After many years at McKnight's, I'd like to think I'm reasonably well-versed on how long-term care services and reimbursement work, ranging from therapy caps to Medicare Part B to Medicaid funds.
Settlement talks for about 300 opioid lawsuits against Cardinal Health are ongoing, according to local reports. Cardinal Health said in a quarterly report this month there were 343 lawsuits against it in 36 jurisdictions. Around 40 more have been filed in federal courts, the Columbus Business Journal reported this week. Cardinal Health isn't alone: Amerisource reported it had a “significant number of lawsuits,” while McKesson Corp. said it had 192 cases pending as of Dec. 31.
Medicaid is projected to grow at a 5.8% rate through 2026, slower than previous years, according to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Office of Actuary data released Wednesday.

Total health spending this year is projected to grow by 5.3%, according to CMS and a report published in Health Affairs.
Made this horrible gasping noise at our writing retreat, but it was in excitement over seeing @HHoangWrites's Kiss Quotient written about in the @twobossydames newsletter WHICH I THEN GOT TO READ OUT LOUD TO HELEN.
@AdamSilvera We should have increased what we took to Goodwill by a third. No regrets about moving 1000+ books, although this year alone we donated 300 books, many of which had made the move. Also, inspect every part for damage if using moving company.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
