1/ Ironic that in the latest "shake-down" of #NC physicians @BlueCrossNC starts out by saying that they are a "non-profit" seeking to drive down "the costs of delivering healthcare." Let's look at their CEO comp. in '20--$3.14M + 8 of their execs. received at least $1.33M in.....
2/ compensation in '19; you may remember back in Nov. '21, citing to the #NoSurprisesAct, #NCBlue demanded that 54 hospital based groups immediately agree to contract rate reductions in the range of -5% to -30% or face contract termination--thought the letter was "fake news".....
3/ and it wasn't as an NC practice manager who knew the BCBSNC VP who signed the letter called him & said "is this for real?" Yes it was, said the VP; anyway the latest iteration of @BlueCrossNC w/ 60-70% of the commercial market using it's oligopoly power is cited below; for....

In the #nc Senate primary I will be voting in later this spring, #medicaid expansion is already a hot topic. As a result, I decided to look into what has happened since 2010 when it comes to expanding Medicaid in NC. This thread is what I’ve found. #ncpol #faync
In 2013 SB4 passed and was signed into law by former Gov @PatMcCroryNC. The heading states “AN ACT… (3) TO REJECT THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT'S OPTIONAL MEDICAID EXPANSION.” You can read this law at…
Ironically, one thing SB4 did was repeal Section 49 of Session Law 2011-145 (…) when the intent was laid to set up a state exchange as Patient Protection Affordable Care Act allows.

The story of the #BuildBackBetter has yet to be written. Let’s examine the 50 Republican US Senators who are voting against lifting children out of poverty, education,elder care, affordable prescription drugs, child care & family leave? What does this mean for YOUR STATE? Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Richard Shelby is voting against the #ChildTaxCredit “The Center on Budget &Policy Priorities found making the program permanent would benefit 93% of #AL children,lift 162,000 #AL children above/closer to poverty line & benefit 480,000 #AL children under 17. Image
#ALABAMA Sen. Tommy Tuberville has offered you no solutions; he has admitted that he “wouldn’t have a clue” how to address the current pandemic and recently told people that $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits was just “too much.”… Image

@ZachJonesForTX @mass_marion 1/ Zach--where do I begin? 1. For those thinking that the #NoSurprisesAct is about out of network (OON)/balance billing (BB)--maybe 3-6% of a hospital based group--sorry--it's all about in network rates; the vaulted @USCBOcostest calculated that the Energy & Commerce bill in '19.
@ZachJonesForTX @mass_marion @USCBOcostest 2/ would "save" ~$20B over 10 yrs. BUT 80% of that savings would come from the declination in network rates; my opinion you say? Actually no--last week @BlueCrossNC wrote to over 50 physician groups in #NC citing the NSA and NC state law--groups in Rad., Anesthesia & EM--and....
@ZachJonesForTX @mass_marion @USCBOcostest @BlueCrossNC 3/ demanded (and we have letters to support the same) between -5% to -20% in current participation agreements (cuts rumored to be as high as -30%) else #BCBSNC would consider terminating the agreement b/c the #NSA & the #QPA as calculated would permit "interim reductions".....

1/ Lookie here: CMS blocks 3 UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans from 6 states--for failing to meet their mandated "medical loss ratios" (MLRs) where they're supposed to spend 85% of the premium dollar on health care between '18-'20 yet @UHC says..…
2/ "COVID-19" was the reason that they didn't make their MLR requirements--really? How was COVID-19 a factor in '18 & '19? Folks didn't defer care then for COVID-19 w/ first reported US cases in December--so what's your new excuse--give us one that we believe--chickens coming ..

We’d like to introduce you to a #ProudBoy in #Greensboro #NC.

He's got a history of criminal violence, fraud, and theft.

He’s a proud #WhiteNationalist, who uses his retail biz to enable a career-long hobby of being a cyber predator.


This is Joseph aka Joey aka “Psycho” Maness.

Joey is about to find out that his “White Privilege” Card has been declined.

2/ Guy in a goatee and a red shirt with the 2nd ammendment text
Joey Maness is a proud Proud Boy. His Telegram bio reads: “Proud Western Chauvinist who refuses to apologize”.

Here are a number of unapologetic selfies he shared, sporting Proud Boy attire and memorabilia.

Pls allow me to take a minute to gather myself as we read the #NC DOI has sanctioned a health plan for non-compliance w/ NC’s OON “hold harmless” & presumably prudent lay person —North Carolina slaps Humana with fine over out-of-network, emergency coverage…
2/ Despite many requests & data showing non-compliance w/ PLP over these many yrs., it has been about 12+ yrs since @BlueCrossNC was sanctioned for illegally denying ED claims for ~$2M.
3/ Presser says that @Humana has exited the commercial insurance market in NC but still a major player in #MedicareAdvantage plans—so Commish @MikeCausey2020 how about @UHC, you have evidence of their non-compliance on multiple levels? What say you about a major plan in #NC?

Phil Berger, one of the most powerful politicians in North Carolina, said the CDC’s guidance on wearing masks is like its caution against eating raw cookie dough: “guidance to ignore.”

Any agency, entity, or department that relies on state funds in North Carolina may be afraid to contradict Phil Berger (in word or deed) because he controls the North Carolina Senate.
"A fundraising email sent Wednesday morning said the latest CDC guidelines aren’t based on science but a method by Dr. Anthony Fauci, the media and liberals to control the American people."… #NCPol

Today in #GRAHAMNC I went to a permitted March to the Polls lead by Rev Drumwright and others. Starting at a Black AME church, Rev Drumwright started the march by asking folks what our intentions were. TO VOTE the crowd chanted. Its the last day of Early Voting in #NC.
We then marched, escorted by police, about half a mile towards the center of Graham, chanting and singing. We moved slowly, because of the many elderly folks and families with small children. Graham is a small town in #AlamanceCounty.
Alamance County is known as "No Chance Alamance" because of rampant inequality and a judicial system generally known to be hostile to Black and Brown folks, and poor white folks. We believe that we can change that at the polls this year.

1/ #FL #EarlyVoting Explanation on why Dems Need such a Large Lead going into Election Day:

So many people were wondering why Dems need 653k to 900k lead going into 11/3/20. The main reason: 800k+ more Dems than Rs have asked for VBM ballots this year versus ----
2/ about equal numbers (D = R) in 2016. Other reasons: Voter registration numbers have shifted from about 330k D+ in 2016 to half that much lead in 2020. There, 100k+ more votes shifting from D to R. ---
3/ In 2016, D lead on election eve was 88k translating to 113k Trump win. People assume that the differential was about 200k (88k+113k). They wrongly assume that if on 11/2/20, Ds are leading by 200k, it would be a toss up and if Ds lead by more than 200k, Biden wins. ---

#NC #EarlyVoting by "Freeper" bort: Posted on 10/18/2020, 6:09:44 AM by bort

Here are the takeaways from this morning's early voting report from the NC State Board of Elections:

1) Republicans cut about 1.5 points from the Democrats lead in VBM/early in-person voting.
2/ 2) Votes cast: 665K/355K/408K (D/R/U registered voters)

3) Democrats have cast 310,000 more votes than Rs, but..

4) In 2016, Democrats cast--get this--exactly 310,000 more votes than Republicans in the entire early voting period, i.e., the exact same spread as today.
3/ In 2016, at the close of EV, Dems led Rs 1.3 million to 1 million VBM/EV cast.

5) Republicans have won 3 straight days of early voting so far, and are the odds-on favorite to win most (if not all) of the remaining in-person EV days, as Dem-heavy mail-in ballots ---
