New Mexico Medical Society

NMMS has been communicating and working with Human Services Department on the significant financial shortfall New Mexico is facing this year in the Medicaid budget due to the decrease in oil prices.  The price decrease, while good news when filling up your car, has negatively impacted the collections of taxes on oil, gas, and Gross Receipts Tax from businesses in communities across the state – essentially creating a vortex that has drained the tax base and state coffers.

Decision Memo for Screening for Lung Cancer with Low Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) (CAG

The NLST demonstrated benefit by enrolling a large number of high exposure patients (smoking history) to be followed for several years to detect a significant decrease (247 deaths from lung cancer per 100,000 person-years in the low-dose CT group and 309 deaths per 100,000 person-years in the radiography group; number needed to screen (NNS) to prevent one lung cancer death = 320).  The trial was ended early after an interim analysis.  The decision to compare to screening with chest radiology (Church, 1990) was made before the PLCO trial was completed that showed chest radiology did not reduce lung cancer mortality (Oken, 2011); however, the radiology group was exposed to harms that may not have occurred in a no screening control, potentially enhancing the relative benefits and the likelihood of a positive trial result.  The harms of LDCT relate to the CT scan itself and the follow-up diagnostic tests or interventions (adverse events from bronchoscopies and biopsies), and patient psychosocial consequences, and have been recognized for many years as noted in past USPSTF reviews.  For example, death within 60 days after most invasive diagnostic procedures was twice as high in the radiology group compared to the LDCT group (2.1 % versus 1.0 %; NLST, 2011), which with a large sample size may result in a meaningful difference.  NLST investigators wrote:  “one of the most important factors determining the success of screening will be the mortality associated with surgical resection, which was much lower in the NLST than has been reported previously in the general U.S. population (1 % vs. 4 %).”  If this is not maintained with broad implementation of screening, the screening benefits may not be realized.  A better understanding of why patients screened with LDCT had lower mortality from invasive procedures is needed.  Questions such as whether the state of disease, patient, physician, or bias of either the physician/practitioner or patient may need to be considered.

Physicians for a National Health Program

Business owner Richard Master knows firsthand how the dysfunctional U.S. health care system punishes not only patients, but also employers who are forced to spend more and more to insure their workers. His documentary, “Fix It,” makes a strong business case for addressing this festering problem, and includes interviews with many PNHP members. A trailer for the film can be accessed above, or you can view the full version for free by visiting the “Fix It” website.
