Next are two short excerpts from a recently filmed TED presentation (Feb 2010) by none other than Bill “Microsoft” Gates. At the heart of Gates’ address lies the central Global Warming dogma, which dictates that Co2 emitted by human beings are the primary culprit for the unwanted heating of the globe. Since this artificial alleged human-induced heating effect allegedly stands to devastate the planet if left unabated, Global Warming dogma proponents therefore argue that human Co2 emissions must be drastically reduced. As Gates casually addresses the issue, he goes on to state that one way to accomplish this goal is to reduce the global human population. ERRATUM: To be completely fair and accurate, I should have stated that Gates seeks to reduce the anticipated growth of the human population rather than that he seeks to reduce the current population. I admit that the latter slogan, that is contained in the video, is a bit misleading and I do not want to insinuate that Gates seeks to kill off currently living people. He rather seeks to lower the projected population growth. He postulates the central equation, giving an estimation of the humanly emitted C02 load per year, to be: Co2 = P times S times E times C Where P stands for the population number, S the average number of services per person, E the average amount of energy units per service, and C the average Co2 emitted load per unit of service, per year; Co2 stands for the projected total humanly emitted carbon-dioxide

Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 05, 2012

Atlantic Information Services, Inc., publisher of Health Plan Week, Inside Health Insurance Exchanges, AIS’s Health Reform Week and ACO Business News, is pleased to announce its January 10 webinar, Setting Out-of-Network UCR Rates: Evaluating FAIR Healths Benchmark Data and New Alternatives for Insurers and Employers. See webinar details at http://aishealth.com/marketplace/c2m01_011012.

Its been nearly four years since New Yorks attorney general investigated the out-of-network reimbursement system used by insurers in the state and concluded it was flawed. UnitedHealth Group and 10 other insurers contributed nearly $ 100 million to a settlement, a portion of which was used to launch FAIR Health, Inc., a not-for-profit entity that has become a national clearinghouse for claims-based data.

Today, methods used to determine rates for out-of-network providers are coming under increased scrutiny. And rising deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs are leaving enrollees looking for tools that can help them estimate costs. Some medical societies have proposed that FAIR Health (and its 12 billion billed procedures for more than 120 million covered lives) become the default data source for determining rates for members who seek care from out-of-network providers. But some health insurers and self-insured employers have come up with alternative methods for determining Usual, Customary and Reasonable (UCR) rates for out-of-network providers.

Speakers Robin Gelburd, President of FAIR Health, Inc. and Robert Park a principal and consulting actuary in the New York office of Milliman will present the specifics about FAIR Health and other alternatives being used today by employers and health plans to set out-of-network rates.

During the 60-minute presentation and 30 minutes of Q&A, the speakers will answer these and other questions:


What models exist today for setting out-of-network rates? What are the chief advantages and disadvantages of each?

How does FAIR Healths new database differ from Ingenix databases? Whats new? What remains the same?

What are the pros and cons of basing out-of-network rates on a percentage of Medicare? How will FAIR Healths Medicare comparison tool work?

How will detailed consumer pricing information about out-of-network costs encourage members to stay in network?

What are the chances that FAIR Health will become the industry standard? What must take place for this to happen?

How should benchmarking data be used to determine charges under value-based payment mechanisms such as an ACO?
