  • ACA Compliance & 2015 FORUM West

    in Business

    On this week's episode, hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz welcome a special guest from Tango Health to the program to talk ACA compliance. Then the hosts embark on an in-depth discussion of the upcoming FORUM West conference in Las Vegas.

    Kami Haynes, director of marketing, Tango Health will join the program for the first segment. Complying with the Affordable Care Act is a challenge for organizations, requiring a solid understanding of the complex requirements for reporting employee data to the IRS. How can you coordinate multiple sources of employee data required for reporting? How can you be sure you’re correctly reporting health benefits offered to employees? How can you ensure accuracy when populating complex ACA reporting forms? And what are best practices for obtaining data not been tracked prior to the ACA? In this interview, Kami and the hosts will help listeners understand the reporting requirements and potential pitfalls in the reporting process and how your organization can tackle the ACA compliance challenge.

    ACA Update by Health Economist Paul Keckley

    in Health

    Five years ago, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. And today, we have Navigant’s Paul Keckley looking at the goals of the law and discussing what’s working and what’s ahead for the ACA.

    So Is It Working?

    Has it increased access to coverage? Yes, at least for some, and at least for now.

    Has it reduced costs? It’s too soon to know.

    Has it improved the public’s understanding of the U.S. health system? Regrettably no.

    What’s Ahead?

    The stakes in the states are higher

    The winners and losers are shaking out

    Innovators with value-driven solutions are disrupting the status quo

    The ACA will be a spotlight issue in Campaign 2016

    Tune in to listen to more of what Paul Keckley has to say with our host Patricia Salber (@docweighsin).

    Libertarian Problems and also ACA subsidies

    in Politics Progressive

    On the April 23, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio: 

    Yesterday was Earth Day. To celebrate it I had shared a picture on my facebook wall saying "Happy Libertarian Earth Day" with a picture of a sunken ship and pollution everywhere. This caused a big debate. On many issues I do believe Libertarians have it right (mostly because they agree with liberals). However, in some areas their line of reasoning is flawed and even damaging. Can the invisible hand effectively stop pollution? Does the non aggression principal allow for government regulation?

    In the second half I will be discussing King V Burwell. Arguments were made in March to the Supreme Court. I will have on as a guest Todd Haley who was able to get affordable health coverage under the ACA and whose case was brought up by Harvard Law School Center for Health Law and Public Policy. Mr. Haley would lose affordable coverage and would be adversely effected by a ruling against subsidies on exchanges that are federally run. 

    Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week, and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right at 8pm Central on Blog Talk Radio.

    Lindsey Benage & National ACA/Medicaid Vigils; Pamela John & ACA Success Stories

    in Politics Progressive

    With a hurricane of negativity & false ACA horror stories flying from the right, the truth is out there.  The truth is negative (at the hands of Red State legislatures & Red State Governors), with denial of Medicaid Expansion money (already paid for by Red State taxpayers) costing lives.  The truth is also positive, with hundreds of thousands of citizens getting more comprehensive coverage, as well as lower monthly premiums and lower deductibles.

    Our first guest is Lindsey Benage, of Kansas, who has seen the negativity of Red State pushback, as manifested by ultra-conservative Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas legislature.  People are most certainly dying, as evidenced by Mayor O'Neal walking to DC to raise awareness that citizens of his town Belhaven, NC are dying without the services at Pungo Hospital.  Lindsey is passionate about speaking up for the lives of those that will certainly die without Medicaid or insurance.  That is why she is organizing, with the help of others (including you), a nationally coordinated series of vigils to acknowledge the hurt that comes without the help of Medicaid Expansion or good health insurance coverage. Please tune in just after 7pm Eastern to hear Lindsey's story and to get more details about the effort to raise awareness through these vigils.  She will have most of the first hour.

    Our second guest is already a friend of the show.  Pamela John has appeared once before (back in May), sharing many stories submitted by real folks who shared their ACA success stories.  Please tune in after 8pm Eastern to hear more about her story and, more importantly, the ACA Success Stories!

    With so many lives on the line, this will be an important show.  Don't miss it!  Let's get the conversation going...

    Why One-Third of Hospitals will Close by 2020

    in Health

    David Houle and Jonathan Fleece are co-authors of the book The New Health Age: The Future of Health Care in America.  Three years ago they co-authored a provocative short blog post in KevinMD, predicting that by 2020 one-third of American hospitals would close.  http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2012/03/onethird-hospitals-close-2020.html

    They pointed to four factors for this:

    First, America must bring down its crippling healthcare costs, and hospitals are one of the most expensive components of the system.
    Second, statistically speaking hospitals are just about the most dangerous places to be in the United States. Three times as many people die every year due to medical errors in hospitals as die on our highways.
    Third, hospital customer service is abysmal. Where else do you have to wait four hours for service?
    Fourth, health care reform will make connectivity, electronic medical records, and transparency commonplace in health care, and customers will be able to do some comparison shopping for the first time.

    We have invited them to speak with us about how we are doing along that path.  Have hospitals taken notice and changed their ways? or are we still on a timeline toward closure of one-third of American hospitals?  And if that is true, how will we receive our care in the new age?

    David Houle is a futurist, advisor and speaker and Jonathan Fleece is a health care attorney, advisor, and speaker.
