High Tech medical practice system may Replace Ailing Medicaid

The Personal Pediatrics House call software and system and portal may play a critical role in easing gaps in insurance coverage for those just above and just under the poverty line...

Health insurance premiums rose faster than adjustments were made to the federal poverty level between 1998 and 2004, according to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation. In that period, the federal poverty limit increased only about 20%, but premiums for family coverage rose 100% and single coverage increased by 86%. As a result, people who are just above the poverty limit are hit increasingly hard. Because eligibility of health care subsidies depends on personal or family income's relation to the federal policy level, the arrangement does not provide for consistent protection against rising health care costs, the group says.
