether an individual was covered only by public insurance.. CHAMPUS/CHAMPVA. Respondents age 65 and over who reported CHAMPUS/CHAMPVA coverage were instead classified as covered by Medicare.. Private Health Insurance.

The obesity rate in the United States has risen significantly in the past few decades. While a number of economic causes for the rise in obesity have been explored, little attention has been on the role of health insurance per se. This paper examines obesity in the context of a model where health insurance status can influence body weight. We attempt to isolate the effects of ex ante moral hazard, where people with health insurance may change their behaviors towards weight control. We use data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System from 1993 to 2002 to determine the potential effect of having health insurance on measures of body weight. In our analyses, we control for a variety of confounding factors that may influence body weight and address the endogenous nature of health insurance. Our results show evidence that having insurance is associated with higher body mass (particularly for those above the poverty threshold) and an increased probability of being overweight. However, we ...

Here come those unaffordable costs. Lets say you dont have health insurance and youre playing intramural soccer with your friends when you suddenly trip, fall, and break your arm.

This chapter discusses private health insurance, social health insurance, and tax-financed health care. These three health insurance systems differ in terms of three Cs: costs, coverage, and choice. Private health insurance is the most costly one to manage. Coverage is limited to people who have taken out insurance, but the choice to do so is of course voluntary. The contrasting system is taxation: it is cheap, it involves universal coverage, but it is compulsory. Social health insurance (SHI) lies between the two contrasting systems, but in practice is quite similar to tax-funded health care on two crucial issues. First, there is no link between size of the individuals contribution and their expected use of health care. Hence, the inefficiencies in the labour market associated with direct ...
If youre under 26, you may be able to get covered on a parents health insurance plan. This applies to you even if you are at school, not living at home, eligible for an employers plan, or not financially dependent on your parents. It even applies to you if you are married. However, after you turn 26, things change.. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare or the ACA, opened the door for many people to get health insurance who previously didnt have access. A provision of the law allows young adults to stay on their parents health insurance until age 26. As a result, millions of young adults became eligible to have health insurance on their parents plans who wouldnt have qualified otherwise.. This, however, this means you need to start considering options for health insurance before your 26th birthday because your coverage on your parents plan ends, and eventually you do need your own coverage.. If your 26th birthday is right around the corner, you might have a lot of questions to ...

Responsiveness of health care services in low and middle income countries has been given little attention. Despite being introduced over a decade ago in many developing countries, national health insurance schemes have yet to be evaluated in terms of responsiveness of health care services. Although this responsiveness has been evaluated in many developed countries, it has rarely been done in developing countries. The concept of responsiveness is multi-dimensional and can be measured across various domains including prompt attention, dignity, communication, autonomy, choice of provider, quality of facilities, confidentiality and access to family support. This study examines the insured users perspectives of their health care services responsiveness. This retrospective, cross-sectional survey took place between October 2010 and March 2011. The study used a modified out-patient questionnaire from a responsiveness survey designed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Seven hundred and ninety six (796)

This research brief describes work documented in The Effect of Access to Post-Retirement Health Insurance on the Decision to Retire Early (RP-360); Health Insurance and Labor Market Transitions of Older Workers (DRU-1797); and Health Insurance and Retirement Behavior: Evidence from the Health and Retirement Survey (DRU-1798).
1. Introduction. 1.1. In conformance with the decision by UNC System to implement student health insurance requirements, most students are required to have health insurance while in attendance at East Carolina University (ECU). Specifically, ECU requires undergraduate students who are enrolled in six or more on-campus credit hours, are degree seeking and are eligible to pay a health fee, and graduate students who are enrolled in three or more on-campus credit hours, are degree seeking and are eligible to pay the health fee, to have creditable health insurance coverage, as that term is defined under federal law.. 2. Insurance Requirement. 2.1. In order to meet this requirement, students can either be enrolled in their parents/guardians creditable health insurance plan (if under 26 years of age) or some other creditable health insurance plan. Otherwise, students will be enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan offered to ECU students (Student Health Plan).. 3. Insurance Hard Waiver ...
In 1954, the Internal Revenue Service stipulated that employer contributions to the health insurance plans of their employees were to be excluded from employee taxable income. Today, the tax subsidy is major feature of the U.S. health care market. This paper examines the initial effects of the tax subsidy on the demand for health insurance using previously unexamined data from 1953 and 1958. Results suggest that the tax subsidy increased the growth of group insurance, particularly among union members and employed persons. This is a critical effect because group insurance is not only less expensive than individual insurance, but it is also easier to obtain, and households with access to group health insurance are far more likely to purchase health insurance coverage than those without similar access. By increasing access to group insurance, the tax subsidy fostered an increase in the purchase of group health insurance by people who may not have purchased individual coverage, and generated ...

Downloadable ! Author(s): Jonathan Gruber & Brigitte Madrian. 1993 Abstract: Although the vast majority of working individuals aged 55-64 receive health insurance coverage through their employment, many of these individuals face the prospect of losing such coverage should they retire before becoming eligible for guaranteed public coverage through Medicare at age 65. Because the expected medical expenses of this group are large and uncertain, the availability of health insurance coverage after retirement could be a key factor in the retirement decision of older workers. We examine the effect of health insurance on retirement by looking at variation in state and federal continuation of coverage mandates, laws which allow individuals to continue purchasing health insurance through a previous employer for a specified number of months after leaving the firm. By allowing individuals to maintain their employer-provided health insurance after retirement, these laws decrease the cost of early retirement for
This year student health insurance cost will be increasing from $250 to $715 annually for undergraduate and from $361 to $1,033 for graduate students. The coverage being provided by the new student health insurance plan has been improved in keeping with the premium increase. The new policy will have a $50,000 per accident or illness policy limit with a $1,000 prescription drug benefit and $750 in wellness benefits. Students who have other coverage available will be able to waive out of the student health insurance plan.. New Jersey Statute 18A:62-15 provides in part that:. 1. Every student enrolled as a full-time student shall present evidence of the health insurance coverage required by subsection a. of this section to the institution at least annually.. 2. The State Department of Health shall require all public and private institutions of higher education in this State to offer health insurance coverage on a group or individual basis for purchase by students who are required to maintain the ...

Many low- and middle-income countries are reforming their health financing mechanisms as part of broader strategies to achieve universal health coverage (UHC). Voluntary social health insurance, despite evidence of resulting inequities, is attractive to policy makers as it generates additional funds for health, and provides access to a greater range of benefits for the formally employed. The South African government introduced a voluntary health insurance scheme (GEMS) for government employees in 2005 with the aim of improving access to care and extending health coverage. In this paper we ask whether the new scheme has assisted in efforts to move towards UHC. Using a cross-sectional survey across four of South Africas nine provinces, we interviewed 1329 government employees, from the education and health sectors. Data were collected on socio-demographics, insurance coverage, health status and utilisation of health care. Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine if service utilisation was
Objectives. We examined the impact of expanding health insurance coverage on socioeconomic disparities in total and cardiovascular disease mortality from 1998 to 2007 in Colombia. Methods. We used Poisson regression to analyze data from mortality registries (633 905 deaths) linked to population census data. We used the relative index of inequality to compare disparities in mortality by education between periods of moderate increase (1998-2002) and accelerated increase (2003-2007) in health insurance coverage. Results. Disparities in mortality by education widened over time. Among men, the relative index of inequality increased from 2.59 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 2.52, 2.67) in 1998-2002 to 3.07 (95% CI = 2.99, 3.15) in 2003-2007, and among women, from 2.86 (95% CI = 2.77, 2.95) to 3.12 (95% CI = 3.03, 3.21), respectively. Disparities increased yearly by 11% in men and 4% in women in 1998-2002, whereas they increased by 1% in men per year and remained stable among women in 2003-2007. ...
Life is by far the most precious thing humans have in their hands, as someone has truly said-Health is Wealth. One can lose out on their money, on a job, or on any other materialistic or non-materialistic thing, but losing out on health is probably the worst, as this could seldom be gained back. And therefore, no amount of persuasion could ever justify the importance of a health insurance policy. A health insurance covers you and your loved ones from any of the unforeseen emergencies that life may throw at you. This includes contracting a disease unexpectedly or falling ill at an unexpected time, or even meeting with an accident while totally unprepared.. While getting an insurance just for your self is one thing, but wouldnt you want to extend the same benefit for those near ones, whom you love dearly? By introducing family health insurance plans at a marginally higher cost, health insurance companies such as Aviva Insurance, Bharti AXA Insurance, Max Life Insurance, etc. have earned ...

In the 1944 Supreme Court Case, United States v. South-Eastern Underwriters Association, the Court established that the business of insurance constitutes interstate commerce, and therefore is subject to Congressional oversight under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. This decision specifically held that the Sherman Act - the federal antitrust statute - applied to insurance.. In quick reaction, insurance companies lobbied Congress to pass the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 to establish a special-interest exemption for the industry from federal antitrust laws. After 70 years, it is apparent that the unbridled antitrust exemption created by Congress in the 1940s was not prudent. Over the decades - and expeditiously since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, in 2009 - the health insurance market has mutated into one of the least transparent and most anti-competitive industries in the United States.. The Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act, HR 372, is legislation designed to amend ...
Non-elderly adults have not been so fortunate. Those between ages 18 and 64 experienced a 4.6 percentage-point increase in the share uninsured from 2000 to 2012. Unlike children, their ESI losses were not fully offset by increasing public coverage.. For young adults, health reform played a key role in preventing a decline in workplace coverage. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act includes provisions that allow young adults up to age 26 to secure health insurance coverage through their parents employer-sponsored health insurance policies. Looking closely at changes in employer-sponsored insurance since the young adult provision took effect in mid-2010, it is clear that young adults are benefiting.. Figure E illustrates the change in employer-sponsored health insurance and the change in employment rates by age group from 2009 and 2012. Young adults, ages 19-25, are the only age group to see increases in employer-sponsored health insurance since 2009. One explanation for this outcome ...

The Insurance Regulator and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has brought in changes to the definition of pre-existing diseases. Through a circular dated February 10, 2020, IRDAI has deleted the additional/modified clause in its current definition of pre-existing diseases. Experts say this move could bring in a reduction in the claim rejection rates in health insurance policies.. The regulator had modified the definition of pre-existing diseases last year. IRDAI had included certain illnesses if they were diagnosed within 3 months after purchasing the health insurance policy. However, as per the new definition, now no such disease will be treated as a pre-existing disease even if diagnosed within 3 months, or later, of buying the health insurance policy.. Definition of Pre-existing Diseases as per IRDAI. The existing definition of Pre-Existing Disease sates that (not applicable for Overseas Travel Insurance) pre-existing disease means any condition, ailment, injury or disease:. i) Old ...
Short-term, limited-duration insurance is a type of health insurance coverage that is designed to fill temporary gaps in coverage when an individual is transitioning from one plan or coverage to another plan or coverage. Although short-term, limited-duration insurance is not an excepted benefit, it is similarly exempt from PHS Act requirements because it is not individual health insurance coverage. Section 2791(b)(5) of the PHS Act provides that the term individual health insurance coverage means health insurance coverage offered to individuals in the individual market, but does not include short-term, limited-duration insurance. The PHS Act does not define short-term, limited-duration insurance. Under current regulations, short-term, limited-duration insurance means health insurance coverage provided pursuant to a contract with an issuer that has an expiration date specified in the contract (taking into account any extensions that may be elected by the policyholder without the issuers ...

Australians who have private health insurance can use that insurance to completely or partially fund their stay in public or private hospitals.. This report presents information on admitted patient separations (hospitalisations) that were completely or partially funded by private health insurance in Australias public and private hospitals over the past 10 years. It includes comparisons of private health insurance-funded hospitalisations with hospitalisations for public patients and hospitalisations for patients funded by other sources. Also included are comparisons of funding for hospitalisations in public and private hospitals. As not all services are available at all hospitals, particularly in regional and remote areas, sometimes the type of care required may determine which type of hospital is used.. This summary provides examples of the statistics and information available in this report.. ...
It is important that community-based health insurance (CBHI) schemes are designed in such a way as to ensure the relevance of the benefit packages to potential clients. Hence, this paper provides an understanding of the preferred benefit packages by different economic status groups as well as urban and rural dwellers for CBHI in Southeast Nigeria. The study took place in rural, urban and semi-urban communities of south-east Nigeria. A questionnaire was used to collect information from 3070 randomly picked household heads. Focus group discussions were used to collect qualitative data. Data was examined for links between preferences for benefit packages with SES and geographic residence of the respondents. Respondents in the rural areas and in the lower SES preferred a comprehensive benefit package which includes all inpatient, outpatient and emergencies services, while those in urban areas as well as those in the higher SES group showed a preference for benefit packages which will cover only basic

Downloadable! We make use of panel data from the China Health and Nutrition Survey between 1991 and 2006 to investigate whether health insurance increases out-of-pocket (OOP) health expenditure risk. We find that health insurance increases the probability of catastrophic OOP health expenditures using a series of Probit models. We then use two-part as well as sample selection models to account for selection on unobservable variables and find that although the probability of positive OOP health expenditures increases with the availability of health insurance, the actual level of OOP health expenditures decreases. More specifically, we find that for a per- son with positive OOP health expenditures, having health insurance reduces the level of OOP expenses by 12.56 percent while controlling for selection effects.

Last February, four states (namely Florida, New Jersey, Ohio and Tennessee) were granted a temporary federal waiver that exempted them from meeting national health insurance standards. This allows health insurance for Tennessee plans to continue offering policies that fail to meet standards set forth by The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.. The long-term goal continues to be that Tennessee health insurance providers will have to increase policy benefits by 2014. The temporary waiver was intended to allow consumers to keep their coverage because limited benefits are better than no health care coverage at all. It was feared that an immediate switch to better health care plans would mean higher insurance quotes than individual policyholders and small business owners would be able to afford.. Under the new health care reform law, health insurance for Tennessee must provide at least $750,000 in health care costs, including services from doctors and hospitals along with prescription ...
Under a new program introduced by Talecris Biotherapeutics, patients who regularly use Gamunex (Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human), 10% Caprylate/Chromatography Purified) may be able to receive continuing treatment in the event of a lapse in private insurance coverage. Gamunex is an immunoglobulin intravenous (IGIV) therapy that contains antibodies purified from the donated blood plasma of thousands of people. Gamunex is indicated as replacement therapy of primary humoral immunodeficiency disease (PI), and as immunomodulatory therapy for both idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). People with PI require IGIV on a regular basis to maintain their fragile balance of immunity. Without regular treatments, which can be disrupted in the often complex and challenging health insurance environment, PI patients can suffer from serious infections and illnesses. For this reason, Talecris developed the Gamunex Connexions Certificate Program, to ...
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a leading contributor to the burden of disease in low- and middle-income countries. Guidelines for CVD prevention care in low resource settings have been developed but little information is available on strategies to implement this care. A community health insurance program might be used to improve patients access to care. The operational research project QUality Improvement Cardiovascular care Kwara - I (QUICK-I) aims to assess the feasibility of CVD prevention care in rural Nigeria, according to international guidelines, in the context of a community based health insurance scheme. Design: prospective observational hospital based cohort study. Setting: a primary health care centre in rural Nigeria. Study population: 300 patients at risk for development of CVD (patients with hypertension, diabetes, renal disease or established CVD) who are enrolled in the Hygeia Community Health Plan. Measurements: demographic and socio- economic data, physical and laboratory
It is clear that health financing-with the limited resources- has been a challenge that the government has expressed in all national documents. The government realizes the inability to provide free care to all, in particular with high population growth. The current health system has been unable to meet citizens needs of healthcare due to; low governmental expenditure on health, constant increase of private health care cost, inability of citizens to bear financial burden of illness and constraints on the public health sector such as the poor administrative efficiency.. The notion of health insurance in Yemen has been discussed for more than two decades now. Nevertheless, the law of health insurance scheme has been recently enacted upon. Therefore, what is behind the delay in the enactment of health insurance law despite the long existence of the idea and when would the law see the light?. Is it the current structure of the health system that is anticipated to change dramatically if the Social ...
The number of patients with mental disorders is increasing all over the world and they have a high prevalence of physical complications. To analyze and compare the cost of mental disorders with the total medical costs such as mental disorders and physical disorders, we analyzed the cost that patients with mental disorders incurred. We investigated the distribution of medical costs and the characteristics of diseases by using the health insurance claims of people in City A, Japan from March 2013 to February 2014. The subjects had one or more of 4 mental disorders: schizophrenia, alcohol related disorders, bipolar disorder, and depressive episode. As a result, the total number of patients who met inclusion criteria per year was 7403 (6522 outpatients and 881 inpatients). It was revealed that the hospitalization rate of patients with mental disorders increased with age, and many inpatients stayed in hospital for a long time. Also, it was revealed that many patients with mental disorders were in complicated
Dr. Rohack addressed the group saying they must be adaptable to the changing environment and open for change. Dr. Nielson and others stressed the group should focus more on patient care than defending the health insurance industry. In a reply-editorial last week to the New York Times Dr. Nielson expressed the AMAs readiness to work with President Obama and Congress on health care reform.. Nielsons reply to the New York Times came a day after a report the paper published indicating the AMAs opposition to a public option plan. Robert Pear reported on statements issued by the AMA to members of Congress stating their worry that a public health insurance plan would drive private insurers out of business and hamper competition. The AMAs comments noted that some 70% of Americans currently receive their insurance from private companies.. Some members of the AMA were unhappy with President Obamas address to the group earlier this week. Tort reform is key in the minds of many physicians to bringing ...
As employment becomes more precarious, and spells of displacement become more common across the labor market, many individuals are forced to make decisions about the speed at which they seek reemployment and the types of employment they will seek. Using repeated cross-sectional data from various years of the Displaced Worker Supplement of the Current Population Survey, we examine the degree to which employer-provided health insurance and organizational provision of advanced layoff warning helped workers-particularly those from earlier birth cohorts-navigate the labor market during a period of growing employment flexibility. Our results indicate that workers from older cohorts, rather than older chronological ages, suffered more from displacement in terms of longer unemployment spells and declines in job quality upon reemployment. Workers able to obtain a job with health insurance had shorter unemployment durations, while those displaced from jobs with health insurance remained unemployed for ...
