Comprehensive health care coverage for more than 800,000 low-income people in New York and Minnesota, who pay a fraction of the typical cost of a marketplace plan, may be in jeopardy after the federal government partially cut funding this year.The Basic Health Program, in which these consumers are enrolled, was created under the Affordable Care Act to provide another coverage option for people with incomes up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level ($24,280 for an individual in 2018) who would otherwise qualify for subsidized marketplace coverage. Only New York and Minnesota have set up such programs.The funding dispute is tied to a high-profile decision by President Trump to stop paying cost-sharing reduction subsidies, which reduce the deductibles and out-of-pocket costs for people in marketplace plans whose incomes are up to 250 percent of the federal poverty level (about $30,000 for one person). Money that would have paid for cost-sharing reduction subsidies also helps fund the Basic Health Program in New York and Minnesota.These plans must be as comprehensive and affordable as marketplace plans, but for many they’re significantly cheaper, with monthly premiums of either zero or $20 in New York and up to $80 in Minnesota, along with a very small or no deductible and nominal copayments.In November, for example, when May Brown lost her job as a produce repacker — breaking down 40-pound boxes of fruits and vegetables into 10-pound boxes for grocery stores — she also lost her job-based health coverage. On the advice of a friend, the 62-year-old signed up for MinnesotaCare this month. Her $50 monthly premium is about half what she was paying for coverage on the job.Brown, who lives in St. Paul, says she is pretty healthy. But having this coverage, she says, gives her peace of mind.”You never know. Life is unpredictable,” she says. “I like to have something.”Under the Basic Health Program, the federal government is responsible for paying states 95 percent of the amount it would have paid in premium subsidies and cost-sharing reduction payments on the marketplace for these enrollees.In December, the Department of Health and Human Services notified the two states it would withhold the cost-sharing reduction portion of the payments — nearly $300 million in the first quarter of 2018, about a quarter of the total amount expected.Over the course of a year, the amount withheld will exceed $1 billion.When it cut back on funding of the Basic Health Program, the administration cited its October 2017 decision to eliminate cost-sharing reduction payments to insurers.Last month, the attorneys general of the two states filed suit to restore the federal funding.Noting that New York’s Essential Plan covers more than 700,000 low-income New Yorkers, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a press release, “I won’t stand by as the federal government continues to renege on its most basic obligations in a transparent attempt to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.”In their lawsuit, Schneiderman and Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson argue that, among other things, the administration’s decision to cut off CSR payments is procedurally flawed and violates its obligations under the health law. They want the court to restore the states’ Basic Health Program funding.Regardless of the lawsuit’s outcome, officials in both states have offered assurances that the program is safe — for now.In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s budget included sufficient funds to leave the Basic Health Program intact for this year.Officials at the Minnesota Department of Human Services released a written statement, maintaining that “people enrolled in MinnesotaCare should feel confident in their coverage, based on current information.”Under the health law, any state can offer coverage under the Basic Health Program. One possible reason New York and Minnesota adopted the program is because they were already covering many in the target population through Medicaid and typically sharing the cost equally with the federal government. Under the Basic Health Program, the state’s funding responsibility drops to just 5 percent.So what happens next year? If federal funding isn’t restored, advocates are concerned that costs may rise and coverage shrink.”It could trigger major changes to the eligibility structure, the benefits or increases in premiums,” says Maureen O’Connell, president of Health Access MN, which helps people enroll in marketplace coverage.Elisabeth Benjamin says she is “really worried” for the program next year if the courts don’t order the federal government to start making payments.Benjamin, the vice president for health initiatives at the Community Service Society of New York, an advocacy group, says there is a snowball effect as states grapple with the delayed approval of Children’s Health Insurance Program funding for low-income kids amid continued uncertainty over federal funding for community health centers.”It’s terrifying how much the feds can do, particularly for states like New York that are so reliant on federal funding,” Benjamin says.Kaiser Health News is an editorially independent news service that is part of the nonpartisan Henry J.

Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 22 2019When you hear about dollar discount stores, the first thought that comes to mind likely isn’t groceries for you and your family.But it might be time to consider dollar-discount stores as a stop for your grocery needs, says a new UNLV study, which found that the quality of fruits and vegetables at dollar stores is just as good as regular grocery store produce.The findings are especially good news for the 17.3 million people nationwide who live in low-income areas more than one mile from grocery stores — areas referred to as food deserts by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Dollar discount stores may exist in these areas and be an alternative for residents who currently access fast food or sugary and savory nutrient-deficient snacks found at gas stations which can lead to obesity or other health problems.But lead author and UNLV School of Community Health Sciences professor Courtney Coughenour says the data, published this winter in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, benefits budget-conscious shoppers, too.The research team championed channel blurring, the rising phenomenon of retailers diversifying their inventory to feature products commonly found elsewhere — think drug stores selling toys, grocery stores hawking patio furniture, or dollar stores incorporating a food section — with helping families across socioeconomic lines fill the nutrition gap.”These findings are important for public health, as our study indicates that channel blurring at the dollar discount stores results in access to healthy, quality produce and affordable food options,” the researchers wrote. “Because cost, quality, and accessibility are established barriers to healthy eating, dollar discount stores can serve as community assets that increase access to quality, affordable food.”Related StoriesAXT enhances cellular research product portfolio with solutions from StemBioSysTAU’s new Translational Medical Research Center acquires MILabs’ VECTor PET/SPECT/CTOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchAmong the highlights: “We are conditioned to believe that cheap, quality produce is too good to be true. If the quality is good, and it’s cheap, why not take advantage of the lower price?” said Coughenour.Coughenour said her team’s research continues, but in the meantime, they called on public health campaigns to help combat consumer misconceptions associating lower prices with inferior quality and to supply brand loyalists with previous research which shows dollar store brands are typically equivalent nutritionally.They also urged outreach programs that cater to low-income populations, such as food assistance recipients, to recognize dollar discount stores as part of the food system and consider partnering with them in their efforts to improve public health. Source:https://www.unlv.edu/news/article/dollar-store-diet-produce-quality-matches-traditional-chains UNLV’s study compared the color, cleanliness, freshness, and firmness of fruits and vegetables in 14 dollar-discount stores to 40 traditional food outlets across the Las Vegas metro area. While there was slightly less variety of produce at dollar stores (for example, none of the dollar stores carried pears), there was no significant difference in quality. “The dollar store fruits may be ripe, and you’ll have to eat it soon, but it’s completely good quality,” Coughenour said. Eighty-four percent of produce and 89.5 percent of non-produce items were significantly less expensive at dollar stores. The only items that were more expensive at the dollar stores were whole wheat and white bread.

(Editor)Apr 10 2019DNA methylation is a mechanism that regulates whether genes are “on” or “off” and is influenced by hereditary and environmental factors, as well as lifestyle and nutritional habits.This research evidences that methylation levels in the gene involved in lipid metabolism -Lipoprotein lipase (LPL)- are higher in obese people with a metabolic disease in contrast to healthy people. “Since this gene is essential to decide whether the fat ingested is stored or consumed by the tissues, a dysfunction of this gene would cause high levels of triglycerides in blood”, explains the main author, Daniel Castellano.Related StoriesHIV DNA persists in spinal fluid despite treatment, linked to cognitive impairmentUCR biomedical professor to investigate how body’s cannabis-like molecules influence obesityResearch team receives federal grant to study obesity in children with spina bifidaIn this regard, experts alert that dysfunctional lipid metabolism in obesity is associated with a higher systemic inflammation, diabetes, cardiovascular disease or even cancer.Likewise, this study also describes a lower DNA methylation in a gene related to inflammatory processes, such as the tumor necrosis factor (TNF), which may cause a higher functioning of this gene, which, in turn, may affect the pro-inflammatory condition observed in obese people with a metabolic disease.Consequently, the main researchers of the study, Fernando Cardona and María Isabel Queipo, both members of Group A02 of the Biomedical Research Institute of Malaga (IBIMA), coordinated by Francisco José Tinahones, conclude that the methylation levels of genes related to lipid metabolism and inflammation are altered in obese patients with a metabolic disease, which partially explains the development of this disease.The importance of epigenetic regulationThus, they point out the importance of epigenetic regulation in the origin of metabolic diseases and affirm that the study of epigenetic mechanisms is essential for developing new therapeutic strategies to face these pathologies, as well as for determining lifestyle habits that may prevent these alterations in DNA methylation.The results of this study have been published in the scientific journal Journal of Clinical Medicine.

All rights reserved. Facebook’s Zuckerberg to give Harvard graduation speech The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative intend to explore a number of potential pilot projects.They’ll focus on math, writing and brain functions—key areas of classroom learning that they note are crucial for academic success.The effort is now seeking information and ideas from across sectors, from education and academia to business, technology and medicine. Future investments based on that information are expected, but no dollar amount has been set.The idea that disadvantaged children struggle to learn because of poor executive brain function involving memory, thinking flexibility, and behavioral issues related to autism and other attention disorders has long been lamented by social workers and health advocates.The joint project by Gates and Zuckerberg details possible ways to mitigate those shortcomings.Among the ideas is using games and technology simulations to support teachers and family, and tracking progress in certain vulnerable student populations such as kids with disabilities or those who are learning English as a second language.Leaders of the effort say technology is not a primary focus, but they recognize the role it can play. The new endeavor marks the latest effort by deep-pocketed philanthropists who have tried with little success and much controversy to change entire school systems.In some ways, it advances the reform agendas of the philanthropists, including helping low-performing students catch up to their potentially more prosperous peers and using classroom technology for digital or personalized learning.Gates, the world’s top philanthropist, recently announced more support for students with disabilities, issues involving American poverty and Alzheimer’s disease research.Zuckerberg idolizes Gates as an inspiration in professional and philanthropic work. But their representatives rejected any notion that their effort on learning is connected to their respective business roles as Facebook CEO and Microsoft founder.Microsoft announced a $25 million initiative on Monday to use artificial intelligence to build better technology for people with disabilities.
