Challenges in securing access to care for children. (1/437)

Congressional approval of Title XXI of the Social Security Act, which created the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), is a significant public effort to expand health insurance to children. Experience with the Medicaid program suggests that eligibility does not guarantee children's enrollment or their access to needed services. This paper develops an analytic framework and presents potential indicators to evaluate CHIP's performance and its impact on access, defined broadly to include access to health insurance and access to health services. It also presents options for moving beyond minimal monitoring to an evaluation strategy that would help to improve program outcomes. The policy considerations associated with such a strategy are also discussed.  (+info)

Prepaid capitation versus fee-for-service reimbursement in a Medicaid population. (2/437)

Utilization of health resources by 37,444 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a capitated health maintenance organization was compared with that of 227,242 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a traditional fee-for-service system over a 1-year period (1983-1984) in the state of Kentucky. Primary care providers in the capitated program had financial incentives to reduce downstream costs like specialist referral, emergency room use, and hospitalizations. The average number of physician visits was similar for both groups (4.47/year in the capitated program; 5.09/year in the fee-for-service system). However, the average number of prescriptions (1.9 versus 4.9 per year), average number of hospital admissions per recipient (0.11 versus 0.22 per year), and average number of hospital days per 1,000 recipients (461 versus 909 per year) were 5% to 60% lower in the capitated group than in the fee-for-service group. The Citicare capitated program resulted in a dramatic reduction in healthcare resource utilization compared with the concurrent fee-for-service system for statewide Medicaid recipients.  (+info)

"Carving out" conditions from global capitation rates: protecting high-cost patients, physicians, and health plans in a managed care environment. (3/437)

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)

The effect of a Medicaid managed care program on the adequacy of prenatal care utilization in Rhode Island. (4/437)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether adequacy of prenatal care utilization improved after the implementation of a Medicaid managed care program in Rhode Island. METHODS: Rhode Island birth certificate data (1993-1995; n = 37021) were used to analyze pre- and post-program implementation changes in adequacy of prenatal care utilization. Logistic regression models were used to characterize the variation in prenatal care adequacy as a function of both time and the various covariates. RESULTS: Adequacy of prenatal care utilization for Medicaid patients improved significantly after implementation of the program, from 57.1% to 62.1% (odds ratio [OR] = 1.2, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.1, 1.3). After the program was implemented, Medicaid patients who went to private physicians' offices for prenatal care were 1.4 times as likely as before to receive adequate prenatal care (OR = 1.4, 95% CI = 1.2, 1.7). CONCLUSIONS: Unlike many other Medicaid expansions for pregnant women, the RIte Care program in Rhode Island has resulted in significant improvement in adequacy of prenatal care utilization for its enrollees. This improvement was due to specific program interventions that addressed and changed organizational and delivery system barriers to care.  (+info)

A conflict of strategies: Medicaid managed care and Medicaid maximization. (5/437)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the influence of state strategies aimed at increasing federal Medicaid matching dollars on the design of states' Medicaid managed care programs. STUDY DESIGN: Data obtained from the 1996-1997 case studies of 13 states to examine how states have adapted the design of their Medicaid managed care programs in part because of maximization strategies, to accommodate the many roles and responsibilities that Medicaid has assumed over the years. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Our study showed that as states made the shift to managed care, some found that the responsibilities undertaken in part through maximization strategies proved to be in conflict with their Medicaid managed care initiatives. Among other things, the study revealed that most states included provisions that preserved the health care safety net, such as adapting the managed care benefit package and promoting the participation of safety net providers in managed care programs. In addition, most of the study states continued to pay special subsidies to safety net providers, including hospitals and clinics. CONCLUSIONS: States have made real progress in moving a large number of Medicaid beneficiaries into managed care. At the same time, many states have specially crafted their managed care programs to accommodate safety net providers and existing funding mechanisms. By making these adaptations states, in the long run, may compromise the central goals of managed care: controlling costs and improving Medicaid beneficiaries' access to and quality of care.  (+info)

Medical records and privacy: empirical effects of legislation. (6/437)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of state legislation requiring patient informed consent prior to medical record abstraction by external researchers for a specific study. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Informed consent responses obtained from November 1997 through April 1998 from members of a Minnesota-based IPA model health plan. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive case study of consent to gain access to medical records for a pharmaco-epidemiologic study of seizures associated with use of a pain medication that was conducted as part of the FDA's post-marketing safety surveillance program to evaluate adverse events associated with approved drugs. DATA COLLECTION: The informed consent process approved by an institutional review board consisted of three phases: (1) a letter from the health plan's medical director requesting participation, (2) a second mailing to nonrespondents, and (3) a follow-up telephone call to nonrespondents. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Of 140 Minnesota health plan members asked to participate in the medical records study, 52 percent (73) responded and 19 percent (26) returned a signed consent form authorizing access to their records for the study. For 132 study subjects enrolled in five other health plans in states where study-specific consent was not required, health care providers granted access to patient medical records for 93 percent (123) of the members. CONCLUSION: Legislation requiring patient informed consent to gain access to medical records for a specific research study was associated with low participation and increased time to complete that observational study. Efforts to protect patient privacy may come into conflict with the ability to produce timely and valid research to safeguard and improve public health.  (+info)

Access to care for the uninsured: is access to a physician enough? (7/437)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined a private-sector, statewide program (Kentucky Physicians Care) of care for uninsured indigent persons regarding provision of preventive services. METHODS: A survey was conducted of a stratified random sample of 2509 Kentucky adults (811 with private insurance, 849 Medicaid recipients, 849 Kentucky Physicians Care recipients). RESULTS: The Kentucky Physicians Care group had significantly lower rates of receipt of preventive services. Of the individuals in this group, 52% cited cost as the primary reason for not receiving mammography, and 38% had not filled prescribed medicines in the previous year. CONCLUSIONS: Providing free access to physicians fills important needs but is not sufficient for many uninsured patients to receive necessary preventive services.  (+info)

Medicaid managed care payment rates in 1998. (8/437)

This paper reports on a new survey of state Medicaid managed care payment rates. We collected rate data for Medicaid's Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC)/Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and poverty-related populations and made adjustments to make the data comparable across states. The results show a slightly more than twofold variation in capitation rates among states, caused primarily by fee-for-service spending levels and demographics. There is a very low correlation between the variation in Medicaid capitation rates among states and the variations in Medicare's adjusted average per capita cost. The data are not sufficient to answer questions about the adequacy of rates but should help to further policy discussions and research.  (+info)

As states continue to refine their SCHIP programs, the Academy suggests that the following principles and implementation and evaluation strategies be incorporated in their efforts:. 1.. Expand Comprehensive Coverage. SCHIP programs should provide comprehensive, quality health care coverage to the largest number of uninsured children possible.. A.. Congress should expand SCHIP to allow states to include children through 21 years of age. States should adopt the highest income eligibility allowable and should discontinue asset testing to determine eligibility. To reach even more children, more flexible income limits should be considered.. B.. States should allow adolescent emancipated minors to be evaluated for SCHIP eligibility based on their own income.22. C.. States should consider offering a SCHIP buy-in option for children whose family incomes are above their states SCHIP eligibility level but who do not have access to or cannot afford comprehensive private insurance.. D.. States should ...

I am concerned that not only is SCHIP a socialistic program but look at the title of it. The word CHIP is embedded in the title. This whole push for socialized medicine (Michael Moore being one of the pushers)is a very dangerous prospect. As our health system stands right now, it is controlled by the corporations which IS the government. The corporations are meshed with the government. I think thats called fascism. On the one hand Michael Moore tells us how horrible our healthcare system is and that it is the fault of the corporations. Then he tells us that we need government run healthcare......which is ONE with the corporations. This makes no sense. Michael Moore appears to be controlled opposition. He is making the people think that the Elites solution (government controlled health care) is their idea so we will end up clamoring for it and accepting it. ...

Although many families with low incomes are eligible for various health insurance programs, more than three of five eligible children are not enrolled in Medicaid or the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). Churning in enrollment is also common: over half of low-income family members who repeatedly experience periods without coverage leave Medicaid and then re-enroll later. Focusing on eight states, this project will examine factors that affect program enrollment and coverage stability, including a new federal rule requiring people to document their citizenship when applying for or renewing Medicaid coverage. In Phase 1, state officials and others convened to discuss the implications of the new citizenship documentation requirements and how these effects might be measured. In Phase 2, the researchers will analyze administrative data to determine the impact of the new Medicaid rule and other factors. Findings will inform debate over extending public coverage to a greater number of ...

Most low-income households now have access to public programs but many fail to take advantage of them. Virtually all children from low-income families are now eligible for Medicaid or the various State Childrens Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP). Yet the parents of about 7.7 million eligible children failed to enroll them. The Urban Institute found that 88 percent of these parents knew about the health insurance programs for poor children, but less than one-fourth had ever attempted to enroll their children or even inquire about the programs. The Urban Institute found that 40 percent of those who had not inquired and 16 percent who inquired and didnt apply said they did not need or want the programs ...
On December 3, 2014, the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee convened a hearing entitled The Future of the Childrens Health Insurance Program. Witnesses for the hearing included Evelyne Baumrucker, Health Financing Analyst at the Congressional Research Service (CRS); Alison Mitchell, Health Care Financing Analyst at CRS; Carolyn Yocom, Director of Health Care at the Government Accountability Office (GAO); and Anne Schwartz, PhD, Executive Director of the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC). During the hearing Members and witnesses discussed the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which was created in 1997 and reauthorized by the Childrens Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) in 2009. The 2010 ACA contained provisions to extend CHIP funding until September 30, 2015, and required states to maintain eligibility standards through 2019. On July 29, 2014, the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the ...

The program, known as the State Childrens Health Insurance Program, or SCHIP, was vetoed Wednesday morning as the president affirmed that the program expansion would be too costly. Bush said it was reaching limits beyond its original objective.. The president said that several states are spending more money on adults than children. He also declared that the proposal could have possibly allowed children in families earning as much as $83,000 a year to receive coverage under the program, which diverts them away from private health insurance.. That doesnt sound poor to me, Bush said. The policies of the government ought to be: help poor children and to focus on poor children. And the policies of the government ought to be: help people find private insurance, not federal coverage. And thats where the philosophical divide comes in.. Bush added that the bill passed by Congress manifests the desire by some in Washington, D.C. to federalize health care. I dont think that is good for the ...
As Republicans in Congress continue efforts to pass tax reform, the November Kaiser Health Tracking Poll examines views of the plans and how they relate to health care issues. Overall, reforming the tax code is seen as a top priority for President Trump and Congress by about three in ten (28 percent), falling well-behind several health care issues such as reauthorizing funding for the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) (62 percent) and stabilizing the ACA marketplaces (48 percent). In addition, the majority of the public (55 percent) support the idea of eliminating the requirement for all Americans to have health insurance or else pay a fine as part of the Republican tax plan, however views vary party. In contrast, the majority of the public (68 percent), including majorities across parties, oppose eliminating the tax deduction for individuals who have high health care costs. The poll also takes an early look at the publics views of the potential consequence of Congress not ...

Kimmel was returning to his late-night show after taking a week off for the boys second heart surgery.. His voice cracking at times, Kimmel gave a monologue calling on the US Congress to restore a childrens health insurance programme that has recently lapsed..

Kimmels son, Billy, had surgery soon after he was born in April and the eight-month-old had another operation last week.. The host wants US politicians to restore the Childrens Health Insurance Program, which has been unfunded since September because of a political stalemate.. Kimmel said the programme had covered nine million children and was in place for several decades..

Since FY04, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has used an online data application system through our security portal to collect student data information about our state-funded Academic Support grant programs with fund codes 596/597, 594/624, 619/592, and 632/625. Application in this sense means a web-based tool that allows districts and other organizations to view and update information about students who are eligible to receive services through state-funded Academic Support grants. While this online application is more user-friendly for most districts, the Department also allows districts the option of downloading a prescribed excel template, completing required data elements and then uploading the revised excel file into the portal. This entire process is designed to make it easier for grantees to submit required information, to have the shared information be secure from outsiders, and to help the Department more efficiently and effectively collect and analyze data. ...
A state program that provides health coverage to about 102,000 low-wage workers lacks oversight and direction, according an independent audit.

Among the conclusions of the June 2013 MACPAC report is that more research is needed on how nonphysician practitioners could improve access to care for Medicaid enrollees with disabilities. The Medicaid and the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) released its Report to the Congress on Medicaid and CHIP last week. The report, issued annually, includes a chapter on access to care for adults with disabilities. Based on large-scale population surveys, provider and stakeholder data, consumer interviews and other qualitative data, and state Medicaid program data, MACPAC reported that access to health care among Medicaid-only enrollees with disabilities is comparable to that of other insured persons with disabilities; that unmet need among Medicaid-only enrollees with disabilities is lower than that of individuals with disabilities covered by private insurance or Medicare only; and that preventive services are underused among Medicaid enrollees with ...

On Monday Aug. 31, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published a list of proposed benchmark health plans for each state for coverage beginning in January, 2017.

All health plans offering small group coverage (up to 100 employees) or individual coverage are required to provide these essential benefits, posted here: More specifically, pediatric vision benefits were included in the existing coverage of the proposed benchmark plans in 30 states (including Washington DC). If the selected benchmark plan did not include coverage for pediatric vision services, then the states were required to supplement their benchmark plan with the benefits covered by Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), which covers annual eye exams and eyeglasses, or the states Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) ...
With economic, political, and historical problems facing a campaign for single payer, isnt it time to settle for a second best plan and isnt the plan of Barack Obama, the Democratic Party nominee, an excellent choice for second best? The first thing to look for in a reform plan is its potential to do some good. Second, will the means it adopts stand the test of time?. Obamas plan would indeed do some good by making timely health care available to more people. It would give people who cannot afford health insurance a government subsidy to use in buying health insurance, provided they are not eligible for Medicaid or State Childrens Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). This would give many people the health care that they might otherwise wait too long to seek. The subsidy for the uninsured would be on a sliding scale up to the highest income for eligibility. Except for children, however, Obamas plan does not mandate insurance for anyone. How many uninsured will buy insurance then depends on how ...

Health care reform is a change to health policies on a national level. Health care reform consists of improving health care and its quality, improving the quality of specialists, and allowing more citizens to receive health care by having little or no cost at all. Americans should care about how health care reform was created, and the adverse effect on the different classes of people. Health care reform was discussed about in the United States by political figures such as President Bill Clinton (1997) when state children health insurance programs were implemented. On March 21st, 2010 President Obama implemented legislation that intended to cover 32 million uninsured people. Health care reform consists of these key parts, setting the agenda, formulating policy, and adopting policy. These procedures were necessary to produce positive outcomes for health care reform. The rules and procedures used to pass health care reform in 2010 were necessary to create these policies ...
The census data also found that 11.7 percent of U.S. children under 18 lacked health insurance, compared with 10.9 percent in 2005. In a statement released Tuesday, the executive director of the American Public Health Association, Georges Benjamin, observed, This is a travesty.. Tragically, our children share the burden. 8.7 million children-or more than one in 10-were uninsured in 2006, up from 8 million, he continued. Access to health care is critical, especially for children. Children who are uninsured are more than three times less likely to have seen a doctor in the last year and have a higher incidence of preventable disease than insured children.. The data served to add more voices to an already contentious debate in Washington regarding Congress reauthorization of the State Childrens Health Insurance Program, designed with the goal of expanding health insurance to children whose families earn too much money to be eligible for Medicaid, but not enough money to purchase private ...

This bill, the Healthy California Act, would create the Healthy California program to provide comprehensive universal single-payer health care coverage and a health care cost control system for the benefit of all residents of the state.

The bill would require the board to seek all necessary waivers, approvals, and agreements to allow various existing federal health care payments to be paid to the Healthy California program, which would then assume responsibility for all benefits and services previously paid for with ...

When the first President Bush called for a thousand points of light, Democrats chuckled at the metaphor and saw his calls for volunteerism as an inexpensive way to keep his promise to create a kinder, gentler nation. Utahs Hatch has worked with his Democratic friend from Massachusetts so often and so respectfully that when he describes their joint bills - the most famous is the State Childrens Health Insurance Program - he insists on referring to them in one big mouthful as Kennedy-Hatch-Hatch-Kennedy. [...] the service idea is rooted in the best and most communitarian forms of both conservatism and progressivism. Why would Republicans and conservatives support this bill? Hatch asked during an interview, and then he answered, noting that it promotes help for faith-based as well as secular groups and gives a vital role to state governments. [...] he is positively tender when he describes visiting Habitat for Humanity projects, meeting with Teach for America volunteers, or spending time with
