EMBLEMHEALTH — EmblemHealth will lay off 250 employees, roughly 8 percent of its workforce, because of the insurer’s decision to change its IT provider, CEO Karen Ignagni said. The insurer, in the midst of a financial turnaround, is contracting with Trizetto, a subsidiary of Cognizant, which will replace its current IT platform, Cobal. That, Ignagni said, will create more opportunities for timely and efficient data processing but it will also automate much of the work done by current employees. In response to the layoffs, employees are planning a silent protest outside EmblemHealth’s New York City offices on Wednesday, said Sara Blackwell, a Sarasota, Florida, attorney who has made headlines representing laid off worked replaced by Cognizant.

WHAT WE’RE READING:
-CIGAR AFICIONADOS — Last week, I mention that House appropriators wanted to block the Food and Drug Administration from implementing its “deeming” rule to regulate tobacco products unless the agency exempted cigars. A few readers wrote that that sounded a bit absurd. Well, health groups agree as 31 of them, including the American Medical Association, the American Lung Association and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, say they strongly oppose the measure, according to POLITICO. Read the letter: http://bit.ly/1XGvqYu
...Congress wasn’t swayed. The House Appropriations Committee voted, 31-19, Tuesday to exempt e-cigarettes and other vapor products on the market from FDA regulation while requiring advertising and labeling aimed at keeping the stuff out of the hands of children, POLITICO’s Sarah Karlin-Smith reports. “The rule grandfathers cigars, little cigars, hookahs and other unregulated tobacco products.”
-ZIKA — The House appropriations committee approved a $21.3 billion FDA-agricultural bill, rejecting attempts by Democrats to include the White House's request for $1.9 billion in new Zika funding and killing Democratic bids to remove FDA-focused policy riders, according to POLITICO. http://bit.ly/26e3IYR
