Tony Leys Des Moines Register Published 4:36 p.m. UTC Jul 20, 2018 Jamie Campbell won again. The Fontanelle man, who is paralyzed from the neck down, learned this week that a national Medicaid management firm is dropping its plan to slash the amount of in-home care he receives. This was the second year in a row that UnitedHealthcare attempted to make such cuts to Campbell’s services, claiming they were “not medically needed.” He pushed back both times, drawing statewide attention as an example of a severely disabled Iowan struggling to maintain care under the state’s shift to private Medicaid management. Campbell said Thursday he suspects UnitedHealthcare’s reversal was due to outrage sparked by a July 6 Des Moines Register story about the dispute. “In a way, I’m not surprised they dropped it,” he said, “but I expect in 2019 to get the same thing again.” Campbell, 45, has been paralyzed since breaking his neck in a … [Read more...] about Paralyzed Iowan wins second fight with Medicaid managed-care company UnitedHealthcare
Tony Leys Des Moines Register Published 8:27 p.m. UTC Jul 6, 2018 FONTANELLE, Iowa — Jamie Campbell can’t believe his Medicaid management company is messing with his care again. Campbell, who is paralyzed from the neck down, lives in his home with daily assistance from aides paid by Iowa’s Medicaid program. UnitedHealthcare, which the state hired to help manage Medicaid, tried last year to drastically reduce the amount of in-home help Campbell could receive. He appealed, saying he needed all the assistance he was using. An administrative law judge agreed, writing in a decision last summer that the evidence was “overwhelmingly” in Campbell’s favor. The judge ordered the insurer to continue covering his care as before. “I just figured I was done then,” Campbell said in a recent interview. “I didn’t dream they’d come after me again.” But they did. Campbell is among scores of disabled Iowans … [Read more...] about ‘Not medically needed’: A private Medicaid manager is trying to slash a paralyzed Iowa man’s care. Again.

(AP Photo/Tulsa World, Jeff Lautenberger) A top U.S. opioid distributor is pointing fingers at the government for the deluge of prescription painkillers that have poured into Native American communities at alarmingly high rates. McKesson Corp., one of the country’s three big wholesale drug distributors, is embroiled in litigation brought by Oklahoma-based Cherokee Nation, the country's largest tribal group, which has suffered severely from abuse and overdose. As part of its defense, the company recently pointed to its $31 billion, multiyear contract to supply drugs to the Veterans Affairs Department and other federal agencies, arguing it was just following the government’s guidance. “It is clear that the acts for which McKesson (and the other defendants) are being sued … [Read more...] about The Health 202: Opioid company blames government for Native American crisis
Ella Fitzgerald with Marilyn Monroe. (ELLA/Ultimate Symbol Publishers) A new book on the life of legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald hopes to shed light on the celebrated artist’s darkest hour before she became one of the most celebrated stars in music history. Emmy Award-winner and Grammy-nominated author Geoffrey Mark has recently published a biography on Fitzgerald to commemorate what would have been her 101st birthday. Fitzgerald died in 1996 at age 79. Mark told Fox News Fitzgerald’s estate gave his book “Ella” their blessing and he had full cooperation from the star’s recording companies.
