Good News for DCS Children!

April 13, 2018 · Leave a Comment 

It’s no secret that children – even infants – often languish for years in foster care.  The good news is this will change for children whose rights to a safe permanent home in a timely manner have been denied.  SB 1473 – recently signed into law – directs DCS to follow statute and its own policies to accomplish this – including ensuring the incredible number of substance-exposed newborns in the system have that opportunity as well.  At the same time, the bill protects parents’ due process rights.  Here’s the press release and other information.

Brokering the Broken

March 4, 2018 · Leave a Comment 

Opioid addiction, over-prescribing, drug treatment, diversion, doctor shopping, substance-addicted newborns, disruptive sober living homes.  These are all part of the discussion around addiction and recovery.  What’s finally also getting attention is the unthinkable harm “body brokers” pose to those in recovery.  SB 1451 is aimed at stopping them by imposing stiff criminal penalties and fines.

What is a “body”or a “client broker”?   Read more »

Right to Shop – the Next Big Thing in Healthcare

February 11, 2018 · 1 Comment 

Forbes’ article on Right to Shop – It’s the next big thing in Health Care –  is spot on!  And SB 1471 can make it happen in Arizona.  Check out how Jenny saves thousands every year  while managing her Crohn’s disease. But she doesn’t just save – under an insurance incentive program offered in New Hampshire and switching to a lower cost provider, she actually gets paid $500 per visit and pays no copay. Same drug, same delivery, same frequency, but higher quality one-on-one care at a fraction of the cost. See her story on NBC Nightly News. Read more »

Chiropractic – Better Care and Cost Savings

April 16, 2018 · Leave a Comment 

I agree with the Arizona Association of Chiropractic when they write: 

Chiropractic is the optimal, non-pharma treatment option for chronic pain patients with neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. If the state of Arizona intends to manage the healthcare costs and treatment of chronic pain and opioid use disorder patients effectively, chiropractic coverage should be extended to Arizona’s 1.7 million adults on Medicaid.  That’s why I sponsored SB 1086 this year.  Here’s the background: Read more »

Notice: Vacate your home in five days

Condominium owners could have their properties bought out from under them – unless the Legislature amends Arizona’s Condominium Act this session.  A few months ago ABC-15 reported how an investment group legally bought out 80% of the owners at a condominium complex – triggering a law allowing them to take over the remaining 20% of the properties even though they did not want to sell.
