How Health Insurance Works
When I consider purchasing an individual health insurance plan for myself or my family, do I have any financial obligations beyond the monthly premium and annual deductible? Answers: It depends on the plan, but some plans have the following cost-sharing elements that you should be aware of. Co-Payments: Some plans include a co-payment, which is typically a specific flat fee you pay for each medical service, such as $30 for an office visit. After the co-payment is made, the insurance company typically pays the remainder of the covered medical charges. Deductibles: Some plans include a deductible, which typically refers to the amount of money you must pay each year before your health insurance plan starts to pay for covered medical expenses. Coinsurance: Some plans include coinsurance. Coinsurance is a cost sharing requirement that makes you responsible for paying a certain percentage of any costs. The insurance company pays the remaining percentage of the covered medical expenses after your insurance deductible is met. Out-of-pocket limit: Some plans include an out-of-pocket limit. Typically, the out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you will pay out of your own pocket for covered medical expenses in a given year. The out-of-pocket limit typically includes deductibles and coinsurance. But, out-of-pocket limits don't typically apply to co-payments. Lifetime maximum: Most plans include a lifetime maximum. Typically the lifetime maximum is the amount your insurance plan will pay for covered medical expenses in the course of your lifetime. Exclusions & Limitations: Most health insurance carriers disclose exclusions & limitations of their plans. It is always a good idea to know what benefits are limited and which services are excluded on your plan. You will be obligated to pay for 100% of services that are excluded on your policy. Beginning September 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (health care reform) begins to phase out annual dollar limits. Starting on September 23, 2012, annual limits on health insurance plans must be at least $2 million. By 2014 no new health insurance plan will be permitted to have an annual dollar limit on most covered benefits. Some health insurance plans purchased before March 23, 2010 have what is called "grandfathered status." Health Insurance Plans with Grandfathered status are exempt from several changes required by health care reform including this phase out of annual limits on health coverage. If you purchased your health insurance policy after March 23, 2010 and you're due for a routine preventive care screening like a mammogram or colonoscopy, you may be able to receive that preventive care screening without making a co-payment. You can talk to your insurer or your licensed eHealthInsurance agent if you need help determining whether or not you qualify for a screening without a co-payment. There are five important changes that occurred with individual and family health insurance policies on September 23, 2010. Those changes are: 1. Added protection from rate increases: Insurance companies will need to publically disclose any rate increases and provide justification before raising your monthly premiums. 2. Added protection from having insurance canceled: An insurance company cannot cancel your policy except in cases of intentional misrepresentations or fraud. 3. Coverage for preventive care: Certain recommended preventive services, immunizations, and screenings will be covered with no cost sharing requirement. 4. No lifetime maximums on health coverage: No lifetime limits on the dollar value of those health benefits deemed to be essential by the Department of Health and Human Services. 5. No pre-existing condition exclusions for children: If you have children under the age of 19 with pre-existing medical conditions, their application for health insurance cannot be declined due to a pre-existing medical condition. In some states a child may need to wait for the state's open-enrollment period before their application will be approved.

Michael Porter on "Value Based Health Care Delivery"
According to Harvard professor Michael Porter, health care reform is proving to be one of the defining issues of the 21st century, both in the United States and throughout the world. Costs are exploding even in single-payer systems driven by aging populations and rising expectations for better care. There is heated debate about what to do, but the focus is on the wrong question: how to cut costs? Porter contends that the only real solution is to transform the delivery of health care to dramatically improve value, or the health outcomes per dollar spent. Health care systems in every country have a value problem, and fixing it will require restructuring of care delivery itself, not incremental solutions. This session offered a roadmap for transforming health care delivery, drawing on examples of leading health care providers and health plans that are achieving exciting value improvements in the US and other countries.

Multilevel Interventions in Health Care Conference: Presentation by Kelly Devers, PhD
Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Building the Foundation for Future Research Goals Healthcare Reform and Multilevel Interventions and Research: Big Changes Go Hand in Hand with Big Science Lead author: Kelly Devers, PhD (Urban Institute) The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss the implications of the Affordable Care Act, and other major pieces of legislation passed in 2009, for cancer care and related research. Continuing with these major areas and provisions, we illustrate and discuss how the implementation of these reforms occurs at multiple levels of the health system. General concepts must be translated into specific and often-complex, multilevel interventions that often vary based on states and local markets prior history, interpretation, and current capacities and constraints. Recommendations will be presented for how best to develop this multilevel infrastructure to ensure that the Big Changes underway are accompanied by a new, health services research Big Science approach. Conference Description The research conference sponsored by the National Cancer Institute assembled health care researchers, clinicians, and administrators to discuss the importance of multilevel approaches to improving health care quality in the United States. It occurred over two days and was associated with the American Society for Preventive Oncology's (ASPO) annual meeting in March of 2011. This presentation is one of 13 research papers. The conference offered platforms for participant discussion and engagement regarding the opportunities and challenges of multilevel intervention research.

What is HEALTH INSURANCE COOPERATIVE? What does HEALTH INSURANCE COOPERATIVE mean? HEALTH INSURANCE COOPERATIVE meaning - HEALTH INSURANCE COOPERATIVE definition - HEALTH INSURANCE COOPERATIVE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A health insurance cooperative is a cooperative entity that has the goal of providing health insurance and is also owned by the people that the organization insures. It is a form of mutual insurance. In the debate over healthcare reform, healthcare cooperatives are posited as an alternative to both publicly funded healthcare and single-payer healthcare. Cooperatives had been proposed as part of the healthcare reform debate in the United States by the Barack Obama administration as a possible compromise with Blue Dog Democrats (as well as with Republicans) in the search for universal healthcare in the United States. As proposed by President Obama and others, a future health insurance cooperative would not be government owned or run, but would instead receive an initial government investment and would then be operated as a non-profit organization. While a health insurance co-op is not strictly run by the government, hence not making it a public entity, it has been described by Senator Max Baucus of Montana, who is also the chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Finance as "tough enough to keep insurance companies’ feet to the fire." He has proposed a bill that includes a health insurance cooperative instead of the public option. There once were numerous rural health cooperatives established by the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Most of them closed or merged over the years, generally because they lacked a sufficient economy of scale (i.e., they were too small to function efficiently). Thus, co-operatives currently have so little market share as to be "invisible". The bill proposed by Max Baucus, the America’s Healthy Future Act, which uses health insurance cooperatives, was estimated by the Congressional Budget Office to cost $829 billion over ten years, and because of the increase in taxes of $210 billion over 10 years on premium insurance plans with high benefits, would lead to a reduction in the deficit of $81 billion. It would expand coverage to 94 percent of all eligible Americans. During a September 2009 report by John King of CNN, he stated that "supporters know, here in Minnesota and other farm states think co-ops could solve at least a big chunk of the healthcare access and affordability problem." He interviewed Bill Oemichen, President of the Cooperative Network, who remarked that "where co-ops are, they tend to be very, very high quality because it is the consumer who owns them, that is making sure that their health care provider is a quality health care provider." Oemichen also stated that 65% of those who switched from typical health insurance reported better coverage and service. In June 2009, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley told reporters, "if it’s all done entirely within the private sector, you know, it doesn’t seem to me it’s got the faults that you have... by having the government institute something." Steven Hill, a program director at the New America Foundation, has written for Salon.com that "co-ops may hold the key to a substantive compromise", comparing the U.S. reform proposals with health care in Germany. He argued that they can produce quality care for less money given that they would lack the profit motive, they would negotiate fees for service, and that they would end current market monopolies that insurance companies have in several states. Howard Dean and other Democrats have criticized abandoning the idea of a federally run, statewide, public option in favor of co-ops, questioning whether the co-ops would have enough negotiating power to compete with private health insurers. The activist groups SEIU and MoveOn.org have also stated their opposition. Prominent economists such as 2008 Nobel Economics Laureate Paul Krugman and Robert Reich have also questioned co-ops' ability to become large enough to reduce health care costs significantly. Thus, they both support the public option instead, which they state has strong opposition from the insurance industry.

How to Develop a Research Agenda to Support Sustainable Health Spending
Altarum Institute Center for Sustainable Health Spending and the Peter G Peterson Foundation present a Research Strategy Meeting: Building a Research Agenda to Support Sustainable Health Spending, June 6, 2011, Pew Charitable Trusts, Washington, DC. America's current fiscal path has become a matter of intense scrutiny within the government policy making, academic research, business, and philanthropic communities. Health care, particularly the Medicare program, is the principal source of projected future budget deficits. Moving toward a sustainable system will be a major goal for many years, regardless of the fate of the Affordable Care Act. This meeting explored paths to health care cost control, i.e., "bending the curve," without sacrificing quality or access, and served as a kick-off event to a new five-year, Altarum Institute initiative: the Center for Sustainable Health Spending "Critical Systems Issue." Harvard's Michael Chernew chaired the meeting which included presentations by Mark McClellan (Engelberg Center for Health Reform), Paul Ginsburg (Center for Studying Health System Change), Henry Aaron (Brookings Institution), Bob Kocher (McKinsey & Company, Inc.), Michael Chernew, and Jeff Lemieux (America's Health Insurance Plans). An invited group of distinguished experts provided critical analysis of the presentations, commented on the larger issues of health care cost control, and suggested promising avenues for future research.
Vanishing Public Administration: What Does It Mean and What Should We Do About It?
Price Governance Salon We are pleased to welcome Distinguished Professor and Editor-in-Chief of Public Administration Review, James L. Perry for his talk, Vanishing Public Administration: What Does It Mean and What Should We Do About It? Abstract: In a recent speech, Paul Volcker, former chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and a highly respected voice for public service, was asked to examine whether United States governing bodies are meeting the needs of our citizens.  His answer was definitive and short: “The current state of our governance bodies is poor. Quite simply, they are not meeting the needs of our citizens.” Although Volcker spread blame for the failing widely, one governance institution about which he is particularly concerned is our public administration.  Have we lost our capacity to do the business of government?  Are we no longer capable of executing our public policies?  My presentation seeks to illuminate the question: Is public administration vanishing?  In answering this question, I draw upon research and experience, especially my own of the last forty years.  I also draw from my special vantage point of the last three years as Editor in Chief of Public Administration Review, now in its 75th year of publication. James L. Perry is Distinguished Professor and Chancellor’s Professor of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, Bloomington, and World Class University Distinguished Professor at Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea. He is also Adjunct Professor of Philanthropic Studies and Political Science at Indiana University. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of Public Administration Review. Perry’s recent research focuses on performance pay in government, public service motivation, community and national service, and government reform.

It Depends What State You’re In: Policies and Politics of the US Health Care System | Part 1
Health care and political systems are deeply intertwined, with implications for the quality and equality of access to health care. This symposium explores the political dynamics of health care laws and the way they affect people not only as patients but also as citizens. Health professionals, policy and public health experts, economists, sociologists, and political scientists draw on comparative politics and policies of the states—alone and as part of a federalist system—and on international perspectives to explore the relationships between citizens and their health care.

They were raised in the same home, with the same parents, had the same IQ, same skills and same opportunities. Each was married and had two children. They were all carpenters making $25 per hour. While they were very similar in all these respects, they had different priorities. For example, Tom, chose to work 20 hours per week, while his brother, Dick worked 40 hours and Harry 60. It should also be noted that Harry's wife worked full time as an office manager for a salary of $50,000. Dick's wife sold real estate part time 10 hours a week and made $25,000 per year. Tom's wife did not work. Tom and Dick spent all of their family income. Since they paid into Social Security they figured, they didn't need to save for retirement. Harry and his wife, on the other hand, had, over many years, put away money each month and invested it in stocks and bonds. Here's how it worked out: Tom made $25,000 a year, Dick and his wife made $75,000 and Harry and his wife, $150,000. When a new housing development opened up in their community, the brothers decided to buy equally-priced homes on the same private street. One day the brothers decided to pool their funds for the purpose of improving their street. Concerned about crime and safety, and wanting a more attractive setting for their homes, the three families decided to install a security gate at the street's entrance; repave the street's surface; and enhance the lighting and landscaping. The work was done for a total cost of $30,000. Harry assumed they would divide the bill three ways, each brother paying $10,000. But Tom and Dick objected. "Why should we pay the same as you?" they said. "You make much more money than we do." Harry was puzzled. "What does that have to do with anything?" he asked. "My family makes more money because my wife and I work long hours, and because we have saved some of the money we've earned to make additional money from investments. Why should we be penalized for that?" "Harry, you can work and save all you like" Tom countered. "But my wife and I want to enjoy ourselves now, not 25 years from now." "Fine, Tom. Do what you want. It's a free country. But why should I have to pay for that? "I can't believe your being so... unbrotherly," Tom argued. "You have a lot of money and I don't. I thought you'd be more generous." At this point, Dick, the peacemaker in the family, entered the conversation. "I've got an idea," Dick said. "Our combined income is $250,000, and $30,000 is 12 percent of that amount. Why don't we each pay that percentage of our income? Under that formula, Tom would pay $3,000, I would pay $9,000, and Harry would pay $18,000." "I have a much better idea," said Tom. "And one that's fairer than what you're proposing." For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/progressive-income-tax-tale-three-brothers

Implementation Activities - Health Reform 101
April 14, 2011 Marian Mulkey focused her remarks on present day health care costs and coverage, public and private coverage expansion and related changes in benefits, and access to care in the ACA and provided an update on implementation activities in California in these areas. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), passed into law just over a year ago, identified significant responsibilities for both the federal government and the states prior to full implementation in 2014. The ACA includes many short-term changes intended to expand and improve health insurance, including new consumer protections for people with private coverage; tax credits for small, low-wage businesses; and a new program that allows those with preexisting conditions to purchase health insurance. At the same time, investments are being made to strengthen prevention and public health and support community clinics. In the longer term, broad expansion of enrollment in both private health insurance plans and public programs is anticipated. This CHCF Sacramento briefing provided a basic overview of the ACA and its impact on California as the state implements health reform. This briefing is intended for those not closely following the ins and outs of the ACA or implementation activities in California.

Stanford Health Policy Forum: Controlling the Cost of Healthcare
The United States health care system is a $3 trillion enterprise, the largest in the developed world. Yet Americans often experience more severe access and quality problems, and spend much more for the same procedures and medications, than patients in other countries. Projections of the future cost of health care are unsustainable, yet many well-intended cost-control efforts have been ineffective. This forum features two renowned experts who will discuss the causes of and potential solutions to the extraordinary cost of American health care. Physician, journalist and Stanford alum Elisabeth Rosenthal has drawn national attention to the issue through her widely praised “Paying Till It Hurts” series in the New York Times. She will be joined by Professor Doug Owens, the director of Stanford’s Center for Health Policy and an expert in health care cost-effectiveness research. Speakers: Doug Owens, Elisabeth Rosenthal, Paul Costello http://med.stanford.edu/healthpolicyforum.html

All Payer Claims Databases (APCD): Lessons from Other States
There is significant interest among health plans, employers, and consumers to establish a central data source in California to track health care utilization and cost information. Thirteen other states have already taken the plunge to create all-payer claims databases (APCD), which are used for analysis, public reporting of data, research related to health reform implementation, and development of payment model alternatives. Meanwhile, the National Governors Association is pushing for the creation of APCDs in all 50 states. In this briefing, presenters discussed research examining the claims database models in those 13 states, as well as the issues likely to be faced in developing a model for California. The presenters reviewed the current uses of such a data utility in other states and explored options for California, including alternative financing mechanisms. The speakers were: •Patrick Miller, research associate professor, New Hampshire Institute for Health Policy and Practice (University of New Hampshire) and chair, APCD Council •Jonah Frohlich, managing director, Manatt Health Solutions Highlights of the presentation were: •Patrick Miller provided a definition of APCDs, an overview of national activities around all-payer claims databases, sources of data, state activities, and examples of how the databases are being used. He concluded with lessons that have been learned so far and challenges facing APCDs. •Jonah Frohlich described his work on a project for the California HealthCare Foundation to assess the feasibility, opportunities, and challenges of designing an APCD in California. His findings are expected to be completed and released by May 2011. Document Downloads visit: www.chcf.org/sacramento
Webinar: How State Health Agencies Can Use Community Health Assessments to Promote Health Equity
Webinar: How State Health Agencies Can Use Community Health Assessments to Promote Health Equity (Recorded June 24, 2014) Completing a Community Health Needs Assessment is a federal requirement for private, non-profit hospitals. Part of the Affordable Care Act, the Community Health Needs Assessment is additional criteria for hospitals to maintain their tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) status. This requirement is an important opportunity to address the factors that have an impact on health disparities and health equity in a community. This ASTHO-produced webinar features presentations from state health agency leaders and community health assessment experts to highlight current programs, policies and/or mechanisms to promote health equity and eliminate health disparities, with a focus on health reform. The audience for this webinar will be state and territorial health officials, their leadership team, directors of state offices of health equity/minority health and primary care, and partner organizations. Objectives: • Describe examples of community health assessments that have initiated, facilitated, and/or supported efforts to promote equity in communities. • Describe strategies, resources, and tools used to promote equity through community health assessments. • Increase sharing of best and promising practices in health equity strategies. Speakers: • Kevin Barnett, Senior Investigator, Public Health Institute • Gayle Nelson, Director, Hospital Community Benefit Program, The Hilltop Institute • Geoff Wilkinson, Director for Policy and Planning, Massachusetts Department of Public Health • Fran Phillips, Independent Consultant

Health Care Policy Under the Next Administration
The ACA, Medicare, Medicaid and the Future of Health Reform
It Depends What State You’re In: Policies and Politics of the US Health Care System | Part 2
Health care and political systems are deeply intertwined, with implications for the quality and equality of access to health care. This symposium explores the political dynamics of health care laws and the way they affect people not only as patients but also as citizens. Health professionals, policy and public health experts, economists, sociologists, and political scientists draw on comparative politics and policies of the states—alone and as part of a federalist system—and on international perspectives to explore the relationships between citizens and their health care.

American Academy of Actuaries' April 4, 2011, Briefing on "Understanding Retirement Risk" - Part 4
Presentation slides: http://bit.ly/fQJqrz American Academy of Actuaries pension experts addressed the risks inherent with retirement plan designs and the implications for retirement planning and public policy in this April 4, 2011, Capitol Hill Briefing, "Pension Risk and Your Retirement: Understanding Retirement Risk and Overcoming Challenges through Public Policy Options." Noting that half the population outlives its life expectancy but that most retirees plan for their assets to last only through their life expectancy, presenters Ethan Kra and Lane West detailed a lengthy list of risks to a safe and comfortable retirement, including investment risk, longevity risk, inflation risk, expense risk, and interest rate risk. Other threats include timing of retirement, not saving enough, not saving early enough, leakage from defined contribution (DC) plans when employees roll over savings into an IRA, and being out of the work force during a portion of one's prime earning years. "Public policy should work to promote lifetime income," Kra explained. Effective public policy reforms that could achieve that goal include: • Providing incentives for workers to increase retirement savings; • Discouraging lump sum distributions from (DC) plans and encouraging annuitization of lump sum distributions; • Penalizing leakage of funds at the time of DC rollovers or even mandating rollovers; • Supporting pooling of risk; and, • Promoting lifetime income arrangements such as annuities.

The Future of the Affordable Care Act: What Happens Next?
The future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is unclear. Republicans have decided not to vote this week on the Graham-Cassidy bill, but promised to revisit ACA repeal-and-replace efforts. Democrats announced recently a single-payer health care proposal. And another hurdle for the ACA looms. With open enrollment beginning on November 1, questions remain about the stability of the ACA insurance exchange marketplace, particularly around the fate of cost-sharing subsidies and other factors that affect enrollment, affordability and access to varied plans. This Forum brought together health and public policy experts from across diverse perspectives to look at what’s next for the Affordable Care Act. What can Americans expect and where does health care reform go from here? This Forum event was presented jointly with Reuters on September 27, 2017. Watch the entire series at ForumHSPH.org.

Targeting the Social Determinants of Disparities in Health - Urban Health Disparities Summit 2013
Keynote and Urban Health Lecture by Dr. David Satcher, M.D. Introduced by Dr. Richard Rothenberg, M.D., Regents' Professor of public health at Georgia State University. Public Health at Georgia State University Our goal for the Urban Health Disparities Summit 2013 was to showcase national and local scholarship on understanding and ameliorating health disparities, as well as to forage a collaborative plan of action to reduce these disparities. Every person experiences conditions in their social environment, physical environment and access to health care that have huge influences on their health. The differences in these experiences caused by race, socioeconomic status, gender and place can lead to differences in health outcomes called disparities. These influences and the outcomes often cluster and act together in a way that actually worsens the overall health status. We call these interactions and the resulting outcomes syndemics of disparity. This is the overall theme of the Center of Excellence on Health Disparities Research (CoEx). Dr. David Satcher M.D. is director of The Satcher Health Leadership Institute, which was established in 2006 at the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors of Johnson & Johnson, MetLife and the CDC Foundation. He also serves locally on the board of United Way of Greater Atlanta and The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta. In 1998, Satcher was sworn in as the 16th Surgeon General of the United States. He also served as Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services from February 1998 to January 2001, making him only the second person in history to have held both positions simultaneously. His tenure of public service also includes serving as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and administrator of the Toxic Substances and Disease Registry from 1993 to 1998. He is the first person to have served as director of the CDC and then surgeon general of the United States.

11. The Sanitary Movement and the 'Filth Theory of Disease'
Epidemics in Western Society Since 1600 (HIST 234) The sanitary movement was an approach to public health first developed in England in the 1830s and '40s. With increasing industrialization and urbanization, the removal of filth from towns and cities became a major focus in the struggle against infectious diseases. As pioneered by Edwin Chadwick, the sanitary movement also embraced an explicit political objective, according to which urban cleansing took on a figurative as well as a literal sense, and was seen as a potential solution to the threat posed by the "dangerous classes." European cities followed suit, with Paris and Naples embarking on wholesale rebuilding projects, necessitating large-scale state intervention. Although these technological reforms marked an undeniable step forward for public health, they often also entailed the exclusion of other strategies, such as progressive economic and educational reforms. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
