Community Oncology Alliance Supports Bipartisan “Phair Pricing” PBM Reform Act

Ensuring Patients Receive All Negotiated Discounts and Rebates at Point-of-Sale is Important Step to Reforming Broken Drug Pricing System

PBMs have been secretly reaping the benefits of discounts and rebates at the expense of cancer patients for too long.”

— Ted Okon, executive director of COA

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, May 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) strongly supports H.R. 5958, the “The Phair Pricing Act of 2018” introduced today by Representatives Doug Collins (R-Ga.) and Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas). This bipartisan bill will ensure that the savings that pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) negotiate are passed along to patients at the point-of-sale.

Under Medicare Part D, PBMs negotiate discounts and rebates to drug list prices with pharmaceutical manufacturers on behalf of insurance companies, employers, and the government. However, because of the convoluted and opaque nature of PBM contracts, these savings are often not passed on to lower the price of prescriptions for patients but instead serve to increase PBM profit margins. The result is that patients are stuck paying the full, inflated list price on medications, even though their health plan has received discounts and never paid that list price.

“This legislation ensures that the savings PBMs negotiate are passed along to patients at the pharmacy counter and not pocketed by these middlemen corporations. PBMs have been secretly reaping the benefits of discounts and rebates at the expense of cancer patients for too long. We strongly support Representatives Collins and Welch for helping reform this convoluted system so that it helps patients, not middlemen corporate profits,” said Ted Okon, executive director of COA.

“Patients who face high deductibles and prescription drug costs should be receiving the benefit of all the discounts and rebates that PBMs negotiate, supposedly on their behalf,” said Steven L. D’Amato, RPh, BSPharm, executive director of New England Cancer Specialists. “This legislation is an important step in the right direction to finally reforming a system that too-often benefits PBM middlemen and not the patients.”

Community oncologists have been sounding the alarm on PBM abuses in recent years. Hired by insurance companies, employers, and the government to manage drug benefits, PBMs have the power to negotiate drug costs, determine which drugs will be included on plan formularies and control how those drugs are dispensed. PBMs claim to be working to lower drug costs, but year after year, patients continue to pay more, as documented by the rising gap between list prices of drugs and true, net prices realized by PBMs.

Additionally, PBMs often perversely make more money by delaying or denying patients’ access to necessary medications. COA has documented real-life patient horror stories from practices and physicians about patients battling cancer who have suffered at the hands of PBMs due to delayed coverage decisions, denial of coverage, arguments with physicians over proper treatment, and failure to receive medications in a timely manner.

COA is a non-profit organization singularly dedicated to advocating for community oncology patients and practices. We stand ready to help Representatives Collins and Welch advance this important legislation, as well as provide insight into the impact of PBMs on cancer patients, providers, and the overall health care system. It is time for Congress to put a stop to PBM abuses by introducing greater transparency, stopping their nickel-and-diming fee structures that have pushed drug prices higher and higher, and requiring them to allow patients to receive medications at the pharmacy of their choice.


The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) is a non-profit organization dedicated solely to preserving and protecting access to community cancer care, where the majority of Americans with cancer are treated. COA leads community cancer clinics in navigating an increasingly challenging environment to provide efficiencies, patient advocacy, and proactive solutions to Congress and policymakers.

Wartburg Hosts Service of Prayer & Remembrance

The Schaeffer Family in the Jean Schaeffer Garden

Tree named in honor of the United Lutheran Church

Pastor Fryer blesses the new garden

A Celebration of Life on Sunday, May 20, 2018 paying tribute to loved ones including residents, registrants, loved ones and staff within the Wartburg community.

I felt that the best way to honor our mother’s legacy was to name a garden for her at the Wartburg that we can come and visit, and remember all the times she spent enjoying the beauty of the garden.”

— Peter Schaeffer

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, May 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mount Vernon, NY, May 20, 2018 – Wartburg, an award-winning provider of comprehensive residential and healthcare services for seniors, hosted a Service of Prayer & Remembrance – A Celebration of Life on Sunday, May 20, 2018 paying tribute to loved ones including residents, registrants, loved ones and staff within the Wartburg community. The Celebration of Life is a long standing Wartburg tradition, providing comfort and solace to all participants as they come together to reflect on the lives of their loved ones.

Reverend Carol E. A. Fryer, Wartburg Director of Spiritual Care, presided over the celebration in Wartburg’s historic chapel. The celebration was attended by over 70 individuals including Wartburg benefactors, staff, alumni, residents, family members and members of the local community.

“It was an honor to welcome those who participated in our 2018 spring ecumenical Service of Prayer and Remembrance, said Dr. David Gentner, Wartburg President and CEO. “While the type of services and population we serve has evolved, the deeply-rooted family values remain constant. We are grateful that so many families have allowed Wartburg to be part of their family, even if only for a brief time. It is my hope that this dedication event helped families find some measure of peace and comfort.”

The service also included the dedication of Wartburg legacy gifts– gardens, benches, nursing stations, trees and bricks – named in honor or memory of loved ones over the past year. Nestled among Wartburg’s 34-acre exquisite campus, in sitting gardens and along walkways, these legacy gifts offer residents, families and staff outdoor sanctuaries to relax and reflect. These peaceful serenity gardens fulfill our mission bringing together nature and nurture, a vital part of the continuum of care that holds our Wartburg community together.

Following the blessing of each of these gifts, guests gathered in the garden named for Wartburg’s assisted living resident Jean Schaeffer. Her family, came together to celebrate her life through sharing their favorite memories. Peter Schaeffer explained, “I felt that the best way to honor our mother’s legacy was to name a garden for her at the Wartburg that we can come and visit, and remember all the times she spent enjoying the beauty of the garden.”

“These legacy gifts not only allow us to celebrate memories, they also help beautify our campus.” said Angela Ciminello, Wartburg Vice President of Development and Marketing, “We are incredibly thankful to our donors for their generous gifts that allow Wartburg to continue to provide compassionate, innovate care to our residents, rehabilitation patients and those aging at home.”

Wartburg, located in Westchester County, NY, offers integrated, comprehensive senior care services for all stages of life. Unlike conventional retirement communities, they provide a wide range of services to both residents living on campus and people in their own homes. From independent, assisted living and award-winning nursing home care to inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation, home care and adult day care services, their continuing care approach has earned them a trusted reputation in Westchester. They also provide caregiver support every at every stage, with an array of options to find the level of care considers the whole family.Most recently, Wartburg received the 2016 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators and the 2015 Legacy Award from the Westchester County Chapter of the Links. In addition, Wartburg was named one of the "Best Nursing Homes in New York State", by U.S. News & World Report for the seventh consecutive year in 2017.

Viper Equity Partners of Palm Beach Brings Private Equity Firms and Healthcare Together

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, May 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The market is hot, and the country's leading PE firms have turned their focus to the medical industry with core interest on Dental, Ophthalmology, Dermatology and Orthopedics. Physicians are looking to see what opportunities are available as practices across the country sell at record multiples, and it's just the beginning. The problem is getting the Doctors and Equity firms to work together and understand each other's needs. To facilitate this process a new breed of firm has developed and leading the pack is Viper Equity Partners of Palm Beach.

This boutique company works directly with the Physicians to explain the different options that are available for growth including credit facilities, debt programs and Private Equity deals. They guide the Physicians through the entire process by preparing their financial information, pitch decks and confidential memorandums and set realistic expectations for them. They then match each practice with a PE firm that is looking for certain add-ons or platforms at every stage. Having completed over 150 transactions totaling over 1.5 Billion dollars in revenues they have developed a platinum reputation in the PE World……Healthcare too!

Viper is made up of industry professionals each with over 25 years of experience in Finance, Mergers and Acquisitions and Equity Transactions. Having also come from the ownership side of the business they offer experience to both sides of the deal. Viper believes the next break out area will be Plastic Surgery and has been aggressively contracting with Plastic Surgery Offices around the country.

Their process is simple, one side of the business establishes relationships with PE firms and Finance Companies. They then go out and find exactly what the firm wants in terms of a Practice to partner with. The other side selects top Physician Practices across all specialties and then Viper contracts with them. The company then completes all diligence necessary and introduces them to the PE firms that are the right fit. The result is a faster more efficient deal flow with a balanced outcome. A true "win-win".

Dr. Joel Singer, the founder of Park Avenue Stem Cell, is calling on every American to join him in his support of the Wounded Warrior Project this Memorial Day.

We hope that every American remembers that Memorial Day is about more than just family, burgers, and hot dogs. America’s veterans deserve the support of the public every day.”

— Dr. Joel Singer

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Joel Singer, the founder of Park Avenue Stem Cell, is calling on every American to support the Wounded Warrior Project this Memorial Day. This organization provides support for injured veterans through a voluntary donation program 365 days a year.

Dr. Singer is himself a veteran of the US Army medical reserve corps during the Vietnam War. This allowed him to see first-hand the sacrifices American men and women in uniform make as they knowingly place themselves in harm’s way to protect America. Their dedicated service should be recognized every day of the year and he believes support for the Wounded Warrior Project is a great way to do this.

Support of veteran’s issues has become part of the fabric of daily life at Park Avenue Stem Cell. They’re a global pioneer in stem cell research offering treatments for arthritis, chronic inflammation, degenerative disorders and Alzheimer’s. A portion of every procedure they perform at their New York based clinic is donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The clinic is also involved in important research into the viability of using stem cell treatments to help with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD affects more than 10% of all American veterans according to The US Department of Veterans Affairs.

For veterans of the Vietnam War, the number is estimated to be about 31%. There’s a clear need for ground-breaking research like that being performed at Park Avenue Stem Cell and Dr. Singer is leading the way with his talented team of researchers.

More information on the Wounded Warrior Project can be found at support.woundedwarriorproject.org. Dr. Joel Singer wants every American to remember that Memorial Day is about more than just burgers, hot dogs, and fireworks. America’s veterans deserve the support of the public every day.

Dr. Joel Singer graduated from Queens College, The University of New York, where he studied biology and chemistry. He then went on to complete a Doctor of Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine. In 2007, he obtained an MBA from the George Washington University School of Business. While his educational pursuits have kept him busy, he’s also found time to support several worthy causes in addition to his ongoing support of the Wounded Warrior Project. That includes travelling around the world on behalf of charitable organizations providing free surgical services for children.

Jamie Lynn Guyden of Evolve Integrative Care to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

ROUND ROCK, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, May 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Too often in medicine today a doctor will treat a single condition or symptom by trying to intervene or manipulate the person on a biochemical level, such as shifting their hormones or treating pain with opioids. What might happen if instead, the doctor approached health in a manner that was holistic and bioenergetic rather than allopathic? What if they found new answers to disease, addressed the quantum field around the body, and guided the individual to self-heal? This kind of miracle is what Dr. Jamie Lunn Guyden now creates for her patients, and it’s one she experienced in her own personal journey after years of battling Lupus unsuccessfully. The shift in thinking and medical practice she once made is now being used to treat others and to help them heal and correct without traditional interventions. She has named it Evolve Integrative Care, a name she never realized would ring so true as she watches the evolution of herself and her clients everyday.

According to Dr. Guyden, the greatest medicine of all is to teach people not to need it. She helps patients rely on their own bodies, their own energy, and their own limitless potential to move beyond disease. Using the principles of bio-energetics (an easily understood meld of biology and energetics) she receives information by scanning the quantum field around the body and in turn, guides the body get the information it needs the successfully heal. She further offers all the understanding and tools for it to heal. The program she has built for clients requires some adjustments in nutrition and personal habits, and all those external things needed to nourish a client—physically, emotionally, spiritually– so that they can become the energetic beings they were meant to be. With this model, she engages with a client for six months.

Scanning the bio-field is very different from the type of medical scans we are familiar with. The Space Resonance Matching inherent to the scanning device that Dr. Guyden uses is derived from the science of Peter H. Fraser, LAc., who discovered the human body field, and later with the assistance of Harry Massey, the ProVision biotechnology that she utilizes. Bioenergetics integrates physics and biology and allows for the natural communication between our chemical bodies and our energy bodies, both of which are dependent on each other. Dr. Guyden notes that this novel way of viewing the body answers many questions in science that currently in biology we don't have answers to, like how a single fetal cell knows how to divide itself into multiple, unique cells and develop into a living, breathing baby. She believes that bioenergetics medicine is the future of our medical model.

Dr. Guyden graduated medical school in her late 20’s and is still a practicing doctor today. She went through additional medical training to get her degree in integrative and functional medicine. She no longer has signs or symptoms of Systemic Lupus and requires no medication for this autoimmune disease either. Dr. Guyden is delighted to have made this shift in practice (and life) and looks forward to sharing her passion and knowledge with clients who are also ready to live healthier, more energetic lives with purpose.

CUTV News will feature Dr. Jamie Lynn Guyden in an interview with Jim Masters on Tuesday, May 29 at 12:00 p. m. EDT.

Charles Laverty Announces USO Support this Memorial Day

Support the USO on Memorial Day with Charles Laverty

Support the USO on Memorial Day

The USO is a great organization who provides support for the families of America's fallen heroes. Charles Laverty calls on Americans to support the USO

Memorial Day is about remembering those who gave everything and honoring the sacrifice they and their loved ones made. That is why I choose to support the USO. ”

— Charles Laverty

NEWPORT BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — We all look forward to Memorial Day with its barbeques and other outdoor events. It’s so easy to get caught up in planning fun activities that we forget about honoring the men and women who sacrificed their lives for their country. Charles Laverty, healthcare policy expert and CEO of Advanced Bifurcation Systems, urges all Americans to find ways to show their gratitude. He believes one of the most significant ways to do this is to support organizations that help the families of the fallen.

A National Moment of Remembrance
The National Moment of Remembrance Act signed by Bill Clinton asks people to take a moment of silence at 3pm to pay respects to all the men and women who died in service of the country. While we enjoy the freedom these men and women made possible, we take a moment to acknowledge them.

Allegedly, the idea for this act came when children were touring Washington D.C. and their response to a question about the meaning of Memorial Day was that it was the day the pools opened. People now pause for a moment all over the country, cars drive with headlights on, people wave flags, trains blow their whistles, and thousands of Major League Baseball fans take a moment to remember.

Ceremonies and parades
Other ways in which Americans offer their support is to visit cemeteries and place flowers or flags on the graves of fallen soldiers or attend parades in their honor.

In Washington D.C. the largest Memorial Day Parade takes place, featuring many military high school and college bands. Active duty military personnel, veteran’s organizations and historical re-enactors participate in the parade. Arlington National Cemetery, where many soldiers have been laid to rest, is visited by many people on Memorial Day.

Support for organizations
Charles Laverty, a commentator on the U.S. healthcare industry, urges Americans to take their support a step further and donate to organizations like the USO https://www.uso.org/programs/support-for-families-of-the-fallen. The USO is located at the Dover Air Force Base and has a vast network of centers throughout the world. It has been supporting dignified transfers since 1991 and offers comfort to the families of the fallen.

The USO partners with other organizations such as the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and together they provide Survivor Resource Kits to those who have received tragic news. The USO also supports various TAPS camps and retreats, including Taps Kid’s Campouts where kids can connect with others who are going through a similar experience.

Shana De Caro, a partner at De Caro & Kaplen, LLP, and secretary of the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA), explains why the firm introduced the Traumatic Brain Injury Scholarship, “Each year we allocate a portion of our firm’s fees to brain injury education, prevention, and advocacy. We introduced our scholarship in 2017 as a way to assist brain injury survivors who are pursuing a college education in the United States and were deeply moved by the number of outstanding applications we received. The bravery of the students, who choose not to allow their injury to deter pursuit of their dreams, continues to be an inspiration for us. We hope that this year’s scholarship will help a student to reach their goals.”

Applications for the 2018 Brain Injury Scholarship can be made on De Caro & Kaplen’s website at https://brainlaw.com/traumatic-brain-injury-scholarship-fund/.

The winner of the 2018 award will be announced on the firm’s website in September.

The New York personal injury law offices of De Caro & Kaplen, LLP focuses their practice on legal representation of traumatic brain injury survivors whose injuries were caused by vehicle collisions, unsafe buildings, dangerous construction sites, and medical malpractice.
