COURT RULES THAT REIMBURSEMENT OF MEDICARE BENEFITS WAS NOT PROHIBITED BY THE NEW JERSEY COLLATERAL SOURCE STATUTE
The court recognized that the purposes of the NJCSS are: (1) to prevent double recovery by a tort plaintiff from both a collateral source of benefits (such as a health insurer) and a tort defendant; and (2) to shift the burden of medical costs related to tort injuries, wherever possible, from liability insurers to health insurers, to keep liability insurance premiums down. Neither the New Jersey Supreme Court nor the appellate courts have addressed the issue of whether the reimbursement of Medicare benefits was prohibited by the NJCSS. However, a New Jersey appellate court had previously found that the NJCSS did not apply to conditional Medicaid benefits that were subject to reimbursement. The court found that the New Jersey Supreme Court would likely hold, as it has in the Medicaid context, that the NJCSS does not apply to exclude conditional Medicare benefits from a tort settlement. Therefore, the court held that the reimbursement of Medicare benefits was authorized by the MSP Act and not prohibited by the NJCSS.

The American Spectator : Judges in Wonderland
The problem is that when you put the government in charge of your financial circumstances, you are no longer in charge of your own destiny. The Supreme Court ruled that Social Security was not guaranteed since it was NOT your money. Once the government confiscated the money from your paycheck, it was determined to be a tax. And what you received back was at the discretion of the government. Here is another example of your tax dollars at work: Medicaid takes up $10B of the New Jersey $33B budget. For one-third of our state revenues, we get a program that doctors will not accept. They net about thirteen dollars per one-hundred billed after fees and graft in the system and cost of care. So some doctors are already setting up free clinics and offer the poor charity care. For the $13 per one-hundred they forfeit, they gain in donations. And it takes them off the hook for liability lawsuits that typically cost $25K to settle even if there is no negligence. How many $13 office visits do you have to do to pay one settlement? (1,923 to be exact)

States Hold Off On Insurance Exchanges; Medicare ACOs Confront Challenges
Bloomberg: Health Insurer Tax Gives Nonprofits Advantage, Holtz-Eakin Says Fees that health insurers will be required to pay the U.S. government starting in 2014 will give nonprofits such as Kaiser Permanente a market advantage over corporate competitors, said economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin. The fees — starting at $8 billion and escalating each year based on the industry’s premium revenue — aren’t tax deductible. While nonprofits don’t have an income tax, companies such as UnitedHealth Group Inc. (UNH) would effectively be paying taxes on the fees they’re handing over to the government, said Holtz-Eakin, chief economist of the White House Council of Economic Advisers during the Republican Bush administration from 2001 to 2003 (Wayne, 6/8).
Richard Charles for US Senator Nevada: Did Dean Heller Vote to Cut Medicare?
Okay Karen, you have added to my list of adjectives for Republican strategies (or “strateegery”?) with “diabolical fiendish”… Great post! It is hard for folks to recognize that the whole Grover Norquist affiliation and ongoing allegiance practically guarantees six figure money from Koch Brothers and big oil. Remember, Amodei received bucks from Koch, Exxon and big mining… Has anyone else noticed how the oil industry has started their campaign via TV ads painting themselves as warm and cuddly? Has anyone also noticed that as Washoe County has “battleground” fame now, OUR oil prices are a lot HIGHER than other areas? You see, high oil prices get blamed on a president (the president has the price stamper right there at his desk in the oval office) and the oil companies would add more PROFITS in a big big way with a Romney win. The oil companies humongous profits under Obama are just not enough… ah, greed – it’s alive and well across the fruited plain.
When To Apply For Medicare
There are a few misconceptions about when to apply for medicare benefits. So lets get rid of those misconceptions. The largest determining factor on when you should apply for medicare is age. If you are 65 years or older, you qualify for medicare benefits. Another determining factor in the US at least, is that you must be a US resident for at least 5 consecutive years. So if you were a citizen for 3 years and lost your status as a citizen, then regained it for 2 more years, you probably would not qualify.
Applying for Medicare Part B
So, even though my husband did everything right, he is being denied Medicare Part B because the people at Social Security couldn’t be bothered to process his application until after the deadline had passed. The phone representative called the office that received his application, and told my husband that someone from there should contact him. If no one contacts him, then he is to call Social Security back in 30 days. Meanwhile, he is going without the insurance coverage that he qualifies for.
Medicare Patient PT Supervision is Confusing
Let’s start with a couple fundamentals: first, medical practices that comply with the so called “group practice” exceptions (under both state and federal law) are permitted to provide PT to their own patients. They are more accurately known as the “In Office Ancillary Services Exception,” but most refer to them as described above. These exceptions dictate, for instance, the form of the practice and how much time each physician has to spend practicing through the group. For instance, if the practice does not have at least two of the following, it does not meet the group practice requirements: physician owner; physician W-2 employee. Second, PT falls under both the state and the federal definitions of “designated health service” (DHS). DHS are services that are regulated by the Stark Law and also (at the state level) by the Florida Patient Self Referral Act of 1992 (FPSRA). They are very similar laws, but with some key differences. Where many physicians go wrong is to ensure compliance with federal laws but not state or vice versa.
Fixing Medicare’s Double
P.S. Several readers noted an important qualification to my Social Security discussion in my earlier post. Many experts believe past Social Security surpluses have been used to finance deficits in the rest of the budget and, as a result, Social Security resources have been paying for higher spending or lower revenues elsewhere in government. I agree. My comments in these posts apply only to explicit budgeting decisions, like those in 2010’s health reform or today’s student loan legislation. In that context, Social Security savings cannot be legislatively used to pay for other programs. But they still might have indirect effects. For example, by reducing future unified budget deficits, Social Security savings might weaken future congressional efforts to reduce deficits outside Social Security.
