ICD-10? NO BIGGY - POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez examines the ICD-10 conversion one year later. Despite doomsday predictions, it looks like the changeover has gone well. Last August, three months before the start date, POLITICO New York reached out to several health care systems and providers to gauge how they were preparing for the switch. Donna Falletti, the office manager for Long Island-based South Shore Medical Care & Diagnostics, which serves roughly 50 to 60 patients a day, was worried about the coding upgrade. "Twenty-eight years, I've been through it all," she said at the time "This I can tell you is the worst and I'm not getting it. It doesn't seem like it's benefiting the patient. It's not benefiting the doctor. It's just more for the government to have specifics." But more than a year later ...the transition has gone "fairly smoothly," Falletti said, when reached by phone Monday. Read more here:

WHERE ARE THEY NOW - Robert Kelly, the former top executive at New York-Presbyterian Hospital who left his $3 million a year job in New York because of an extramarital affair, applied to the Broward Health board of commissioners to be the new chief executive officer of the health care system that serves the northern part of Broward County, Florida.

RESPONSE - On Tuesday, I wrote about small businesses that were moved from an experience rated pool to a community rated pool. You can read that here: . Shortly after the article appeared, Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard Gottfried emailed to say this is another reason why New York State should pass his health care law, which would replace private insurers with government-sponsored health insurance. "One risk pool; everyone in; financing based on ability to pay, not a regressive 'tax' based on age or health or size of employer," he wrote. "Community rating is not wrong. Before New York State enacted it back in the 90s, many small businesses were finding health coverage costs unaffordable and skyrocketing. We tend to forget about the problem that a good law ameliorated. The problem is not community rating, or where we draw the line between small and large businesses. The problem is the insurance-based system that is inherently and profoundly flawed."

-FOLLOWING UP - U.S. Sen. Edward Markey is urging federal agencies to limit the use of a prescription version of the powerful painkiller fentanyl, according to STAT News.

The drug, which is sold by Insys Therapeutics, is approved only for use in cancer patients suffering from sharp bouts of previously untreatable pain."
