Opioid-Makers Face Multiple Lawsuits in the New Year Print E-mail

The next 12 months might just redefine the way America thinks about and responds to the opioid epidemic that now claims more than 40,000 lives each year. The nation's  biggest drugmakers and distributors face a wave of civil lawsuits that could total tens of billions of dollars in damages. Thousands of state and local governments, including cities and tribal governments, are demanding that companies like Purdue Pharma, Walmart and Rite-Aid compensate them for the costs of responding to the crisis. They're also pushing companies to reveal far more internal documents, detailing what they knew about the risks of prescription pain medications.

"Our next battle is to get the documents that are being produced made available to the public instead of everything being filed under confidentiality agreements so we can get the facts out," said Joe Rice, an attorney representing local governments suing the drug industry.

Healthcare Is Where the Jobs Are. But What Kind of Jobs? Print E-mail

More Americans are now employed in healthcare than in any other industry. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, which tallies job creation, says that for most of this year the  health sector outpaced the retail industry. Only government, on all levels, employs more people. One of the consistent features of the BLS reports is that health care has reliably added thousands of jobs to the economy each month. November was no different. The health care industry created 32,000 jobs, adding to the 328,000 health care positions created since early 2017. But what kinds of jobs? Were they highly paid doctors and hospital executives or were they positions on the other end of the pay scale, such as nursing home aides and the people who enter data for billing in hospitals and clinics?

Federal Judge in Texas Overturns ACA Print E-mail

Late in the day Friday, Dec. 14, 2018 multiple media outlets reported the shocking news. Peter Sullivan reports for The Hill:
A federal judge in Texas on Friday struck down the Affordable Care Act, throwing a new round of uncertainty into the fate of the law just one day before the deadline to sign up for coverage for next year. U.S. District Court Judge Reed O'Connor ruled that the law's individual mandate is unconstitutional, and that because the mandate cannot be separated from the rest of the law, the rest of the law is also invalid...The reasoning of the ruling states that in 2012, the Supreme Court upheld the mandate to have coverage because of Congress's power to tax. But, last year, Congress removed the fine for failing to comply with the mandate, which, he <O'Connor> argues, means the mandate is no longer a tax and therefore is unconstitutional.
