From the Desk of Trish McFarland As we enter a new year, it’s a matter of course to recall successes and challenges from the past year and create goals for the next. Looking back at 2016 at the Chamber of Commerce, we see fun events with incredible recognition of honorees and a constant asking to business owners, “What keeps you up at night?” More importantly, we are asking ourselves how we can fill those gaps and stay relevant to business. We reflect and understand the importance of continued growth in our local economy and being the Neighborhood Champion of Small Business Saturday, urging shoppers to visit our local shops for all holiday needs. I am proud that every year we spread “Shop Small” awareness for the Saturday after Thanksgiving, as it is a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for our community. We thank our members, small businesses and shoppers who took part in this year’s Small Business Saturday! We look at the changes in healthcare and the brunt impact on local businesses and our community. Our local healthcare system has many strengths: remarkable medical innovation, cutting edge technology, and world-leading medical institutions. Nevertheless, there are huge variations in quality, cost, and access to care within our system. I am sure we can all assume revision is on the horizon. At the Chamber, our goal is to provide resources to inform, educate and empower people about business issues and services available. This empowerment is the driving force behind our winter edition. I am pleased to present our Delaware County Regional News focused on cutting edge healthcare. We know the questions facing our members, organizations and communities are complex, and we hope you will find the content inside useful.

Open Season:

TIME TO SIGN UP

For Health Care Coverage By Natalia Olson-Urtecho, Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration

As Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), my goal is to make sure small businesses in Pennsylvania have the information they need about the Affordable Care Act to make informed decisions that are best for their businesses. The Affordable Care Act provides comprehensive health insurance reforms designed to ensure Americans have access to quality, affordable health care coverage. Why enroll? First, increased access to quality, affordable health care makes

it easier for potential entrepreneurs to go out on their own instead of staying at larger firms simply because of "job lock” – the lack of access to affordable insurance outside of their current employment. Now is the time for business owners to sign up for a plan. The important dates to know for those who want to sign up for coverage for this year: open enrollment for coverage began November 1, 2016 and ends January 31, 2017. (There is an exception to this deadline for a qualifying life event that provides you with a special

DELAWARE COUNTY REGIONAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE – OFFICIAL MAGAZINE

enrollment period such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, or loss of a job. You can also apply for Medicaid or CHIP at any time of the year.) With Health Insurance Marketplaces (also referred to as Exchanges) open, business owners have more options than ever to find health care coverage. Self-employed individuals and other consumers can also purchase private insurance coverage from a range of options. Depending on income and residency, may qualify for additional subsidies like Medicaid or tax credits. By shopping for the deal that’s right for you in the marketplaces you may be able to save significantly on your insurance costs. The Affordable Care Act helps level the playing field, and with consumer protections like insurance rate reviews and a ban on denying coverage for preexisting conditions in place, provides greater certainty that small business owners can access the coverage they need, when they need it. It is important to know that if you do not have health coverage, you may have to pay a fee (or “mandate”) when filing your annual income tax – for more information go to www.healthcare.gov/fees/fee-for-not-being-covered. To find an insurance plan that meets your needs today, check out the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) insurance finder tool www.healthcare.gov/find-premium-estimates. By answering just a few simple questions, you’ll be able to locate health insurance plans in your state and explore whether there are local facilities in your area that provide free or reduced-cost health care. To browse coverage options, assess potential subsidies, and purchase your plan online through the individual marketplace, simply go to www.healthcare.gov. As always, SBA is here to help small business start, grow and succeed. For more information about other provisions affecting self-employed business owners and other small business requirements under the Affordable Care Act, go to www.sba.gov/healthcare.


Another Affordable Care Act (ACA) Provision in 2017 Most of the provisions in the Affordable Care Act (the massive healthcare legislation also known as Obamacare) have been implemented, including insurance mandates for individuals and most employers. But another significant change did not take effect until January 1, 2017. This change could alternate the way the law works in many states. Under little-known Section 1332 of the law, beginning in 2017 the federal government can grant a “waiver for state innovation” to individual states allowing them to revise parts of the law. For instance, an individual state could shut down their insurance exchange or even eliminate the individual and employer insurance mandates. Another potential option is to create a single-payor system as Vermont unsuccessfully tried to do. Montana has also announced intentions to use a single-payor plan. Insurers in Pennsylvania requested an average rate increase of 32.5 percent for individual market-

place plans in 2017, as well as an average 7.1 percent increase for small group plans. The increases apply only to the 10 percent of Pennsylvanians who receive coverage through the individual or small group market. Three-quarters of those who purchased plans through the federal exchange last year qualified for subsidies to help with premiums, according to the department. The basic idea behind Section 1332 is to give some control back to the states much in the way that they can enact laws governing other federal-sponsored programs like Medicaid. The decision of whether to grant the waiver is left to the Secretary of Human and Health Services, who reports to Congress, after a period of public comment. If a state receives a waiver, it would be compensated for the aggregate amount of eligible federal subsidies and tax credits that can’t be paid due to the structure of the state plan. However, now that nation has elected Donald Trump to the White House, the president-elect has vowed to “repeal and replace” Obamacare as one of his first tasks in office. It remains to be seen how long this American Care Act provision will last. But let’s be clear: Section 1332 doesn’t provide carte blanche for the states to wipe out Obamacare before President-elect Trump even takes office. Instead, it gives the states an opportunity to develop plans in furtherance of expanding health insurance to their residents. Thus, the states must show that their plans will continue to cover as many people as Obamacare, within certain budgetary restraints. What’s more, some Obamacare provisions are carved in stone, such as the requirement to extend protection to insureds with pre-existing conditions. Of course, with a staunch opponent of Obamacare taking office and a Republican-led Congress at his side, the likelihood is that waivers will be approved, with reason, especially since completely repealing the law remains a top priority for the new administration. Until that actually occurs, if ever, individual states may be able to put their own imprints on the law.

HSAs Offer An Attractive – AND AFFORDABLE – Health Care Option If there’s one concern that unites nearly every small business owner, it’s the cost of health care. HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS have increased 87 percent in the past six years, according to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). And with no end to the escalation in sight, small business owners often have little choice but to pass the increases on to their employees or drop the benefit entirely – a move that may also cost them valuable staff members. A health plan option first introduced in 2004 offers some measure of hope. Health Savings Accounts, or HSAs, work in IRA-like fashion to cover out-of-pocket medical costs with taxsheltered money. An HSA is an investment account funded by each individual, with optional contributions from your business. The accounts must be linked to an insurance plan that has a high deductible of, say, $1,000 to $2,500 or more. Money from the HSA pays health expenses until the insurance kicks in. Unspent funds carry over, so the accounts have the potential to accumulate significant balances over years of untaxed contributions and

investment gains. And premiums on health plans with high deductibles are more affordable. Employer contributions to a tax-favored HSA are exempt from payroll taxes, and the employee is not taxed either. As medical costs soar, HSAs have become more popular among small businesses. Plan features include: 1) The annual contribution limit to an HSA matches the deductible on your health insurance – up to $2,850 for an individual, and $5,650 for family coverage as of 2006. Amounts are adjusted annually to inflation. 2) The employer, individual or both can make contributions and each individual has control over the assets in their account. 3) Plan providers will generally be insurance companies or banks. If your business sets up the plan you will arrange for employee HSAs. 4) To be eligible, an individual must be covered by a high-deductible health plan and must not be covered by other health insurance.

To learn more about how HSAs work, visit the National Association of Health Underwriters’ Web site, www.nahu.org. You’ll also find up-todate information on regulatory changes and assistance with finding insurance firms and agents.

Whether a patient participates in a screening or needs cancer treatment, the Mercy Cancer Center at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital provides patients with high-quality cancer care throughout the continuum. Traveling into the city is not necessary when patients have access to top-notch surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists offering comprehensive treatment options so close to home. Receiving a cancer diagnosis can raise a wide range of challenges and concerns. Newly diagnosed patients often feel bombarded by an overflow of information about treatment options and resources during this very emotional time. A patient must quickly cope with the worry of having such a serious illness, along with the stressors of everyday life, while making care decisions. “You don’t have to leave the community to get great cancer care,” said Eugene Choi, MD, hematologist and oncologist at Mercy Cancer Center. “We have advanced services here and a variety of cancer specialists, depending on your needs. It is important to remember that at Mercy Cancer Center, you aren’t a number, you are a neighbor who will receive individualized care.” When a new patient first arrives at the Mercy Cancer Center, they are greeted by a specially trained oncology nurse navigator to help walk the patient through diagnosis, treatment, education and the survivorship planning process. The nurse navigator will also work closely with the oncology specialists and the multidisciplinary team to coordinate the best care physically, financially, spiritually and emotionally. From setting up appointments to providing information on support services, nurse navigators can help every patient each step of the way. At the Mercy Cancer Center, there is a tumor board comprised of physicians and clinicians who are experts in oncology. This team meets to develop a plan of care that is consistent with the evidence-based guidelines for a patient’s specific cancer. The oncology physicians, along with the navigator, will meet with

the patient and family to review the plan as a group and answer any questions. “Our goal is to provide quality cancer care for all people in our community touched by cancer,” said Michele Zappile-Lucis, DPT, OCS, a physical therapist and administrative director of oncology and rehab for Mercy Health System. “We are pleased to offer customized services that give patients the tools, support and strength to tackle all aspects of their cancer diagnosis and care.” As of September 2016, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital now offers 3D tomosynthesis mammography, which is a three-dimensional

mammogram used to detect breast cancer by capturing multiple images in a single data set. Also in September 2016, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital earned a three-year full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), which is a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. This designation is the seal of approval for breast centers that acknowledges the commitment to providing the highest quality evaluation and management of patients with breast disease. For those diagnosed with breast cancer, patients have access to superior surgeons and treatment options including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and endocrine therapy. For other types of cancer such as lung, liver, abdomen, spine and prostate, the Mercy Cancer Center now offers a new state of the art linear accelerator capable of performing Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT), which customizes high energy X-rays to conform to a tumor’s shape and destroy cancer cells while sparing the surrounding normal tissue. SBRT is a non-surgical procedure that delivers precisely targeted radiation at much higher doses, in a single or fewer treatments, as compared to traditional radiation therapy. This treatment is an alternative to invasive surgery and is especially important for patients who are unable to undergo surgery and for those with tumors and abnormalities that are hard to reach. “With the new linear accelerator, we are now equipped with the latest in cancer-fighting capabilities to deliver a specialized type of radiation,” said Usha Babaria, MD, a radiation oncologist from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital that provides services at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. “In radiation therapy, the linear accelerator is used typically as a curative treatment, either alone or in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy. This new equipment gives patients several advanced treatment approaches.” Additionally, through the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network, patients have access to oncology clinical trials. We have an onsite clinical research nurse to assist in enrolling patients in clinical trials that offer the latest oncology treatments for various cancer types. The Mercy Cancer Care team understands that a patient’s emotional well-being is vital to physical recovery. Therefore, Mercy also offers special classes and programs to improve the overall quality of life for people currently in treatment and recovery. For example, men and women support groups meet once a month. Patients can also participate in the free “Look Good, Feel Better” program, which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Those patients can meet with a trained and registered cosmetologist to learn beauty techniques to help combat the appearance-related side effects of some cancer treatments. Additionally, the Mercy Cancer Center offers oncology rehab services designed to help patients thrive during and after cancer treatment. Oncology rehabilitation services include physical and occupational therapy designed to address cancer-related fatigue, swelling in the arms, energy conservation, loss of motion and more. From the onset of a cancer diagnosis, survivorship is main objective at the Mercy Cancer Center. Each year, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital recognizes its survivors at a Survivors’ Day Luncheon to celebrate current and former cancer patients and reunite them with their doctors, nurses and other caregivers. Participants unite in this event to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality.

MERCY CANCER CENTER, located on the ground floor of the Medical Office Building on Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital’s campus, provides patients with one-stop access to expert physicians and state-of-the-art cancer services in one convenient location. With a multi-disciplinary approach to patient-centered care, Mercy Cancer Center provides: ■

In the end, the overarching mission of Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital and the Mercy Cancer Center is to provide a compassionate and healing presence within the community it serves. The comprehensive services offered at Mercy Cancer Center are another example of how the team carries out its mission in Delaware County.

Election Update

By: Alex Rahn, Wanner Associates

PENNSYLVANIA SAW MIXED As of Election Day, it looks like the State Senate has a 34- seat (veto-proof) majority for the RESULTS IN THE STATEWIDE Republicans. In our region, Republican Senator Tom Killion (Delaware) won a rematch over ELECTIONS with Republicans Donald Trump challenger Marty Malloy in a repeat of a Special Election earlier this year to replace former and Senator Patrick Toomey both winning the Commonwealth. Trump’s success was a first time win for a Republican candidate for President in Pennsylvania since 1988, in a surprising result where Hillary Clinton was expected to take the state. Senator Toomey barely squeaked by Katie McGinty, winning by less than 2% of the vote, but his win also allowed Republicans to keep the majority in the U.S. Senate. However, Democrat candidates for Attorney General, Auditor General and Treasurer all won their statewide campaigns. County Commissioner Josh Shapiro won for Attorney General with 51% of the vote over State Senator John Rafferty. Eugene DePasquale retains his position as Auditor General with 50% of the vote to challenger John Brown’s 45%. Joe Torsella sailed passed for State Treasurer with 51% of the vote over Otto Voit who received 45%. Congressman Pat Meehan from Delaware County also easily won re-election.

Senator Dominic Pileggi. Senator Andrew Dinniman (R-Chester) easily beat back a spirited challenge from Jack London. In other Senate races across the state, incumbent Democrat Senators Rob Teplitz (Dauphin) and Sean Wiley (Erie) lost to their Republican challengers Steve DiSanto and Dan Laughlin respectively. Also, an open seat to replace Democrat John Wozniak was won by Republican Wayne Langerholc over Democrat Ed Cernic in Cambria County. Other new faces in the Senate include Mike Regan (RCumberland) replacing Pat Vance, Sharif Street (D-Phila) replacing Shirley Kitchen, and Scott Martin (R-Lancaster) replacing Lloyd Smucker who successfully ran for U.S. House of Representatives. Pending any re-counts, Republicans in the State House also saw their majority seemingly increase to 122 with Republicans winning two open seats that were vacated by incumbent Democrats not seeking re-election. Republicans also defeated Jarret Gibbons (D-Lawrence) who will be replaced by Republican Aaron Bernstine, and Tim Mahoney (D-Fayette) who lost to Republican Matthew Dowling. Rep David Parker was the lone House Republican lost re-election to Democrat Maureen Madden. Locally, there were several heated campaigns for State House with Alex Charlton (R) beating Elaine Shaefer (D) in an open race to replace Bill Adolph. Incumbent Jamie Santora (R) also won reelection against Barbarann Keffer (D) and Leanne Krueger-Braneky (D) seemingly won a close election against Patti Rodgers Morrisette which may lead to a recount. Brian Kirkland (D) won an open seat to replace his uncle Thaddeus Kirkland and Chris Quinn (R) successfully defended his State House seat which he won earlier in the year for a special election. State House members Nick Miccarelli, Greg Vitali, Margo Davidson and Steve Barrar also effortlessly won their re-elections.

DELICIOUS DELCO

LACINATO KALE SALAD Joan Petrillo, Store Manager at Martindale’s Natural Market

Lacinato is one of the healthiest vegetables to eat. The deep, dark color signals you that it is packed with a rich abundance of nutrients and chlorophyll, even more than common kale. Walnuts provide good omega fats, and cranberries protect cells with antioxidants. This salad can be made ahead of time to make your dinner preparations easier.

INGREDIENTS 1 large bunch of lacinato kale 1/2 c. walnuts 2/3 c. dried cranberries 2 oz. lemon juice 4 oz. olive oil 2/3 c. ground Parmesan cheese salt/pepper

PROCEDURE: 1. Preheat oven to 425F. Meanwhile, wash the kale then tear the spines of the kale out.. 2. Next, coat the walnuts in a minimal amount (dash) of olive oil then add salt and mix together until combined. Toast in oven for about 4 minutes or until the walnuts are brown. You made need to move the walnuts around while toasting to create even browning across each walnut. 3. Finally, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Once these are combined, mix the kale with the dressing in a large bowl and allow it to marinate for as long as possible, at least two hours. This tenderizes the tough leaves. Then combine with the walnuts and cranberries before serving.
