Generally, when a single insider buys stock, it is usually not a big deal. However, when several insiders are buying, like in the case of ImExHS Limited (ASX:IME), it sends a favourable message to the company's shareholders.

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Independent Non-Executive Director Damian Banks bought AU$299k worth of shares at a price of AU$0.48 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than AU$0.42 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. As a general rule, we feel more positive about a stock if insiders have bought shares at above current prices, because that suggests they viewed the stock as good value, even at a higher price.

While ImExHS insiders bought shares during the last year, they didn't sell. The chart below shows insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last year. If you want to know exactly who sold, for how much, and when, simply click on the graph below!

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. Insiders own 32% of ImExHS shares, worth about AU$5.7m. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.

After the team announced the suspension, Ime, who shares son Kez, 10, with Nia, issued an apology for his actions. "I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down," he said in a statement to ESPN Sept. 22. "I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team's decision."

The LIP/DSH/GME Operations Unit contracts with local Intergovernmental entities (e.g. Counties, Taxing Districts, and Hospital Taxing Districts) to fund the state share for the supplemental payment programs. The unit manages supplemental payment funding distributions and monitor state and federal compliance of the Low Income Pool (LIP) program, Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) program, Graduate Medical Education (GME) program, Medicaid School Faculty Physicians payments, Public Emergency Medical Transportation (PEMT) program, and the Florida Cancer Hospital (FCHP) program.

The DSH program distributes $326 million of combined funding from IGTs and federal dollars. DSH funding is used to compensate hospitals that have provided a disproportionate share of Medicaid and/or charity care services.

More information on the hospital prices paid by MA plans would provide additionalinsights into whether MA prices are more closely tied to Medicare FFS prices orcommercial prices. Moreover, information on whether the hospital prices paid by MAplans vary with such factors as hospital and insurer market power, the share ofbeneficiaries enrolled in the MA program, and MA benchmark rates would be useful forevaluating the performance of the MA program and analyzing proposals to modifyit.

We next used the DRG on the claim and the 2013 IPPS payment rules to compute theamount that the Medicare FFS program would have paid for each stay in our sample(including the beneficiary cost sharing amount). With that approach, the mix ofstays and hospitals is held constant in our comparison of private payment rateswith Medicare FFS rates. We multiplied the Medicare operating and capital baserates by the DRG weight and adjusted for the area wage index. We also calculatedhospital-specific payments per discharge for indirect medical education (IME)and disproportionate share hospital (DSH) for the comparison with commercialrates. However, we excluded IME payments from the FFS rates in our comparisonwith MA, because the Medicare program makes IME payments directly to hospitalsfor MA enrollees. Our estimates thus exclude IME payments from Medicare for bothMA enrollees and FFS enrollees.

Next, we examined whether the prices paid by MA and commercial plans vary across plantype. The MA beneficiaries in our sample were about evenly split between beingenrolled in a health maintenance organization (HMO) and preferred providerorganization (PPO) plan (about 42% each), and the remainder were enrolled inpoint-of-service (POS) (10%) and private FFS plans (5%). This compares with about65% of the total MA population enrolled in an HMO plan and 29% enrolled in a PPO.7 The commercial sample was predominantly enrolled in POS plans (74%) with asmaller share enrolled in PPO, HMO, and exclusive provider organization (EPO) plans(11%, 8%, and 7%, respectively).

We also found that the ratio of MA prices to Medicare FFS prices was not correlatedwith the share of beneficiaries enrolled in the MA program (see Online Appendix Figure 4). Information on that relationship isimportant for evaluating policies that would substantially increase the share ofbeneficiaries enrolled in MA plans.

On Monday, the 51-year-old actress shared a quote about mental health to her Instagram. "A tip for mental health," the post reads, "learn to distinguish who deserves an explanation, who deserves one answer, and who deserves absolutely nothing."

The post was met with support and encouragement from Long's close friends and fans alike, who mostly shared emojis in solidarity with her message. Tina Knowles-Lawson commented, "Yessssssss!!! Facts Nia,"

When news broke of the allegations against Udoka, the Best Man actress shared a cryptic video on Instagram. In the clip -- a repost from a healing and wellness page -- Long made reference to embracing positivity, spirituality and finding light after darkness.

Medicare's payments for DGME are based on three factors: a hospital's costs per resident in a base year, indexed for subsequent inflation; the hospital's number of residents, which is subject to a cap that was first enacted in the Balanced Budget Act of 1997; and the share of total inpatient days at the hospital that is accounted for by Medicare beneficiaries. Payments for IME are made under Medicare's hospital inpatient prospective payment system as a percentage add-on to the base payment and reflect a hospital's teaching intensity (such as its ratio of full-time equivalent residents to the number of beds). In the Medicaid program, GME payments are considered to be a part of supplemental payments and states are allowed, but not required, to make Medicaid payments for GME. Each state determines its own level of Medicaid payments for GME and how those payments will be made. For example, some states base their GME payments on Medicare's methodology or on a modified form of that methodology, whereas other states provide lump-sum payments for GME. Those payments are subject to the same federal matching rates as other Medicaid spending and are subject to upper payment limits for Medicaid spending.

Beginning in October 2019, this option would consolidate all mandatory federal spending for GME into a grant program for teaching hospitals. Payments would be apportioned among hospitals according to the number of residents at a hospital (up to its existing cap) and the share of the hospital's inpatient days accounted for by Medicare and Medicaid patients. Total funds available for distribution in 2020 would be fixed at an amount equaling the sum of Medicare's 2018 payments for DGME and IME and the federal share of Medicaid's 2018 payments for GME. Total funding for the grant program would then grow at the rate of inflation. CBO examined two alternative measures of inflation. Under the first alternative, funding for the grant program would grow with the CPI-U; and under the second alternative, funding for the grant program would grow with the CPI-U minus 1 percentage point per year.

The option would not change the existing caps on the number of subsidized slots for residents. Altering those caps would not change the budgetary effects because total federal payments for GME under this option would not depend on the number of residents. Removing those caps might allow the existing slots to be allocated more efficiently among hospitals, but it also would create an incentive for hospitals to expand their residency programs in an attempt to receive a larger share of the total. The net effects on hospitals' residency programs would be difficult to predict.

Another argument against the option is that some teaching hospitals might use part of their GME payments to fund care for uninsured people. The option could therefore disproportionately affect teaching hospitals that treat a larger number of uninsured patients. Furthermore, states could lose some discretion to direct Medicaid GME payments to hospitals because the federal government would be administering the grant program. Under those circumstances, states would no longer receive federal matching for those funds and might choose to reduce their GME payments to hospitals. However, that reduction would be mitigated if states instead shifted their GME payments to other types of supplemental payments (which are subject to federal matching). Finally, if hospitals' costs grew faster than GME payments, hospitals and residents might bear an increasing share of the costs of operating a residency program over time. 59ce067264
