Criminalizing reproductive rights will perpetuate an unjust system and worsen racial health disparities, Kansas City Councilwoman Ryana Parks-Shaw said as the council approved two bills Thursday to support those rights.

“The system has failed us for years,” said Parks-Shaw, District 5.

The first order, which passed 10-2 at Thursday’s meeting, could reimburse city employees for health care-related travel expenses outside of Kansas City. Council members Heather Hall, District 1, and Dan Fowler, District 2, voted no.

The council also unanimously passed a resolution declaring that reproductive rights are human rights. Both passed through the same-day adoption process, which requires a supermajority of votes.

Kansas City leaders voted on abortion legislation six days after the Supreme Court struck down federal abortion rights and Missouri’s trigger ban went into effect.

Abortion, Parks-Shaw said, is an essential part of health care. And this has an impact on the health of mothers and babies. A 2021 study found that an abortion ban would lead to an increase in pregnancy-related deaths

Since last year, nine black babies in Kansas City have died for three white babies, according to the Kansas City Health Department. Nationally, black mothers are three times more likely to die than white mothers from complications in pregnancy or childbirth, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

“That’s how systemic racism works,” Parks-Shaw said. “Directly or indirectly, explicitly or not. This results in policies or institutional structures that hurt Blacks and Browns, and those living in low-income areas, perpetuating and increasing the inequalities that began with the imports of Blacks into America as slaves in 1619 and which continue to persist to this day.

Health coverage for municipal employees

Legislation approved Thursday directs City Manager Brian Platt to negotiate city insurance plans. The health system board, which oversees health care benefits for city employees, will then make its own recommendations. Any changes will require additional approval from City Council.

The law does not provide an exact dollar amount that would be made available to employees. Instead, they could be reimbursed once a year for travel expenses for health care outside the city limits, because “recent barriers have been imposed on access to comprehensive reproductive health care and complete”.

Nearly all abortions are banned in Missouri following the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion last week striking down the federal right to abortion established by Roe v. Wade of 1973. The Missouri ban does not include exceptions for rape or incest, but does for medical emergencies. Many Missourians travel to Kansas for abortions, which accounts for 44% of all abortions performed in the state in 2021.

Only one clinic in Missouri — St. Louis-area Planned Parenthood Reproductive Health Services — offered abortion services before the ban was enacted.

There are two clinics near Kansas City across the state line, both in Overland Park.

Kansas voters will decide in August whether to amend the state constitution to allow state lawmakers to approve a ban.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said the election is where the sense of urgency comes into play, as employees may not have access to care near the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Lucas said the city is working to ensure employees still have that access.

“It is important that we uphold women’s right to choose access to care and that we ensure that our employees continue to have the same access to reproductive health, because I believe it is vital for the health , and we’re making sure they have it no matter what happens in Missouri, or even Kansas in five weeks,” Lucas said before the meeting.

The ordinance specifies that she will not be paid for by taxpayer-generated funds, such as the city’s general revenue.

Fowler, who voted against the order, said he wants it to be heard by a board committee first. Hall, who was also a no, said she thinks the city already has great employee coverage.

“I just believe local government should stay out of private medical decisions,” Hall said.

Lucas said he hopes Kansas City can set an example for other regional leaders.

Kansas City’s decision follows an order introduced in St. Louis last week that would use federal COVID-19 relief funds for a $1 million “reproductive equity fund.” These funds would be used for logistical support such as travel; the money would not fund abortion procedures.

St. Louis’s law, unlike Kansas City’s, is not limited to just city employees.

St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones said the city expects to be prosecuted.

Lucas said the way the Kansas City legislation was drafted “does not welcome a legal challenge.”

The new benefit does not come into effect immediately. Lucas said it starts with negotiations with the health system board. Then the open registration could be extended.

“I hope more than anything, however, that this is a model and a sign for women in Kansas City and throughout our region, that no matter what changes in the state legislature or in the House of state, we will continue to ensure that we ‘advocate for access to quality reproductive care and safe reproductive care,’ Lucas said. “That’s why we are taking these steps today.”

“Form of Discrimination”

The resolution approved by the city council states that “reproductive rights are fundamental human rights and the criminalization of access to reproductive rights is a form of discrimination against women, girls and others at risk of becoming pregnant”.

Hall was absent in the 11-0 vote on the resolution.

Councilman Kevin O’Neill, District 1 at-large, said he supports the resolution.

“I think the problem we have in America is that men aren’t held responsible for women’s pregnancy,” O’Neill said. “The whole burden is on the woman. Until we find a way to put everyone on the same set of responsibilities, I think it’s hard to say that only the woman is going to suffer.

Councilman Eric Bunch, District 4, said men “need to stop getting in between a woman’s health decisions and her doctor.” And while the resolution is mostly symbolic, Bunch added, it’s important the city says it supports women and their access to care.

Fowler, who has said he is Roman Catholic and adopted, said if abortion rights existed in 1954, it may not be here today. Fowler said her morals told her that a healthy mother should carry a healthy child to term and if that child should not be with that family, the child should be given to another. However, he says, that’s not always the case.

“I don’t know where the line is. I’m not going to sit here and pretend I know where the line is,” Fowler said. “What I’ve come to reconcile in my own mind is one thing I know: and that’s that it’s not for me to tell somebody else what to do. I can only live according to my own moral compass.

Giant Eagle will pay out-of-state employee travel expenses for abortions https://medicbuzz.net/giant-eagle-will-pay-out-of-state-employee-travel-expenses-for-abortions/ Wed, 29 Jun 2022 01:10:26 +0000 https://medicbuzz.net/giant-eagle-will-pay-out-of-state-employee-travel-expenses-for-abortions/

Giant Eagle Supermarkets announced Tuesday that it will reimburse expenses for insured employees and family members who must travel interstate for comprehensive health care, including access to reproductive care.

The O’Hara-based supermarket chain’s decision mirrors policies announced by other companies since the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last week struck down the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade, a decision that leaves the right to abortion to individual states.

Sporting goods company Dicks Sporting Goods announced on June 24, the day the ruling was released, that it would cover travel expenses for employees who must travel out of state for abortions. . Disney and JP Morgan Chase & Co., Citigroup and Starbucks are among other national companies that have agreed to reimburse travel expenses for people traveling out of state for an abortion.

Giant Eagle’s statement does not mean abortion, but indicates that it is done to provide access to family planning services.

The company said it will share specific details related to this offer with its employees in the near future.

In addition to Pennsylvania, Giant Eagle has stores in Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, and Indiana, which have different abortion regulations.

While abortion remains legal in Pennsylvania under state law, abortion is only legal in Ohio until approximately six weeks of pregnancy.

Gov. Tom Wolf has backed pro-choice, as has Democratic gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano has pledged to ban all abortions if elected.

In Indiana, abortion clinics continue to operate, but current state law imposes restrictions on the procedure. Abortion is illegal after 22 weeks of pregnancy, although there are exceptions for medical emergencies. A waiting period is also required. Legislation is underway in this state to ban abortions.

West Virginia’s only abortion clinic closed after the Supreme Court issued its ruling.

5 Ways to Save Money, Lose Weight and Be Healthier Even in the Face of Rapid Inflation https://medicbuzz.net/5-ways-to-save-money-lose-weight-and-be-healthier-even-in-the-face-of-rapid-inflation/ Mon, 27 Jun 2022 01:02:48 +0000 https://medicbuzz.net/5-ways-to-save-money-lose-weight-and-be-healthier-even-in-the-face-of-rapid-inflation/

Estimated reading time: 7-8 minutes

A recent poll reveals that nearly 9 out of 10 Americans are very concerned about inflation.

As consumer prices hit a 30-plus-year high, many Americans are looking for ways to keep more money in their pockets. The study found that people planned to save by driving less (13% of responses), postponing home renovations (23%), cutting back on dining out and takeout (48%) and tightening their food budget (29%).

An unexpected benefit of this difficult economic situation is that it motivates people to take control of their health and weight. And with the National Health Expenditure Accounts showing that health care costs rose 9.7% in 2020 to a new high of $12,530 per person, one of the best ways to save money money (and maybe your life) is to improve your diet.

In today’s economic climate, here are some simple steps you can take to save money, be healthier, and shed some body fat.

1. Buy your pantry

People often feel guilty for spending too much money on takeout, but many don’t realize how much food and money they’re wasting by not using the food they already have. The United States Department of Agriculture estimates that the average American family wastes $1,500 a year on uneaten food. So, taking inventory of what’s in your pantry before you shop might help you make better choices.

2. Plan your meals

Developing a weekly menu and sticking to the plan can prevent you from impulse buying less healthy options at the store. Instead of reaching for junk food full of refined carbs, focus on meals high in protein and healthy fats. The Nutrition Source from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health reports that a low-carb diet can be healthy for your heart, as long as you eat healthy sources of protein and fat.

Another benefit of prioritizing proteins and healthy fats is that you’ll stay full longer, which can help you eat less.

“Protein takes more energy from you to digest than refined carbohydrates, and also makes your body feel full,” said Dr. Michelle Hauser, a clinician in medicine at Harvard Medical School and a certified chef and educator in nutrition. Blog.

3. Buy in bulk

It may cost more upfront, but buying groceries in bulk means paying less per item and reducing trips to the grocery store. You can split the cost with a friend or family member to save even more.

When it comes to what types of foods to buy in bulk, those giant boxes of cookies probably won’t help you reach your health goals, but foods high in essential amino acids and essential fatty acids will. According to the Cleveland Clinic, animal protein sources like beef, pork, eggs, and fish are complete proteins because they contain all of the essential amino acids. Fish is also an excellent source of essential fatty acids, as are seeds and nuts.

Keep in mind that while there are healthier carb options than refined versions, there are no essential carbs.

4. Be local

Eating seasonal foods is another great way to reduce waste and make healthier choices. If you don’t want to grow your own produce at home, try getting some fresh produce (including the aforementioned beef, pork, and eggs) at your local farmer’s market.

5. Eat healthier

Most people know they can and should eat healthier, but this surprising step may be the best way to save money. As mentioned above, controlling carbs, prioritizing protein, and filling up on healthy fats will help you achieve a healthier weight, which in turn will help you feel better and save a lot of money in healthcare costs. . This is the best type of health insurance.

Even small actions add up. Writing for Business Insider, Joshua Rodriguez says he saves around $200 a month on groceries by avoiding fast foods, cutting back on snacks and limiting packaged, frozen or canned foods.

And while it’s nice to save money, investing in your health is the biggest payoff of all.

Bringing research-based solutions to the real world

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you begin your journey to better health. Hardly anyone has the time, knowledge, discipline, or budget to plan, shop for, and prepare perfectly healthy meals. As a result, people make hasty and practical decisions about food, which can quickly torpedo their health goals.

“It keeps me feeling full. I had a mental fog before and just felt weak. I started and I can’t believe how much better I feel. And I’ve lost 10 pounds. Now , my family members use it,” one reviewer said.

Does the HLTH Code improve health and promote weight loss?

To be clear, weight loss and better health are not necessarily synonymous.

Eating the right things will boost your immune system, strengthen your muscles and bones, improve your gut health, and ultimately lead to a longer life. Improving your appearance is just the icing on the (very healthy) cake.

Most people know that losing weight is rarely easy, but they don’t understand why. According to the Cleveland Clinic, your body burns fat “through a series of complicated metabolic pathways.” You need the right combination of calorie balance and hormonal changes to get your body the message that it’s time to burn fat instead of storing it.

Based on the best available studies on human metabolism, as well as exercise, HLTH Code Complete Meal helps people lose weight without having to count every calorie.

Satisfaction guaranteed

]]> Wolf pushes $91 million for nursing homes to offset costs of proposed new staffing regulations, but industry says it’s not enough Spotlight PA https://medicbuzz.net/wolf-pushes-91-million-for-nursing-homes-to-offset-costs-of-proposed-new-staffing-regulations-but-industry-says-its-not-enough-spotlight-pa/ Fri, 24 Jun 2022 09:00:00 +0000 https://medicbuzz.net/wolf-pushes-91-million-for-nursing-homes-to-offset-costs-of-proposed-new-staffing-regulations-but-industry-says-its-not-enough-spotlight-pa/

HARRISBURG — Governor Tom Wolf is asking the Pennsylvania Legislature to spend millions to increase a key reimbursement rate for qualified nursing homes in the state to help offset the costs of proposed new regulations that would increase daily care required.

With the state’s June 30 budget deadline fast approaching, the Democrat wants to earmark $91.25 million to increase the amount of money qualified nursing homes receive for residents on Medicaid.

About 11,000 long-term care residents in Pennsylvania have died since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, a toll that has brought renewed attention to long-standing issues like dangerously low staffing needs and outdated regulations. .

Groups including the Pennsylvania Health Care Association, which lobbies on behalf of the state’s long-term care providers, say the state’s low Medicaid reimbursement rate is a major barrier to providing levels of higher care. The current rate, they say, may leave care homes without funding to raise employee salaries or buy patient care supplies.

The association estimates that Wolf’s investment would increase the daily Medicaid reimbursement rate to about $210 per resident on average from the current average rate of $199.96. Neighboring states such as Ohio, Maryland and New Jersey have higher rates.

But while the PHCA sees Wolf’s proposal as a welcome first step, the organization argues it’s not enough. The trade group estimates the regulatory changes would require hiring 10,000 more workers and spending an additional $434 million a year. This has led some to dismiss the plan as an unfunded mandate.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, there are 683 nursing homes in the state serving approximately 80,000 total residents. This number is expected to increase in the coming years as the state’s population over the age of 65 grows. According to the PHCA, about 66% of residents living in nursing homes across the state have their stay paid for by Medicaid. Health insurance accounts for an additional 13%.

It seems that lawmakers agree that more investment is needed, but how to do it is still debated. If funding for nursing homes remains as is, advocacy networks, experts and nurses on the ground worry that facilities will be ill-equipped to support the aging population.

“We’ve gotten to a point where we either have to invest in long-term care in this year’s state budget or the whole system could collapse,” said Zach Shamberg, president and CEO of the leadership of the Pennsylvania Health Care Association. “It would be disastrous for our elderly population.”

Why are refunds important?

With the way Medicaid and Medicare funds are distributed, many nursing home facilities seek to accommodate Medicare-funded patients rather than Medicaid-funded patients.

“We have decided in this country not to cover long-term nursing care in Medicare,” said David Grabowski, professor of health care policy at Harvard Medical School. “So that’s really the only major piece of service that’s being transferred to Medicaid today.”

Medicare is a federal insurance program that typically covers short-stay patients, such as physical therapy or post-surgical care patients.

Medicaid is a state-run assistance program that, under federal government guidelines, supports low-income people and generally covers long-term patients. The reimbursement rate is what each nursing home is paid on behalf of the patient qualified by the state government.

According to Grabowski, Pennsylvania’s low Medicaid reimbursement encourages nursing homes to seek out Medicare patients planning short stays rather than accepting Medicaid patients who will require long stays.

This dynamic, he continued, makes the federal government “a very generous payer,” and this windfall allows healthcare facilities to typically achieve double-digit margins on short-stay patients. Meanwhile, Medicaid patients typically drive negative margins for facilities, he said, causing a gap between the cost of care for residents and the amount of state funding.

According to research conducted in February for LeadingAge PA, a trade association that represents about 380 state providers who serve seniors, the daily gap between what nursing homes received for Medicaid residents and what they spent was $86.26 per resident on average.

Grabowski said increasing the Medicaid reimbursement rate could alleviate some of the problems. Lobbyists and industry advocates in Pennsylvania are asking for an investment of $294 million, rather than the $91.25 million proposed by Wolf.

Grabowski argues that any investment in the industry should also involve some form of accountability to ensure funds improve quality and are not misused.

“I think we’re going to have to rethink what it means to both live and work in a nursing home,” Grabowski said. “Because the current economic model is definitely broken.”

More money, more surveillance

Wolf’s $91.25 million land comes with proposed regulations that would require nursing homes to provide more hours of direct resident care.

State House and Senate Republican spokespersons confirmed that the caucuses would review the proposal and continue to invest in nursing homes, but did not provide details.

In 2020, Spotlight PA reported on long-criticized staffing and training regulations that have been exposed by the pandemic. Shamberg said the PHCA has found that in addition to rising costs nationwide, nursing homes face the same issues today.

Since the start of the pandemic, the state has earmarked nearly $500 million for nursing homes through Acts 24 of 2020 and 2021. These funds were intended to help ease the burden of additional costs related to COVID- 19. But as one-time infusions, the PHCA said the money does not close the Medicaid reimbursement rate gap and therefore does not increase staff numbers.

Karen Hipple, a licensed practical nurse at Oil City Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Venango County, said staffing ratios are too high — with one certified practical nurse caring for 20 to 30 patients, at facilities in which she worked and visited. She said increasing staff numbers must be the top priority, which requires more funding.

Hipple blames the shortage on the low wages faced by many nursing home workers. According to data from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for a licensed practical nurse is $16.44 per hour.
