Survey: Many Louisiana doctors would cut care to the poor because of reduction in Medicaid reimbursements

by The Associated Press

A Louisiana State Medical Society survey finds that many physicians will cut down on their Medicaid care because of a recent 10 percent cut in the money they receive for the patients.

Two-thirds of those responding to an e-mail survey of society members released Monday said the cuts would prompt changes: either they plan to stop treating Medicaid patients altogether or they intend to stop accepting new Medicaid patients. The Medicaid rate reductions were adopted as part of the Jindal administration’ s process to help balance the more than $28 billion budget for the fiscal year that began July 1. Medicaid — the government-run insurance program for the poor, elderly and disabled — provides health care for about a fourth of Louisiana residents. Access for patients to health care in Louisiana has been a problem, and the cuts to the rates paid to doctors who care for Medicaid patients will further exacerbate the shortage of care, said Roger D. Smith, a doctor and medical society president. Smith said Medicaid patients will have increased difficulty finding or keeping a physician and will become more dependent on expensive hospital emergency rooms for care. “These cuts are penny-wise and pound-foolish, ” said Dr. Vincent Culotta, the medical society’s legislative chairman. State Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary Alan Levine said he wants more details about the survey participants because many who think they may be affected by the cuts may not be. Levine said the 10 percent cut does not apply to any physician service for children, regardless of the medical specialty. But Levine said Louisiana has had some of the highest doctor reimbursement rates in the U.S., and he said the reimbursement rates remain higher than they were two years ago. In the survey results, 34 percent of physicians said they will continue to see Medicaid patients but will not accept new ones, 18.6 percent will stop accepting referral of Medicaid patients and 15.6 percent will stop seeing all Medicaid patients. Medical Society spokeswoman Sadie Wilks said the survey involved 202 respondents from a list of about 3,000 doctors. ____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _______

13 Things a Burglar Will Never Tell You
Posted by: Dr. Mercola
September 15 2009
burglar, thief, theft, victimThe information for this comes from crime experts and convicted burglars in North Carolina, Oregon, California, and Kentucky. Here’s what a burglar won’t tell you:
  1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.
  2. Thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.
  3. Love the flowers — they tell me you have taste, and taste means there are nice things inside. Those yard toys your kids leave out always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.
  4. I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.
  5. If it snows while you’re out of town, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks into the house.
  6. If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it’s set.
  7. A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom. It’s not a bad idea to put motion detectors up there too.
  8. It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door — understandable. But I don’t take a day off because of bad weather.
  9. I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions somewhere or offer to clean your gutters — don’t take me up on it.
  10. I always check dresser drawers, the bedside table, and the medicine cabinet.
  11. However, I almost never go into kids’ rooms.
  12. I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But if it’s not bolted down, I’ll take it with me.
  13. A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm system. You can also buy a $35 device that works on a timer and simulates the flickering glow of a television.

  5. If it snows while you’re out of town, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks into the house.
  6. If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it’s set.
  7. A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom. It’s not a bad idea to put motion detectors up there too.
  8. It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door — understandable. But I don’t take a day off because of bad weather.
  9. I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions somewhere or offer to clean your gutters — don’t take me up on it.
  10. I always check dresser drawers, the bedside table, and the medicine cabinet.
  11. However, I almost never go into kids’ rooms.
  12. I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But if it’s not bolted down, I’ll take it with me.
  13. A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm system. You can also buy a $35 device that works on a timer and simulates the flickering glow of a television.
