Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
An Act prohibiting a health plan from establishing lifetime limits or annual limits on the dollar value of benefits for any participant or beneficiary after January 1, 2014. It permits a restricted annual limit for plan years beginning prior to January 1, 2014. It provides that a health plan shall not be prevented from placing annual or lifetime per-beneficiary limits on covered benefits. The Act sets up a competitive health insurance market.

Implications of managed care denials for pediatric inpatient care. (1/118)With the growing penetration of managed care into the healthcare market, providers continue to experience increasing cost constraints. In this environment, it is important to track reimbursement denials and understand the managed care organization's rationale for refusal of payment. This is especially critical for providers of pediatric care, as children justifiably have unique healthcare needs and utilization patterns. We developed a system for tracking and documenting denials in our institution and found that health maintenance organizations denied claims primarily for one of three reasons: medically unnecessary care, care provided as a response to social (rather than medical) need, and provider inefficiencies. Health maintenance organization denials are also growing annually at our institutions. This knowledge can not only help providers of pediatric care more effectively negotiate future contracts, but provides an opportunity to differentiate the health needs of the pediatric patient from those of the adult. This information can be used as a basis for education, pediatric outcome studies, and guideline development--all tools that can help providers receive reasonable reimbursement for pediatric services and enable them to meet the complex health needs of children. Recommendations for action are discussed. (+info)
Differences in physician compensation for cardiovascular services by age, sex, and race. (2/118)The purpose was to determine whether physicians receive substantially less compensation from patient groups (women, older patients, and nonwhite patients) that are reported to have low rates of utilization of cardiovascular services. Over an 18-month period we collected information on payments to physicians by 3,194 consecutive patients who underwent stress testing an 833 consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous coronary angioplasty at the Yale University Cardiology Practice. Although the charges for procedures were not related to patient characteristics, there were large and significant differences in payment to physicians based on age, sex, and race. For example, physicians who performed percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty received at least $2,500 from, or on behalf of, 72% of the patients 40 to 64 years old, 22% of the patients 65 to 74 years old, and 3% of the patients 75 years and older (P < 0.001); from 49% of the men and 28% of the women (P < 0.001); and 42% of the whites and 31% of the nonwhites (P < 0.001). Similar differences were observed for stress testing. These associations were largely explained by differences in insurance status. (+info)
Uncompensated care and hospital conversions in Florida. (3/118)Hospital conversions to for-profit ownership have prompted concern about continuing access to care for the poor or uninsured. This DataWatch presents an analysis of the rate of uncompensated care provided by Florida hospitals before and after converting to for-profit ownership. Uncompensated care declined greatly in the converting public hospitals, which had a significant commitment to uncompensated care before conversion. Among converting nonprofit hospitals, uncompensated care levels were low before conversion and did not change following conversion. The study suggests that policymakers should assess the risk entailed in a conversion by considering the hospital's historic mission and its current role in the community. (+info)
Alternative funding policies for the uninsured: exploring the value of hospital tax exemption. (4/118)The tax exemption accorded private, nonprofit hospitals is being subjected to more scrutiny as the numbers of uninsured grow; meanwhile, charity care competes with market-driven priorities. Current public policies tie hospital tax exemption to the provision of charity care, but there is a gap in the size and distribution of values between tax exemption and the charity care that is provided. Most hospitals, in a study reported here, provided free care at a level below the value of their tax exemption, even when 50 percent of bad debt was included in the care value. However, hospitals in the poorest communities offered considerably more care than the value of their tax exemption, whereas those in wealthier communities offered considerably less. Policies at local, state, and federal levels should be designed to exert leverage on hospitals to provide free care at a level commensurate with the value of their tax exemptions. (+info)
Impact of managed MediCal on California family practice programs. (5/118)BACKGROUND: An important source of patients for California's family practice program is MediCal. During the past 5 years, MediCal has established a variety of capitated managed care plans. OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of California's managed MediCal program on the state's 38 family practice training programs. DESIGN: A cross-sectional, retrospective descriptive survey. METHODS: A 3-page, 11-question survey was developed by family practice residency directors and staff from the California Academy of Family Physicians, San Francisco. The 38 family practice programs in existence in California in September 1997 were stratified by type of managed MediCal in their county and by type of sponsoring institution--university, county, community based, staff-model health maintenance organization, or managed care system. RESULTS: Of the 38 family practice programs, 27 responded; 19 of 27 programs participated in managed MediCal. The total number of family health center patients, and the percentage of MediCal patients (48%-60%) at family practice programs was similar when stratified by programs with and without managed MediCal and by type of sponsorship. Most programs reported that they were able to compete effectively, although most also reported increased administrative, nursing, and front office costs. Managed MediCal patients were directly assigned to residents in only 3 of 19 programs. CONCLUSIONS: The introduction of managed MediCal has not adversely affected the number of patients cared for in California's family practice programs. Continued vigilance regarding California family practice programs' involvement in managed MediCal, including collection of accurate data on the number of MediCal patients and the financial and educational implications for California's family practice programs, is warranted.

ADEA annual survey of clinic fees and revenue: 1998-1999 academic year. (6/118)The American Dental Education Association's 1998-1999 Survey of Clinic Fees and Revenue obtained data by which to report, by school, clinic revenue information per undergraduate student. Fifty of the fifty-five U.S. dental schools responded to the survey. The median revenue per third-year student was $6,313. It was $11,680 for fourth-year students. Clinic revenue data was also obtained by type of postdoctoral program. The postdoctoral general dentistry programs had the highest per student clinic revenues, at over $59,000 per AEGD student and almost $35,000 per student of GPR programs. Other areas of the survey provided information regarding clinic fees by type of program, levels of uncompensated care by type of program, clinic revenue by source of payment, and dental school fees as a percent of usual and customary private practice fees.

Primary care office policies regarding care of uninsured adult patients. (7/118)OBJECTIVE: To describe primary care office policies regarding care of uninsured patients. DESIGN: Telephone survey of all adult primary care sites advertising in the area telephone directory. Sites were defined by ownership status, number of physicians, use of physician-extenders, and location. Policies assessed were whether the site was accepting new uninsured patients, billing policies, the availability of free or discounted care, and payment plans. SETTING: Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. PARTICIPANTS: Of the 359 sites identified, 240 (66.9%) responded, representing 794 physicians. Survey respondents included receptionists (40.4%), office managers (36.2%), and physicians (22.9%). RESULTS: While the majority of all sites reported accepting new patients without health insurance (87.5%), policies regarding these patients varied significantly by ownership status and the number of physicians. Sites with 3 or fewer physicians were more likely to accept uninsured patients. Self-owned practices were more likely to require payment at the time of service, and provide discounted care, free care, and payment plans compared with hospital/health system practices or multisite group practices. CONCLUSIONS: Willingness to accept uninsured patients does not always equate to affordable or accessible care. Office policies have the potential to be substantial obstacles to primary care. (+info)
Impact of Medicare denials on noninvasive vascular diagnostic testing. (8/118)PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of Medicare coverage limitations and claim denials on noninvasive vascular diagnostic testing. METHODS: All Medicare claims for noninvasive vascular diagnostic studies from January 1, 1999, to December 31, 1999, were identified from the hospital billing database according to Current Procedural Terminology codes for carotid artery duplex ultrasound scan, venous duplex ultrasound scan, and lower-extremity arterial Doppler scan. Reasons for Medicare denial of payment for these tests were reviewed and a cost analysis was performed. RESULTS: During the 1-year period, there were 1096 noninvasive vascular diagnostic studies performed on Medicare patients. Of these 1096 tests, 176 (16.1%) were denied by Medicare (19.6% of 408 carotid duplex ultrasound scans, 16.8% of 345 venous duplex ultrasound scans, and 11.1% of 343 lower-extremity arterial Doppler scans). Of the noninvasive vascular tests denied by Medicare, an abnormal result was present in 72.5% of carotid duplex ultrasound scans, 32.8% of venous duplex ultrasound scans, and 78.9% of lower-extremity arterial Doppler scans. Overall, 88.1% of all initially denied claims (N = 176) were ultimately reimbursed by Medicare after resubmission, including 77.1% of the 118 claims denied based on compliance rules for "medical necessity." CONCLUSION: Because of coverage limitations, Medicare denials of noninvasive vascular diagnostic tests can lead to potential uncompensated physician and hospital technical fees if denied claims are unrecognized. Vascular laboratories performing these tests need to review compliance with Medicare guidelines. Improvements may need to be made at both the provider and Medicare carrier levels in obtaining reimbursement for appropriately ordered noninvasive vascular diagnostic studies. (+info)

Uncompensated Garnets: A Magnetic Semiconductor.
Yttrium iron garnet (YIG) is a ferrimagnetic oxide, Y3Fe5O12 and a good insulator. When five to ten percent of the Y(3+) is replaced by Ca(2+), an uncompensated state exists. The resulting material has perturbed magnetic properties, semiconducting electrical properties with activation energies from 0.2 to 0.4 eV and resistivities as low as 300 ohms cm at room temperature, and modified optical properties. In the past year the conductivity studies have concentrated on the evolution of a high conduction state m samples that have been annealed in a reducing atmosphere. The reduction process introduces oxygen vacancies which should compensate the hole introduced by Ca(2+). The annealing is also observed to modify significantly the effective exchange constant of the material and the optical activity. These measurements are summarized in this report.*MAGNETIC PROPERTIES

Not Running a Hospital: May 2015
Your interpretation of these results may differ from mine, but heres my take. Most hospitals got penalties in 2015 and a majority have been penalized all three years. Who is getting penalized seems to be shifting - away from a program that primarily targets teaching and safety-net hospitals towards one where the penalties are more broadly distributed, although the gap between safety-net and other hospitals remains sizeable. It is possible that this reflects teaching hospitals and safety-net hospitals improving more rapidly than others, but I suspect that the surgical readmissions, which benefit high quality (i.e. low mortality) hospitals are balancing out the medical readmissions, which, at least for some conditions such as heart failure, tends to favor lower quality (higher mortality) hospitals. Safety-net hospitals are still getting bigger penalties, presumably because they care for more poor patients (who are more likely to come back to the hospital) but the gap has narrowed. This is good ...

Dear Rama, GFP and FITC are a bit different, so you cant really compensate for GFP using FITC. You state that youre looking for +/- regulation of surface markers in the GFP + cells. If youve only got a few GFP positive cells (not enough to set compensation), then it doesnt matter if compensation is set right or not because the datas not there. Youll need thousands of events for MFI stats for upregulation analyses. For frequency (percentage positive) analysis you wont need as many cells but it is important that a) compensation is either set properly if youre using quadrants or b) youre crafty with regions and uncompensated data. Whatever the case, DONT OVERCOMPENSATE the GFP. To eliminate the need to compensate GFP out of FL2, see if you can use a stain like PerCP or APC for detection of the surface marker on a Calibur. GFP overlap in those channels is much less than in FL2, so compensation wont need to be needed too much to see a shift or count positive cells. Frankly, Im not ...

On the 22nd of July the schooner Hester Helena arrived, and five days afterwards we bade adieu to Dorey, without much regret, for in no place which I have visited have I encountered more privations and annoyances.

This long thought-of and much-desired voyage to New Guinea had realized none of my expectations. Instead of being far better than the Aru Islands, it was in almost everything much worse. Instead of producing several of the rarer Paradise birds, I had not even seen one of them, and had not obtained any one superlatively fine bird or insect. I cannot deny, however, that Dorey was very rich in ants. One small black kind was excessively abundant. Almost every shrub and tree was more or less infested with it, ...

U.S. GAO - Medicaid: Managed Care and Individual Hospital Limits for Disproportionate Share Hospital Payments
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payment limits, focusing on: (1) whether state formulas vary in their inclusion of managed care costs and revenues when calculating the maximum amount a specific hospital can receive; and (2) whether such variation is allowed by the Medicaid program; and, if so, (3) Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) officials views on setting a uniform policy in this area.GAO noted that: (1) state formulas for calculating maximum DSH payments to specific hospitals vary in whether or not they include Medicaid managed care costs and revenues; (2) the rules of the Medicaid program allow this variation; (3) HCFA officials told GAO that different state circumstances may warrant different state approaches; and (4) HCFA does not plan to impose new requirements to eliminate this variation.
DSH Cuts and Uncompensated Care Costs Impacting Hospital Reimbursement
Medicare payments to hospitals that serve a disproportionate share of poor people will continue to decrease in fiscal year (FY) 2015. In FY 2015 CMS calculates that the total amount available for the Medicare disproportionate share hospital (DSH) payment will decrease by $1.225 billion compared to the amount available in FY 2014. This decrease should come as no surprise to anyone as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (P.L. 111-148) required these reductions. The thinking was that DHS payment should decrease because as more and more individuals obtain health insurance coverage or are enrolled in an expanded Medicaid, there will be fewer and fewer people who will not be able to pay or have their hospital bills paid for them. And this has been found to be just the case as the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation reported that uncompensated care was reduced by $5.7 billion in 2014. The great majority of this reduction though came in states that had expanded ...

Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) Payments | Health Industry Washington Watch
On April 1, 2014, President Obama signed into law H.R. 4302, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (the Act). The Act includes a one-year Medicare physician fee schedule fix that averts a nearly 24 percent payment cut set for April 1, 2014, but which falls far short of earlier hopes for full repeal of the current sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula. The Act also includes numerous other Medicare payment and policy changes, including skilled nursing facility value-based purchasing provisions, reforms to the physician fee schedule relative valuation process, a new framework for clinical laboratory payments, a variety of changes impacting imaging services, changes in the exceptions for long term care hospitals, and extension of certain expiring provisions. In other areas, the bill includes a one-year delay in the transition to ICD-10, changes to the timetable for Medicaid disproportionate share hospital cuts, and front-loading of the 2024 Medicare sequestration reduction.… Continue ...
Health Law Glossary - Disproportionate Share Hospital
The Medicare program reimburses qualifying hospitals for the services they provide to eligible elderly and disabled patients. The operating costs of inpatient hospital services are reimbursed under a prospective payment system that is based on standardized rates but subject to hospital-specific adjustments. One such adjustment is the DSH adjustment, which requires the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to provide an additional payment to hospitals that serve a significantly disproportionate share of low income patients. (42 U.S.C. § 1395ww(d)(5)(F)(i)(I)). Whether a hospital qualifies for the DSH adjustment, and the amount of the adjustment it receives, depends on the disproportionate patient percentage (DDP) determined by the Secretary under a statutory formula. (42 U.S.C. § 1395ww(d)(5)(F)(v)-(vii)). The DPP is the sum of two fractions. - the Medicaid Fraction (often called the Medicaid Low Income Proxy) and the Social Security Income (SSI) Fraction (often called the ...

This incentive exempts property taxes for eight to 12 years on the assessed improvements that create four or more additional housing units. The latter 12-year option requires at least 20% affordable units.. Multifamily Property Tax Exemption (MPTE) Program Report (PDF). Property Tax Exemption (PTE) Program Outline (PDF).

Tax exemption - Wikipedia
Tax exemption is the reduction or removal of a liability to make a compulsory payment that would otherwise be imposed by a ruling power upon persons, property, income, or transactions. Tax-exempt status may provide complete relief from taxes, reduced rates, or tax on only a portion of items. Examples include exemption of charitable organizations from property taxes and income taxes, veterans, and certain cross-border or multi-jurisdictional scenarios. Tax exemption generally refers to a statutory exception to a general rule rather than the mere absence of taxation in particular circumstances, otherwise known as an exclusion. Tax exemption also refers to removal from taxation of a particular item rather than a deduction. International duty free shopping may be termed tax-free shopping. In tax-free shopping, the goods are permanently taken outside the jurisdiction, thus paying taxes is not necessary. Tax-free shopping is also found in ships, airplanes and other vessels traveling between ...
The Property Tax Exemption for Nonprofits - IssueLab
This paper reviews the existing literature on the property tax exemption for nonprofit organizations and identifies gaps to be addressed in future research. We start by examining justifications and existing eligibility criteria for the property tax exemption, followed by studies of the magnitude of the revenue loss from the exemption. We focus on theoretical and empirical studies of the economic effects of the exemption. We consider the effect of the tax advantage on nonprofit decisions about inputs, outputs and organizational form, decisions to rent or own, location decision, market share, and the effect of the exemption on neighboring property values. Finally, we evaluate research about the use of PILOTs and the implications of their possible expansion. We conclude that future studies need to examine further the magnitude of the revenues forgone, the advantages and disadvantages of PILOTs, and other solutions for distributing more evenly the burden of the exemption. Further studies are also needed to
No injuries, but fire heavily damages new Charities building in St. Joseph | The Catholic Key
Catholic Key Associate Editor. ST. JOSEPH - It was a double blow to Catholic Charities.. On Dec. 27, a fire severely damaged the downtown St. Joseph building, just a few weeks before renovations were complete to turn it into the headquarters of Catholic Charities serving northwest counties in Missouri.. Then the very next day, the man for whom the building was to be named, longtime St. Joseph Catholic Charities director Deacon Martin Goedken, suffered a heart attack and suddenly passed away. (See story on page 12).. Preliminary estimates put the damage to the former UMB bank building at $200,000, but Catholic Charities wont know for weeks if the building can be saved or not, said Deacon Dan Powers, chief executive officer of Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph.. But both Deacon Powers and Bishop James V. Johnston made it clear that the determination of Catholic Charities to expand in St. Joseph to serve more than the 5,000 families it already serves has not waned in the least.. We are ...

Charity Requires Relationship «
This is the dynamic that tends to develop where charity takes place outside of love, and the alienated state that ensues in a society where this form of charity becomes the norm. But the obvious alternative does exist: charity through relationship. The only way to illustrate this form of charity may be with an exemplum. My great-great-uncle Jay Smith owned much of a rural Kansas county in the 1950s, including several housing units. Each of his tenants he knew personally, intimately, as friends. When any of said tenants fell upon hard times, they would ask Jay personally for a reprieve from their rent payment, only so long as needed, after which the tenant would try to make up for missed payments. Jay would always oblige, taking the tenant at his word, knowing the tenant saw Jay as a fellow human being, who suffered the lack of rental income just as surely, if not nearly as sharply, as the tenant himself suffered from being short on money; furthermore, the tenant knew Jay truly felt for the ...

Medicares Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program raises concerns about the effect of payment penalties on safety-net hospitals, which treat a disproportionate share of patients with low socioeconomic status. We examined how the programs current risk-adjustment methods and patient and hospital factors explained differences in readmission rates between safety-net and other hospitals. Patient socioeconomic status explains some of the differences, but unmeasured factors, such as hospital performance, may also play a role. We must evaluate policies that incorporate socioeconomic status to determine whether it would affect penalties while remaining consistent with objectives for delivery system transformation ...

Directory of Social Change - What cover should your charity insurance include?
This covers you against the potential costs of defending legal action against your organisation and may also be known and Legal Protection Insurance. The legal costs relating to claims under other sections of your policy, such as the legal costs around a property damage claim, should be covered by that section. However, Legal Expenses provides a level of cover for legal costs that do not arise from claims under other sections, such as defending a Charity Commission investigation.. These are just a few of the main sections of cover included in CaSE Charity Insurance. Hopefully, by explaining what they are and what they may be known as elsewhere, the process of choosing suitable insurance and comparing two policies, has been made less complicated. When deciding on insurance, the advice of an experienced, specialist charity insurer or broker is invaluable.

Charitable organization - Wikipedia
A charitable organization or a charity is a non-profit organization (NPO) whose primary objectives are philanthropy and social well-being (e.g. charitable, educational, religious, or other activities serving the public interest or common good). The legal definition of a charitable organisation (and of charity) varies between countries and in some instances regions of the country. The regulation, the tax treatment, and the way in which charity law affects charitable organizations also vary. Financial figures (e.g. tax refund, revenue from fundraising, revenue from sale of goods and services or revenue from investment) are important indicators to assess the financial sustainability of a charity, especially to charity evaluators. This information can impact a charitys reputation with donors and societies, and thus the charitys financial gains. Charitable organisations often depend partly on donations from businesses. Such donations to charitable organisations represent a major form of corporate ...

Philadelphia dermatologist recognized for providing free care for uninsured patients
Rosemont, Ill. - The American Academy of Dermatology has named board-certified dermatologist Cory Simpson, MD, PhD, FAAD, as a Patient Care Hero for his work providing free dermatologic care to uninsured patients in Philadelphia.

AvMA - Charities call for clinical negligence fixed costs proposals to be put on hold
Five national charities have written a joint letter to health ministers Jeremy Hunt and Ben Gummer asking them to put on hold their proposals to impose a fixed recoverable costs regime on clinical negligence claims. The charities (National Voices; SANDS; Birth Trauma Association; Meningitis Now; and AvMA) argue that the proposals are premature and a potential threat both to access to justice and patient safety.. They call for an inclusive review of how avoidable costs can be reduced in clinical negligence and the effects that the Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act and other measures are already having on reducing costs and access to justice.. The Department of Health announced their proposals without any prior discussion with external stakeholders such as patients groups and currently intend to press ahead with a consultation on how to implement them at the end of the year, in spite of widespread concerns that have been expressed about their merits or consideration of ...
