17 Clinical Trials Coverage All group or individual commercial plans must cover routine patient care costs for trials participationIncludes FEHBP plans, but not self-insured plans (ERISA plans)Preemption provision protects existing state laws & voluntary agreementsDespite increasing expansion of coverage for routine care costs in clinical trials across the US (more than half the states and DC provide such coverage), the scope of this coverage varies considerably.The health care reform package includes provisions pulled directly from the Access to Cancer Clinical Trials Act of legislation. Effective immediately upon enactment, it:1. Requires all commercial health insurance plans offering group or individual coverage to pay for the routine patient care costs associated with participation in high-quality clinical trials (phases I to IV) for cancer or other life-threatening disease or condition.2. Specifically includes health plans offered through the Federal Employee Health Benefit Program (FEHBP). But it does not include coverage for the millions of people enrolled in employer-sponsored plans that self insure and operate under ERISA or who are state employees enrolled in state self-insured plans.3. Coverage does extend to clinical trials conducted outside the state in which the patient resides. It does not, however, require coverage for out of network services unless those benefits are otherwise provided under the plan.4. Includes preemption provision protecting validity of State clinical trials policy for State regulated health insurance plans that is in addition to this new federal coverage.acscan.org (2013)

23 Cancer Incidence Trends: State vs US Percentage of change over 5 years* Breast Colon Kidney Lung Melanoma Non-Hodgkin PancreasLymphomaThis chart shows the percentage of increase or decrease in the incidence for 7 types of cancer over a period of 5 years for both Florida and the United States. Florida did better than the United States in reducing lung cancer, while there was a rise in the breast cancer and melanoma rates during this period of time. Both Florida and the United States experienced a substantial drop in the rate of colon cancer.Note: This is the most up-to-date data available for this slide’s topic.Source: National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

24 Payer Mix: State vs US1 * † The payer mix shows where people get their health benefits. Higher or lower rates of Medicare or Medicaid, compared to the national average, can reflect differences in state population demographics. For example, a smaller number of people with Medicaid and a higher percentage without insurance suggest the local population might have a high number of the “working poor”—individuals not receiving insurance through their employers and making too much to qualify for public assistance but not enough to be able to afford insurance on their own.TRICARE serves:Active duty service membersNational Guard and Reserve membersRetirees, their families, survivors and certain former spouses worldwideTRICARE brings together:Military health careCivilian health care professionals, institutions, pharmacies and suppliersNotes:Kaiser Family Foundation is the only source available for comparing all categories during the same year, with being the most recentThis is the most up-to-date data available for this slide’s topicSources:Kaiser Family Foundation.

26 Employment and Health Coverage: State vs US Higher rates of people without insurance might reflect the number/percentage of employers offering insurance to their employees. During the past year, the unemployed rate has dropped, while the uninsured rate has remained steady. The uninsured have poorer access to needed therapies. In light of health care reform, the uninsured rates should drop even more once the new Health Insurance Exchanges (HIXs) are put in place in Although Florida’s governor and legislature have refused to establish an HIX, the federal government would assume responsibility for running one in the state after January 1,Note: This is the most up-to-date data available for this slide’s topic.Sources:Kaiser Family Foundation.

27 Medicare and Medicaid: State vs US Percentage of the total population 1Medicare is the federally funded program providing health benefits to those over the age of 65 (and the disabled). Medicaid is a state-administered program receiving federal matching funds to provide coverage for the indigent. Dual eligibles are individuals who qualify for both programs. Medicaid covers services and therapies Medicare does not. The number of dual eligibles is often reported as a percentage of the Medicare population.As explained earlier in this presentation, health care reform is expected to expand Medicaid enrollment by 25.8% in Illinois and 27.4% in the United States between 2013 and 2019.Medicare has some cost-sharing requirements—20% for physician services and therapies administered in the physician office. For dual eligibles, Medicaid picks up these costs.Notes:Medicare drug coverage here indicates coverage for self-administered or oral therapies. These numbers do not reflect coverage for Genentech’s office-administered products but it’s some indication of access for beneficiariesThis is the most up-to-date data available for this slide’s topicSources:Kaiser Family Foundation.

29 Medicaid in Florida Florida’s Medicaid program includes: HMOs and provider service networks (PSNs)MediPass, a primary-care case management programFlorida KidCare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, including MediKids for those under age 5, Florida Healthy Kids for those ages 5 to 18, and the Children’s Medical Services Network for those 18 and younger with special health care needsFlorida’s Medicaid enrollment has swelled under continuing joblessness and is expected to surpass 3 million in the fiscal year. This is resulting in thousands of beneficiaries being added to the state’s fee-for-service (FFS) and Medicaid HMO programs and tighter control by the HMOs over prescription drug useThe Legislature is expanding Medicaid reform by increasing the use of HMOs to deliver care to Florida’s Medicaid beneficiaries. In the 5 counties currently under a Medicaid reform pilot, enrollment in an HMO or a PSN is mandatory. Legislation requires most PSNs to apply for conversion from a FFS to a capitated payment model by September 2012, raising doubts about whether FFS can survive reformMedicaid rates are different for each county and are based on FFS and financial data. A 5% reimbursement cut for providers has been proposedSource: HealthLeaders-InterStudy. Miami Market Overview. Nashville, TN: HealthLeaders-InterStudy; March 2011.Source: HealthLeaders-InterStudy.

32 Go. Make something happen. Linchpin ManifestoI am an artist. • I take initiative • I do the work, not the job. • Without critics, there is no art. • I am a Linchpin. I am not easily replaced. • If it’s never been done before, even better. • I make it happen. Every day. • Every interaction is an opportunity to make a connection. • Energy is contagious. The more I put in, the more the world gives back. • I raise the bar. I know yesterday’s innovation is today’s standard. • Rule-breaking works better and is worth the effort. • I will not be brainwashed into believing in the status quo. • There is no resistance if I don’t allow it to defeat me. • I embrace a lack of structure to find a new path. • I am surprising. (And often surprised). • I donate energy and risk to the cause. • I turn charisma into leadership. • The work matters.Go. Make something happen.Source:Book: Linchpin: Are You Indespensible?
