Patients with a diagnosis of dementia have approximately three times the rate of diagnosis of urinary incontinence, and more than four times the rate of fecal incontinence, compared with those without a diagnosis of dementia, according to a study in this week’s issue of PLOS Medicine by Robert Grant (Kingston University and St. George’s, University of London) and colleagues. Furthermore, patients with dementia and incontinence were more likely to receive incontinence medications and indwelling catheters than those with incontinence but without dementia, the authors state…

According to the report, couples who have a household income of less than around $54,400 (£35,000) a year are less likely to sleep together…

What causes schizophrenia? Gene discoveries offer clues

Scientists have discovered 13 new locations in our genetic code that could help explain the cause of schizophrenia. The researchers conducted an analysis over 59,000 people, publishing their findings in Nature Genetics. The study included 5,001 schizophrenia patients alongside 6,243 controls. This analysis was followed by a type of review that combines studies, a meta-analysis of studies into genome-wide associations. They also replicated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within 168 genomic regions of independent brain samples…

You take care of Mom, but who will take care of you?

The pool of family and friends to care for Baby Boomers as they age into their 80s will be less than half as deep as it is today, according to a new report from AARP. The report predicts the ratio of potential family caregivers to elders needing care will plummet from today’s seven caregivers for each person over age 80 to fewer than three caregivers per elderly person in 2050…

The Impact of Physicians' Retirement On Access To Health Care

Fox News: Retiring Doctors Mean Problems For Newly Insured Under Obamacare
Some 10,000 baby boomers will retire every day for the next 19 years, including many doctors. But at the same time, more people will be looking for health providers under ObamaCare — meaning there could be a potentially wide numbers gap between those seeking treatment and those available to provide it (Angle, 8/26).

Michigan Lawmakers Set To Vote On Medicaid Expansion

The Michigan Senate is weighing whether to expand Medicaid eligibility to allow 470,000 residents to qualify for the program in a closely-watched vote that has divided conservative Republicans and centrist Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. Lawmakers are slated to vote on three separate proposals Tuesday.

The Washington Post’s Gov Beat: Michigan Senate To Vote On Medicaid Expansion
The Michigan Senate is weighing whether to expand Medicaid eligibility to low-income families, a closely-watched vote that has divided conservative Republicans and centrist Gov. Rick Snyder (R) for months (Wilson, 8/27).

Detroit Free Press: Senate Could Vote For Medicaid Expansion Tuesday
For nearly three months, state Senators have been bombarded with billboards, e-mails and advertising from both sides of the Medicaid expansion issue. And it all comes down to a possible vote Tuesday on whether to approve a plan that would provide health care insurance coverage to an additional 470ꯠ low-income Michiganders (Gray, 8/26).

And from California, a report on how that state’s expanded Medi-Cal program is being rolled out —

California Health Report: How The ACA’s Medi-Cal Expansion Will Work
The federal health reform known as the Affordable Care Act has so many moving parts that it is almost impossible to predict with confidence how it all will work once the law inches closer to full implementation on Jan. 1. But one very big piece of the Act is almost certain to roll out as intended: the expansion of the Medi-Cal program to accommodate more than a million low-income Californians who until recently had almost no access to the doctors, hospitals and labs that many people take for granted (Weintraub, 8/26).

Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., said she will introduce the bill when Congress returns from its five-week break in September.

The Washington Post: Bill Would End Federal Funding For Lawmakers’ Health Coverage
A House Republican on Monday proposed a bill that would end federal funding for the health-care premiums of members of Congress and leave lawmakers to fend for themselves after they enter new insurance exchanges forming under Obamacare. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.) said she will introduce the legislation after Congress returns from a five-week break in September. “As long as Obamacare remains law, members of Congress should not receive exchange subsidies that are not provided to other Americans,” she said in a statement (Hicks, 8/27).

Veterans health care is also drawing attention on Capitol Hill –

The Denver Post: Congress Demands VA Inspector Investigate Aurora Hospital Delays
A Congressional oversight committee is seeking an inspector general’s probe into the construction mess and budget overruns at the Veterans Affairs hospital project in Aurora, according to a letter to be released this week. Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, chair of the veterans Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and the panel’s ranking Democrat, planned to release a letter Tuesday asking the VA’s inspector general to launch an investigation (Booth, 8/ǻ).

NBC: Health-Care Costs For Wounded Vets To Increase For Decades To Come
No government agency has calculated fully the lifetime cost of health care for post-9/11 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with life-lasting wounds. But it is certain to be high, with higher survival rates, longer tours of duty and multiple injuries, plus the anticipated cost to the VA of reducing the wait times for medical appointments and reaching veterans in rural areas (Wilde, 8/27).

The Hill: Sebelius Ties Health Care Law To Civil Rights Anniversary
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Monday tied President Obama’s signature healthcare law to the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Sebelius, in a post on the White House blog, said access to healthcare is key to other opportunities (Baker, 8/26).
