ISSUE: The American Health Care Act (AHCA), passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The Congressional Budget Office indicates that the AHCA could increase the number of uninsured by 23 million by 2026. GOAL: To determine the consequences of the AHCA on employment and economic activity in every state. METHODS: We compute changes in federal spending and revenue from 2018 to 2026 for each state and use the PI+ model to project the effects on states’ employment and economies...

On 8 November 2016 the American electorate voted Donald Trump into the Presidency and a majority of Republicans into both houses of Congress. Since many Republicans ran for elected office on the promise to 'repeal and replace' Obamacare, this election result came with an expectation that campaign rhetoric would result in legislative action on healthcare. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) represented the Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Key elements of the AHCA included modifications of Medicaid expansion, repeal of the individual mandate, replacement of ACA subsidies with tax credits, and a broadening of the opportunity to use healthcare savings accounts...

From Obamacare to Trumpcare: Why You Should Care by Harry Nelson and Rob Fuller challenges the policy of both Democrats and Republicans. It explains how our country is so ideologically polarized that a consensus on health care is unlikely to emerge for the foreseeable future.

Although the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was recently defeated, the policies in the bill represented a mix of ideas long favored by conservatives. If enacted, this repeal-and-replace bill would have had devastating consequences for most of the 5 million Californians currently receiving direct benefits from the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including more than 1 million who receive subsidies through Covered California and almost 4 million who have enrolled in the Medi-Cal expansion. Although the bill failed to garner enough votes for passage, it is likely that efforts to chip away at the ACA will continue and that some of the ideas contained within the AHCA will be revisited...

BACKGROUND: Medication therapy management (MTM) programs were first introduced as a result of the 2003 Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act. Since then, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have established minimum requirements for health plans to follow in establishing patient eligibility for enrollment in these programs. The eligibility criteria are based on projected annual Part D medication costs, number of chronic disease states, and number of chronic Part D covered medications...

Cataract is the most common surgically reversible cause of vision loss and the most common major surgical procedure performed in the United States. To understand how gender composition might affect differences in health services, we examined the surgeon gender-specific rates of routine cataract surgery performed in ambulatory surgical centers in Florida. Routine cataract surgeries were identified through the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) ambulatory surgery center dataset. The background of individual surgeons was determined by linking license numbers in the dataset to physician profiles publicly available from AHCA...

SUMMARY: Low-back injuries are among the most common and costly work-related injuries. Many studies show a wide variation in the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to treat these injuries. To help standardize medical practice patterns and reduce the use of procedures with little or no proven benefit, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) developed and endorsed a scientifically sound medical practice guideline for the treatment of low-back injuries.This study investigates the potential of the guideline to reduce workers' compensation costs by reducing unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic treatments to workers with low-back injuries...

This study was conducted to characterize the protein molecular structure in endosperm tissues in newly developed black and yellow-type canola seeds by using synchrotron-based Fourier transform infrared microspectroscopy. The results showed that the yellow canola seeds contained relatively lower (P<0.05) percentage of β-sheet and amide I and amide II area compared to the black-type canola seed. This might be an indication that the protein value of the yellow canola seeds as food or feed is different from that of the black canola seeds...

Waltheria indica is used in traditional pharmacopeia in Burkina Faso for the treatment of asthma and conditions of inflammation. To evaluate its pharmacological properties and isolate the active compounds, a study through a bioguided phytochemical approach was conducted. This search was guided by a two-level investigation. First, we evaluated the impact of various fractions on the activity of enzymes involved in smooth muscle contraction (PDE4A1α) and inflammatory processes (PLA2 , 5-LOX). Second, we investigated the inhibitory effect of fractions on isolated rat trachea...

ABCG2 impacts oral availability, tissue distribution and excretion of its substrates, including anticancer and anti-infectious drugs. Highly expressed at physiological barriers, its secretion level significantly controls drug distribution. Furthermore, its increased content into many types of cancer may lead to cell chemoresistance. Owing to the clinical relevance of ABCG2 in the multidrug resistance phenomenon, ABCG2 constitutes an appealing therapeutic target to increase drug distribution. Development of ABCG2 inhibitors can be used in combination with anticancer drugs to block the drug secretion from cancer cells...

The NorA efflux pump lowers intracellular fluoroquinolone concentrations by expelling antibiotics through the membrane of Staphylococcus aureus. We identified 3-aryl-4-methyl-2-quinolin-2-ones as compounds able to restore the activity of the NorA substrate, ciprofloxacin, against resistant S. aureus strains, and acting as efflux pump inhibitors (EPI). In particular, 5-hydroxy-7-methoxy-4-methyl-3-phenylquinolin-2-one (6 c) presents both an EPI and an antimicrobial effect. Its efficacy and safety make it a potential candidate for further investigations...
