Important “PECOS” Update…

In 2010, Congress required the use of national provider identifiers for ordering and referring physicians on claims for medical equipment or services from laboratories, imaging providers and suppliers. CMS later issued an interim regulation requiring all physicians who order supplies or refer services, including those from specialists, to be enrolled in PECOS by July 2010, but CMS delayed enforcement of that rule as the agency worked to validate and update enrollment records. Enforcement would have meant that claims for items or services would be rejected unless the ordering or referring physician also was in the enrollment system, not just the physician who provided the care.

Medicare Drug Discounts At Risk If Court Strikes Health Law

Voluntary drug coverage was added to Medicare in 2006, but consumers and advocates have been eager to get rid of the coverage gap. Insurance coverage stops when the beneficiary and the insurer together have spent $2,930 for prescription drugs, excluding monthly premiums. Under the health law, beneficiaries then get a 50 percent discount on brand-name drugs and 14 percent on generics drugs. When the beneficiary alone has spent a total of $4,700, coverage restarts. At that point, the beneficiary picks up 5 percent of the costs.

GOP Doctors Caucus Releases “A Doctors’ Note on Medicare”

5.   During His Entire Presidency, President Obama Has Not Offered a Plan to Save Medicare. For the sixth consecutive year (2007 through 2012), the Medicare Trustees were required by the Social Security Act to issue a Medicare funding warning in their an nual report. While a funding warning has been issued or in place every year the President has been in office, the administration continues to defy its obligation under the law to submit a legislative proposal to Congress in response to warnings issued by the Trustees. The President points to the new health care law as his response to the Medicare trigger, but the Trustees have issued funding warnings in all three reports since the health care law was enacted (2010 through 2012). In the summary of the report the Trustees clearly explain: “The warning directs the President to submit proposed legislation within 15 days of the next budget submission to respond to the warning and requires Congress t o consider the proposal on an expedited basis. To date, elected officials have not enacted legislation responding to these funding warnings which have been included in the five previous reports.”

Medicare Reform and African Americans: Shoring Up Benefits to Protect the Uninsured

With the ongoing debate and the decline in ratings for the healthcare package labeled “Obamacare,” it is clear that everyone is concerned about the results in Medicare reform. No group should be more concerned than African Americans and Hispanics. Despite representing collectively 30 percent of the population, these groups comprise over 50 percent of the estimated 50 million Americans who have no healthcare insurance according to a report by the Commonwealth Fund. The heated debate has provided a number of opportunities for legislation to be implemented to address Medicare reform itself and to provide coverage for underrepresented groups. However, disparities continue to exist. In the Center for Policy Analysis and Research policy report entitled, “Structured Inefficiency: The Impact of Medicare Reform on African Americans,” the authors Maya Rockeymoore, Ph.D and Laura Hawkinson analyzed the impact of the 2003 Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act signed into law by then President George W. Bush. The bill was touted as the most sweeping change for Medicare since the inception of the program itself in 1965. Unfortunately, some of the provisions of the act, in the interest of Medicare reform, proved to be more harm than good, especially for many African Americans and Hispanics. One provision in particular revoked wraparound supports within Medicare that filled in coverage gaps for individuals who fit in the dual eligible or low income category. The report stated that this particular provision would increase costs and decrease benefits for many African American who represent a disproportionate number of low income Medicare recipients. Author and political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson highlighted the long history of this disparity in his commentary in 2009 when he stated, “The huge racial disparity in the number of uninsured has been a sticking point for every Democratic president since Harry Truman proposed the first national healthcare plan in the late 1940s. The number of Blacks and Hispanics without a prayer of obtaining healthcare at any price has always been wildly disproportionate to that of Whites

Accessing Medicare and Medicaid: Times Are Changing

Thank you for reading my blog so carefully. Currently, CMS (Medicare) monitors hospital readmission rates as a quality measure. Research by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) and others show that as many as 1 in 3 Medicare patients who leave the hospital will be readmitted within 30 days of discharge, and that a large portion of these readmissions can be avoided. Under the Affordable Care Act, CMS plans to implement a Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program that will reduce payments beginning in FY 2013 to certain hospitals that have excess readmissions for certain selected conditions. ALF’s are not relevant to this discussion since they are not certified Medicare providers and do not provide any Medicare covered service. The capacity of a skilled nursing facility to care for an admitted Medicare resident without discharging the resident back to the hospital within 30-days will become a critical to securing a reputation for quality with a SNFs most important referal source: hospital discharge planners. Interestingly, discharge rates to hospitals is not currently a quality measure matrix on the Medicare nursing home compare website (www.medicare.gov/nhcompare/), but that matrix is being redesigned and could be amended to include this data. I do not understand the connection private pay admissions and hospital readmission rates. Please elaborate and I hope you find this answer helpful.

Video: Debt Proposal Would Cut Social Security, Taxes, Medicare

Debunking the idea of lower tax rates for rich

This opposition to raising tax rates on the rich follows the same old reasoning that increasing taxes on the rich will reduce growth, increase unemployment and hence decrease tax revenues. Therefore, one questions if this stand on taxes is based upon sound economic analysis or is it just old political and bipartisan rhetoric meant to misinform Americans about the effect of increasing taxes on the rich? A recent major study published in the Journal of Economic Literature, March 2012, by Emmanuel Saez, Joel Slemrod and Seth H. Giertz (SSG), provides very convincing evidence that increasing marginal income tax rate (rate when income exceeds an individual’s tax bracket by an extra dollar) more than the current 35 percent rate for the top 1 percent of income earners will increase federal government revenues.

Tax cut ahead if high court voids health care law

Rushless, why is preexisting conditions denied? This is what will happen. If I am 20 and in good health, I will pay the couple of hundred in penalties, taxes, or whatever obama is calling it today. Let’s say I do it until 50 years old. I then find out I have an illness that will cost tens of thousands to treat. I can now go in to an insurance company after years of not paying my premiums and say I want your best policy. No deductibles/no copays. They now have to cover me. I am treated, cured, then drop it again. Who pays for it? We do. The honest people. The HC plan went from 940 billion to a new estimate of $1.76 trillion and many predict it will go higher. And this does not take in consideration that $80 billion in student loan profits by the federal government was counted in this. The CBO states that obama double counted $500 billion in medicare savings. obama als did not count the $225 billion in reimbursements to the healthcare providers. All which add on to the $1.76 trillion The cornerstone of obama’s healthcare plan is now too expensive and is being cut out. Long term care. CBO estimates that by 2019 that 20 million people will be dropped from their employer paid health insurance because it is cheaper for businesses to pay the penalty instead of healthcare. Millions on Medicare advantage will lose their coverages, which obama said would not happen. Thousands of low income children were dropped from coverage in New York by a union. Many people will be moved to Medicaid instead of Medicare. Can your state afford billions more in costs? There is a panel that will decide whether you get a procedure covered or not. Taxes will be raised over $400 billion for the HC plan. You still think this is good? Any sane person would not agree. Let’s not also forget that there is a good chance that part of this will be ruled unconstitutional and should be. Also, do not forget about separation of church and state, which the HC law goes against by forcing religious HC providers to give.

Is Medicare a Welfare Program, Insurance Entitlement, or Subsidy?

I hope not government collapse, although there is some probability of that for any country. I think the US will make it through, but it needs to be President committed to one term to solve the nations problems. Look at James Polk, a favorite of mine. He promised only one term and he would address the problems of the day: northern border, southern border, Texas, and reduce the import tariffs. He did all because he meant business. He promised one term, and you would think that would have made him a Lame Duck, but because of his personality he got his way through and did the country a great service. He ranks in the top ten by historians. Thanx for coming by so often.

Reid Health Care Bill Funded By Medicare Cuts, Tax on "Cadillac" Plans

“Senator Reid’s proposal has scaled back the ‘Cadillac’ tax on high-valued health insurance plans from the version offered by the Senate Finance Committee, but he’s made up some the difference with a Medicare tax increase on high-wage earners,” said Tax Foundation Senior Economist Gerald Prante, who analyzed both Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) and CBO scores of the bill. “Like the Senate Finance Committee plan and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bill, Reid’s proposal includes cuts to Medicare spending and penalties on individuals who do not purchase insurance and on employers who do not offer insurance for workers. The gross price tag of Reid’s bill is about $200 billion less than the House plan.”

The Obama Tax Plan: High Tax Rates Are Not Just for High

What is much less widely known is that Senator Obama would raise tax rates on low- and middle-income taxpayers as well, lest anyone feel left out. A recent analysis by Alex Brill and Alan Viard demonstrates this quite clearly. In their “city-scape” chart, a dotted blue line shows the marginal tax rates that people face now, and a solid red line shows what those tax rates would be if Obama’s tax plan were enacted. Note that this chart only considers married couples (with two children, a college freshman and a 12-year-old receiving after-school care) with income between $25,000 and $125,000; that is, it leaves out those at the very bottom of the income distribution and those with high incomes. Even though much of Senator Obama’s tax plan is aimed at providing targeted tax relief to those with low and moderate incomes, the methods he has chosen to deliver that relief causes their marginal tax rates to rise. Relatively low income taxpayers, those with incomes below $45,000, would face tax rates upwards of 35 to 40 percent. Middle income taxpayers with incomes in the $105,000 to $125,000 range also see their tax rates rise to upwards of 45 percent. Only a narrow band of couples earning between $85,000 and $100,000 escape the economically damaging effect of the Obama plan’s higher marginal tax rates.

Medicare Running Deficit; Social Security to Follow By 2016

The trustees of Social Security and Medicare put out their annual report this week on the financial status of the two government programs. Medicare will be in the red this year, paying out more in benefits than it receives in tax revenue. (All Americans pay a 2.9% Medicare tax on their wages, half remitted by the employer and the other half withheld from the employee’s paycheck.) Social Security is still in the black but is expected to enter the red in 2016. (Americans pay a 12.4% Social Security tax on their wages up to an inflation-adjusted cap each year, again half remitted by employer and half withheld from paychecks.)

Coming soon: new Medicare Tax on Net Investment Income for Estates and Trusts

For estates and trusts, §1411(a)(2)(A) refers to “undistributed net investment income”, but does not define this term.  It seems logical to assume that the same Income Distribution Deduction (IDD) concept that reduces an estate or trust’s taxable income would apply here and reduce an estate or trust’s net investment income. One must assume that in general, simple trusts and complex trusts making adequate distributions will pass-through all of their undistributed net investment income.

Don’t Believe the Actuaries, Medicare Is Far From Safe

In 2011, Medicare covered 48.7 million Americans — and cost nearly $550 billion. There’s now a $280-billion gap between the premiums and taxes the program takes in and the benefits it pays out. Since the last presidential election, the amount by which benefit payments exceed dedicated tax collections has nearly quadrupled. This fiscal trend is unsustainable. Medicare is inadequately financed over the next ten years, according to the Trustees. And with the “Baby Boom” generation starting to retire, there is even more pressure on Medicare’s costs.

Stock Brokers’ Home: Take Advantage Of These Tax Deductions Before They Expire

In a January 2011 article we addressed the changes to the gift and estate tax provisions contained in the Tax Relief Act. This month we cover some of the new law’s personal income tax planning opportunities. Income and Capital Gains Tax Rates. The current federal income tax rates will be retained for two years (2011 and 2012), with a top rate of 35% on ordinary income and 15% on qualified dividends and long-term capital gains. Social Security Tax Break. For the first two months of 2012, employees and self-employed workers will continue to receive a reduction of two percentage points in Social Security payroll tax, bringing the rate down from 6.2% to 4.2% for employees and from 12.4% to 10.4% for the self-employed on a maximum earned income of $106,800. The Medicare tax rate remains the same: 1.45% for employees and 2.9% for the self-employed on all earned income. The income-tax deduction for the self-employed will be increased to 59.6% of the Social Security tax, and 50% of the Medicare tax. Alternative Minimum Tax. A two-year Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) “patch” for 2010 and 2011 will keep the AMT exemption near current levels and allow personal credits to offset AMT. Without the patch, an estimated 21 million additional taxpayers would have owed AMT for 2010. Tax Credits. Key tax credits that benefitted working families and that were enacted or expanded in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 were retained by the Tax Relief Act. Specifically, the new law extends, for two years, the $1,000 child tax credit and maintains its expanded refundability. The refundable credit equals 15% of earned income in excess of $3,000. The Tax Relief Act also extended rules expanding the earned-income credit for larger families and married couples and extended for two years the higher education tax credit (the “American Opportunity” credit) and its partial refundability. Depreciation. Businesses can write off 100% of their equipment and machinery purchases, effective for property placed in service from September 9, 2010, through December 31, 2011. For property placed in service in 2012, the new law provides for 50% additional first-year depreciation. Tax Deductions. Many of the “traditional” tax extenders are extended for two years, retroactively to 2010 and through the end of 2011. Among many other provisions, the Tax Relief Act extends (a) the election to take an itemized deduction for state and local general sales taxes in lieu of the itemized deduction for state and local income taxes; (b) the $250 above-the-line deduction for certain expenses of elementary and secondary school teachers; and (c) the above-the-line deduction for higher education expenses. The Tax Relief Act also retroactively reinstates, for 2010 and 2011, the exclusion from gross income of up to $100,000 of qualified charitable distributions directly from a regular IRA or Roth IRA, provided the taxpayer is at least 70½ years old. A qualified distribution made in January 2011 can be treated as made in 2010 for purposes of the $100,000 limitation and the required minimum distribution (RMD) for 2010. A FEW TIPS Give to Charity. You don’t have to meet a threshold to deduct your charitable donations. As long as you give to an IRS-qualified organization within the tax year, you usually can claim it as an itemized deduction for the full amount that you give. Adjust Your Withholding Rate. Make sure you are having only the amount you need withheld from your paycheck. If you over-withhold federal taxes, you’ll get a big refund, but you’ve given up your hard-earned dollars for the other 364 days of the year. On the other hand, do not under-withhold, or you’ll end up owing the IRS at filing time. Evaluate Educational Accounts for Kids. College costs increase every year, but tax-advantaged savings accounts can help. The key is determining which plan best suits your needs. For example, every state offers a 529 plan, and, although plan contributions are not tax-deductible, the earnings are not taxed. In addition, when you take out funds to pay for eligible expenses, the distributions are also tax-free. Start a Business. Whether you operate your own business as your main source of income or as a sideline venture, tax laws offer several ways to save. As described above, the tax deduction for equipment and other business-related tools and machinery has been increased. Other popular business tax breaks, such as writing off new business startup costs, and many home office expense deductions also still apply.

6 Features of CMS’s Redesigned Medicare Summary Notice

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

In light of ongoing healthcare reform there is a push for clarity, as several of our stories illustrate this week. Medicare claims forms have been redesigned so that beneficiaries and their caregivers can better understand them, check for important facts and potential fraud. The subject of fraud is particularly timely given the story that has been circulating for the last week involving the arrest of a physician, the office manager of his medical practice, and five owners of home health agencies. They’ve been charged with allegedly participating in a nearly $375 million healthcare fraud scheme involving fraudulent claims for home health services.

CMS announces new Medicare Summary Notice (sometimes referred to as an Explanation of Benefits)

This MSN redesign is part of a new initiative, “Your Medicare Information: Clearer, Simpler, At Your Fingertips,” which aims to make Medicare information clearer, more accessible, and easier for beneficiaries and their caregivers to understand. CMS will take additional actions this year to make information about benefits, providers, and claims more accessible and easier to understand for seniors and people with disabilities who have Medicare. This MSN redesign reflects more than 18 months of research and feedback from beneficiaries to provide enhanced customer service and respond to suggestions and input.

New Medicare Summary Notice Designed to Help Fight Fraud

“Consumer protection starts with making sure consumers not only get timely and accurate information, but that they understand what services they’re receiving from Medicare,” said Acting Administrator Marilyn Tavenner.  “The new Medicare Summary Notice empowers Medicare’s seniors and people with disabilities.  The statement is easier to understand and navigate, and makes clear what information to check and how to report potential fraud.  The new MSN also makes it easier for people with Medicare to understand their benefits and file appeals if a claim is denied.”

If you get a Medicare-covered service, you’ll  get a Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) in the mail every 3 months. The notice shows  all your services or supplies that providers and suppliers billed to Medicare  during the 3-month period, what Medicare paid, and what you may owe the  provider.

InsureBlog: Obamacare, SCOTUS and Medicare Part D

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

TWO YEARS OF RUIN by SS&SSObamacare may be scrapped in part or completely if SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the U.S.) rules against the law as a violation of the Constitution. If that happens, there is speculation that the cost of medication for Medicare Part D  beneficiaries might increase.   Obamacare provides “the necessary legal framework” for drug companies to slash brand-name drug prices by half for seniors and people with disabilities when they enter a coverage gap in their Medicare drug plans, said Matthew Bennett, a spokesman for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.  Eventually the discounts grow so that the gap, known as the doughnut hole, is closed by 2020.  But if (Obamacare) goes, the discounts may go, too. Part of Obamacare requires pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide a 50% discount on brand-name prescriptions filled in the Medicare Part D coverage gap beginning in 2011 and begins phasing-in federal subsidies for generic prescriptions filled in the Medicare Part D coverage gap. If Obamacare is struck down the drug companies are no longer required by law to discount their medication. If it isn’t obvious, the pharmaceutical companies are not reducing the price of the drugs out of the goodness of their heart under Obamacare. All Obamacare did was to create a cost shift to others not in Medicare that will pay a higher price than they would have without Obamacare. Another offshoot of the mandated discount is increasing the price of some medications which puts them in a higher tier under a drug formulary. In other words, they mark the drugs up so they can mark them down. Voluntary drug coverage was added to Medicare in 2006, but consumers and advocates have been eager to get rid of the coverage gap. Insurance coverage stops when the beneficiary and the insurer together have spent $2,930 for prescription drugs, excluding monthly premiums. Under Obamacare, beneficiaries then get a 50 percent discount on brand-name drugs and 14 percent on generics drugs. When the beneficiary alone has spent a total of $4,700, coverage restarts. At that point the drug plan picks up 95 percent of the cost. How is Medicare Part D voluntary if the government assesses a late enrollment penalty (LEP) if you do not buy a Part D when first eligible? So while the discounts, and closing the donut hole may go away if Obamacare is overruled, the truth is the discounts were more smoke and mirrors than anything . . . kind of like political promises. Drug companies could try to offer the discounts on their own but that effort could run afoul of federal antitrust laws that generally prohibit businesses from agreeing together to set prices for their products.  An individual drug company could offer Part D members coverage gap discounts, but it would have to steer clear of anti-fraud laws that ban a company from giving something of value to persuade beneficiaries to use its products. Isn’t it nice when the government interferes with free trade? For all the political promises, lies and distortions, Obamacare is not a good law and Medicare Part D is more illusion than actual insurance.

Learn A Lot More Regarding Mutual Of Omaha Medicare Supplemental Insurance

As any senior knows, Medicare is not a full medical coverage insurance. The truth is it requires using several parts in the event the person does wish to have full coverage. The plans are available in four various parts; this also makes it simple for people to customize these to their own needs. However, even with all the plan choices, you can still find coverage gaps that may leave any person owing a good deal of money in medical bills and prescription expenses. This is why Medicare supplement plans are available through various private insurance companies. These supplements will make sure your healthcare is fully covered, but there are several supplements to select from. Mutual of Omaha is a popular insurance provider that offers Medicare supplements that one could consider. In today’s environment, you need additional information than ever about the companies you do business with. How strong are they? Will they be there to cover promised benefits? Having more than a century in business, you can rely on Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company for that strength, stability and security that are a lot more important in these complicated times. To find out if ever the Mutual of Omaha supplements would be good for you, and then you’ll need to understand a little more about what the insurance companies has to offer. Following are the options for Medicare supplements that you could pick from Mutual of Omaha including Medicare Part D coverage options. The Mutual of Omaha insurance company delivers a kind of policy called Medigap. It is only available in addition to Medicare, and it’s really a way to complete the gaps that Medicare will not cover. If you select Medigap plans through Mutual of Omaha, you should know what basics can come with any plan first. Any of the Medigap plans includes coinsurance coverage at hospital stays not to mention coverage for prolonged hospital stays, copayment coverage for prescribed medicines and coverage for up to three pints of blood should you need a transfusion – visit www.mutualofomaha.com for additional information.

Keep in mind that Mutual of Omaha offers Medicare supplements in just about every state of America however their most favored is Medicare Part F. You will need to see whether your state is available before you can choose the plans to begin with. Medicare is usually government issued insurance for the elderly. While the insurance covers a great deal, it does not cover everything. This could leave someone with a fixed income with a big medical bill. Mutual of Omaha offers Medicare supplements that can help complete those gaps.

Practical Insights: Dealing with Medicare Part B and COBRA Coverage

Generally, the Socal Security Act provides that individuals may enroll in Medicare Part B (which covers doctors visits and other outpatient services) when they reach age 65. If they fail to do so during a seven-month initial enrollment period surrounding their 65th birthday, they can enroll during an annual “general enrollment” period that occurs each January 1- March 31, with coverage becoming effective the following July1, though they will incur a penalty in the form of permanently higher Part B premiums (10% increase for each year of available coverage that is foregone). However, actively employed individuals who have employer-provided health coverage can postpone signing up for Medicare Part B until after age 65. When they lose the employer-provided coverage or terminate employment, whichever happens first, they are then provided an eight-month “special enrollment period” (“SEP”) during which they can sign up for Medicare effective immediately and without penalty.

Surviving the Medicare Part D Coverage Gap: The Shrinking Donut Hole in the Prescription Drug Plan

The coverage gap in the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, known popularly as the Medicare "donut hole" or "doughnut hole," is expected to affect over one million seniors in 2010, according to a House of Representatives press release. The good news is, this coverage gap, inside which enrollees must pay for prescription medications fully out of pocket, is slated to be reduced and even, by the year 2020, completely eliminated due to the passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (otherwise known as the "health reform bill.") Meanwhile, seniors participating in this prescription drug plan (PDP) who fall into the donut hole must weather the storm.

Medicare Part D Proves That Competition Lowers Health Care Spending

Few patients switching plans. Another critique of competition is that a general reluctance to switch plans “reflects the large number of plan choices available combined with the costs in terms of time and energy of doing research and of actually making a switch.” This claim, taken from behavioral economics, does not negate a person’s price sensitivity. Experience with the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan (FEHBP) shows that about 5 percent of patients switch plans each year. This reluctance to switch reflects well-documented satisfaction with plan choices. This only proves that people make decisions based on many factors, including how much they like their plans.

Should you have a level policy, then the coverage is level from the beginning of the policy. It implies if someone applies for $80,000 term life insurance no exam and gets approval, his entire coverage starts immediately. If he dies the following day, the full amount is payable to the recipient. When seniors sign up for life insurance no exam, they could get an answer in as quickly as the same day. Answers from underwriting usually average three days. Ensure that you inquire about the entire process of underwriting if you do need a very fast answer. Some companies that offer life insurance no exam to seniors can still order doctor’s medical records. Question them whenever they delay the procedure.

Another super great Health Assessment tool is the one for Alcohol.  Way too many people drink far too much, luckily I am not one of them anymore but boy did I used to be! I used to be a huge binge drinker and sadly, this is common for so many people, maybe even you who is reading this? It seems like a stage most of us will go through, from our teenage years to say our 30’s but I actually know that for a huge percentage, the binge drinking doesn’t really stop.  Most people are now drinking 3-4 glasses of wine each night of the week, to cope with the stress of life.  It really worries me so I urge you to take the Alcohol unit counter tool here just so you know if you are drinking an ok amount or it’s something that is going to cause you health problems in the future.

2012 Bupa Great Manchester Run: Patrick Makau vs Haile Gebrselassie, by Alfons Juck, note by Larry Eder

EUGENE (USA): World champion Jenny Simpson is confirmed for the 38th Prefontaine Classic in the 1500 m. Several others will contest Simpson for example Americans Anna Pierce and Shannon Rowbury. A Canadian with impressive experience, Sheila Reid will enter the contest. An 18-year-old from Ethiopia, Tizita Bogale, will likely keep the race honest. She has a best of 4:03.94 and won the World Junior Championships gold in 2010 at age 16. Europe will be represented by Jemma Simpson of Great Britain and Lidia Chojecka from Poland. The men’s 800 m features great examples of the extremes of experience and youth, both from America and beyond. Abubaker Kaki of Sudan earned the silver medal at last year’s World Championships as a 22-year-old. Four other finalists from Daegu will be on hand for a pre-London reunion. The most decorated of the group is bronze medalist Yuriy Borzakovskiy of Russia, the 2004 olympic winner. Perhaps the most intriguing of the entrants is the youngest, 18-year-old Mohamed Aman of Ethiopia. The two other Daegu finalists, Nick Symmonds of the U.S. and Adam Kszczot of Poland, were ranked No. 6 and No. 7, respectively by T&FN last year. Also to note the participation of 2009 World Champion Mbulaeni Mulaudzi of South Africa. The women’s 800 meters brings together an elite field led by two world-class Americans who are the fastest since the turn of the century in Alysia Montano and Maggie Vessey.

Medicare, Hospice & Private At Home Nursing In Florida, Who Pays For What?

Utilizing private at home senior care is a perfect complement to the range of services that are offered through Hospice or Medicare. Depending on what stage when a patient is under Hospice care, 24-hour service is not always provided. In such instances unless you or a family member is available around the Miami, Broward, Dade, or Palm Beach areas, private home care would be needed. Who in your family will be available to keep an eye on your elder when hospice is not there and Medicare cannot provide coverage?

Hospices Often Violate Medicare Guidelines: Some Agencies Admit Non

Often those violations are not deliberate. Physicians are the only professionals allowed to "diagnose" what will likely cause the demise of the patient. Diseases like Down’s Syndrome, spina bifida and heart and lung disease may not be the primary cause of the patient’s death, but physicial decline may still indicate the patient is terminal. These patients certainly deserve the same end-of-life care as any other individual, but their death may be caused by pneumonia, sepsis or a multi-system breakdown. Their lifelong disease has made them more vulnerable to the types of illnesses that others might survive. By educating physicians as to the correct way to label the likely cause of death for these patients, Medicare will be able to provide payment for those who desperately need this specialized care.

Is hospice a viable readmission alternative for Medicare patients?

A high rate of live discharges suggests that some hospices may be seeking out Medicare patients who do not meet hospice eligibility requirements and discharging them when they reach Medicare’s length of stay cap. The report warns that hospices admitting patients before they meet eligibility requirements could be subject to investigation by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). With that said, hospices that market themselves as a readmission alternative could be open for investigation if they accept ineligible patients.

Relaxation for hospice caregivers: How can I take a vacation?

While you long for a vacation or even a short period of respite, no doubt you’ve already stated several reasons why this is not possible. Caregiver concerns often include: “No one can take care of my loved one like I can”; “I feel guilty leaving to have a good time while my loved one is so sick”; and “If I’m not here when something happened, I couldn’t live with myself”. Feelings of guilt, almost universally experienced by dedicated caregivers, may increase and may cause anxiety when thinking about being separated from your loved one.

How Medicare covers hospice care

Hospice is a program of care and support for people who are terminally ill. The focus is on comfort, not on curing an illness. Hospice is intended to help people who are terminally ill live comfortably. If you qualify for Medicare’s hospice benefit, you’ll have a specially trained team and support staff available to help you and your family deal with your illness. You and your family members are the most important part of the team. Your team may also include doctors, nurses, counselors, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, hospice aides, and homemakers. The hospice team provides care for the whole person. That includes his or her physical, emotional, and social needs. Hospice services are generally provided in the home and may include physical care, counseling, drugs, and medical equipment and supplies for the terminal illness, plus any related conditions. Your regular doctor or a nurse practitioner can also be part of your team, to supervise your care. Who’s eligible for Medicare-covered hospice services? You have to meet several conditions. For one, you must be eligible for Medicare Part A, which is hospital insurance. Also, your doctor and the hospice medical director must certify that you’re terminally ill and have six months or less to live, if your illness runs its normal course. You have to sign a statement choosing hospice care instead of other Medicare-covered benefits to treat your terminal illness. (Medicare will still pay for covered benefits for any health problems that aren’t related to your terminal illness.) And you must get care from a Medicare-approved hospice program. If you qualify, your doctor and the hospice team will work with you and your family to set up a plan of care that meets your needs. A hospice doctor and nurse will be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week to give you and your family support and care when you need it. Medicare’s hospice benefit allows you and your family to stay together in the comfort of your home unless you need care in an inpatient facility. Keep in mind that you have the right to stop hospice care at any time. Medicare will pay for a one-time-only consultation with a hospice medical director or hospice doctor to discuss your care options and how to manage your pain and symptoms. After that, Medicare covers doctor and nurse services, equipment such as wheelchairs or walkers, supplies such as bandages and catheters, drugs to control pain or other symptoms, hospice aide and homemaker services, physical and occupational therapy, and social-worker services. Medicare also covers dietary counseling, grief and loss counseling for you and your family, short-term inpatient care for pain and symptom management, and short-term respite care. Respite care is designed to help the caregiver for a terminally person. Often a spouse or other family member becomes the caregiver, and at some point they may need a rest. You can get inpatient respite care in a Medicare-approved facility (such as a hospice inpatient facility, hospital, or nursing home) if your caregiver needs a rest. You can stay up to five days each time. You can get respite care more than once, but it can only be provided on an occasional basis. How much do you pay for hospice under Medicare? There’s no deductible. You’ll pay no more than $5 for each prescription drug and similar products for pain relief and symptom control. If you get inpatient respite care, you pay five percent of the Medicare-approved amount. For example, if Medicare pays $100 per day for inpatient respite care, you’ll pay $5 per day.

North Carolina Medical Society

PQRS, formally known as Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI), generates easy revenue for medical practices by allowing physicians to select and report on a measures group from the 17 CMS-approved groups offered by Covisint DocSite. Inquire about reporting for individual measures if a measure group is not included in the approved groups. Participants can also enter, submit and collect clinical data for 30 Medicare Part B Fee-For-Service (FFS) patients instead of 50 percent of physician patients. This is a HIPAA-compliant database that allows for automated data submission. There is no cost to register or to enter data.

Medicare Costs and Financial Retirement Planning: Preserve Retirement Savings with Medicare Education and Planning

It should be noted that private insurance policies under Medicare Advantage plans are sometime called "Medicare Part C." Though regulated by the federal government, these are not under Medicare but are the private insurance options for services typically covered under Medical Part A and B. Medicare benefits under Medicare Part A or Part B are no longer available if private medical insurance is secured by an otherwise eligible beneficiary. Additionally, Medigap is a term used to describe supplemental private medical insurance to cover "gap" services not covered by Part A, Part B, or Part D.

The Fiscal Summit Counter

“But the point about business is, I often give talks to the business community and they’re as right wing in Australia as they are here and I’ve given talks in the Netherlands where they are as right wing as they are in South Africa and elsewhere and its more to Warren’s point. I ask them the question, they’re all in suits and what have you, and I say where are the unemployed now? And its a question they’d never really asked I don’t think and eventually I get them to admit or understand that the unemployed are all ready in the public sector. Now you are having debates in Congress somewhere down there or up there, I’m not sure of the direction, about extending unemployment benefits. Well, that’s a recognition, and you’ll obviously do that again, given the skull and the crosses I would imagine, but in Australia we have the unemployment benefits guaranteed. But that tells you where the unemployed are, they’re in the public sector. So then I say to the assembled businessmen, typically men, I say, “Well what are they doing in the public sector?” And I can get them to chant, “Nothing.” And then I say, “Well are you happy about that?” And I can get them to say, “No. The bastards.” [Laughter]

Tips For Medicare Recipients Who Live With Asthma

Though the specific causes of asthma are not yet known, we do know what some of the exacerbating agents are. One undisputed contributor to asthma is found in your genes. If you have relatives suffering from asthma, chances are much higher that you may also come down with asthma. How old you are is also a factor. As we age, our immunity grows weaker, and then airborne irritants can prompt your immune system to overreact. For some people, this causes moderate allergies which can easily be managed by Claritin or Fexofenadine. For other individuals, their symptoms worsen into full-blown asthma. Another apparent reason why many people deal with this disease is everyday pollution. In cities, air pollution is a considerable factor that irritates symptoms of asthma.

Medicare Supplemental Insurance, Medicare Supplements, Medigap

Medicare Part A covers hospitalization, some skilled nursing facility charges, some home health care, and hospice.  You pay payroll taxes that go directly to the Part A fund and those tax revenues currently cover all Part A expenditures. In other words, the Part A budget is balanced.   You are not required to pay anything for Part A unless you did not pay 40 quarters of payroll taxes or acquire this right through a spousal benefit.

2012 Medicare Trustees Annual Report :Gould & Lamb

The Medicare program has two components. Hospital Insurance (HI) and Supplementary Medical Insurance (SMI).  HI, otherwise known as Medicare Part A, helps pay for hospital, home health, skilled nursing facility, and hospice care for the aged and disabled. SMI consists of Medicare Part B and Part D. Part B helps pay for physician, outpatient hospital, home health, and other services for the aged and disabled who have voluntarily enrolled. Part D provides subsidized access to drug insurance coverage on a voluntary basis for all beneficiaries and premium and cost-sharing subsidies for low-income enrollees. Medicare also has a Part C, which serves as an alternative to traditional Part A and Part B coverage. Under this option, beneficiaries can choose to enroll in and receive care from private “Medicare Advantage” and certain other health insurance plans that contract with Medicare. These plans receive prospective, capitated payments for such beneficiaries from the HI and SMI Part B trust fund accounts.
