Medical device tax comes back Jan. 1, but opponents trying to ease its effects

first_img WASHINGTON — For the first time in years, the medical device tax will take effect Jan. 1, after Congress left town without delivering on a long-promised delay or repeal. But opponents of the tax, both in industry and on Capitol Hill, aren’t giving up yet: They’re scrambling to find another solution that could offer some relief at the start of the new year.Already they’ve secured commitments from congressional leaders that they will delay or repeal the 2.3 percent excise tax early in 2018. And now some lobbyists and lawmakers are working with the Treasury Department in hopes that the Trump administration will waive the penalties associated with problematic compliance in the early weeks of the year, before Congress might make good on its effort to address the tax. That will help companies whose accounting and reporting systems might not be ready for the Jan. 1 start date, an industry official said.

Placing more regulations on air medical services would be bad for patients

first_img About the Author Reprints Please enter a valid email address. First OpinionPlacing more regulations on air medical services would be bad for patients On the night after Christmas 2013, as Whitney Corby was driving to the gym in Corning, N.Y., the University at Albany lacrosse player’s car hit black ice and smashed into a tree. The crew who arrived at the scene knew they couldn’t treat Whitney and that she was running out of time. They called the closest air medical provider, Guthrie Air from Sayre, Pa., and drove Whitney to a nearby school football field where the helicopter could land with the critical care team. They flew her to the closest Level 2 trauma hospital, which was back in Pennsylvania, to treat her fractured skull, traumatic brain injury, broken collarbone, and more.Corby’s story isn’t unique. Air medical providers fly approximately 375,000 patients each year. Ninety percent of those patients are transported because they have suffered a serious cardiac event, stroke, or other trauma. Many of those flights cross state boundaries to take patients to the closest, most appropriate hospital. In many rural communities across the country, hospital closures have decreased access to emergency care and essential medical services, requiring rapid transport by air over longer distances, and in many cases across state lines, to larger hospitals.Private insurers are now putting patients helped by air medical transport in the middle of payment issues. Not only are insurers limiting which air medical companies are in their provider networks, and therefore affecting whether the transport is covered, they are also limiting the amount they will pay for the cost of the emergency transportation and the treatment received on board. That means patients needing air transport are often left with unpaid bills in spite of paying monthly premiums for health care coverage.advertisement Richard Sherlock A pilot prepares a medical helicopter at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire in 2016. Dom Smith/STAT [email protected] A different proposal, this one contained in the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2018, would have a devastating impact on access to air medical services. Section 412(h) of this act would allow each state to regulate air medical services according to arbitrary state- or even county-level preferences. The net effect would be a crazy quilt of regulations that would essentially create borders in the sky and make it more difficult for emergency air medical providers to get patients to the best, closest medical facility.If this section passed, an air ambulance based in Maryland that picks up a patient in Virginia and delivers her to a hospital in Washington, D.C., would be subject to different laws and regulations in three different jurisdictions. Those regulations could affect everything from the equipment on these aircraft to how the aircraft are operated, where control centers are located, and the medical staff on board.When Congress enacted the Airline Deregulation Act in 1978, one of the primary purposes was to encourage expansion of the air transportation industry by exempting air carriers from overly burdensome and disparate regulations by the states. Air medical services were part of the discussion as lawmakers considered the broad impact of this change to federal oversight of the aviation industry.Among other provisions, the Airline Deregulation Act says that a state “may not enact or enforce a law, regulation, or other provision having the force and effect of law related to a price, route, or service of an air carrier.” This allows air ambulance companies to provide lifesaving services and make decisions based on what is in the best interest of the patient, rather than on arbitrary state, county, or municipal boundaries. Related: WATCH: A helicopter medic grapples with trauma across vast distances By Richard Sherlock May 1, 2018 Reprints Tags advocacyCongressemergency medicine Leave this field empty if you’re human: By their very nature, air ambulances operate on an interstate basis. Every day they transport more than 30 percent of their patients across state lines for definitive care. Exempting air medical services from the deregulation act would drastically change the way the air medical transport system works, and not for the better.Section 412(h) also requires air medical services to split their charges into two categories: aviation related and non-aviation-related charges. This would allow insurers to further limit coverage for the emergency medical transportation that uses highly specialized medical helicopters, state-of-the-art medical equipment, and very experienced pilots and focus only on the “allowable treatment” provided on board. While that would lower insurance company payments, it would leave patients with a bigger portion of the bill.Although Section 412(h) is supposed to be aimed at protecting patients from onerous charges, it does absolutely nothing to lower the bills that patients get for air medical transport. In addition to eroding uniform federal oversight of the aviation industry, it is likely to create a more complicated payment structure that will benefit health insurance companies at the expense of patients.If the intent of Congress is to address the issues of access to emergency care and cost of air medical services, then it must address the root cause of the problem — vast under-reimbursement by Medicare — by passing the Ensuring Access to Air Ambulance Services Act and eliminating Section 412(h) of the FAA Reauthorization Act.Richard Sherlock is the president and CEO of the Association of Air Medical Services. Privacy Policy Newsletters Sign up for First Opinion A weekly digest of our opinion column, with insight from industry experts. Congress could help fix a big part of the problem by passing the Ensuring Access to Air Ambulance Services Act. This bipartisan legislation would require all air medical transport providers to submit their costs for transport to CMS so it can update its reimbursement schedule based on the actual cost of care today, not 20 years ago. This will go a long way toward preserving access to air medical services that provide not only emergency care but also timely access to our nation’s emergency health care systems for those whose life depends on this care.advertisement To make matters worse, Medicare and Medicaid payments for air transport are low — sometimes as low as half of what it costs — in part because the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services hasn’t evaluated what it pays for air medical transport in nearly 20 years. Seventy percent of patients’ bills for air medical transport are paid at the Medicare rate or less. In some cases, private insurers base their rates on a percentage of what Medicare pays.last_img read more

RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR AFD and Eskom commit to a competitive electricity sector AfDB $2.1m grant will aid Mauritania to advance climate risk management solutions. A new report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) has found that by meeting the targets set at the Paris Agreement, millions of lives will be saved.The report, launched today at the United Nations COP24, outlines key recommendations for policymakers.Dr Maria Neira, WHO Director of Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health, said: “The true cost of climate change is felt in our hospitals and in our lungs. The health burden of polluting energy sources is now so high, that moving to cleaner and more sustainable choices for energy supply, transport and food systems effectively pays for itself. When health is taken into account, climate change mitigation is an opportunity, not a cost.”According to WHO, 7 million deaths occur each year due to air pollution worldwide, costing approximately $ 5.11 trillion in global welfare losses. In the 15 countries that emit the most greenhouse gas emissions, the health impacts of air pollution are estimated to cost more than 4% of their GDP. In comparison, actions to meet the Paris Agreement would cost around 1% of global GDP.Human activities are also destabilising the Earth’s climate which correlates directly with poor health. Fossil fuel combustion serves as the primary driver of climate change and is a major contributor to air pollution.Transitioning to low carbon energy sources will improve air quality and provide immediate health benefits. For example, active transport options such as cycling can prevent diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.WHO reports that despite efforts to protect lives from the impact of climate change more needs to be done. Currently, only 0.5% of multilateral climate funds for climate change adaptation have been allocated to health projects.Dr Joy St John, Assistant Director-General for Climate and Other Determinants of Health commented: “We now have a clear understanding of what needs to be done to protect health from climate change – from more resilient and sustainable healthcare facilities to improved warning systems for extreme weather and infectious disease outbreaks.

Conquer Your Mind

first_imgFor days I have been thinking and introspecting to write something for my blog .. but could not really think of or should I say I was not putting my mind on to it. Our mind is such a prankster that it can very easily wander to various directions till the time we control it …We’ve all been there. You’re slouched in a meeting or a classroom, supposedly paying attention, but your mind has long since wandered off, churning out lists of all the things you need to do—or that you could be doing if only you weren’t stuck here… suddenly you realize everyone is looking your way expectantly, waiting for an answer. But you’re staring blankly, grasping at straws to make a semi-coherent response. The curse of the wandering mind!How often are you really, entirely immersed in the current moment and letting your mind take a rest from overthinking? Or are you worrying about the past, anxious about the future, or involved in a fantasy world?Often we can find ourselves re-running a conversation we had earlier today, last week or even last year. “Why did he say that? What a fool I made of myself! She must think I’m an idiot!”We spin our wheels, knowing in our gut that analysis can lead to paralysis, but still unable to stop our whirling thoughts. So how can we combat this wandering and overthinking? I have heard that the average person thinks around 70,000 thoughts a day. That’s a lot, especially they are unproductive, self-abusive and just a general waste of energy.You can let your thoughts run amok, but why would you? It is your mind, your thoughts; isn’t it time to take your power back? Isn’t it time to take control?You can write out or pre-plan your counter thoughts or affirmation so you can be ready. This is the first squatter you should evict, forcefully,Put things into perspective. Will this situation you’re turning over in your mind matter in five years? Or are you blowing things out of proportion?Know your body rhythm & schedule your activities accordingly. Some of us are morning larks, while others are night owls. Which are you? When do you tend to be at your best physically, emotionally, mentally? If you focus best in the morning, try to use this time to tackle challenging projects that might seem overwhelming later in the day. If you’re at the top of your game in the evening, plan to take on important conversations or assignments at this time, when you’re most likely to be effective. One advantage of completing matters in the morning is that you can then go about the rest of your day with a sense of accomplishment (or relief).Surrender the need to be perfect or omnipotent. There is no magical finish line which you will cross where you are “done” and have nothing more to learn. We are not meant to be perfect. We are continually growing and changing. We never know all of the facts – instead, we do the best we can with the information at hand. Just do your best each day, then let the matter go.Accept that you cannot change the past. Maybe things didn’t turn out the way you wanted them to, or maybe you made a mistake – extract what possible lesson you can learn from the experience, then move on. Don’t let your past crowd out the present in your mind.Do only one thing at a time. Multi-tasking can contribute to the flurry in our minds. Sitting and being mindful is not always possible. However, you can practice putting all of your attention on just one thing. This in itself would probably be a significant change, as most of us usually do several things at one time. How often have you simultaneously been on the phone while also racing down the freeway, preparing a meal, or surfing the Web? It’s impossible to focus 100% on one thing when you’re juggling various activities at the same time. Instead, you end up dividing your attention between multiple items, and this can result in information overload, which is a recipe for anxiety (& overthinking).Acknowledge the problem, but focus more on the solution. Consider, “What is the best thing that can happen?”, rather than worrying about what might go wrongPractice mindfulness it alleviates stress, it works as an antidote for mind-wandering and the negative effects that losing concentration may have on youSo when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.“For him who has no concentration, there is no tranquillity.”– Bhagavad Gitalast_img read more

UPDATED: North Bergen Housing Authority, Wainstein in court battle over Election…

first_imgBy John Heinis/Hudson County ViewNorth Bergen mayoral hopeful Larry Wainstein won a preliminary injunction yesterday that would allow him and 10 workers to campaign at housing authority buildings on Election Day, but the final outcome remains uncertain as the ruling has already been appealed.“Ordered that from the day Plaintiff provides Defendant with the list of Designated Campaign Workers through May 14, 2019, and only between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.,” United States District Judge Esther Salas ruled yesterday.Specifically, the order granted Wainstein and 10 campaign workers access to the NBHA buildings located at 5828 Meadowview Ave., 3131 Grand Ave., 6121 Grand Ave. and 6800 Colombia Ave.“Plaintiff has been denied and continues to be denied his First Amendment right to distribute information … Moreover, if plaintiff loses his campaign because of not being able to reach voters in the building, that injury would be one ‘which could not be redressed by legal or an equitable remedy following a trial,’” the ruling says.However, attorney Stephen Edelstein, of Weiner Law Group LLP, has already filed an appeal with the Third Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals, claiming that “the NBHA has historically regulated canvassing, politicking and soliciting on its properties.”He further argues that keeping keeping candidates out of the NBHA is essential for controlling the safety, security and well-being of tenants is essential, as well for controlling crime and potential fraud.Edelstein also asserts that the NBHA passed a resolution on March 21st, two days after Wainstein filed the suit, that calls for all people and organizations allowed inside are “content neutral.”” … The NBHA does not allow the posting of political signs or distribution of political literature of any kind in all common areas, offices, or community rooms in any NBHA properties,” the resolution says.The only area where the two sides seem to agree is that political campaigning is allowed on the public property outside of the NBHA buildings.The appellate court has no legal obligation to rule before the May 14th municipal elections, but it is highly likely that they will.On that date, Wainstein squares off with Mayor Nick Sacco in a rematch from 2015.
