The Virtual Doctor Will See You Now
A law that eases restrictions in the way telemedicine is delivered in Arkansas goes into effect in August and will help Arkansas hospitals expand their range of virtual services. The law will allow patients to receive telemedicine services wherever they happen to be, rather than having to visit a health care facility.  Making the patient travel to a health care office was "a pretty onerous burden," said Adam Greathouse, a health policy expert at the ERISA Industry Committee of Washington, a national association that advocates for large employers on health policies.

The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: A Medicare Time Bomb
Just over two years ago, Donald Trump gave a speech announcing his run for the presidency. In that speech, he promised that he would not cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. That promise became a centerpiece of his campaign. It was a key way for Trump to differentiate himself, as a matter of policy, from his Republican primary opponents – a distinction he happily and frequently pointed out. In the general election, the promise helped him appeal to voters who don’t traditionally support the GOP. But six months into his presidency, Trump has already betrayed those voters by breaking his promise. Indeed, ra...
