High-deductible health plans (HDHPs) are a common cost-savings option for employers but may lead to underuse of necessary treatments because beneficiaries bear the full cost of health care, including medications, until a deductible is met.
To study whether the negative association between enrollment in high-deductible plans and health care utilization is driven by reverse moral hazard or favorable selection, by examining adults with and without a choice of plans.
To examine the associations among high-deductible health plan (HDHP) enrollment, cancer survivorship, and access to care and utilization.
Given increased enrollment in high-deductible health insurance plans and mandates from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, individualized price transparency tools are needed.
Persons with comprehensive health insurance use more hospital care than those who are uninsured or have high-deductible plans. Consequently, analysts generally assume that expanding coverage will increase society-wide use of inpatient services. However, a limited supply of beds might constrain this growth.
Insurance companies have implemented new policies including excessive prior authorization (PA) requirements, high-deductible plans, and complicated billing structures in an effort to curb rising health care costs. Studies investigating the real-time impact on providers and patients are emerging, but few within the field of dermatology have been published.
Because of the pain and opioid epidemic in the United States, there is a need to update clinician's knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding persistent pain across healthcare disciplines. The aim of this study was to determine if healthcare professionals can positively change their knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding chronic pain, following a pain neuroscience education (PNE) lecture and one year follow-up.
A fundamental question in health insurance markets is how do health care consumers dynamically optimize their medical utilization under non-linear insurance contracts? Our paper tests the neoclassical prediction that a fully forward-looking agent only responds to their expected end-of-year price. Our unique identification strategy studies families during the year of childbirth who will likely satisfy their annual deductible, thereby knowing their expected end-of-year price. We find that during the year of a...
The relationship between preexisting osteoarthritic pain and subsequent post-total knee arthroplasty (TKA) pain is not well defined. This knowledge gap makes diagnosis of post-TKA pain and development of management plans difficult and may impair future investigations on personalized care. Therefore, a set of diagnostic criteria for identification of acute post-TKA pain would inform standardized management and facilitate future research.
To develop and test the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of a cognitive behavioral therapy-based, internet-delivered self-management program for chronic low back pain (cLBP) in veterans.
Much of the pain care in the United States is costly and associated with limited benefits and significant harms, representing a crisis of value. We explore the current factors that lead to low-value pain care within the United States and provide an alternate model for pain care, as well as an implementation example for this model that is expected to produce high-value pain care.
We report a rare case of a 30-year-old female who had a long-standing history of middle aortic syndrome that was being managed nonsurgically. She presented with hypertension and buttock pain with plans to become pregnant. She underwent an aortoiliac bypass.
Patient postoperative pain is being increasingly reported in the field of hip preservation surgery. The visual analog scale (VAS) for pain is one of the most commonly utilized measures for perioperative pain assessment. Currently, there is limited understanding of clinically significant improvement in VAS pain.
Chronic pain education is an essential determinant for optimal chronic pain management. Given that attitudes and preferences are involved in making treatment decisions, identifying which factors are most influential to final year medical students' and general practitioners' (GPs) chronic pain management choices is of importance. This study investigates Swedish and Australian students' preferences with respect to a chronic pain condition, using a best-worst scaling (BWS) experiment, which is designed to rank...
Musculoskeletal (MSK) pain is frequently reported among adolescents and children and a common reason for consultation in primary care. Our aim is to examine its prevalence in 6-year old children in a general population and to assess associations with physical and psychosocial factors. Data from the Generation R Study, a population based cohort, was used. Prevalence and characteristics of MSK pain were assessed with parent-reported questionnaires at 6-years of age (N=6200). Demographics and data on physical ...
Children who develop greater negatively-biased recall of pain (ie, recalled pain is higher than the initial pain report) following surgery are at risk for developing chronic pain; therefore, identifying risk factors for the development of biased pain memories is important. Higher anxiety has been implicated in the development of greater negatively-biased recall of pain; however, studies have not examined anxiety at multiple time points before and after a surgery and its relationship to children's postsurgic...
This longitudinal case-control study aims to 1) compare symptoms and functioning in otherwise healthy adolescents with versus without a parent with chronic pain (Parent CP+/Parent CP-) 2) test adolescent sex as a moderator of the relation between parent CP group and child functioning, and 3) determine changes in adolescent pain over one year. Adolescents (n=140; ages 11-15) completed tests of pain responsivity and physical function, as well as self-report measures assessing pain characteristics, somatic sym...
States have considerable leeway in the options they are pursuing to design a buy-in plan that meets these goals. Buy-in plans need to make key decisions on four major issues: 1) whether plans are sold on or off exchange, 2) whether plans are run by the state or a Medicaid Managed Care Organization, 3) who is eligible to purchase plans, and 4) which benefits and providers will be covered and at what payment rates. Our goal is to clarify the implications of these choices with respect to the goals and with res...
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and chronic pain conditions commonly co-occur, and are both independently associated with suicidality; however, little is known about the impact of chronic pain on suicidality among individuals with GAD. The aim of this study was to examine the associations between comorbid GAD and chronic pain conditions with suicide ideation, plans, and attempts in a population-based sample.
Pain is a common debilitating symptom in pancreatic adenocarcinoma. This cohort study examined the use of, and factors associated with, pain-directed interventions for a high pain score in patients with non-curable pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
Pain is a pervasive problem that affects nearly half of the U.S. Veterans deployed in support of the Global War on Terror (Post-9/11 Veterans) and over half of the Post-9/11 Veterans with diagnosed traumatic brain injury (TBI). The goal of the current study was to identify pain phenotypes based on distinct longitudinal patterns of pain scores in light of pain treatment among Post-9/11 Veterans over five years of care using latent growth mixture analysis stratified by TBI status. Five pain phenotypes emerged...
Chronic pain patients enter treatment with different problem profiles making careful assessment a necessity for more individualized treatment plans. In this cross-sectional study we assigned 320 patients entering tertiary multidisciplinary pain treatment into four categories based on whether they scored low or high on the activity and the affective pain interference dimensions of the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI). To determine whether this categorization system delineates issues that should be assessed further...
