I am surprised that some would even suggest that access and physician enrollment will not be substantially (and negatively) impacted with the drop in Medicaid physician payments for many states. The impact of increased Medicaid enrollees in expansion states certainly strains provider schedules, now tie-in the relapse of reduced reimbursement insufficient to cover costs of care….we will see if standard economic theory fits here.
Comment refers to Tennessee’s failure to expand Medicaid and the negative impact on state hospitals and access to care.

The following is my recipe for my morning coffee flavor promoter:

-2 Tablespoons organic pure Cacao powder
-1/2 Tsp. organic vanilla extract OR ½ Tsp. organic vanilla bean powder
-¼ Tsp pure stevia (optional for those who must have sweeter flavor)
Place all ingredients into micro-blender, blend for minimum of 2 minutes. Keep stored in refrigerator and add 1-2 Tbsp to each 8oz. coffee.
Awesome wearable fiber technology. Next step is garments we send our patients home with to optimize their recovery and monitor status.
