Mental Health Providers To Pay Nm For Overbilling

Presbyterian Medical Services serves about 3,400 New Mexicans through Medicaid, and is not affiliated with Presbyterian Healthcare Services or Presbyterian Health Plan. YDI provides behavioral health services to nearly 260 New Mexicans through Medicaid. “In the interest of resolving all differences between YDI and HSD amicably, and in order to avoid the time, trouble, expense, delay and uncertainty of the time litigating this matter we believed this was the most prudent path for YDI to take,” Klarissa Pena, YDI’s special projects director, said of the settlement. She said the repayment to the state represented about 8 percent of what had been billed for services during the past three years. As part of the settlements, both companies are severing ties with another provider, TeamBuilders Counseling Services Inc., which also remains under investigation. The department said YDI and Presbyterian Medical Services were not among the companies with what it described as the most serious whistleblower complaints, which include allegations that some providers told workers to bill for services that weren’t provided or to use the wrong billing codes to receive more Medicaid payments.

Study: Time to include mental health services in disaster response

North told PoliceOne that different disaster-affected populations will have different mental health needs that will vary with regard to the characteristics of the disaster and to their exposures to it. North said nine out of 10 people are likely to experience trauma in their lifetimes. For example, she said, it is important to distinguish between those who experience normal distress in a disaster and those in whom psychiatric disorders such as post-traumatic stress are triggered so that people can be treated appropriately. North said her literature review showed PTSD to be the most common disorder associated with most disasters, that nearly one-third of all those exposed to severe disasters will show signs of PTSD, and that nearly one-fourth will exhibit other signs, such as major depression, bereavement and substance abuse. North also said assessment procedures depend on the exposures and pre-existing vulnerabilities of those being assessed. Triage and referral must be grounded on a careful assessment, North said. North said evidence-based treatments are available for patients with active psychiatric disorders, but psychosocial interventions such as psychological first aid, psychological debriefing, crisis counseling, and psycho-education for individuals with distress have not been sufficiently evaluated to establish their benefit or harm in disaster settings. Future research is needed to determine the benefits of formal psychiatric treatments applied to disaster survivors and of the psychosocial interventions designed to serve those who experience distress, she said.

‘pregnancy Couldn’t Save Our Marriage’: A-list Wedding Planner David Tutera On Why He And His Husband Filed For Divorce Before Their Babies’ Birth

Anastasia Kepner – Harrisburg Pregnancy Health Examiner – Women’s Health

Going their separate ways: Mr Tutera and Mr Jurica haven’t spoken since the twin’s delivery this June Mr Tutera and Mr Jurica, who had a civil union in Vermont in September 2003 and later registered as domestic partners in California, had been trying for several years to start a family. They had given up hope, but six weeks before they broke up they found out that a surrogate had become pregnant with their twins. Despite their relationship coming to an end they decided to go through with the pregnancy. ‘There wasn’t time to mourn the loss of a second child, it was such a confusing time’ However in April, things turned nasty as Mr Jurica filed legal documents in which he alleged that the couple separated due to Mr Tuteras sex addiction and penchant for hiring prostitutes. ‘After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [David’s] addiction to sex,’ read a section of the documents filed by Mr Jurica.

The unintended pregnancy rate is a standout in the industrialized world , and has remained nearly flat since the 1980s despite advances in birth control technology and availability. Women with incomes at or below the federal poverty line are five times more likely than those at the highest income levels to become pregnant by accident and unintended pregnancies have become increasingly clustered among the poor in recent years. Most of the births resulting from unplanned pregnancies are publicly funded , and they aren’t cheap .

Hers wasnt the only ad on the classified advertisements website. Positive pregnancy tests (in Akron) for any purpose. Email for details. There have been similar Craigslist ads in cities throughout the nation, including Toledo, Indianapolis, Chicago and Phoenix all about $10 more expensive than the local going rate. EBay also has ads. Home pregnancy tests work by detecting the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin, in urine.

Mental Health, Autism Spectrum Patients Struggle To Get Health Care Coverage

Judge Orders Mental Health Evaluation Of Rabbi Norman Lamm In Yeshiva University Abuse Case

Lipa_sidebar

Weve applied for Medi-Cal and my brother was denied, she said. Although all of his possessions were here in California, he was denied service because he was in Minnesota visiting family at the time of his application. They said he was denied approval because he was not in California at the time of the application. We are going through the process, trying to re-apply. The Los Angeles Times reported in July that California is in the process of phasing out its Healthy Families insurance program, shifting nearly 900,000 children it covered into Medi-Cal. The Healthy Families insurance program provided services to autistic children, including therapy. For many families who wont be covered by Medi-Cal, the out-of-pocket expenses will be too costly. Im afraid hes not going to make any progress from now on, said Jenny Kim, a mother who would have to pay $10,000 a month in order for her son to receive the same behavior therapy once covered by the Healthy Families Program.

Mental Health, Autism Spectrum Patients Struggle To Get Health Care Coverage

Judge John Koeltl ordered an independent medical evaluation of Lamm, the results of which could take place as early as next week. That child sex abuse took place at Yeshiva Universitys affiliated boys high school in Manhattan and at other YU locations is not in doubt. Lamm told the Forward in December that he dealt with credible abuse allegations in the 70s, 80s and 90s as best as he could, often by forcing the abuser to leave YU but not by reporting the abuse to police. Lawyers for the many alleged victims reportedly say they want to interview Lamm as soon as it can be arranged, in case his mental health deteriorates. Lamms lawyer told the court that Lamms physician and a forensic neuropsychologist from Weill Cornell Medical College believe that any testimony from Lamm would be significantly impaired by cognitive impairment. He said that he had spoken to Lamm about significant facts about the case and that on two of those occasions, Lamm answered incorrectly. One of those discussions occurred a few months ago, Lamms lawyer reportedly told the court.

Will Vitamins Extend Your Lifespan Or Just Shrink Your Piggy Bank?

Infographic: Facebook fans of vitamins and supplements outpace clothing, music

Monthly-Review-August-2013

Self-medicating and self-diagnosing just doesn’t make sense. This issue won’t go away quietly. According to The New York Times article, half of adults take some form of vitamins at an annual cost of $23 billion. I expect to see a lot more reports and research on this topic in the months and years to come. Stay tuned!

Almost 35 percent of fans of those products are reached with every post, according to data from AgoraPulse . Other tidbits include: The clothing industry has the most engagement with fans, reaching 8 percent per post, which outpaces music and movies . Landmarks, movies and musicians have more engaged storytellers as evidenced by likes, comments and shares per post that reach 3 percent, 2.8 percent and 2.6 percent respectively. Movies may elicit the hot buzz online, but they are neck-and-neck on engagement with television shows .

Vitamins: Too Much Of A Not-so-good Thing?

Vita Health Recalls Numerous “Over-the-Counter” Products Because of Labelling Errors

Vitamins and supplements, representing about a $27 billion industry , are necessary to convert food into energy, but it’s possible to take them in excess, Offit said. For instance, it’s not uncommon to hear of someone taking 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C, but that’s about the same amount in 14 oranges. “Vitamins live under this notion that you can’t possibly hurt yourself,” he said. “But you can, by challenging Mother Nature and taking these vitamins and concentrating them to these exceptionally large quantities that you would never normally eat.” Opinion: Alternative healing or quackery?

Dr. Paul Offit says everyone should be more skeptical about taking large doses of vitamins.

FRIDAY, Aug. 27 (HealthDay News) — Nutritional supplements are popular among Americans but people need to educate themselves and use caution when using these products to try to reduce their risk of cancer , says a University of Texas expert. “Researchers are still unsure about whether or not minerals, herbs and other plants taken in pill, capsule, tablet or liquid form actually prevent cancer,” Sally Scroggs, health education manager at the Cancer Prevention Center at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Medical Center, said in a news release from the center.

Hair Loss Prevention 101

Hair Loss – Home Treatment

That holding true for healthy men hasnt really been studied, but both nutrients offer a host of other health benefits so there should be nothing stopping you from including more fish in your diet. Keep your iron levels in check Iron-deficiency anemia, which is more common in women, is a well-known cause of unexpected hair loss, but the loss may be so slight that you barely notice it. Adding some iron-rich foods to your diet like pumpkin seeds, quinoa or tofu may help if you run into any problems. This is particularly important if youre a vegetarian looking into hair loss prevention, since it can be harder to get enough iron when you have to avoid red meats or eggs.

It May Be Iron Deficiency Too Little Iron in Blood of Men and Women Shedding Hair Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD May 17, 2006 – If you’re losing hair, you may have an iron deficiency. A review of 40 years of research shows that iron deficiency has a much closer link to hair loss than most doctors realize. It may be the key to restoring hair growth, Cleveland Clinic dermatologists find. “We believe that treatment for hair loss is enhanced when iron deficiency, with or without anemia , is treated,” Leonid Benjamin Trost, MD; Wilma Fowler Bergfeld, MD; and Ellen Calogeras, RD, MPH, write in the May issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. It’s a controversial issue.

Hair Loss? It May Be Iron Deficiency

This may be easier for women because inherited hair loss ( androgenetic alopecia ) causes a general thinning that is usually not as severe as it is in men. Hair sprays, dyes, and perms can help make the hair appear fuller. In women with inherited hair loss, hair care and the occasional use of grooming products, hair sprays, hair color, teasing, permanents, or frequent washing will not increase hair loss. But if your hair loss is caused by hair care, then perms and dyes may contribute to more hair loss. Recommended Related to Hair Loss See All Male Pattern Baldness Topics

Top 5 Free Nutrition Podcasts

Nutrition Advisor in Pakistan

Nonetheless, this show will give you straight-forward, real information while demystifying some of the most ridiculous misconceptions around nutrition perpetuated by food manufacturers and mainstream media. 3. The Rich Roll Podcast For those vegan listeners and learners, The Rich Roll Podcast is a quirkily professional source of knowledge and science around not only vegan nutrition but vegan nutrition as an athlete. With a variety of powerful interviews, Rich Roll has taken his own experience after writing his renowned memoir, Finding Ultra, and aims to educate anyone looking to further their health on a plant-based, vegan lifestyle that may also include intense exercise paths such as ultra-endurance training or even the more seemingly mellow forms of exercise and wellness such as meditation and yoga. My only qualms with Rich Roll, compared to others on this list, is that he himself lacks a level of pep that keep listeners engaged, particularly in his introductions in each episode.

Virginia Tech started its sports nutrition program in 2002 under Amy Freel, whos now at Indiana.

And I knew nothing about nutrition. There was nobody that knew anything about nutrition. She found someone like-minded in Freel.

Journalists schooled on nutrition

Madam Wilhelmina Okwabi, Deputy Director and Head of the Nutrition Department at the Ghana Health Service, said recent analysis on epidemiological evidence showed that in Ghana 40% of all deaths before the age of five were due directly and indirectly to under nutrition, making it the single most important cause of child mortality. She said a recent study suggested that the high prevalence of under nutrition, coupled with inadequate maternal and child care behaviour such as low rate of iron supplementation among pregnant women, early or late initiation of complementary feeding among children, might be reasons for the stagnated child mortality levels in Ghana. Madam Okwabi said while there was a steady improvement of the nutritional situation in recent years, the prevalence of under nutrition was still unacceptably high. She listed feeding practices, food security, food safety, health care, water, sanitation and hygiene, socio-cultural and caring practices as the major determinants of malnutrition. Madam Okwabi said under nutrition in Ghana resulted in stunting, underweight and that the three northern regions as well as the Central Region had the highest rates of stunting and wasting. She said the rates were linked closely to food insecurity situation in those areas according to the Ministry of Healths 2007 National Health Policy.
