Beginning next year, Medicare Advantage plans will be allowed to cover a broader array of health-related services that may help people with Medicare improve their health. Starting in January 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has expanded the health-related benefits that insurers are allowed to include in their Medicare Advantage plans. Rides to the gym and in-home safety measures such as bathroom grab bars are among the new benefits added to certain Medicare Advantage plans for 2019. Original Medicare combines Medicare Part A, which helps cover hospital and other types of inpatient care, and Medicare Part B, which helps cover doctor visits, outpatient and preventive care. Original Medicare does not include coverage for most prescriptions. Medicare Advantage plans cover everything that Original Medicare covers and may include extra benefits, services and often prescription drug coverage through a private insurer such as Humana. Most Medicare Advantage plans offer extra coverage and services, such as vision, hearing and dental benefits, health and wellness programs, and a 24-hour nurse advice line. And most include Medicare prescription drug coverage. Health and wellness benefits often include fitness programs and gym memberships, and transportation to medical appointments. For 2019, Medicare Advantage plans provide members access to an expanded choice of over-the-counter personal care items such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, pill boxes, cough and cold medicines, eye drops, vitamins, heating pads, compression stockings and other supplies for diabetics, plastic bandages and other first aid items. The new Medicare Advantage supplemental benefits approved by CMS for 2019 also include virtual medical visits and virtual psychiatry, in-home support services and caregiver support. People with Medicare can see which new health and wellness benefits are being offered for 2019 on Medicare Advantage plans in their neighborhood by going online to the Medicare Plan Finder, or for Humana Medicare Advantage plans at www.humana.com/Medicare. You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) (or TTY: 1-877-486-2048) 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or call Humana at 1-877-877-0714 (TTY use 711) from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., local time, seven days a week. The Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan Annual Election Period takes place from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2018 for coverage that takes effect Jan. 1, 2019. Humana is a Medicare Advantage HMO, PPO, and PFFS organization, and stand-alone prescription drug plan, with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in any Humana plan depends on plan renewal. This information is not a complete description of benefits. Call 1-877-877-0714 (TTY use 711) for more information. Telepsychiatry services are currently available to Humana Medicare Advantage members at selected locations. Limitations on health care and prescription services delivered via virtual visits and communications options vary by state. Virtual visit services are not a substitute for emergency care and are not intended to replace your primary care provider or other providers in your network.

Our Mission: The Minnesota Board of Psychology protects the public through licensure, regulation and education to promote access to safe, competent, and ethical psychological services. ------------------------------------------------------- The Minnesota Board of Psychology (Board) hosted its 2016 Continuing Education Conference on Thursday, May 19, 2016. The intended audience was licensed psychologists, applicants for licensure and individuals interested in the changing landscape for the practice of psychology in Minnesota. The concern for the ability of Minnesota's mental health workforce to adequately meet the needs of its citizens now and in the future requires the attention and focus of those able to provide leadership, resources, and services. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act and mental health parity regulations are driving the demand for mental health care up. In light of this, Minnesota has identified that "the combined challenges of an aging mental health workforce, ongoing discrimination" and other factors risk exacerbating the demand even further. - The current composition of the mental health and psychology workforce in Minnesota; - The work of Minnesota’s “Mental Health Summit” which resulted in over 100 recommendations aimed at increasing the number and diversity of the mental health workforce as well as ensuring the availability, accessibility, and quality of education and training of the mental health workforce; - What those recommendations are, what has been accomplished to date, and how those recommendations relate to your practice and the future of psychology in Minnesota. - How you can engage in the discussion surrounding those recommendations and in future actions related to addressing issues in Minnesota’s provision of mental health services. - The importance of responding to recommendations that impact the practice of psychology most including recommendations for the following: development of a process for cross-discipline certification of supervisors, common supervision certificates in education programs, internship hours counting toward licensure, practicum hours counting toward supervisory experience, creation of a supervision training institute that would provide free supervision training throughout Minnesota, consideration of tax incentives for mental health professionals’ training and more.

This conference informed community members and stakeholders about trauma and trauma-informed care. Participants learned to recognize the role of trauma in the lives of children, the effects of adverse childhood experiences on adult health risk behaviors and diseases (delineated in Dr. Robert Anda’s seminal “ACEs” study), and learned how to apply the tenets of the Sanctuary Model to provide trauma-informed treatment and care. Furthermore, this conference enabled participants to collaborate with one another to form a network of community leaders and activists.

You only have to be the best in your market, in your local market, not the state market, not the capital market, not the Australian market." -Mark Overton, Ideology Consulting Plus we cover more local marketing strategies and tactics. ----------------------------- Want to make contact with Mark?

View the press conference announcing the launch of Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) "Direct Project" with comments from Aneesh Chopra, Chief Technology Officer, White House; Dr. David Blumenthal, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology; and other key contributors. The White House and ONC announced that providers and public health agencies in Minnesota and Rhode Island began exchanging health information using specifications developed by the Direct Project, an 'open government' initiative that calls on cooperative efforts by organizations in the health care and information technology sectors. (February 2, 2011) The press conference was moderated by Farzad Mostashari, MD, ScM, Deputy National Coordinator for Programs and Policy, ONC, and includes remarks from Dr. David Blumenthal and Aneesh Chopra. Designed as part of President Obama's 'open government' initiative to drive rapid innovation, the Direct Project last year brought together some 200 participants from more than 60 companies and other organizations. "This is a new approach to public sector leadership, and it works," said Chopra. "Instead of depending on a traditional top-down approach, stakeholders worked together to develop an open, standardized platform that dramatically lowers costs and barriers to secure health information exchange. The Direct Project is a great example of how government can work as a convener to catalyze new ideas and business models through collaboration." The two pilot programs that have already begun using Direct Project-based information exchange are in Minnesota and Rhode Island: Minnesota: Hennepin County Medical Center, Minnesota's premier Level 1 Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center, has been successfully sending immunization records to the Minnesota Department of Health. "This demonstrates the success that is possible through public-private collaborations," said James Golden, PhD, Minnesota's state health information technology coordinator. Rhode Island: The Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI) has delivered a pilot project with two primary goals: (1) RIQI is improving patient care when patients are referred to specialists by demonstrating simple, direct provider-to-provider data; and (2) RIQI is leveraging Direct Project messaging as a means to securely feed clinical information, with patient consent from practice-based electronic health records to the state-wide health information exchange, current care, to improve quality by detecting gaps in care and making sure the full record is available to all care providers. Other speakers included industry and government professionals who helped make the Direct Project launch a success: Mark Briggs, MSc, Chief Executive Officer, VisionShare; Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer, Allscripts; Sean Nolan, Chief Architect, Microsoft Health Solutions; and, Albert Puerini, Jr, MD, President and CEO, Polaris Medical Management, President and CEO, Rhode Island Primary Care Physicians; and, Todd Park, Chief Technology Officer, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Gil Nelson, iDigBio, Florida State University Molly Phillips, iDigBio, University of Florida The first two decades of the 21st Century have seen an exponential increase in the generation and mobilization of digital, specimen-based biodiversity data and turned natural history museums and biodiversity collections in academic institutions into major resources of conservation data. Led in the U.S. largely by the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) initiative, more than 700 U.S. institutions in 50 states and two territories are digitizing their biodiversity collections and serving these data through iDigBio (Integrated Digitized Biocollections), the national coordinating center for digitization and data mobilization in the U.S. The iDigBio portal (https://www.idigbio.org/portal) now serves more than 110 million records representing 300-400 million specimens, and just over 24 million media records, the majority of which are 2D images. These resources expose previously difficult-to-access collections to wider audiences of conservation practitioners and provide access to the best biodiversity data in the modern era outside of nature itself. This webinar will focus on the brief history of data mobilization in the U.S., the data that are now available and accessible to conservation planners, and how these data can be employed in the implementation of conservation strategies. An overview of the iDigBio data portal will be included.

There is a widespread consensus that the practice of law has changed dramatically in the last several decades, and most expect that these changes will only accelerate in the coming years. And yet, the model of legal education used in most law schools around the world is similar to what it was in not only the last century but also the century before last. A panel titled “Educating Global Lawyer,” led by Harvard Law School Professor David Wilkins ’80, director of Harvard’s Center on the Legal Profession, explored how the large-scale forces that are transforming law practice. Panelists --Michele DeStefano ‘02, professor, University of Miami School of Law; C. Raj Kumar LL.M. ‘00, vice chancellor and professor, O.P. Jindal Global Universtiy; William Lee, partner, WilmerHale; Harvard Law School Professor Ruth Okediji LL.M. ‘91 S.J.D. ‘96; and John Suh, chief executive officer, LegalZoom -- reflected on their own experiences and discussed ways to help Harvard Law School redefine legal education for the 21st century.

The Minnesota Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities decided to use the Baldrige Framework and Criteria for Performance Excellence as their framework for Quality. The Federal Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act (the DD Act) specifies the outcomes that the Council is supposed to be achieving. As a result of the products provided and services received by individuals with developmental disabilities and families (their customers) through the projects and activities the Council funds, the expectation is that these customer defined measures will increase. These Federal outcomes are known by the acronym IPSII. Independence: The personal freedom to make choices and have control over services, supports, and other assistance the individual receives; Self-determination: The authority to make decisions, control resources, and develop personal leadership skills; Productivity: Meaningful income-producing work or volunteer work that contributes to a household or the community; Integration and Inclusion: Full participation in the same community activities as people without disabilities.
