Hispanic adults are as likely as White adults to say they are employed and are more likely than employed White adults to say they currently work solely at a location outside their home, contributing to increased exposure risk amid the #COVID19 pandemic. https://t.co/PTHTaYhchJ

Among similarly large and wealthy countries, the U.S. had among the highest excess mortality rates in 2020. And younger people were more likely to have died due to the #COVID19 pandemic in the U.S. than younger people in other countries. https://t.co/ZIrRMa6ev8

NEW: Nearly 3 million Medicare #PartD enrollees had out-of-pocket #prescriptiondrug spending above the catastrophic threshold in a recent 5-year period. The lack of a hard cap on out-of-pocket spending can expose enrollees to thousands of dollars in costs. https://t.co/efFVYnWMLa

Studies have found that #MedicaidExpansion significantly reduced the percentage of people with medical debt, reduced the average size of medical debt, and reduced the probability of having one or more medical bills go to collections in the past 6 months. https://t.co/HuenJ3pi7J

LGBT+ women are less likely to report having a recent mammogram or ever having a gynecological exam than non-LGBT+ women. Our analysis found that LGBT+ people are more likely to report receiving other preventive screenings, such as for #sexual health. https://t.co/d8IT1bFfRf

President Biden and some in Congress want up to $400 billion in new funding to expand access to Medicaid home and community-based services and boost the direct care workforce. In our updated analysis, we discuss more about how HCBS money could be used. https://t.co/E0wEqP9bl2

The number of people getting the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine is no longer decreasing and may even be showing signs of increasing slightly, in the face of growing cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. https://t.co/W0SXWcSdRN

Medicare, beneficiaries, private insurers & enrollees could save billions if the federal government was allowed to negotiate drug prices. Check out our new @KFF brief for a status report on this proposal & details of how negotiation would work under HR3. https://t.co/TI632hdXBk

"Louisiana has the lowest statewide average: Just 44.5% of the staff at its long-term care facilities have been at least partially vaccinated" Also. Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Wyoming all had rates of less than 50% https://t.co/6LCgUYCoxa

“It’s particularly egregious because they are trying to convince people with either normal memories or normal age-related decline that they are ill and they need a drug,” said Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman, a pharmacology professor. https://t.co/rSXb0jExvo via @khnews

Despite the ACA’s guarantees of free contraception coverage, even for women whose health plans are subject to the law’s requirements, obtaining the right product at no cost can be onerous. https://t.co/cIXK780WMi via @khnews

There are approximately 48 million kids under the age of 12 in the United States. None are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination yet.

"We’re talking about a lot of money here, too. According to Kaiser’s calculations, Missouri stands to make $1 billion in additional federal funds if this goes through. This is in addition to what the Medicaid expansion itself would ordinarily bring in." https://t.co/jIM1xm9YPl

Prior to the ACA, people of color were more likely to be uninsured than their White counterparts The ACA coverage expansions narrowed but did not eliminate these coverage disparities, leaving people of color facing increased challenges accessing care https://t.co/deTSvJTCws

This is important. But, it's probably not state Medicaid officials who are confused about the reversal of President Trump's immigration restrictions. It's lawfully present immigrants who have hesitated to seek care or enroll in public benefits out of confusion and fear. https://t.co/ARzkpgpY5F

The conversation in Congress right now is all about drug prices. But, with his recent executive order on promoting competition, President Biden quietly signaled a potential effort to address hospital consolidation and prices, too. @DrewAltman in @axios https://t.co/vI0sQ39LAo
