- Feinstein revs up the opposition to GOP Senate health care plan
By John Wildermuth - Friday Jul 7, 2017
Feinstein revs up the opposition to GOP Senate health care planRepublican efforts to replace President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act would devastate children’s hospitals across California and make it harder for millions of people — young and old — to get the care they need, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said in San Francisco Friday.The GOP plan before the Senate “provides tax cuts for the very wealthy” at the expense of health care for children, Feinstein told an audience of about 100 doctors, nurses, health care professionals and parents of patients at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco.Feinstein joined hospital officials on a morning tour of the sprawling Mission Bay facility, talking with doctors, nurses, parents and patients, before returning for a 45-minute pep rally aimed at revving up opposition to the GOP attack on the Affordable Care Act.The focus of concern is the GOP effort to trim Medicaid, which Obama’s 2010 health care plan expanded to cover millions more people.In California, more than one-third of the state’s 39 million residents are on Medi-Cal, along with 1 out of every 2 children, 60 percent of nursing home residents and half the people with disabilities.Feinstein also heard from three parents, who she described as “true American warrior women,” who talked about what the children’s hospital — and the Medi-Cal money to pay for needed care — meant to their children.Kristin Chaset talked about her nearly 2-year-old daughter, Megan, who had heart surgery five hours after birth and spent more than 10 months in the hospital before finally going home to continuing nursing care and therapy.Sally McDonald spoke of her daughter, Maggie, who underwent 80 surgeries for a congenital disorder, but was provided the resources that enabled her to graduate from Mission High School before she died at age 20.In a statement Thursday, Feinstein called the GOP health plan “an immoral policy.”

- US charging 412 in health fraud schemes worth $1.3 billion
By SADIE GURMAN, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
Sessions called the collective action the "largest health care fraud takedown operation in American history" and said it indicates that some doctors, nurses and pharmacists "have chosen to violate their oaths and put greed ahead of their patients."Health care fraud sweeps like Thursday's happen each year across the country, but law enforcement officials continue to grapple over the best way to fight the problem.The people charged were illegally billing Medicare, Medicaid and the health insurance program that serves members of the armed forces, retired service members and their families, the Justice Department said.
- Medicaid cut in GOP health bill worries the nursing home set
By TERRY SPENCER, Associated Press - Saturday Jul 8, 2017
The Senate Republicans' plan to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act would cut projected Medicaid spending over the next decade by 25 percent.In the case of Bernard's 83-year-old mother, retired teacher Franceen Golditch, the $4,000 that she receives each month from her pension and Social Security goes almost entirely to the nursing home.While the federal-state Medicaid program is most often associated with poor children and single mothers, almost two-thirds of its spending goes to the elderly and the disabled, even though they make up just 1 in 4 recipients.In part because of the Medicaid cuts, the GOP bill lacks the votes to pass in the Senate, which is expected to take up the measure again after Congress' weeklong July Fourth recess.Even with those cuts, nursing home patients would continue to receive significant assistance because federal Medicaid spending would grow by 20 percent over the next decade from its current level, said Zach Hunter, a spokesman for the GOP-led House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which helped write the House version of the bill.Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Center, an advocacy group that opposes the bill, said substantial cuts eventually would hurt those who rely on nursing home assistance.Medicare, the federal health insurance program that primarily covers people 65 and older, does not cover long-term nursing home care.In 45 states and the District of Columbia, Medicaid also covers some senior citizens who are in assisted living centers or need home health aides.
