For David, the problem is that the U.S. has promised its people way more than it can afford to pay. The debt clock says $30 trillion, which is a mind-boggling figure. According to other experts, however, the real number is actually higher than that. It is close to the $125 trillion mark. Citing Dr. Larry Kotlikoff from Boston University, David reveals that, according to a fiscal gap accounting, the projection over the next 75 years isn't $30 trillion, nor $125 trillion… it sees true national debt in the U.S. sitting much closer to $239 trillion. One of the key questions David brings up is: for a retiring generation of Baby Boomers who saved the lion's share of their retirement savings and tax-deferred vehicles like 401ks, what rate are their postponed tax payments going to be taxed at? David shares that, with the exception of a small period in the early ‘90s, taxes haven't been as historically low as they are today in 80 years. He advises to do all the heavy lifting now by preemptively paying taxes on IRAs and 401ks before tax rates go up on January 1st 2026. David talks about the fact that after January 1st 2026, tax rates are going to revert back to what they were in 2017. This means that each day that goes by where we fail to take advantage of historically low tax rates is potentially a year beyond 2026 where we could be forced to pay the highest tax rates we are likely to see in our lifetime. David shares his insights about how retirees and retirees-to-be can transition these assets before January 1st 2026 arrives. David advises those who have too much money in their 401k or IRA to start repositioning that money systematically to the tax free bucket by way of a Roth conversion. The Roth conversion has no income limitation. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, is just borrowing money that they don't have. Every year that Congress doesn't fix the problem means new consequences. (aka higher tax rates).     Mentioned in this episode: David's books: Power of Zero, Look Before Your LIRP, The Volatility Shield, Tax-Free Income for Life and The Infinity Code DavidMcKnight.com PowerOfZero.com (free video series) @mcknightandco on Twitter  @davidcmcknight on Instagram David McKnight on YouTube

With telehealth usage during the pandemic—up from 2.1 million services in 2019, to 32.5 million services from March 2020-February 2021—the GAO (US Government Accountability Office) realized that Medicaid hasn't collected or assessed any data on the quality-of-care beneficiaries received from telehealth services.The GAO now recommends that they do so. Given concerns the GAO has raised about the quality of care provided via telehealth, this beneficiary data is crucial. It's also consistent with how CMS has encouraged states to use data on quality of care to identify disparities in health care and target opportunities for improvement to advance health equity.During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Terry Fletcher, a healthcare coding expert, will discuss how the GAO is holding CMS accountable for assessing the effect of increased telehealth use by Medicaid Beneficiaries.The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will report on the latest coding news.Talk Law: Brianna J.

You'll never be completely prepared to place your parents or a disabled loved one in a nursing home. But, it's best to be ready if and when that moment comes. It is estimated that 50% of the older adults in the U.S. will spend at least a night in a nursing home. However, it's sad to note that many families only check out a nursing home when forced by a medical emergency. As a result, they are often unprepared and make fast selections regarding which facility would work for what may be a long time. Yes, it is a harsh reality, but don't be concerned. Sure, it should make you feel a little more pressured about your plans and the possibility of needing to make this terrible decision for your parents or loved ones, but that's where This Is Getting Old can help. Watch the full episode or listen to the podcast of Episode 106: What is a Nursing Home? Five Things to Know. Take note of the essential things you need to know about Nursing Homes and correct some misconceptions as you stay tuned. Key points covered in this episode:  ✔️What Is A Nursing Home? A nursing home is where you go when you need care but you don't need to be at a hospital, but you also can't be cared for at home. It's a middle ground between the hospital and home care.  Nursing homes play an essential role in our society, yet many people still negatively think about them.  Why is that so? The negative impression can be attributed to the history of poor care, abuse or neglect that follows this industry after 35 years of regulation by the Federal Government. On the bright side, many good people are working in this industry, and they're working to improve the quality of care until it gets where it needs to be for older adults and people living with disabilities.  ✔️ Who Pays For Nursing Home Care? Federal Dollars: Nursing homes take federal dollars in the form of Medicare for up to 100 days, but not 100% of the bill. Private Pay: After those 100 days of your Medicare coverage and you don't have supplemental insurance, you have to pay out of pocket for the difference. State Dollars: Nursing homes take state dollars, which is Medicaid. But Medicaid is only for people over 65, not people with disabilities who have spent down their own money or otherwise qualify for Medicaid.  ✔️What Type Of Care Is Provided In Nursing Homes? Skilled care! It is at the heart of distinguishing a skilled nursing home from assisted living. Skilled means that a licensed nurse provides some of the needed care each day.  ✔️Who Provides Skilled Care In A Nursing Home? Licensed nurses provide skilled care in nursing homes. This could be a baccalaureate-prepared registered nurse, an associate degree registered nurse, or an LPN (licensed practical nurse). A nursing home must have a licensed nurse in the building 24 hours a day, which could be an R.N. or an LPN. The facility also needs to have a registered nurse that's either the baccalaureate or the associate degree level in the building eight hours a day, seven days a week and on-call 24 hours.  How does skilled care make Nursing homes different from assisted living? Nursing homes are very different from assisted living. Many assisted living advertised providing nursing care, but they're not actually talking about licensed nursing care. ✔️Who Provides Most Of The Care In Nursing Homes? Certified Nursing Assistants or CNAs do the bulk of the care that's provided to nursing home residents. All nursing staff in nursing homes are underpaid, but CNAs bear the worst of it. They aren't even paid a livable wage, which has to change. ✔️What Other Things Could Be Considered Skilled Care? Rehabilitation is another skilled care provided by nursing homes. This is done by our physical therapist, occupational therapist, or speech therapist, who are essential team members in the building Monday through Friday during regular business hours. They help our residents get stronger, help them re-learn to do things, help them be independent or they can re-learn communication skills, even help with swallowing. If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  About Melissa Batchelor, Ph.D., R.N., FNP-BC, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON). I genuinely enjoy working with the complex medical needs of older adults. I worked full-time for five years as FNP in geriatric primary care across many long-term care settings (skilled nursing homes, assisted living, home, and office visits), then transitioned into academic nursing in 2005, joining the faculty at UNCW SON as a lecturer. I obtained my Ph.D. in Nursing and a post-master's Certificate in Nursing Education from the Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing ('11). I then joined the faculty at Duke University School of Nursing as an Assistant Professor. My family moved to northern Virginia in 2015 and led to me joining the George Washington University (G.W.) School of Nursing faculty in 2018 as a (tenured) Associate Professor. I am also the Director of the G.W. Center for Aging, Health, and Humanities.

Matthew Siegel, MD, Director of the Developmental Disorders Program, Maine Behavioral Health, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics of Tufts University and Faculty Scientist, MMC Research Institute His program provides a continuum of care for people with severe autism, including outpatient services providing a range of services, and a 12-bed inpatient unit that serves youth age 20 and under. Patients usually have a coexisting psychiatric disorders and exhibit unsafe behaviors. The inpatient stay is usually about 30-40 days. They also have a partial inpatient program for part of the day in addition to an in-home program for very young children. The new Glickman Lauder Center of Excellence in Autism and Developmental Disorders brings treatment under one roof. Highlights: • The number of these inpatient units has increased to about 15-18 across the country, though that's not enough by any means. (NCSA is developing this list and will place it on the NCSAutism.org website). Some are listed here. • A new clinical group is focused on developing best practices — they will provide a list of resources too. • Excellent work from multiple disciplines is needed to address severe behaviors, which have various roots. • The first few days in inpatient are devoted to observation, often stripping away medications, then building a plan including a behavior plan, speech, OT. • They are looking for a decrease in behaviors over time, not just reacting to the past 24 hours. They look for a lowering of intensity in behaviors, taking much data (it's an ABA-based program) and analyzing. People don't tend to go to zero, but safe enough to be discharged, with in-home services, usually funded by Medicaid. They work to transfer the behavior plan to them. About 1/3 of the patients do not return home but go to a group setting. A portion of patients are still not safe even after a comprehensive treatment program — they cannot live with parents and need a facility or residence staffed and able to handle those behaviors. • A dire lack of step-down options for those who need intensive care. In Maine, there was no change to reimbursement for 10 years, and after Covid there is an intensified staffing shorting. Now there are 2 places in the entire state, and they are full. And out of state, they are full too. Right now the system is entirely paralyzed. People can't get out of the hospital, and others can't get in. • The program had been spread across multiple sites, but now thanks to a large donation they have created The Glickman-Lauder Center, which also includes serving adults as outpatients. A very exciting step. They also do research and training. Having an excellent center does a lot to support research and training. • Research: How well is this population being attended to by the research community? They surveyed all the treatment studies over the past 20 years, and found the inclusion of people with severe autism has dropped dramatically; 2/3 of studies are not looking at severe autism. One could argue that those who are most severely affected should receive the most attention in research. • We can't let the desire to be inclusive to get in the way of attending to the needs of severe autism.

Some people are concerned about the high cost of medical, health, and long term care in assisted living and nursing homes. Physicians have figured out how to use advances in medical technology to keep us alive a long time. Now that our family and friends are living longer we are taking care of them and assisting them with their activities of daily living. When the time comes that we need a nurse twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week to care for our loved ones, we have an opportunity to use the tax dollars they have already paid by using government benefits – namely Medicaid. Lawyers like Todd Marquardt got into this area of law to help adult caregiving children and caregiving spouses save money and qualify for benefits. Elder law attorneys help complete complicated forms and provide advice for submitting evidence for qualifying. Sometimes applications for benefits are wrongfully denied because bureaucrat case workers are actually incentivized to rush through processing, which causes mistakes. Elder law attorneys represent applicants in appeal hearings to overturn denied applications. If you know someone who is scared to death of poverty because of the high cost of long term care, refer them to an elder law attorney. Marquardt Law Firm, P.C. sponsors this show.

Medicare Advantage or MA Plans are another way for beneficiaries to get Medicare Part A and Part B coverage delivered through private insurance companies. MA Plans adhere to the rules set by Medicare to cover beneficiaries, but their benefits are delivered by Medicare approved private companies. MA plans are part of a broader trend towards public sources of coverage, like Medicare and Medicaid, increasingly relying on private health plans to provide or administer their health benefits. Last year 42 % of all Medicare beneficiaries got their. benefits through private MA plans. Enrollment in these plans is growing at nearly 10% per year. There is serious concerns that coverage and patient access are being eroded as a result of health insurer efforts to restrict access and that there is a tremendous burden on health care providers to manage these insurer policies. In fact the HHS Office of Inspector General recently published a report finding that MA plans have exhibited a pattern of denying prior authorization and payment requests that would have covered by original Medicare. These types of denials have raised fears about certain insurer practices, which may impede beneficiary access to medically necessary care. Joining the podcast today to discuss the trends of how Medicare Advantage plans may affect patient care is Michelle Millerick, AHA's Senior Associate Director of Health Insurance Coverage.

How much income is needed to be happy? In the past, a major study indicated that $75,000 was the magic number. After that, additional income doesn't move the happiness needle all that much. However, a more recent study suggests otherwise. In this show we talk about this idea of how much income is enough income.

It's no secret that mental health care can be expensive and difficult to access, especially for young people. This can be a huge problem for students, who often face significant stressors. Bridging the gap in student access to mental health care can alleviate some of these stressors. Dr. Travis Gayles, a recent recipient of the AMA Award for Outstanding Service for his leadership during the pandemic, is an expert on child health access, especially as it relates to what kids have been up against for the past two years. In Episode 220 of Class Dismissed, Gayles tells about the stressors students face and how school districts are coming up with innovative new ways to get students access to school-based telehealthcare. Hazel Health, the company Gayles works with, partners with schools to provide physical health, check-ups, and mental and behavioral health evaluations. They give students access to a network of doctors for speedy diagnoses and care plans, including urgent care, particularly in underserved communities with large populations of Medicaid-insured students.

As many as 14 million Americans on Medicaid could lose their coverage when the pandemic public health emergency expires. The declaration – and the temporary reforms it allowed for – are set to end on July 15th, if the Biden administration doesn't extend them. This could result in a historic jump in the U.S. uninsured rate. Plus, improving location accuracy on wireless 911 calls. And, a new record for gas prices.

Holyoke Media, en asociación con WHMP radio, emiten diariamente la Síntesis informativa en español a través del 101.5 FM y en el 1240 / 1400 AM. Esta es la síntesis informativa del martes 10 de mayo de 2022: - La administración Biden dice que se asociará con proveedores de Internet para reducir el costo de los planes de Internet de alta velocidad para los estadounidenses de bajos ingresos, anunció la Casa Blanca el lunes. El Programa de Conectividad Asequible (ACP por sus siglas en inglés) proporcionará planes de al menos 100 Megabits por segundo de velocidad por no más de $30. Se estima que 48 millones de estadounidenses calificarán. “El servicio de Internet de alta velocidad ya no es un lujo, es una necesidad”, dijo la Casa Blanca. "Pero demasiadas familias se quedan sin Internet de alta velocidad debido al costo o tienen que reducir otros elementos esenciales para hacer los pagos mensuales del servicio de Internet". Veinte proveedores de Internet, incluidas empresas nacionales como AT&T, Comcast y Verizon, así como empresas regionales, se han comprometido con el programa. Los estadounidenses pronto podrán visitar www.getinternet.gov para determinar su elegibilidad e inscribirse en el programa. Aquellos que reciben beneficios, como Pell Grant, Medicaid o SNAP, pueden calificar. Las agencias que supervisan estos programas se comunicarán con los beneficiarios de estos beneficios para ver qué hogares califican para el ACP. Los hogares elegibles también pueden recibir notificaciones de agencias de la ciudad o del estado. FUENTE: WBUR, NPR - Washington buscó retratar un frente unido contra la invasión rusa de Ucrania el lunes cuando el presidente Joe Biden firmó una medida bipartidista para reiniciar el programa de "préstamo y arriendo" de la era de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, que ayudó a derrotar a la Alemania nazi, para reforzar a los aliados de Kiev y Europa del Este. La firma se produce cuando el Congreso de EEUU está listo para liberar miles de millones más para luchar en la guerra contra Rusia, con los demócratas preparando $ 40 mil millones en ayuda militar y humanitaria, más grande que el paquete de $ 33 mil millones que Biden ha solicitado. Todo sirve como una réplica al presidente ruso, Vladimir Putin, quien aprovechó el Día de la Victoria en Europa, el aniversario de la rendición incondicional de Alemania en 1945 y la fiesta patriótica más grande de Rusia, para unir a su pueblo detrás de la invasión. Biden dijo que era urgente que el Congreso aprobara el próximo paquete de asistencia a Ucrania para evitar cualquier interrupción en el envío de suministros militares para ayudar a luchar en la guerra, con un plazo crucial de 10 días. La Cámara podría votar tan pronto como esta semana sobre el paquete reforzado de ayuda a Ucrania, enviando la legislación al Senado, que está trabajando para confirmar a la candidata de Biden, Bridget Brink, como la nueva embajadora de Ucrania. Antes de firmar el proyecto de ley, Biden dijo que “la guerra de Putin” estaba “trayendo una vez más la destrucción desenfrenada de Europa”, haciendo referencia al significado del día. FUENTE: AP

But the truth is, that almost all of us, even the richest and most well-off, benefit from government services and programs. There are services that most of us can recognize as government programs: food stamps, welfare, Pell Grants, Medicare and Medicaid, and Social Security retirement benefits. Maybe you've used some of these. But there are also not so visible government programs that we might benefit from without realizing. These are usually hidden in the tax code or through subsidies through private organizations. These include the home-mortgage-interest deduction and tax exemptions you may get on employer-provided health and retirement benefits. You might have used some of these as well without even knowing it.  We speak with Suzanne Mettler, a professor of government at Cornell University, calls this the "submerged state." She is also the author of the book “The Submerged State: How Invisible Government Policies Undermine American Democracy.”
