Calibrating a paracatadioptric camera by the property of the polar of a point at infinity with respect to a circle.

Two methods are presented for calibrating a paracatadioptric camera. A sphere in 3D space is projected to two parallel circles on which two tangents of a point and its antipode are parallel on the unit viewing sphere and intersect at the point at infinity. The direction of the polar of the point at infinity is orthogonal to the direction of the point at infinity with respect to the circle. The imaged circular points and orthogonal vanishing points can be obtained to solve the intrinsic camera parameters. Si...

Basic versus supplementary health insurance: Access to care and the role of cost effectiveness.

In a model where patients face budget constraints that make some treatments unaffordable without health insurance, we ask which treatments should be covered by universal basic insurance and which by private voluntary insurance. We argue that next to cost effectiveness, prevalence is important if the government wants to maximize the welfare gain that it gets from its health budget. Conditions are derived under which basic insurance should cover treatments that are mainly used by high risk agents with low inc...

An Insurance Model for Risk Management of Process Facilities.

Most existing risk management models for process industries do not consider the effect of insurance coverage, which results in an overestimation of overall risk. A model is presented in this article to study the effect of insurance coverage of health, safety, environmental, and business risks. The effect of insurance recovery is modeled through the application of adjustment factors by considering the stochastic factors affecting insurance recovery. The insurance contract's conditions, deductibles, and polic...

The purpose of this study was to examine the role of fear of catastrophic health expenditures and unrealis...

Eligibility for Supplemental Service-Disabled Veterans' Insurance. Final rule.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), in this final rule, amends its regulations governing the Service-Disabled Veterans' Insurance (S-DVI) program in order to explain that a person who was granted S-DVI as of the date of death is not eligible for supplemental S-DVI because the insured's total disability did not begin after the date of the insured's application for insurance and while the insurance was in force under premium-paying conditions.

Horizon Hair of Extremal Black Holes and Measurements at Null Infinity.

It is shown that the conserved charges on the event horizon and the Cauchy horizon associated with scalar perturbations on extremal black holes are externally measurable from null infinity. This suggests that these charges have the potential to serve as an observational signature. The proof of this result is based on obtaining precise late-time asymptotics for the radiation field of outgoing perturbations.

Strengthening insurance partnerships in the face of climate change - Insights from an agent-based model of flood insurance in the UK.

Impact of Affordable Care Act Insurance Expansion on Pre-Hospital Access to Care: Changes in Adult Perforated Appendix Admission Rates after Medicaid Expansion and the Dependent Coverage Provision.

The ACA changed the landscape of insurance coverage, allowing young adults to remain on their parents' insurance until age 26y (Dependent Coverage Provision [DCP]) and states to optionally expand Medicaid up to 133% of the federal poverty level. While both improved insurance coverage, little is known about the ACA's impact on observed receipt of timely access to acute care. The objective of this study was to compare changes in insurance coverage and perforation rates among hospitalized adults with acute app...

Impact of Insurance Coverage on Outcomes in Primary Breast Sarcoma.

Private insurance is associated with better outcomes in multiple common cancers. We hypothesized that insurance status would significantly impact outcomes in primary breast sarcoma (PBS) due to the additional challenges of diagnosing and coordinating specialized care for a rare cancer. Using the National Cancer Database, we identified adult females diagnosed with PBS between 2004 and 2013. The influence of insurance status on overall survival (OS) was evaluated using the Kaplan-Meier estimator with log-rank...

High-deductible Health Plan Enrollment Among Adults Aged 18-64 With Employment-based Insurance Coverage.

High-deductible health plans (HDHPs) are health insurance policies with higher deductibles than traditional insurance plans. Individuals with HDHPs pay lower monthly insurance premiums but pay more out of pocket for medical expenses until their deductible is met. An HDHP may be used with or without a health savings account (HSA). An HSA allows pretax income to be saved to help pay for the higher costs associated with an HDHP (1). This report examines enrollment among adults aged 18-64 with employmentbased p...

Monte Carlo and analytic modeling of an Elekta Infinity linac with Agility MLC: Investigating the significance of accurate model parameters for small radiation fields.

To explain the deviation observed between measured and Monaco calculated dose profiles for a small field (i.e., alternating open-closed MLC pattern). A Monte Carlo (MC) model of an Elekta Infinity linac with Agility MLC was created and validated against measurements. In addition, an analytic model which predicts the fluence at the isocenter plane was used to study the impact of multiple beam parameters on the accuracy of dose calculations for small fields.
