  • Health care divide leaves tax on path to reinstatement
    By BOB SALSBERG, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 13, 2017

    BOSTON (AP) — The industry that makes medical devices from artificial hips to miniature pumps for IV drips is looking for a fallback plan to repeal a widely reviled sales tax that almost met its end in GOP health care legislation.The 2.3 percent excise, one of several taxes and fees in the Affordable Care Act that pay for expanded insurance coverage, has been the subject of ferocious lobbying by manufacturers seeking its permanent death.The tax covers a range of medical equipment sold to hospitals and physicians but excludes consumer items such as eyeglasses, hearing aids and diabetes kits.Various failed versions of Republican bills to repeal and replace the Obama health care law would have killed the tax that is also unpopular with many Democrats in Congress, some representing states with thriving clusters of medical device firms.Proponents of the tax, originally estimated to raise $29 billion in net revenue over 10 years, contend industry sales can only benefit from more Americans having access to health insurance.Clinical Innovations, a privately-held medical device company in Salt Lake City, said tax savings of about $500,000 a year helped it speed up the redesign and launch of a balloon-like device that helps doctors manage potentially fatal occurrences of postpartum hemorrhaging in women.

  • AP FACT CHECK: Trump overstates progress at Veterans Affairs
    By HOPE YEN, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 27, 2017

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump paints a rosy picture of an improved Department of Veterans Affairs under his watch where accessing electronic medical records is "so easy and so good" and health care is freely available without any delays.At a campaign-style event in Ohio this week, Trump's claims of progress were so overstated that even his own VA secretary, David Shulkin — who stood right next to him — would have to disagree."Since my first day in office, we've taken one action after another to make sure that our veterans get the care they so richly deserve," Trump said.[...] the multibillion-dollar IT initiative Trump cites has yet to be even budgeted, and an alternative program of private-sector care he describes is running out of money and needs reauthorization by Congress.While Shulkin announced plans last month to overhaul electronic records by replacing VA's aging information technology system, the multiyear effort has barely even begun.Put in place after a 2014 wait-time scandal at the Phoenix VA, the program allows veterans to see outside doctors if they must wait more than 30 days for an appointment or drive more than 40 miles to a VA facility.Congress is now scrambling to provide billions in emergency money to fill the gap, or risk disruptions in veterans' care.According to Shulkin's "State of the VA" report, the VA is "still in critical condition," with veterans waiting more than 60 days for new appointments at about 30 VA facilities nationwide.On quality of care, the VA's inspector general issued urgent action reports in April and May, warning that patients at the Washington, D.C., VA medical center were being put at unnecessary risk of harm due to bad inventory practices, like potentially dirty syringes and medical supply shortages.By late 2016, the department's blog announced that the goal of providing same-day primary and mental-health care when medically necessary would be achieved at every VA medical center by year's end.A Dec. 23, 2016, article in the Harvard Business Review cites new same-day services at all VA hospitals as evidence of notable progress under former VA Secretary Bob McDonald "and his team."

  • 3 Republicans face off in Utah primary for vacant House seat
    By MICHELLE L. PRICE, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 15, 2017

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Three GOP candidates hoping to replace former Rep. Jason Chaffetz in Congress face off in a primary election Tuesday after weeks trying to burnish their conservative credentials and fend off attack ads from deep-pocketed outside groups.Out-of-state organizations and political action committees have spent about $900,000 in Utah's race — on top of about $600,000 in campaign contributions collected by the three Republicans running for Utah's 3rd Congressional District.Herrod, 51, and Ainge, 33, both voted for Trump, but all three candidates say they support the president's agenda — including plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border, revamp the tax code and repeal the Affordable Care Act.Curtis, the target of most of the out-of-state attack ads, has faced suspicion and criticism from some Republicans for his 2000 run as a Democrat for the state Legislature and his time leading a county Democratic party.Several third-party candidates are also running, including Jim Bennett, the son of the late former U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett, a longtime Republican who lost re-election in 2010, the first of several GOP candidates ousted in tea-party fueled wave.

  • Judge retires after leave for alcoholism care
    By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017

    (AP) — A federal judge in Louisiana has retired several months after taking medical leave for treatment of severe alcoholism, a condition that came to light only after a series of mysterious interruptions in her courtroom.Court documents released at the AP's request showed that even basic requirements — like telling jurors the burden of proof lies with prosecutors, not the defense — weren't followed.In December, a criminal trial in Minaldi's courtroom was cut short without explanation before a jury could be picked to hear a child pornography case.Dashcam video obtained by local news organizations showed her arguing with an officer and refusing to get out of her car before police arrested her outside her Lake Charles home.In the lawsuit, Kay said Minaldi was diagnosed with severe Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, a degenerative brain disorder linked to alcohol abuse.
