When Mrs. Ramirez met with American Financial Solutions certified credit counselor Carmen Perales, she and her husband owed $ 30,000 in medical bills. Perales worked with the family to establish a budget and to understand all of their expenses, but that was not all they accomplished.

The Supreme Courts recent ruling in favor of the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (visit our website to learn more), provides multiple benefits for consumers. Free preventative care, no waiting periods for care, and no maximum amount of benefits someone can receive in a lifetime. However, those benefits may come at a higher price for other services. Some insurance companies, medical providers and pharmaceutical companies are struggling to reduce their expenses and find a way to shift their increasing costs to consumers.

Every day, American Financial Solutions (AFS) assists people overwhelmed with medical debt. According to Becky House, Education Director for AFS, Nearly everyone we counsel has some sort of medical debt. If it has not been paid, it shows up on their credit report. If it has been paid, it may be hidden in the debt on their credit cards.

In a study published in 2010 by Demos, a non-partisan public policy research and advocacy organization, and The Access Project, a resource center for local communities working to improve health and healthcare access, households with medical debt carried an average of $ 11,612 in credit card debt. Of that amount $ 2,194 is attributed to healthcare expenses.

In March of 2012, the Centers for Disease Control released a report stating that in 2011, one in three persons was in a family experiencing the financial burden of medical care. One in 5 persons was in a family having problems paying medical bills, 1 in 4 persons was in a family paying medical bills over time, and 1 in 10 persons was in a family that had medical bills they were unable to pay at all.

Mrs. Musgrove came to American Financial Solutions in 2007 looking for help to rebuild her credit after filing bankruptcy to eliminate $ 68,000 in medical expenses. Before the bankruptcy, I was actually borrowing money from family to pay collection agencies. I couldnt keep up with the bills. I wanted to pay for the services, but no one would take payments. They all wanted the entire amount – now. I didn’t know there was help available.

As for the Ramirez family, their story ended very differently. After reviewing the familys financial situation, Ms. Perales encouraged them to contact the hospital to whom they owed money and seek charity care or financial assistance. They did and based on their income and family size, the Ramirezes qualified for charity care and the entire debt was eliminated.

Both of these families provide an example as to why it is important to know your medical debt repayment options.

As shown in the Ramirez case, resolution of medical bills does not have to end in bankruptcy or with accounts sent to collection agencies. American Financial Solutions recommends exploring all options for handling the debt. Below are some tips:

The Utah Education Network (UEN) working as a key partner of the Utah Data Alliance (UDA) has selected Choice Solutions to deliver a secure data warehouse of de-identified early childhood, K-12, post-secondary, and workforce data provided by multiple state agencies that will use this warehouse for analysis and research in support of data driven decision making.

Statewide longitudinal data systems (SLDSs) are a single solution to manage, disaggregate, analyze, and leverage education information within a state. In recent years, the scope of these systems has broadened from the K-12 spectrum to now encompass pre-kindergarten through higher education and workforce training (P-20W). This project requires information technology and education research expertise from all stakeholders involved to insure its success.

The challenge is in the linking, in determining how best to forge the organizational and technical bonds, and to build the data system needed to make informed decisions. Choice Solutions, the leader in P-20W SLDSs, has worked with 15 states across the nation to customize, integrate, and implement edFusion, their enterprise grade P-20W SLDS. Choices level of P-20W data linking experience, in concert with the edFusion product stack, will serve Utahs system requirements.

The P-20W SLDS project wont be a cold start to the partnership; the Utah State Office of Education and Choice (in partnership with Pearson Data Solutions) have been working together for the past year to implement the Utah e-Transcript and Record Exchange system (UTREx). UTREx is being phased into production with the core (collection, validation, reporting) functions having been implemented statewide in August 2011. In addition, UTREx allows individual, detailed student records to be exchanged electronically between any two Utah local education agencies (LEAs). UTREx is currently piloting submission of official student transcripts to any institution of higher education in the country from any Utah high school.

When complete, the P-20W SLDS project will produce accurate and timely data for education policy and decision makers and will yield improved student outcomes for the State of Utah.

Clackamas, Oregon (PRWEB) January 05, 2012

Devastating physical and financial blows have been felt for years from both sides of the hospital curtain due to the alarming rate of healthcare workforce injuries. According to the American Nurses Association, more than one-third of back injuries among nurses and other caregivers have been associated with the handling of patients and the frequency with which caregivers are required to move them. It is estimated that the cost to the nation in 2008 was 7.4 billion dollars in direct and indirect costs for workers compensation claims, medical bills, and staff replacements for health care workers (U.S. Senate, 2010; UMass, 2011).

As a result of the staggering statistics regarding occupational healthcare injuries, nine states have mandated legislation that requires powered lifts and transfer devices in lieu of manual lifting. California now follows suit with the Hospital Patient and Health Care Worker Injury Protection Act (AB 1136), which became law on January 1, 2012. Acute care hospitals in California will now be responsible to implement Safe Patient Handling (SPH) policies to mitigate injury and protect caregivers and patients.

Working to minimize risk for caregivers, patients and healthcare facilities alike, Oregons WyEast Medical, has been designing and manufacturing mobility solutions for safe patient handling for over 20 years. In fact, WyEast helps to move patients in one out of three hospitals in the United States. The companys TotaLift-II Transfer Chair, an innovative stretcher that converts to a chair, is currently being used in thousands of healthcare facilities around the world and offers a simple option to manual lifting. The patented design provides for a transfer pad that actually moves the patient from bed to stretcher and back again with absolutely no lifting on the part of the caregiver.

The proper use of patient transfer systems results in a dramatic reduction in injury to caregivers and patients. Many organizations have seen the benefits where they matter most on the bottom line, said Eric Race, president and founder of Atlas Lift Tech, a company that provides safe patient handling programs and services for the medical industry. These results are measured in terms that most organizations notice: fewer claims and a marked reduction in lost days away from work (DAW). We have found the WyEast TotaLift-II to help us accomplish just that.

Improper lift procedures are virtually negated by the simple transfer process of the TotaLift-II. And the equipment is appropriate in almost any care environment, from ICU to cardiac care to orthopedics, burn units and more. All processes are either hydraulic or mechanical, eliminating the need for a power source. WyEasts patient transfer systems are flexible, ergonomically sound and designed for varying bed heights and tight spaces. As a rule, they are manufactured in accordance with the highest manufacturing standards.

“I have used the WyEast TotaLift chairs in critical care and step-down units for the past ten years — it is one of the most useful assistive devices available on the market, says Pat Henry, RN, MS, Nurse Manager, ICU/TCU, San Francisco, California. The chair is practical, simple to use and ergonomically correct. And according to our patients, it is comfortable and secure.
