Odessa College will apply the donation to capital expenses for additional equipment in their Health Sciences Building and to scholarships for students pursuing their education in health care careers. Noel earns award Odessa Regional Medical Center has donated $15,000 to Odessa College’s health career programs for additional equipment in the Health Sciences Building to provide real-life experiences in health professions and scholarships.Vice President for Instruction Valerie Jones said Odessa College talks a lot with the community about the importance of partnerships with employers, community partners and the college so entities like Odessa Regional can tell the college of their future needs in health care and the college can prepare curriculum for those practitioners of tomorrow.The funds will go to the Odessa College Foundation.“We need more folks to be able to go into the healthcare professions, to be highly trained, to be expert professionals and to be able to serve this community,” Jones said. “Scholarships help make that possible for folks so that financial restrictions are not a barrier to access for them. Once they get here, they have to have the most current technology; they have to have the relevant equipment; they have to be able to train in real-world experiences so that when they go into the real world and they’re helping you and me and our families in the hospitals and the facilities where we need them most, they’re prepared. …”Stacey Gerig Brown, president of Odessa Regional, said Tuesday the hospital appreciates OC’s support of education of medical professionals and hopes the donation will help those who might not otherwise have a chance for schooling in the various healthcare fields.Brown said the hospital hopes to employ a lot of OC graduates in the different areas of specialty, such as nursing, phlebotomists and emergency medical technicians.“Our biggest need is always in nursing. As you know, there’s a national shortage of nurses so we’re always very interested in helping them in terms of their internships and those things when they’re doing their clinicals. We hope to build relationships with them at that time so we can eventually hire them once they complete their training to help us fill vacancies,” Brown said.Odessa College President Gregory Williams thanked ORMC for its generosity.“… This is the lifeblood of what we do because we would hate for dollars to stand in the way of amazing people being able to do wonderful work. And for many in our community, that is the barrier,” Williams said. “There are people who would like to accomplish things, but their finances don’t allow it. They don’t think they can afford to go to school. They don’t think they can afford to take that step.”However, there are grants and scholarships available to students, he added.“We owe not only ORMC, but we owe this entire community our very best. And guess what, when we give our very best they give back to us,” Williams said.More Information Local NewsEducation ORMC donates $15,000 to Odessa College health careers program Pinterest Twitter Pinterest OC Health Careers.ORMC.

BLOG: Protecting Pennsylvania’s Consumers

first_imgRead more agency year in review blog posts.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf By: Teresa Miller, Insurance Commissioner SHARE Email Facebook Twitter BLOG: Protecting Pennsylvania’s Consumerscenter_img January 13, 2016 Efficiency,  Government That Works,  The Blog,  Year in Review Since taking office, Governor Wolf and I have set consumer protection as the Insurance Department’s top priority. A big part of helping consumers is letting them know that we are here as a resource for them, and under Governor Wolf’s direction, we have substantially increased our consumer outreach.There were many times throughout 2015 where Governor Wolf and I took an active stand in order to put consumers first and protect them from future harm.Keeping Rates LowI’m also very proud of the work done by my department in reviewing individual and small group health insurance rates this year to ensure that we balanced the needs of the companies involved without placing too much burden on consumers through drastic rate increases. My department was able to save Pennsylvania’s consumers nearly $81 million – an outcome that wasn’t the case in all other states. I’m glad we can tell that story here.CHIPShortly after taking office, we addressed an issue where families enrolled in the full-cost CHIP program were facing tax penalties, because these plans did not meet minimum essential coverage standards dictated by the Affordable Care Act. We worked quickly to bring these plans up to MEC standards and obtained waivers so these families would avoid the tax penalty. Under the direction of Governor Wolf, we brought the remaining CHIP plans up to MEC standards so that more than 150,000 Pennsylvania children enrolled in the program could enjoy improved benefits and coverage standards.Highmark/UPMCThe Insurance Department is also continuing to play a role in protecting consumers affected by the consent decrees signed by Highmark and UPMC in 2014. My department supported Governor Wolf’s decision to go to court in order to protect the access of more than 180,000 seniors in western Pennsylvania to the doctors and hospitals of their choice, by requiring UPMC to stay in Highmark’s Medicare Advantage program, consistent with the terms of the consent decrees.Saving Consumers MoneyAway from the health side, we’ve taken a stand against unfair pricing tactics like the “widow’s penalty” and price optimization – a practice that occurs when insurers consider factors unrelated to expected losses and expenses, such as a customer’s likelihood to shop around for a better price, when setting rates. I issued notices to insurers to remind them that these practices are unfairly discriminatory and my department will not authorize rates that impose costs where additional risk can’t be proven.We’re also continuing to pursue other consumer protection issues, including surprise balance billing, which occurs when patients receive a bill for a service received at an in-network facility with an in-network provider but encounter an out-of-network provider at some point during care.What’s Next?These accomplishments demonstrate the Wolf Administration’s strong commitment to putting consumers first through increasing access to health insurance, ensuring consumers are treated fairly by companies, and educating the public on issues so consumers have the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.As we move into 2016, we’re going to continue to focus on finding solutions to issues that affect consumers every day.Find Us OnlineOver the summer, we revamped the Insurance Department website to make it much more user-friendly, and we’re making good use of this new platform to reach and educate consumers. We regularly update it with consumer alerts focused on seasonal tips or issues we hear of from consumers, and we’re producing more educational content, such as our videos and shopper’s guide to using and purchasing health insurance, to help consumers make educated and empowered choices.We’ve also joined social media, so head over to Facebook.com/PAInsuranceDepartment or follow us on Twitter @PAInsuranceDept.We’re going to work to become a more visible force in communities around the commonwealth. I want Pennsylvania consumers to know that we’re here as a resource and to connect with consumers in their own environments, and I strongly encourage you to contact us if you have any issues or concerns via our Consumer Services Bureau at 1-877-881-6388 or through our contact form at insurance.pa.govlast_img read more
