WHEN IN ROME — Rome Memorial Hospital’s board of trustees announced Tuesday the 130-bed hospital in Oneida County will affiliate with Syracuse-based St. Joseph’s Health. But the collaboration is by no means a merger. http://politi.co/25kuRJf

THE OTHER FIGHT FOR $15 — At a rally in front of the Senate chambers Tuesday, lawmakers and advocates for health care and social services nonprofits called for a $15-an-hour minimum wage, and for budget funding should the state move to enact one. POLITICO New York’s Josefa Velasquez has more: http://politi.co/25kvQZQ
WHAT’S CHANGED AT RIKERS? — The answer, according to Crain’s, is not much. “Two health care workers who remain at Rikers said they haven’t seen any improvements, either, and have yet to receive any additional training or orientation. ‘Clinically, I haven’t really noticed a difference,’ said a mental-health treatment aide at Rikers, who declined to be named. He said he did have a 10-minute interview about his job duties before NYC Health + Hospitals took over. http://bit.ly/1S4Ctpx
YOU’RE OUT — The New York City Council passed legislation, by a vote of 44-3, prohibiting the use of all tobacco products—including smokeless chewing tobacco—at any ticketed sporting event in the city. http://on.wsj.com/25kYryq
MEDICAID EQUALITY — U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer was in Binghamton on Monday promoting his legislation mandating that Medicaid provide equal treatment and coverage for in-home services, so that more people could be transitioned out of institutions. http://press.sn/1S4DiPa
MAN OF STEEL — Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a steel beam, which was raised and placed atop the eight-story, 628,000-square-foot facility, at the University at Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

COMING ATTRACTIONS — Happy birthday. The Affordable Care Act turns 6 on Wednesday and to celebrate, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether Obamacare's birth control coverage requirement violates the rights of religious organizations like Catholic dioceses and Christian schools, POLITICO reports. “The suit, Zubik v. Burwell, will mark the court's second case on the birth control requirement and the fourth on the Affordable Care Act. … Seven groups are challenging an accommodation created by the Obama administration that allows nonprofits with religious ties — such as the Catholic diocese of Washington, Geneva College and the Little Sisters of the Poor order of Catholic nuns — to avoid directly providing birth control in their employee health plans. Instead, those groups document their opposition with the government or their insurer, who then provides birth control directly to the employees. The groups argue even that notification makes them complicit in providing some forms of contraception they oppose on religious grounds. They want no link - however tenuous it may be - between them and the distribution of contraception that they say is akin to abortion.”
ACROSS THE RIVER: Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday the state-funded program that pairs opioid overdose victims with recovery coaches is making a “huge difference” in the five pilot counties in which it has been set up. Christie, during a press conference at Monmouth Medical Center, said the Recovery Coach Program could expand to 11 of the state’s 21 counties if the $1.7 million budget allocation he announced during January's State of the State is passed. http://politi.co/1LF5prw
PHARMA REPORT: The Wall Street Journal reports: “Eli Lilly & Co. said Tuesday that it had won regulatory approval for its injection to treat plaque psoriasis, one of several new drugs the company is hoping to launch this year.” http://on.wsj.com/1S4BjKK

-PAY ATTENTION TO THIS — A fifth person has died in Guinea from the Ebola virus, according to Reuters. “The latest case was detected in Macenta prefecture, about 200 kilometers from the village of Korokpara where the four other recent Ebola-related deaths occurred.” http://reut.rs/1S4C2LR
-FROM FLORIDA — One of the leading candidates to become Florida's next insurance commissioner has been seeking to do business with the same companies he may soon regulate, POLITICO Florida has learned. A business owned by state Rep. Bill Hager has sent solicitation offers to insurers advertising him as an expert witness in any ongoing lawsuits.
Hager, who is expected to be interviewed by Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater on Wednesday to replace outgoing insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty, defended the correspondence, saying he was simply participating in "the American free market." POLITICO Florida’s Christine Sexton has more: politi.co/21Fx4Ky
-ON THE OTHER HAND — Public health officials love the idea of a soda tax. It seems so intuitive — make people pay more for the stuff that’s bad for them. Worked with cigarettes, right? Well, Catherine Rampell, an opinion writer for the Washington Post says it’s not so simple. http://wapo.st/1S4CXMd
-WHERE DO ADULTS GO? — Kaiser Health News has an interesting story on how more children are surviving with sickle cell only to find there aren’t many physicians who know how to treat adults. “For many years, most people with sickle cell died in childhood or adolescence, and the condition remained in the province of pediatrics. During the past two decades, advances in routine care have allowed many people to live into middle age and beyond.” http://bit.ly/1Mku3Oj
TODAY'S TIP — Comes from the Cleveland Clinic: “Talking to your kids about violence and terrorism can be tough. But it's important.” http://cle.clinic/1WF7qVg
