Updates to OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule: An Overview
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s updated recordkeeping rule includes two key changes. First, the rule updates the list of industries that are exempt from the requirement to routinely keep OSHA injury and illness records due to relatively low occupational injury and illness rates. The previous list of industries was based on the old Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system and injury and illness data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from 1996-1998.
Nurse Case Management
When an individual is injured on the job or finds himself or herself dealing with a debilitating condition, life can become challenging. Many questions come to mind, such as “How am I going to deal with finances? How will this condition impact my life? What options do I have? Where can I get answers?” All of these questions are reasonable. The answers can make a difference to both physical and mental recovery.
We have found that nurse case management can have a considerable impact.
Transitional Reinsurance Program Fees
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act) fundamentally changed the way health insurance was regulated in the United States. Reforms included ambitious changes to ensure that consumers have multiple health insurance coverage options, that states have flexibility in their markets, and that issuers and employers have guidance regarding new insurance underwriting practices, particularly as they apply to the individual and small group markets. The Transitional Reinsurance Program was established by Section 1341 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to help stabilize premiums in the individual market. The contributions are required from 2014 through 2016 and will be used to make reinsurance payments to health insurers that cover high-risk individuals in the individual market.
