61. MEDICARE HOMECARE

CURRENTLY THERE IS A NATIONWIDE MOVEMENT TO SPEND FEDERAL "MEDICAID" DOLLARS MORE EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY BY THE MEANS OF NON-MEDICAL CREATIVITY.

AS AN EXAMPLE, OREGON ANNUALLY RECEIVES OVER $ 6 BILLION BUT STUDIES SHOW ONLY FIVE PERCENT OF THESE "MEDICAID" BENEFICIARIES ARE IN FACT SPENDING OVER HALF OF THIS BUDGET BECAUSE OF THEIR CHRONIC CONDITIONS BEING TREATED AS 9-1-1 MEDICAL.

SUBSEQUENTLY,THE USE OF PREVENTATIVE ADVISORS AND SUPPORTIVE TECHNOLOGY ARE PROVING TO GIVE IMPORTANT SAVINGS.

LIKEWISE, ANNUALLY OVER $ 5 BILLION IN FEDERAL "MEDICARE" FUNDS FLOW INTO OREGON AND HERE TOO HOLISTIC HEALTHCARE WOULD BE GOOD.

SPECIFICALLY, QUALITY IMPROVEMENTS NOW BEING TESTED UNDER "MEDICAID" INCLUDE...

1. INSTALL AIR CONDITIONING TO STOP ELDERLY HEAT STROKE
2. DELIVER SPECIAL DIETARY MEALS TO SHIELD DIABETES
3. FREE TRANSPORTATION FOR SPECIAL HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
4. ASSIGNMENT OF NAVIGATOR FOR ONE-ON-ONE LIFESTYLE HEALTH CORRECTIONS

HOWEVER, THE PROPOSAL OF PROVIDING WEEKLY IN-HOME CARE FOR SELECTED "MEDICAID" OR "MEDICARE" CONSUMERS HAS NOT YET BEEN EXPLORED AS AN INNOVATION AGAINST FUTURE HEALTH RISKS AND COSTLY TREATMENTS.

HOPEFULLY THIS IMPORTANT ACCOMMODATION WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE, UNFORTUNATELY HOWEVER, TODAY'S FEDERAL "MEDICARE" WEBSITE CLEARLY STATES:

A. YES FOR DOCTOR ORDERED EXPENSIVE MEDICAL NURSING OR OTHER SPECIALTY HOME CARE

B. NO FOR DELIVERED MEALS, HOMEMAKER SERVICES OR PERSONAL CARE
