Question by sedcontra: Does the new health care law prohibit doctors from giving patients paper scripts?
I don’t like doctors (or actually, their staff) from calling or faxing prescriptions when they can just hand them to me. I’ve had problems with doctors not calling them in or calling the wrong pharmacy. But my child’s pediatrician told us that the new health care law prohibits (or will eventually prohibit) doctors from giving patients paper scripts. Is there any truth to this? If so, can anyone point to me where in the bill this is mandated?
Answer by Comrade Snarkovich
That is the eventual goal, but not quite as you’ve described.

What do hospital infections, sinusitis, periodontal disease, middle ear infections, tonsillitis, COPD, diabetic foot wounds, osteomyelitis and cystic fibrosis have in common? The persistence of these chronic conditions originate from slimy bacterial biofilms that encase bacteria and microbes of many types, exploit the immune system and resist antibiotic treatment.
While the existence of bacterial biofilm was first documented in 1683 and rediscovered in the late 1970s, molecular diagnostics have demonstrated the omnipresence of biofilms in medical conditions affecting more than 17,000,000 people annually. The film Why Am I Still Sick? identifies the multifaceted roles of biofilms in causing persistent disease and offers startling revelations through interviews with medical experts and patients:

In the past five years, the Donations, Grants and Endowment industry has endured adverse conditions due to the economic downturn and volatility in the financial markets. In this report, revenue consists of contributions, grants, investment income and realized gains. Prior to 2008, contributions helped drive double-digit revenue growth as wealthy individuals looked into philanthropy, making significant donations to foundations and driving industry revenue. However, according to IBISWorld industry analyst Anna Son, Industry revenue was crippled as businesses and individuals curbed their giving as a result of the recession and credit crisis. Consequently, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will decline at an average annual rate of 4.7% to $ 80.9 billion over the five years to 2012. However, as the economy continues to recover, industry revenue is expected to rebound 3.7% in 2012.
Due to the poor financial market performance, foundations struggled to generate investment income, further hurting revenue during the recession. Additionally, grantmaking foundations’ ability to reinvest profit into their company, as profit margins plunged from about 8.2% in 2007 to 5.1% in 2012. However, after the two consecutive years of a double-digit decline, revenue for the Donations, Grants and Endowment industry surged by 18.7% in 2010. This recovery was a result of large companies beefing up their charitable giving, including Walmart, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and others. Moreover, the commitment of many foundations to maintain their grant budgets or reducing the extent of reductions relative to their assets helped offset what would have been even great declines in foundation giving since 2009. Foundations also benefited from the relatively low level of competition that they face from other organizations. While the majority of industry operators are smaller organizations, even the largest foundations focus on giving to local causes, meaning that there is space in the market for most industry operators to coexist, says Son. For example, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gives to charities in the Northwest region, while the Lilly Endowment is a major contributor to charities and causes in Indiana; however, neither entity competes with the other. Furthermore, the myriad of charitable causes, both domestically and internationally, ensures that market participants usually find their niche.
Industry revenue is forecast to increase steadily over the next five years. During this period, demand for industry services is expected to remain stable due to charities’ and individuals’ continued reliance on foundation giving; healthcare and education will continue to benefit from the largest shares of foundation grant dollars. In 2013, foundation giving is expected to remain consistent, posting only modest growth. While many foundations will likely be able to keep their giving steady over the next year, some are expected to have to make further cuts in order to preserve profit margins. However, as businesses return to profitability and individuals’ wealth improves, they are likely to raise their charitable giving, thus boosting industry revenue. Furthermore, corporations and other for-profit groups will continue to open trusts and foundations as a way to promote a positive image of their organizations.
