Lily Bohlke IowaWatch Published 3:40 p.m. UTC Aug 16, 2018 Briana Reha-Klenske starts helping migrant farmworkers lacking insurance who need medical care by asking: For how long are you in Iowa? The bilingual health care manager at Proteus Inc., Reha-Klenske’s patients are only in Iowa during the summers, which limits her ability to help. “We become their medical home and we’re able to see them over the course of the summer,” said Jesus Soto, chief executive officer of Proteus, a job training, health care and assistance organization that works with immigrant, minority and low-income populations. “But then they leave us, and so that makes it difficult." Having continued insurance for health care from job to job is one of many unique health challenges migrant farmworkers face because of the workers’ frequent movement from state to state without portable health insurance, which leads to a lack of insurance coverage, inconsistent professional … [Read more...] about Lack of portable insurance adds health care burden to Iowa’s migrant workers

And even when it isn’t, almost no one does it. ByAustin Frakt July 30, 2018 Each year, for well over a decade, more people have faced higher health insurance deductibles. The theory goes like this: The more of your own money that you have to spend on health care, the more careful you will be — buying only necessary care, purging waste from the system. But that theory doesn’t fully mesh with reality: High deductibles aren’t working as intended. A body of research — including randomized studies — shows that people do in fact cut back on care when they have to spend more for it. The problem is that they don’t cut only wasteful care. They also forgo the necessary kind. This, too, is well documented, … [Read more...] about Shopping for Health Care Simply Doesn’t Work. So What Might?

This is the ninth analysis in a series examining how health care is funded and delivered in state-run prisons, as well as how care continuity is facilitated upon release. Quality monitoring has become an increasingly powerful tool to improve health care systems, including in prisons, where high-stakes treatment is routinely needed. A first-of-its-kind report by The Pew Charitable Trusts details whether and how states monitor the quality of care they provide. This analysis builds on those findings, offering practical examples that policymakers and administrators can reference to inform their own policies and programs. Codified requirements can provide clarity for what shape a system should take and can bolster consistency amid personnel changes. For example, in Texas, legislation requires its Correctional Managed Health Care Committee, a cross-stakeholder division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice that addresses costs and operational … [Read more...] about How States Fortify Prison Health Care Quality Monitoring Systems
