REPORT TO THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE BY THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

REPORT TO THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE BY THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

Prognosis – Physician Supply in New York State: Physician shortages within the state are unlikely to ameliorate any time soon. Although the number of physicians practicing in New York continues to grow, so is the demand for physician services, especially in light of likely increases in insurance coverage from national health care reform and the aging of the population. A 2009 supply/demand analysis by CHWS found that the greatest gaps between physician supply and demand are projected in regions where demand was forecast to grow most rapidly, and that current shortages will only worsen. New York Physician Supply and Demand Through 2030, a comprehensive report on the New York State physician workforce provided by CHWS, forecasts a gap of between 2,500 and 17,000 physicians in New York State by 2030. 8

8 Office of the New York State Comptroller guidance. Consequently, there were errors in the dates of services provided that could have resulted in excess payments of about $2.6 million more than the claim’s correct amount. In New York State, there are eight hemophilic treatment centers that have been designated as federally-funded 340B entities in accordance with the Public Health Services Act. The eight centers are eligible to participate in the 340B Drug Pricing Program (or PHS Pricing) that requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to the covered entities at reduced prices. However, one hospital repeatedly submitted claims and received payments for hemophilic blood products at costs that exceeded the PHS price limits. We alerted Department officials of the overpayments, and they initiated a review of hemophilic-related payments to the hospital dating back to 2002. As a result of their review, the officials identified $1,010,357 in overpayments for 1,089 excessively priced claims.

BWSP also provided periodic updated lists of Public Water Systems and locations for filling emergency drinking water tankers to the Health Desk at the State EOC. Much of this information had been gathered pre-event. A suggestion was also made to pre- identify water tanker disinfection locations, some which were identified during response activities.

Testimony of the Iroquois Healthcare Alliance. New York State Senate Finance Committee and New York State Assembly Ways & Means Committee

My colleagues from HANYS and GNYHA have given you extensive and thorough testimony as to the problems of the New York State Medicaid system. They have also presented rational solutions that they agreed to as members of the Medicaid Redesign Team to reform Medicaid. The Iroquois Healthcare Alliance supports many of the recommendations made by HANYS and GNYHA, and will work with them, and with you, to see that these reforms become reality. I will not repeat their testimony, but would like to speak briefly on the concerns of Upstate hospitals, nursing homes, and physicians.

New York State Mandated Health Insurance Benefits

New York State Mandated Health Insurance Benefits

Most insured individuals receive their health insurance from employment. As healthcare costs increase with each incremental cost, some employers will choose not to offer coverage. This is especially true of small employers, as a majority of small employers who do not offer health insurance cite affordability as a major issue. A survey released in February 2001 by the New York chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business revealed that 63% of small business owners say the cost of health care is one of the three most serious problems they face. 6 This was reinforced in January 2002 when a Federal Reserve Bank of New York survey showed that 63% of small business owners in upstate New York cite health insurance premiums as a barrier to growth. 7

Task 9. Natural Resources A natural resources assessment is conducted when a natural resource is present on or near a development site and the Proposed Project may involve the direct or indirect disturbance of that resource. The CEQR Technical Manual defines natural resources as water resources, including surface water bodies and groundwater; wetlands, including freshwater and tidal wetlands; terrestrial resources, such as grasslands and thickets; shoreline resources, such as beaches, dunes, and bluffs; gardens and other ornamental landscaping; and natural resources that may be associated with built resources, such as old piers and other waterfront structures. The Project Site is developed with a paved parking lot with landscaping around the periphery of the paved area and along the street. As such, natural resources within the Project Site are limited to the few urban-adapted species of wildlife that would utilize building exteriors as habitat and are ubiquitous throughout the city. Specifically, these include house sparrows (Passer domesticus), rock pigeons (Columba livia), European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris), and Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus). The Proposed Project would not have the potential to result in significant adverse impacts to the urban tolerant wildlife species using the Project Site. While individual wildlife may be affected should suitable habitat not be available nearby, the loss of some individuals would not adversely affect populations of these widespread urban-tolerant species within the metropolitan region. Tree replacement, protection, and transplanting would comply with the City’s applicable rules and regulations. Trees under the jurisdiction of NYCDPR, such as those along the street, may not be removed without a permit pursuant to Title 18 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York. Chapter 5 of Title 56 of the Rules of the City of New York establishes rules for valuing trees that are approved for removal in order to determine the appropriate number of replacement trees.

THE COMPLAINT INVESTIGATION PROCESS Complaints can be initiated in person, by mail or phone, or submitted using the online Nursing Home Complaint Form. Most complaints are received by phone through the Centralized Complaint Hotline (1-888-201-4563); however, many are now initiated using the online Nursing Home Complaint Form, which is available on the DOH Nursing Home Profile site. A large number of the complaints received – about 41 percent in 2010 -- are incidents self-reported by the nursing homes. Public Health Law section 2803-d requires designated persons in nursing homes to report any instance in which the facility has determined there is reasonable cause to suspect that a resident has suffered abuse, neglect or mistreatment. All provider complaints received within DOH’s jurisdiction and authority are investigated.

Described below are the major initiatives initiated in calendar year 2012 to assist with complaint activities: • The program further enhanced its online process for nursing homes to electronically report incidents. This process has greatly improved the complaint program’s ability to manage facility-reported incidents. The new system was implemented effective October 17, 2011, and further enhanced in calendar year 2012. Forty-three percent of the 4,410 incidents closed last year were made no action necessary by central office staff, since these cases didn’t need further resolution. This is in large part due to clear reporting requirements, and more thorough information submitted on behalf of nursing home providers, which allows most incidents to be reviewed initially by central office staff. This allows both central office and regional office staff to focus on more egregious allegations.

The first consideration to make is budgetary. What was the budget number you determined in the last section? What exchange plan tiers fall within that constraint? The next is your health situation. If you’re very sickly and going to the doctor on a regular basis then consider a Gold or Platinum plan with no or a very low deductible and minimal office copays. It will cost more money per month than a lower tiered plan, but in the long run it proves to be more economical. Below you can find the numbers for each metal tier’s ratio of monthly premium to out of pocket costs.

Health effects: All children should be tested for lead poisoning at ages one and two. Other children up to six years old should also be tested if their doctors think they are at risk. If lead gets into a child’s body, it could cause a lower IQ, kidney damage, hearing loss, headaches, slowed growth, anemia, or behavior problems. Children are at higher risk from lead exposure because they put hands and other objects in their mouths, their growing bodies absorb more lead, and their brains and nervous systems are more sensitive to the damaging effects of lead. Lead also can be harmful to adults, and pregnant women should be espe- cially careful.
