New dental scheme for children This is the final year of the Medicare Teen Dental Plan. On 1 January 2014, the plan will be replaced with a new children’s dental scheme—Grow Up Smiling. Eligibility for the new scheme will be the same as the Medicare Teen Dental Plan; however, the new scheme will be available to children aged between two and 17 years.

Many Kids on Medicaid Don’t See a Dentist

Even though this number has improved by 16% between 2002 and 2007, there are still many children who cannot access care due to the loss of school-based dental education programs, state budget cuts, low reimbursement rates that prevent providers from accepting Medicaid patients, and the overall lack of Medicaid dollars going toward dental care. Although the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has put goals in place for preventive services, the only long-lasting solution will be an increased investment in dental care.

Take Charge Of Your Smile With Dental Implants

Whether you have lost a tooth due to disease or injury, a missing tooth can take away from your overall quality of life. To restore your smile, your dentist in Annapolis can now replace your missing tooth with a dental implant, which is a synthetic structure that is placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. With dental implants, you can experience a permanently restored smile and renewed confidence. Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, but with a consultation with your Annapolis dentist, you can determine the best treatment option available for the restoration of your smile when teeth are missing.

Why Kids Need Affordable Dental Insurance

The consequences of the gap in access to dental care, are immense. In 2012, a study was performed assessing the impact of untreated dental issues has on how low-income kids do in school. The results were damning. Kids who had suffered from dental related pain in the past six months, were four times as likely to perform below average in school. That’s just the effect a toothache can have on school performance. It’s easy to imagine that if dental problems can have that profound of an effect on kid’s school performance, that it could easily infiltrate other areas of life as well. Having constant, nagging pain in your mouth, reduces the quality of your life.

Labor plugs the gap in dental health care

Chris Weir is right. This is a huge step back to the dark ages of dental treatment for poor and sick people. They should call this the Plibersek tooth extraction plan. The Chronic Disease scheme provided poor, sick and elderly people with $4,000 of non-cosmetic dental treatment by the dentist of their choice every two years, as long as they were on a GP health care plan and the dental treatment was assessed as needed to improve their overall health. That meant, for the first time ever in Australia, poor people were getting root canals, crowns, implants and other procedures that Plibersek describes as "over-servicing". Now those people are heading back to the public dental hospital and clinics to get their aching teeth pulled out and sent home. Public dental is about churning through waiting rooms of people in pain – ie: pulling teeth out. Public dental does not do root canal (saving teeth) or crowns & implants (replacing teeth). And there was a lot of talk yesterday about prevention. There is $10.5M over 6 years in this package for prevention, so that’s a few more posters and pamphlets.

Each private plan would have had to offer a benefit package that covered at least the actuarial equivalent of the benefit package provided by the traditional fee-for-service Medicare. Medicare’s contribution (or “premium support”) to the full premium for any of these choices, including traditional Medicare, would have been equal to the “second-least-expensive approved plan or fee-for-service Medicare” in the beneficiary’s county, whichever was least expensive. That premium support payment would have been adjusted upward for the poor and the sick and downward for the wealthy.

Increasing income tax the right choice for a sustainable NDIS

I dont trust the big business media they may have a conflict of interest. Globalisation part of requirements to sell off government income generating assets so big business could enjoy the profits not taxpayer. I think we need to hear more of what positives this hung parliament has done but we hear little or nothing who is framing the debate. The easy way the Liberal country party way is to govern do little or nothing and if any problems blame Labor or the unions or unemployed or single parents. Mr Abbott was until very recently going to have the surplus back in first term that is how bad the deficit was now because of the down turn in the mining sector the negative effect on the continuing high dollar the deficit could take 10years to bring back to surplus. How many of us have had a morgage for 30years plus other debts. We are wealthy still and will be for a long time to come it we are being harrassed with doom and gloom where there is none. I believe that ALL Political PARTIES need to hear that the NDIS should go through no excuses services have been dismantled run down over the years enough is enough.

Medicare Must Preserve Patient Access to the Physician of their Choice

Neurosurgeons are convinced that the key to preserving our Medicare patients’ access to quality medical care is to overhaul the flawed Medicare payment system. An essential element of payment reform includes allowing patients and physicians to voluntarily enter into arrangements known as private contracts. Ultimately, private contracting is an important way to ensure that our patients can maintain control over their own medical decisions. While the government may have the right to determine what it will pay toward medical care, it does not have the right to determine the value of that medical care. This value determination should ultimately be made by the individual patient, and by allowing patients to contract with the physicians of their choice for any amount not covered by Medicare, patients will have the power to exercise this value judgment.

Is Medicare Out of the Woods?

The Medicare Trustees have just released their annual report and, according to today’s Wall Street Journal, “Medicare Trustees’ Report Eases Concerns on Funding”.  In 2012 Medicare expenses, most of which are paid out of general government tax revenue, amounted to $574 billion, up 4.6% from 2011.  Although this is a smaller annual increase than usual, it still represents a rate of growth which is much too fast to be sustainable over the long run.  After all, the economy (i.e. GDP) is only growing at a rate of 2% per year and so a rate of 4.6% for Medicare is more than twice as fast as the economy is growing.  Such a rapid rate of growth for Medicare has been going on for many years and simply cannot be continued much longer. The problem is that Medicare is an open ended entitlement program which pays whatever is needed by its currently 50.7 million retired enrollees, whose number is also increasing rapidly.  The only way that Medicare can possibly survive indefinitely is to be turned into a defined contribution program whereby each enrollee’s annual support is limited to a fixed amount.  Of course, this places responsibility on each enrollee to pay attention to the cost of her/his own medical care.  This is a big change from the present system of government responsibility and so it will take a major change of thinking to make such a big switchover.  But a new system can be phased in over time so that everyone can get used to it. We really only have two choices.  We can postpone any action along these lines until the cost of the current system is so outlandish that the government is given the authority to severely ration healthcare for senior citizens.  The alternative is to set up, and phase in, a new system so that every enrollee bears responsibility for the cost of her/his own care.  Right now we have the luxury of deciding which of these two systems we want to adopt.  But if we put off the choice much longer, it will be forced upon us by financial necessity.

Choice Of Rep. Ryan Puts His Plan To Overhaul Medicare At Center Of Campaign

The Wall Street Journal: Democrats, GOP Spar Over Ryan On Shows Republicans and Democrats sparred Sunday over Mitt Romney’s choice of Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) as his running mate, seizing on his proposals in Congress to highlight differences between the parties over taxes, spending and entitlement programs. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who lost to President Barack Obama, a Democrat, in the 2008 presidential election, said Mr. Ryan understands that “the most compelling challenges this nation faces obviously are jobs and the economy.” … Other Republicans, however, were more careful to avoid conflating the particulars of Rep. Ryan’s budget proposals with Mr. Romney’s campaign. “Mitt Romney appreciates and admires the work and the ideas that Paul Ryan has done,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” But while celebrating Rep. Ryan’s bold efforts, he noted that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee can offer his own proposals (Entous and Peterson, 8/12).

Does Medicare provide too many choices for seniors?

Research, more scientific than mine, confirms my belief. Once seniors pick a plan—based on coverage, customer service, friendly salespeople, price, or whatever—they tend to stick with it even though they might be able to find a cheaper one if they went shopping. Medicare beneficiaries, it seems, are like bank customers. Once people pick a bank, they tend to stay put despite the heavy bank advertising enticing them to switch. A study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, a private, nonprofit research organization, found that if seniors with Medicare drug plans stayed in a plan too long, they could end up paying premiums that were ten percent higher than had they had switched to a new plan.

Medicare Advantage Fact Sheet

Since 2006, Medicare has paid plans under a bidding process.  Plans submit “bids” based on estimated costs per enrollee for services covered under Medicare Parts A and B; all bids that meet the necessary requirements are accepted.  The bids are compared to benchmark amounts that are set by a formula established in statute and vary by county (or region in the case of regional PPOs).  The benchmarks are the maximum amount Medicare will pay a plan in a given area. If a plan’s bid is higher than the benchmark, enrollees pay the difference between the benchmark and the bid in the form of a monthly premium, in addition to the Medicare Part B premium.  If the bid is lower than the benchmark, the plan and Medicare split the difference between the bid and the benchmark; the plan’s share is known as a “rebate,” which must be used to provide supplemental benefits to enrollees.  Medicare payments to plans are then adjusted based on enrollees’ risk profiles.

Yes! So how does this relate to Medicare’s coverage? There is a general rule of thumb that is called the “80/20 rule.” Outside of some of the preventative items like mammograms, colorectal screenings, and some psychiatric care, Medicare covers the first 80 percent of medical bills, leaving you to cover the last 20 percent. Medicare will also cover certain medically-necessary pieces of equipment like seat lift mechanisms and diabetic shoes (fitted by a specialist, of course). It doesn’t seem so bad at first, especially if you’re a healthy individual, but if something happens that requires you to need urgent medical care or even an operation, you may have to spend tens- to hundreds-of-thousands of dollars. A June 2011 report from the Kaiser Family Foundation predicted that by the year 2020 the median out-of-pocket spending for seniors with Medicare is projected to reach 26 percent of all income, with the most money being spent in the last five years of their life. This is why supplemental Medicare insurance is a necessity for every senior. Not only do you really need Medicare supplemental insurance, you need it before something happens to you, and you likely won’t use it much until the last 5 years of life. So two points to keep in mind 1) If you wait until a procedure is needed or something unexpected happens to you, you’ve waited too long, and 2) Don’t make the mistake of cancelling your Medicare supplement policy because you’ve’ paid in more than you use. It’s health insurance and in this case it works best if it’s held to its natural end point.

FAQ: Seniors May See Changes in Medigap Policies

Advocacy groups like the Medicare Rights Center oppose restricting Medigap plans, saying it would simply shift more costs from the government to elderly and low-income people who can least afford it. “Some in government feel people in Medicare don’t have enough ‘skin in the game,’” says Ilene Stein, federal policy director for the center. In fact, she says, people on Medicare already pay 15 percent of their incomes for health care, well above the level paid by non-Medicare households. While the proposals would cap maximum annual spending per enrollee to $5,500 or $7,500, “that’s a lot of money for someone making $22,000,” the median household income for those on Medicare, she says.

Medigap Reforms: Potential Effects of Benefit Restrictions on Medicare Spending and Beneficiary Costs

The analysis finds that most Medicare beneficiaries with Medigap policies would be expected to pay less for their health care overall. However, Medigap reforms that prohibit first dollar coverage and charge additional coinsurance for hospital, home health and other services would have a disproportionately negative impact on Medigap enrollees who are in relatively poor health, those who require inpatient hospital care, and those with modest incomes – as these groups are more likely to face higher overall health care costs as a result of the changes.

How to Choose a Medigap Supplemental Policy

Instead of getting original Medicare, plus a Medigap policy and a separate Part D drug plan, you could sign up for a Medicare Advantage plan that provides all-in-one coverage.

It’s also worth mentioning that fact that your premiums may have gone up because you bought a plan with so-called “attained-age” premiums. They’re deliberately designed to start out low when you’re 65 and increase the older you get. People buy them because they’re cheap, not realizing that when they get to be your age, they’re going to be the most expensive. We recommend purchasing policies that are community rated, meaning that premiums are the same no matter what your age. They’ll be a little more expensive when you first buy them, but less expensive than an attained-age policy when you get older.

Strengthen Medicare: End Drug Company Price Setting

With Congress committed to curbing wasteful spending, our representatives should be focused on ending drug-company price setting in America. Like every other wealthy nation, the United States can negotiate prices for its citizenry without hampering vital drug research or impeding new drugs from going to market. Drug research and marketing costs do not require Americans to pay grossly inflated prices, as the pharmaceutical industry often argues. There is no data to back up their claims that patients would suffer without high prices; to the contrary, there is every reason to believe drug makers are crying wolf on this issue. At any rate, even cutting-edge pharmaceutical research is of little value to us if brand-name and specialty drugs are increasingly unaffordable to vast numbers of Americans who need them.

What on Earth is the Donut Hole? A Brief Explanation of Medicare Part D and the “Donut Hole” » The NeedyMeds Blog

In 2013, you get out of the coverage gap when you have paid $4,750 out-of-pocket for covered drugs since the start of the year. When you reach this out-of-pocket limit, you get catastrophic coverage. The costs that help you reach catastrophic coverage include what you spent on drugs while in the donut hole and most of the discount on brand-name drugs you received in the coverage gap. If someone else pays for your drugs on your behalf, this will also count toward getting you out of the coverage gap. This includes drug costs paid for you by family members, most charities, State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs, AIDS Drug Assistance Programs and the Indian Health Service. You continue to pay your drug plan’s monthly premium during the gap, but the premium does not count toward the $4,750 out-of-pocket limit. The amount your drug plan paid for your drugs in your initial coverage period also does not count.

Medicare Part D 2009 Data Spotlight: Ten Most Common Brand

This Data Spotlight focuses on Part D plan coverage of the ten brand-name drugs that were most commonly prescribed for Medicare beneficiaries in 2006 and lack generic equivalents in 2009.

The list of the top ten brand-name drugs is based on the number of prescriptions filled in 2006 in all Part D plans. The list includes cholesterol-lowering and other cardiovascular medications; one drug for treating osteoporosis; two proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) used to treat gastrointestinal reflux and ulcers; an inhaled drug that treats asthma, emphysema, and other respiratory disorders; and medications used to treat dementia, depression, and bipolar disorder.

Three Progressive Ways To Reduce Medicare Costs By Billions Without Cutting Anyone’s Benefits

3. Globalize Medicare: Another protectionist barrier and detriment to free trade in the U.S. health care system is that seniors currently aren’t allowed to use their Medicare insurance system outside of the United States. An alternative to this would be to drop these trade barriers and allow seniors on Medicare to seek care abroad, where services are much cheaper. Economist Dean Baker estimates that if fifty percent of Medicare beneficiaries opted for this globalized option, then taxpayers would save more than $40 billion a year by 2020. President Obama has opposed this option in the past, but should re-examine it now.

When a Medicare enrollee purchases a Medicare supplement Plan N they are making a commitment to participate in their healthcare costs, while still maintaining their freedom to use the services of any physician or hospital. Plan N requires the insured to pay their annual Medicare Part B deductible, up to a $20 physician’s office co-pay, a $50 emergency room co-pay unless admitted to the hospital and any excess charges over and above the Medicare approved charge. One should note that Medicare excess charges very rarely even exist as almost all physicians and hospitals accept the Medicare approved charge as full payment. This is called Medicare assignment and the consumer can contact their physician’s insurance billing office to confirm that they accept assignment and are considered a “participating” provider.

What is Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Insurance

In order to sign up for Medicare Supplement coverage, you must already have Part A and Part B. These plans are offered by private insurance companies and come in 10 standardized policy types that are denoted by the letters A-N.

For example, the benefits associated with Plan F are the same no matter where you buy it, though costs may differ across all carriers. Not every carrier of Medicare Supplement Insurance offers all 10 plan types, and three states in the U.S. have their own version of these plans: Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

AH Insurance Services: CMS Publishes 2013 Choosing a Medigap Policy Guide

A Medigap policy is private health insurance that wraps around the Original Medicare Program (Parts A and B) by filling in gaps to the extent provided by the specific Medigap plan purchased.  This means it helps pay some of the health care costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, such as copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. Medigap plans sold in the U.S. are known by their “plan letter name” such as Plan F or Plan N.  Consumers who buy a Medigap policy typically also purchase a Stand-alone Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) since today’s Medigap plans don’t offer prescription drug coverage. A Medigap policy is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) because those plans deliver all of your Medicare benefits, while Medigap just supplements your Original Medicare benefits.  Under a Medicare Advantage Plan (also known as the Medicare Part C Program), you have the convenience of having coverage for doctors, hospitals and prescription drugs all under one roof.  Medicare Advantage plans utilize provider networks, however, which can be more restrictive compared to the simpler requirement under Medigap policies to visit Medicare-approved providers.

Medicare Advantage Plans vs. Medicare Supplemental Insurance Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans are private insurance companies that receive subsidy from Medicare Insurance. Medicare pays the private insurance company a premium to cover the individual. Medicare is essentially selling your insurance to the private insurance company. Your Medicare Advantage Plan is then liable to pay all of your covered benefits. All Medicare Advantage Plans are required to provide the same coverage as Medicare-covered benefits. Medical Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), Private Fee-for-Service Plan (PFFS) and Preferred Provider Organization (PPOs). Since these plans are private owned companies they have their own network of doctors and facilities. If you choose to use a provider out of network you may have to pay out of pocket costs. These cost are usually deductibles, co-pays and unreasonable charges incurred by non-participating doctors and facilities. Therefore, it is wise to find and establish doctors within your network. The biggest advantage to choosing a Medicare Advantage Plan is that the average premium is approximately $50 per month and sometimes free. The disadvantage is not every Medicare provider accepts these plans.

Cost of Medicare Supplement Plans

It is recommended that beneficiaries think about their future health needs when searching for a Medigap plan. A plan with low premium prices may not be the right plan for your budget if the plan uses a rating system in which prices increase over time. It is best to review a plan’s pricing method as well as its premium costs. Additionally, if you are not enrolled in the lowest cost plan in your area, you may switch plans at any time. Be aware, though, that medical underwriting may be used when switching Medigap plans outside of the Medigap Open Enrollment Period.

Another issue that should be kept in mind with Medigap policies, is that it is wiser to purchase a supplemental coverage within the first six months of being on Medicare Part B. This is when the insurers cannot deny the individual because of a preexistent health issue. Many insurance companies will tell the individual that they have better plans and better coverages. This is not true. The Medigap program is a national one and the coverage is the same no matter who one attains the policy from.

FAQ: Seniors May See Changes in Medigap Policies

Advocacy groups like the Medicare Rights Center oppose restricting Medigap plans, saying it would simply shift more costs from the government to elderly and low-income people who can least afford it. “Some in government feel people in Medicare don’t have enough ‘skin in the game,’” says Ilene Stein, federal policy director for the center. In fact, she says, people on Medicare already pay 15 percent of their incomes for health care, well above the level paid by non-Medicare households. While the proposals would cap maximum annual spending per enrollee to $5,500 or $7,500, “that’s a lot of money for someone making $22,000,” the median household income for those on Medicare, she says.

Crack down on waste and inefficiency: The U.S. health care system wastes as much as one-third of all spending because of inefficient payment systems, uncoordinated care, mistakes, duplication and unnecessary paperwork. We must step up efforts to detect fraud and crack down on criminals who file false Medicare claims. We need to focus on improving care and cutting unnecessary tests and procedures, which are often the result of payment incentives and fear of litigation.

Do Children’s Health Concerns Fall Through The Health Law’s Cracks?

MedPage Today: CHIP Faces Uncertain Future The final implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) could be bad news for re-authorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), a congressional staffer said. … Authorization for the program, which provides health coverage to families who make too much to qualify for Medicaid but too little to afford costly health insurance, expires at the end of September 2013. But it remains to be seen how CHIP will work with the ACA. President Obama’s 2010 health law sought to expand Medicaid coverage for those living up to 133 percent of poverty, while providing tax credits for those who don’t [qualify] for expanded Medicaid and make up to 400 percent of poverty. … CHIP won’t completely disappear after its current 4-year authorization ends on September 30. Instead, the program will just revert back to previous year’s funding levels and lawmakers will have an opportunity to wait for the ACA to fully come online and reassess the program (Pittman, 5/5).

Too Broke to Fix, or Are the Kids All Right Enough?

Think for a moment about a task you probably do every day: driving. It seems simple enough, but as soon as you get behind the wheel, you’re deluged with information. The instrument panel, the rearview mirror, traffic reports on the radio, kids in the back, the car in front of you, the billboards along the road, and more. Somehow we juggle all these inputs, and (usually) get to our destination safely.

thriftymommastips: You Might Be A Caregiver If: Medicare Part D Costs #Walgreens #ad

Caregiving is hard work. That’s reality. No way around it. It can be draining – emotionally, psychologically and physically. Walgreens Medicare Part D cost means it doesn’t have to be draining financially also. Which is good because this is what my prescription story looks like many weeks. I work 24/7 almost every day of the week. It’s exhausting and then some. Up until very recently I was caring for my Mom, caring for my kids, my family and myself. One of my children has special needs and that makes life challenging also. I have my own disability to contend with. Crohn’s Disease is a digestive disorder that rears its nasty head when least expected and leaves you with chronic pain in the abdomen and joints. Frazzled? Why yes, I am. Organized? Well, yes one day I will get around to straightening out my planner and setting up reminders for all those appointments and papers and forms and – well, who am I kidding?

What the Public Doesn’t Understand About Social Security and Medicare

We may feel that because we transferred money to our parents, our kids, in turn, owe us.  But we must take into account also how much they can or should afford for this task as opposed to their own current needs for themselves and their children.  Think of a one-family society, where three kids support their parents, but then those three kids have no children of their own (or only one or two children).  What those three kids gave their parents informs us only slightly on what they can or should get from their own children if there are none or fewer of them.  Likewise, when demographics change and there are fewer workers to support an aging population, society has to make adjustments, regardless of what some may otherwise think is “fair” or what they think is their entitlement.

CARR ALLISON Medicare Compliance Group: New Jersey Court Determines Adequacy of Liability Medicare Set

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

DuHamell joins the growing number of cases in which liability plaintiffs and defendants are turning to the courts to resolve the issue of whether a designated sum of money is sufficient to protect Medicare’s potential future interests.  It should be noted that liability MSAs are not required.  If a Medicare beneficiary settles a claim and money is being paid, even in part, because of the future medical expenses that will be incurred, however, Medicare’s future interest in settlement proceeds should be considered in some manner.  In an increasing number of cases, one or both parties are insisting on “approval” of designated Medicare Set-aside amounts from some type of governing authority.  Even though Medicare is not bound by state court judgments, with no established method for CMS review and approval of liability settlements and an inconsistency between Regional Offices as to whether review will be granted, parties are left with little alternative but to turn to the state courts for assistance.

2013 Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Federal Hospital Insurance and Federal Supplemental Medical Insurance Trust Funds : New Jersey Healthcare Blog

Without unprecedented changes in health care delivery systems and payment mechanisms, the prices paid by Medicare for health services are very likely to fall increasingly short of the costs of providing these services. By the end of the long-range projection period, Medicare prices for hospital, skilled nursing facility, home health, hospice, ambulatory surgical center, diagnostic laboratory, and many other services would be less than half of their level without consideration of the productivity price reductions. Medicare prices would be considerably below the current relative level of Medicaid prices, which have already led to access problems for Medicaid enrollees, and far below the levels paid by private health insurance. Well before that point, Congress would have to intervene to prevent the withdrawal of providers from the Medicare market and the severe problems with beneficiary access to care that would result. Overriding the productivity adjustments, as Congress has done repeatedly in the case of physician payment rates, would lead to substantially higher costs for Medicare in the long range than those projected under current law.
