Many of the circumstances in which Surprise Medical Billings occur are those in which neither the patient nor the physician (called on to perform serious, perhaps life-saving services) is at fault. In a sense, both patient and doctor are “victims” of being gerrymandered out of the market-based process in which a patient contracts with a doctor knowing that the costs will be covered by their insurance or, if not, expressly agreeing to pay the resulting charges. … [Read more...] about BARR: Don’t Let ‘Surprise Medical Billing’ Pave The Way For ‘Medicare for All’
Investors of a liberal disposition may, though, blanch at some of his personal views.

In a review of the film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, he writes that there are three serious messages from the main character, Gordon Gekko, and Gekko is right on all three counts. In other posts, President Obama gets a drubbing, too. … [Read more...] about Investment funds: Is Terry Smith the new Warren Buffet?

"Key to the success of a whole-of-America approach to combatting COVID-19 is working with our state and local partners to make sure America's healthcare providers have the tools and the resources they need to take care of patients – including spurring private industry to ramp up production of needed materials. HHS, alongside other federal agencies, has been working day and night to support local communities and take actions to help our healthcare system respond quickly and effectively. Secretary Azar has already taken action on a recommendation in this report, requesting, among a series of proposals, that governors allow licensed healthcare providers to practice across state lines. Additionally, states should rapidly re-activate licenses of retired healthcare practitioners and relax the scope of practice requirements to ensure doctors and nurses can practice to the full extent of their capability. … [Read more...] about Some hospitals temporarily cutting staff as coronavirus crisis worsens: “We were kind of puzzled”
While in the immediate term we need to confront the coronavirus pandemic by increasing access to ventilators, personal protective equipment and supporting our health care workforce, we also need to remember that it is the job of government leaders to prepare for the worst. And Medicaid block grants would do just the opposite: Generating savings for states and the federal government in economic times and putting the most vulnerable at risk in downtimes. … [Read more...] about COVID-19 makes it clear: Medicaid block grants will make everyone worse off

Trofim Lysenko was a Soviet biologist who gained the favor of Joseph Stalin by promoting pseudoscientific theories that purported to apply Marxist-Leninist theory to biology. Lysenko’s insight was to dismiss the burgeoning field of genetics as a capitalist lie, and to posit a socialist alternative theory of biology that refused to accept that plants were bound by any such thing as “genes.” Orange trees would flourish in Siberia, he promised Stalin. Catering both to the regime’s state ideology and its yearning for prosperity — he promised his methods would yield orange trees in Siberia — Lysenko established his crackpot theories as official Soviet science, and purged scientists who refused to endorse them. Stalin directed Soviet farmers to follow Lysenko’s bizarre theories, contributing to mass starvation. … [Read more...] about Why Trump Is Overruling Scientists to Pursue His Pet Coronavirus Drug
Another positive about the Homeland Security Advisory System is its brevity, which doesn’t saddle a reader with too much information. Adler also points out that, in at least the New Zealand chart above, there’s too much text, period. The government has published a confusing mishmash of guidelines, presented without any uniformity of organization or even grammar. She suggests that a more grounded approach would be to use icons in addition to colors. “With each alert, if you had an icon for travel, and an icon of gatherings, and an icon of handwashing, you’d know what to look for, and you quickly understand it,” says Adler. “I [also] think it would help with people retaining information.” These icons should be arranged in the same, predictable spot under each color. And they’d come with an added bonus: You could read them with no understanding of English required. … [Read more...] about To stomp out COVID-19, America will need a better warning system
