MediCal is California’s version of Medicaid; a state/federal health insurance program for individuals who have poverty-level income and few-to-no assets. MediCare is the Federal health insurance program for Americans age 65 and older and for certain disabled Americans. Don’t get MediCal confused with MediCare. To learn more about MediCal, visit website . MediCal covers children, the elderly, blind and/or disabled, and people who are eligible to receive federally assisted income.

If the alcoholic strikes his head, the radiologist receives $1200 to look at the MRI. My insurer is required by statute to provide coverage for mental health services up to about $2000 per year. Yet to treat the primary alcoholism, the insurer will pay…$2000. And if he abruptly stops drinking for a week, the hospital is paid tens of thousands of dollars to help him through withdrawal– only to turn him out to drink again. This is the total amount provided for all services, and is not paid for any treatment deemed ‘residential’. On the other hand, there is no limit on payment for orthopedic injuries.

The insured alcoholic is covered for the $1800 surgeon’s fee for a fractured kneecap- and more for the incidental hospital bill and the bills for physical therapy.

Likewise, at some point radiologists decided that they could stick needles into kidneys as accurately as any surgeon, and soon radiologists were awash in black ink, and learning to stick needles pretty much anywhere. Rather than narrowing anesthesiology, the answer to devaluation was found by moving into critical care and pain medicine and asserting the roles of anesthesiologists as physicians. Similarly, cardiologists did themselves and their patients well when they laid claim to angioplasty, and called themselves ‘interventional’.

The new technology brought public respect and money, which then yielded an explosion of new treatments.

Some medical students become cardiovascular surgeons, the plumbers of medicine. Others choose to nail bones together, taking pleasure in the simplicity of hand tools. Still others find a good living looking at see-through images of body parts; often a day or two after the images have been used for their intended purpose.

Resources are thin for the unemployed and uninsured mentally ill, and the field of psychiatry deserves kudos for attempting to meet the needs of this population in return for little financial gain. But for patients with resources, we must recognize and advocate that mental health care is as important as treatment for a torn ACL, and deserves equitable reimbursement.

The abilities to laugh, to work, and to love are as vital as the ability to return to beach volleyball. Psychiatrists must realize that at some point, expectations of relatively low reimbursements and medical standing become self-fulfilling prophecies, as our capitalist society tends to value those most who value themselves.

Some of the prominent players mentioned in the report are DePuy Synthes, Inc., Biomet, Inc., CONMED Corporation, Smith & Nephew plc, Arthrex, Inc., ArthroCare Corporation, Claims company and Stryker Corporation. The research report further talks about the key companies in the orthopedic soft tissue surgical procedure market in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. Detailed analysis of these players including Claims company overview, financial overview, business strategies, and recent development is discussed in the study.

KIEV, March 30 (Reuters) – Ukraine, the world’s top exporter of sunflower oil, has increased its seaborne exports of the commodity by around 71.6% so far in the 2019-20 season, preliminary data from the APK-Inform consultancy showed on Monday.

Seaport exports of sunflower oil totalled 2.937 million tonnes so far in the 2019-20 season, which runs from August to September, up from 1.712 million tonnes in the same period in 2018-19 season, according to the consultancy.

And as self-serving as it may be, psychiatrists, as the voices, faces, and business representatives of mental health, will raise the status and treatment of their patients as they work to raise the scientific, and yes, economic, status of themselves as physicians. The correction of societal bias and the resultant devaluation of our services will require constant efforts to educate, negotiate, and assert the value of mental health care in a healthy society.

The U.S., Japan, and Europe market for orthopedic soft tissue surgical procedure has been classified on the basis of indication into gluteal tendon repair, ACL reconstruction, lateral epicondylitis, vaginal prolapse, rotator cuff repair, and Achilles tendinosis repair. In 2013, the ACL reconstruction segment accounted for the largest share in the market and is anticipated to maintain its dominance between 2014 and 2020. ACL injuries are common among sports players and require a surgical procedure.
