keepingcurrent Transparency – A New Hope Employer Sponsored Health Plans By Louis Bernardi President and Founder Group Planners Inc. d/b/a BritePath 125 Froehlich Farm Blvd Woodbury, NY 11797 516.590.0865 Direct 516.977.3018 Fax lcbernardi@groupplannersinc.com www.britepathins.com

Balancing the quality and cost of group health insurance challenges most employers. A major contributor is limited access to the cost and quality of medical services and prescription drugs. NY domiciled plans fall into three categories; Community Rated plans with under 100 full-time equivalent employees, Manually Rated groups with over 100 but too few members for insurers to consider their claims credible and Experience Rated employers that are rated based on the member claims experience. Each face different challenges with regard to transparency, until now. Most employers are not aware of the advancements that make detailed claims data available which expose significantly inflated prices

paid by most insurers. One area in particular, that is alarming, are the prices paid for prescriptions. A new breed of Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBM’s) helps employers with the ability to selfinsure reduce Rx spend by 25% percent or more. In fact, several recent analyses show a potential savings of 30-50%. How is this possible? Limited transparency allow carrier embedded PBM’s to artificially inflate the cost of generic medications by up to 4000%. The analysis also uncovers significant rebates that flow back to the carrier or PBM, instead of the plan. Rebates can account for as much as 25% of the total prescription spend. Currently, only employers that self-insure are able to secure their own PBM. This does not mean employers that choose to be fully insured have no ability to control cost. That couldn’t be further that the truth. A multitude of solution partners exist to help members a/k/a patients better navigate the complex health care ecosystem. It is no surprise that health care conglomerates which control every aspect of care purposely steer patients towards the facilities that maximize profits. A majority of doctors are now employees of the health care system; therefore, contractually obligated to refer within the system. Often

those services are performance at settings at significantly inflated prices. Without the ability to access cost or quality and the lack of incentives to shop for high-value care due to plan design, members simply go where steered. Example – after insurer artificial discounts, an MRI at an outpatient setting can cost $3,000 or more. Members pay their copay, deductible and/or coinsurance. The balance is paid by the carrier and charged against the plans claims cost. What most do not see, is that the very same MRI can be performed at a free-standing facility for as little as $800. Repeat this low value care over and over again within a plan and it’s not hard to see why premiums skyrocket and transparency is so crucial. There is not one HR Director on LI that hasn’t heard the question from their members – “When is it going to end? When will we stop getting less and paying more”? Analytics and Insights can provide actionable data to employers allowing them to raise the bar on plan performance, identify and mitigate artificial costs, reassess partnerships and most importantly forever change the trajectory of cost and quality of their health care plan.

The nice thing about teamwork is that you always have others on your side. Margaret Carty October 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 5

How the Pandemic is Changing Long-term Care Insurance Best Ideas Group, Inc. Michael Giller - Co-Founder Charles Horn - Co-Founder 60 North Country Road Suite 104 Port Jefferson, NY 11777 Phone: 631-979-4600 Info@BestIdeasGroupInc.com BestIdeasGroupInc.com

The COVID-19 pandemic has likely had a significant impact on long-term care insurance (LTCI), although most of the effects won’t be known until after it ends. The pandemic has appeared to increase both interest in and purchases of LTCI. It’s still too early for complete data to be available, but anecdotal reports from insurers and agents indicate that there has been increased inquiries about and purchases of different types of LTCI over the last year. The widespread effects of the pandemic have made more people aware of the potential they might need long-term care at some point. The pandemic also made more people realize that the need for longterm care can arise suddenly and much earlier than they realized. The increased interest in LTCI is also consistent with reports that people became much more concerned about estate planning during the pandemic. The last year has also taught insurers and agents to stress that LTCI is not “nursing home insurance.” A

common misconception about long-term care and LTCI is the assumption that the care is primarily delivered in a nursing home or at an assisted living residence. In fact, the majority of LTCI claims paid by insurers now are for home care. After reports that one-third of COVID-19 deaths were of nursing home residents and that long-term care facility residents were subject to forced isolation during the pandemic, many people emphasized that they want to receive any care they need in their homes for as long as possible. They want to create a financial structure that will help pay for long-term care at home. Though LTCI has paid for home care for many years, many potential purchasers didn’t realize that until recently. Most LTCI policies pay for long-term care delivered in almost any location. The standard provision triggers benefits when the insured is diagnosed as having a cognitive impairment or needing any assistance with at least two of the six activities of daily living. It doesn’t matter where the care is received. The ability to pay for care received at home makes LTCI attractive to a lot of people. How Hybrid Life Insurance Pays For Long-Term Care A negative effect of the pandemic on LTCI is that it is more difficult to qualify for a policy. Insurers are reportedly declining more applications for several reasons. In-person medical exams are now required for more applicants. Previously, in-person medical exams for

LTCI applicants weren’t common. The underwriting process typically involved a review of a weren’t common. The underwriting process typically involved a review of a questionnaire and some medical records. A telephone interview also was common. Now, it’s more likely that an in-person medical exam will be required when the paperwork or telephone interview raise any questions. More insurers are also lowering the age limit at which they’ll issue policies while lengthening the list of preexisting conditions that will disqualify an applicant from coverage. Those interested in LTCI seem to continue to move away from traditional LTCI and toward the newer hybrid policies. A hybrid policy is an annuity or life insurance contract with LTC benefits included. Additionally, hybrid policies guarantee no increase in premiums. Many are paid for with one lump sum premium deposit. Hybrid policies also make it easier for the insured to recover most if not all of the premium deposited with the insurer if the insured needs the money before needing long-term care. One of the more attractive features of hybrid policies is they aren’t ‘use-it-orlose-it’ like traditional LTCI. These factors are why sales of hybrid LTCI have increased substantially in recent years while sales of traditional LTCI have not seen as high of a climb.

keepingcurrent The Numbers Of Food Insecure Long Islanders Begin To Decline After 18 Months Of Long Island Cares Responding To The COVID-19 Pandemic overall decrease. While the number of food insecure Long Islanders is on the decline, we’re also seeing a decline in our food distribution data, which when compared to 2020 is down by 5.0% or just 346,400 pounds of food being delivered to our network. This data also supports our findings. Lastly, we are seeing an 11.2% decrease in our procurement of food. The regional foodbank has brought in 755,038 pounds of product between 2020 and 2021.

October 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 8

By Paule T. Pachter, A.C.S.W., L.M.S.W. Chief Executive Officer Long Island Cares, Inc. The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank 10 Davids Drive – Harry Chapin Way Hauppauge, New York 11788 Office: 631.582.3663 x 101 www.licares.org

After 18-months of responding to the increase in need for emergency food assistance brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, loss of jobs and underemployment, Long Island Cares-The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank and its 329 member agencies are seeing a reduction in the number of Long Islanders struggling with food insecurity. Between March of 2020 and 2021, Long Island Cares provided food assistance to an additional 287,481 people struggling to put food on their tables and feed their families. These numbers were in addition to the 259,000 people already known to the Long Island Cares hunger network and represent a 54.8% increase in need throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties. During the first year of COVID-19, The Harry Chapin Food Bank delivered 18,957,519 pounds of food to individuals and our member agencies. Over the past six-months the regional food bank and many of our member agencies have seen a decrease in the number of people visiting our community food pantries, as well as a decrease in the amount of people visiting Long Island Cares’ satellite locations. This reduction in need can be accounted for as people return to work, find new jobs, gain access to increased government assistance to help pay their rent, and receive COVID vaccinations.

The most recent Feeding America “Map the Meal Gap” report released in August identified a total of 204,030 Long Islanders as meeting the criteria for food insecurity and receiving assistance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as compared to 250,830 in 2020. On their own, these figures describe an 18.7% reduction in food insecurity in the Long Island region. However, based upon our historical data we also know that 40% of all visitors to our local pantries do not receive SNAP assistance but must be factored into our data. As a result, we need to add 81,612 people to the 2021 Map the Meal Gap figures to arrive at a final food insecurity number of 285,642, which represents a 26% increase over 2019 but, a decrease of 18.7% or 65,520 people in comparison to 2020 figures. To validate our findings further, Long Island Cares analyzed the number of visits to our satellite locations in Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Hampton Bays and Bethpage to see if we could identify a correlation between the data for 2020-2021. Through our analysis, we noted a decrease in visits by 7,439 people or an 18.1%

There are several factors that have contributed to the decline. Our 329 community-based agencies have done an outstanding job increasing their fundraising income and have sponsored several incredibly successful virtual fundraising events. Many of them expanded their profiles by collaborating with concerned community stakeholders while others procured additional food through relationships with local markets, groceries and restaurants. Long Island Cares supplemented these accomplishments by providing nearly $500,000 in grants to our member agencies to support their operations during the first twelve months of the pandemic. Although 285,642 people struggling to put food on their tables to feed their families and their pets is a large number, it’s far better than the 480,000 who turned to us at the height of the pandemic for emergency food assistance. It also means that the emergency food network is more manageable, providing us with an opportunity to better collaborate on regional planning, advocacy and shared staff development opportunities. We must also recognize the critical support provided to food banks by the federal government, New York State government, Nassau and Suffolk County, local municipalities, and from our corporate and individual donors.

NYS Appoints Cannabis Regulators, Moving Closer to Licensing Regulations By Arthur Yermash, Esq. Partner Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP (631) 738-9100 ayermash@cmmllp.com Following the legalization of recreational marijuana and Governor Hochul being sworn in, the ball is finally rolling on establishing an Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) in New York State.

October 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 10

The OCM is the regulatory agency that will oversee New York’s legal cannabis industry. On September 1, the New York State Senate convened a special session to confirm Governor Hochul’s nominations: Chris Alexander as Executive Director of the OCM and Tremaine Wright as the Chair of the Cannabis Control Board (CCB). Alexander is a former policymaker for the Drug Policy Alliance and was involved in the creation of the Marijuana Regulation & Taxation Act. Wright is a former Assemblywoman and current Director of the Office of Financial Inclusion and Empowerment in the NYS Department

of Financial Services. OCM Executive Director Alexander’s role will be to oversee applications for licensing and permits for manufacturing, cultivating, processing, settling, storing and distributing cannabis. CCB Chair Wright will be responsible for the number of registrations, licenses and permits to be issued. The approval of Governor Hochul’s picks means that New York State is moving closer to establishing regulations on cannabis licensing. The state legalized recreational marijuana this past spring after the issue took a backseat to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Hochul ordered the special session by saying she wanted “to jumpstart the longoverdue decisions pertaining to establishing cannabis in the state of New York.” Following the NYS Senate’s special session to appoint New York’s cannabis regulators, on September 22, Governor Hochul announced her Cannabis Control Board member appointments: Ruben R. McDaniel, III and Jessica Garcia. As board members, McDaniel and Garcia will help create and implement the

regulatory framework for New York’s cannabis industry. McDaniel is the President and CEO of the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York which provides construction, financing, and allied services. Garcia is Assistant to the President of the Retail, Wholesale Department Store Union, a national labor union representing workers along the food supply chain, as well as workers in non-food retail and healthcare. The final two members of the five-person Cannabis Control Board include Adam W. Perry, Speaker Carl Heastie’s appointment, and Jen Metzger, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins’s appointment. Perry is an employment attorney, while Metzger is a former New York State Senator from the 42nd District. Now that New York’s Cannabis Control Board is officially complete, and the Office of Cannabis Management has a director, that means that the regulatory process of legal marijuana can start to move forward with steps towards licensing, cultivation, production, distribution, sale, and taxation.

The Women’s Diversity Network The Women’s Diversity Network is a Long Island-based nonprofit composed of women and gender-expansive people who come from many racial, ethnic, age and socioeconomic groups. The group was formed by founder Shanequa Levin to create unity. Actions include dismantling systemic racism by educating communities about issues and policies, advocating to break down barriers that divide people, and celebrating diverse backgrounds.

WDN researches issues that concern women and gender expansive people and advocates for public policies that support their well-being. WDN has three primary areas of focus: health equity, gender inclusion and systemic racism. Two of WDN’s most powerful elements are its quarterly Courageous Conversations and Diversity Summits. With the Courageous Conversations participants talk frankly about topics such as racism, anti-Semitism, sexual and gender orientation, religion and more. Through these conversations, members and the general community learn to value, respect, and celebrate their differences, as well as to acknowledge our similar goals and values. The Annual Summit provides people with the opportunity to learn from seasoned experts, experience cultural food and entertainment, and to network with people from all walks of life. WDN’s efforts have resulted not only in friendships and greater understanding among diverse people, but policy changes. The organization counts among its recent victories: county based maternal mortality task force, advocating for bail reform, and police reform. WDN practices transformative justice based on group leadership where marginalized lives are centered. Recently, WDN began expanding to a national presence, since the issues the group confronts occur around the country and not only on Long Island.
