Today's early morning highlights from the major news organizations.

Kaiser Health News: CMS Identifies Hospitals Paid Nearly $1.5B In 2015 Medicare Billing Settlement
Kaiser Health News' Phil Galewitz reports: "A year after paying nearly $1.5 billion to more than a third of U.S. hospitals to resolve longstanding Medicare billing disputes, the Obama administration has disclosed who got paid. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, one of the nation’s largest academic medical centers, received nearly $16 million, more than any other hospital, according to data released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services." (Galewitz, 8/23)

Kaiser Health News: Geriatric ERs Reduce Stress, Medical Risks For Elderly Patients
Kaiser Health News' Anna Gorman reports: "The Mount Sinai Hospital emergency room looks and sounds like hundreds of others across the country: Doctors rush through packed hallways; machines beep incessantly; paramedics wheel stretchers in as patients moan in pain. “It’s like a war zone,” said physician assistant Emmy Cassagnol. “When it gets packed, it’s overwhelming. Our sickest patients are often our geriatric patients, and they get lost in the shuffle.” (Gorman, 8/23)

Kaiser Health News: Public Health Officials Struggle To Identify Sepsis Before It Becomes Deadly
Kaiser Health News' consumer columnist Michelle Andrews writes: "Sepsis kills more than 250,000 people every year. People at highest risk are those with weakened immune systems, the very young and elderly, patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer or kidney disease and those with illnesses such as pneumonia or who use catheters that can cause infections. But it can strike anyone, even a healthy child like Rory." (Andrews, 8/23)

The Wall Street Journal: Clinton To Offer Plan For Small Businesses
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is proposing a package of ideas aimed at helping small businesses, including a new standard deduction that could simplify tax filing and improvements to a little-used tax credit for companies that offer workers health insurance. (Meckler, 8/23)

The Associated Press: Pfizer Spends $14B On Medivation In Cancer Fight
Pfizer will pay about $14 billion to buy cancer drug developer Medivation in a cash deal aimed at fortifying its hold in one of the hottest and most lucrative areas of medicine. The New York drugmaker said Monday that the acquisition will stock its product portfolio with leading treatments for the most common cancers in men and women by adding Medivation's pricey prostate cancer treatment Xtandi to a lineup that already includes the breast cancer drug Ibrance. (8/22)

Politico: How Zika Could Change The Politics Of Late-Term Abortion
For years, most Americans have opposed abortions late in pregnancy. Zika could change that, potentially undermining support for a national ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy as more women infected with the virus find themselves in the crosshairs of the abortion wars if they choose to end their pregnancies. (Haberkorn, 8/22)

Politico: On Kimmel's Show, Clinton Mocks ‘failing Health’ Conspiracies
Hillary Clinton poked fun at the Donald Trump’s repeated claims that her health is failing Monday night, jokingly asking ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel to take her pulse while they spoke on his late-night TV show. The Democratic nominee’s physical well-being has been a topic of discussion on the campaign trail ever since Trump claimed she "lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS" last Monday. The allegation, a staple of right-wing media critiques of Clinton, was quickly denounced by her campaign, which pointed to a doctor’s letter released last year that pronounced her health “excellent.” (Lima, 8/23)

The New York Times: New York City Strives To Connect Poor Expectant Mothers With Doulas
The experience highlighted some of the hurdles facing a fledgling New York City health program to give low-income women free access to a resource that hospitals and insurers alike have long treated as a luxury for wealthy women seeking boutique births. Most doulas are present at delivery and later help the new mother care for her baby and give advice on breast-feeding. In 2015, the City Council and New York state started earmarking about $468,500 annually for the free program, called Healthy Women, Healthy Futures, as part of a broader initiative to address high rates of infant and maternal mortality among black New Yorkers as well as those women living in the city’s poorest neighborhoods. (Sharp, 8/22)
