How to Adopt the Affordable Care Act in Your Practice

How to Adopt the Affordable Care Act in Your Practice

By Bryan M. Rogoff, OD, MBA, CPHM The US government’s effort to increase the quality and affordability of health care, while decreasing the costs and protecting consumers, has been extremely political and highly criticized. Even after March 23, 2010, when President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law, the matter was hardly settled. Indeed, the questions and confusion had only just begun. Lawmakers, providers, patients and managed care companies have been scrambling to prepare for the biggest overhaul in health care since 1965, when Medicare and Medicaid were introduced. As recently as a couple months ago, President Obama and the Department of Health and Human Services came under fire for the initiative’s poorly functioning website, HealthCare.gov. Despite a rocky start, the program is picking up steam—as of January 1, more than 2.1 million Americans had enrolled for coverage. And, before HealthCare.gov even launched, Americans were already benefiting from the early provisions of the ACA: • Young adults under 26 years of age can remain on their parents’ health care plan. • Children with pre-existing conditions can’t be denied coverage. •...

Prevent Blindness America and Wiley X Focus Attention on Preventing Workplace Accidents and Eye Injuries

Prevent Blindness America and Wiley X Focus Attention on Preventing Workplace Accidents and Eye Injuries

Each year in March, Prevent Blindness America (www.preventblindness.org) makes a nationwide effort to focus attention on the important issue of workplace eye injuries and educate the American workforce about the tools and techniques that could help prevent the estimated 700,000 injuries that occur annually. And each year, leading protective eyewear manufacturer Wiley X is right there, offering its support and outreach for Workplace Eye Wellness Month. “Workplace eye injuries are a serious issue that can result in great personal tragedy, including the permanent loss of one’s sight,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “In addition, these accidents cost American businesses greatly, both financially and in terms of lost productivity. The hard truth is that nine out of 10 workplace eye injuries could be prevented, simply by wearing the right safety glasses at all times,” added Freeman. With such a simple solution and so much at stake, preventing workplace eye injuries is an issue that Wiley X takes very seriously. “The reasons workers give for not wearing protective eyewear — lack of comfort and style and interference with job duties, etc. — are absurd when you consider...
