When we took the editorship propecia beard growth of Evidence-Based Mental Health (EBMH) at the end of 2013, we set two main propecia price canada objectives. To promote and embed an evidence-based medicine (EBM) approach into daily mental health clinical practice, and to get an propecia price canada impact factor (IF) for EBMH. Both aims have been big challenges and we have learnt a lot.EBM has been around for about 30 years now, shaping propecia price canada and changing the way we practice medicine. When Guyatt and colleagues published their seminal paper in 1992,1 EBM was described as the combination of three intersecting domains. The best available evidence, the clinical state and circumstances, and patient’s preferences and values propecia price canada.

EBM and EBMH have since continuously evolved to deepen our understanding of these three domains.The best available evidenceWe keep complaining about the propecia price canada poor quality of studies in mental health. To properly assess the effects of interventions and devices before and after regulatory approval, we all know that randomised controlled trials are the best study design.2 3 However, real-world data are crucial to shed light on key clinical questions,4 especially when adverse events5 or prognostic factors6 are investigated. It necessarily …IntroductionQuality-adjusted life years (QALYs) have been increasingly used in general medicine and in psychiatry to evaluate the impact of a disease on both the quantity and quality of life.1 propecia price canada One QALY is equal to 1 year in perfect health, can range down to zero (death) or may take negative values (worse than death). QALYs can be used to compare the burdens of various diseases, to appreciate the impact of their interventions, to help set priorities in resource allocations across different diseases and interventions and to inform personal decisions.The representative method to evaluate QALYs is the generic, preference-based measure of health including the Euro-Qol five dimensions (EQ-5D)2 3 and the SF-6D based on Short Form Survey-36 (SF-36).4 5 Of these, the EQ-5D propecia price canada is the most frequently used and is the preferred instrument by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence in the UK. While the responsiveness of such generic measures to various mental conditions, especially severe mental illnesses, has been questioned,6 its validity and responsiveness to common mental disorders propecia price canada including depression and anxiety have been generally established.7 8However, the traditional focus of measurements in mental health has centred mainly on symptoms.

Many trials have, therefore, not administered the generic health-related quality of life measures. This has hindered comparison of impacts of mental disorders vis-à-vis other medical conditions on the one hand and also evaluation of values of their interventions on the other.9 10We have been collecting individual participant-level data from randomised controlled trials of internet cognitive-behavioural therapies (iCBT) for depression,11 several of which administered both symptomatologic scales and generic health status propecia price canada scales simultaneously. This study, propecia price canada therefore, attempts to link the depression-specific measure onto the generic measure of health in order to enable estimation of QALYs for depressive states and their changes. Such cross-walking should facilitate assessment of burden of depression at its various severity and of the impacts of its various treatments.MethodsDatabaseWe have been accumulating a data set of individual participant data of randomised controlled trials of iCBT among adults with depressive symptoms, as established by specified cut-offs on self-report scales or by diagnostic interviews.11 For this study, we have selected studies that have administered the EQ-5D and depression severity scales at baseline and at end of treatment. We excluded patients if they had missing data in either propecia price canada of the two scales at baseline or at endpoint.

We excluded studies that focused on patients with general medical disorders (eg, diabetes, glioma) and depressive symptoms.MeasuresEQ-5D-3LThe EQ-5D-3L comprises five dimensions of mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression, each rated on three levels corresponding with 1=no problems, 2=some/moderate propecia price canada problems or 3=extreme problems/unable to do. This produces 3ˆ5=243 different health states, ranging from no problem at all in any dimension (11111) to severe problems on propecia price canada all dimensions (33333). Each of these 243 states is provided with a preference-based score, as determined through the time trade-off (TTO) technique in a sample of the general population. In TTO, respondents are asked to give the relative length of time in full health that they would be willing to sacrifice for the poor health states as propecia price canada represented by each of the 243 combinations above. The EQ-5D scores range between 1=full health and 0=death to minus values=worse than death bounded by −1 propecia price canada.

The scoring algorithm for the UK is based on TTO responses of a random sample (n=2997) of noninstitutionalised adults. Over the years, value propecia price canada sets for EQ-5D-3L have been produced for many countries/regions.2 3 7Depression severity scalesWe included any validated depression severity measures. The scale scores were converted into the most frequently used scale, namely, the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9),12 using the established conversion algorithms13 14 for the Beck Depression Inventory, second edition (BDI-II)15 or the Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D).16The PHQ-9 consists of the nine diagnostic criteria propecia price canada items of major depression from the DSM-IV, each rated on a scale between 0 and 3, making the total score range 0–27. The instrument has demonstrated excellent reliability, validity and responsiveness. The cut-offs have been proposed as 0–4, 5–9, 10–14, 15–19 and 20- for no, mild, propecia price canada moderate, moderately severe and severe depression, respectively.12Statistical analysesWe first calculated Spearman correlation coefficients between PHQ-9 and EQ-5D total scores at baseline, at end of treatment and their changes, to establish if the linking is justified.

Correlations were considered weak if scores were <0.3, moderate if scores were ≥0.3 and<0.7 and strong if scores were ≥0.7.17 Correlations ≥0.3 have been recommended to establish linking.18 We then applied the equipercentile linking procedure,19 which identified scores on PHQ-9 and EQ-5D or their changes with the same percentile ranks and allows for a nominal translation from PHQ-9 to EQ-5D propecia price canada by using their percentile values. This approach has been used successfully for scales in depression, schizophrenia or Alzheimer’s disease.14 20–22 We analysed all trials collectively rather than by trial to maximise the sample size, ensure variability in the included populations and attain robust estimates.We conducted a sensitivity analysis by excluding studies that require the conversion of various depression severity scores into PHQ-9.All the analyses were conducted in R V.4.0.2, with the package equate V.2.0.7.23Ethics propecia price canada statementThe authors assert that all procedures contributing to this work comply with the ethical standards of the relevant national and institutional committees on human experimentation and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2008. Ethical approval was not required for this study as it used only deidentified patient data.FindingsIncluded studiesWe identified seven RCTs of iCBT (total n=2457), which administered validated depression scales and EQ-5D both at baseline and at endpoint (online supplemental eTable 1). Three studies included only patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), one only patients with subthreshold depression and the remaining propecia price canada three included both. All the studies administered propecia price canada EQ-5D-3L.

PHQ-9 scores were converted from the BDI-II in three studies24–26 and from the CES-D in one study.27 The mean age of the participants was 41.8 (SD=12.3) years, 66.0% (1622/2457) were women and they scored 14.0 (5.4) on PHQ-9 and 0.74 (0.20) on EQ-5D at baseline and 9.1 (6.0) and 0.79 (0.21), respectively, at endpoint. When using the standard cut-offs of the PHQ-9,12 2.4% (60/2449) suffered from no depression (PHQ-9 scores <5), 20.2% (492/2449) from subthreshold depression (5≤PHQ-9 scores <10), 33.5% (820/2449) from mild depression (10≤PHQ-9 scores <15), 26.5% (649/2449) from propecia price canada moderate depression (15≤PHQ-9 scores <20) and 17.3% (424/2449) from severe depression (20≤PHQ-9 scores) at baseline.Supplemental materialEquipercentile linkingSpearman’s correlation coefficient between the PHQ-9 and the EQ-5D scores was r=−0.29 at baseline, increased to r=−0.50 after intervention and was r=−0.38 for change scores.Figure 1 shows the equipercentile linking between PHQ-9 and EQ-5D total scores at baseline and at endpoint. Figure 2 propecia price canada shows the same between their change scores.

PHQ-9, PatientHealth Questionnaire-9.View this table:Table 1 Conversion table from PHQ-9 to EQ-5D total and change scoresSensitivity analysisWhen we limited the samples to the three studies28–30 that administered PHQ-9 (total n=1375), the linking results were replicated (online supplemental eFigure 1).DiscussionThis is the first study to link a depression severity measure with the EQ-5D-3L both for total and change scores. To summarise, subthreshold depression corresponded propecia price canada with EQ-5D-3L index values of 0.9–0.8, mild major depression with 0.8–0.7, moderate depression with 0.7–0.5 and severe depression with 0.6–0.0. A five-point improvement in PHQ-9 corresponded approximately with an propecia price canada increase in EQ-5D-3L index values by 0.03, and a ten-point improvement can lead to an increase by approximately 0.25.A systematic review of utility values for depression31 found that the pooled mean (SD) utilities based on studies using the standard gamble as a direct valuation method were 0.69 (0.14) for mild, 0.52 (0.28) for moderate and 0.27 (0.26) for severe major depression. The estimates based on studies using EQ-5D as an indirect valuation method were 0.56 (0.16) for mild, 0.52 (0.28) for moderate and 0.25 (0.15) for severe depression.

One recent study regressed PHQ-9 on SF-6D scores propecia price canada among 394 patients in theimproving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) cohort7 32 and estimated none/mild depression on PHQ-9 to be worth 0.73 SF-6D scores, moderate depression 0.65 and severe depression 0.56. Our results are largely in line with these aforementioned studies.There was a consistent difference of about 0.07 EQ-5D scores for the same PHQ-9 propecia price canada score if it represented the baseline or endpoint measurements (figure 1). This is understandable because a patient would rate their health status less satisfactory if they stayed equally symptomatic as before after the treatment and also because it means that they continued to suffer from depression for longer. It is, therefore, reasonable to use the conversion table at baseline for relatively new cases of depression and that at end of treatment for more chronic cases (table 1).An effect size to be typically expected after 2 months of antidepressant pharmacotherapy33 or psychotherapy27 34 over the pill placebo condition is propecia price canada 0.3. Given that the average SD of PHQ-9 in the studies was about 6, an effect size of 0.3 corresponds to propecia price canada a difference by two points on PHQ-9.

The differences in EQ-5D scores corresponding with the end-of-treatment PHQ-9 scores of x propecia price canada versus x+2, where x is between 5 and 15 (table 1), ranges between 0.08 and 0.13, producing an approximate average of 0.1 EQ-5D scores. If we assume that the same difference would continue for the ensuing 10 months, the gain in QALY per year would be equal to 0.09 QALY. If we assume that the difference would eventually wear out over the course of the year due to naturalistic improvements to be expected in the control group, the gain in QALY per propecia price canada year would be equal to 0.05 QALY. (See figure 3 for a schematic drawing to propecia price canada help understand the calculation of QALYs based on changing EQ-5D scores. In reality, the changes will be more smoothly curvilinear but the calculation will be similar.) Since one QALY is typically valuated at US$50 000 or 3000 Stirling pounds,35 such therapies would be cost-effective if they cost US$2500 to US$4500 (150 to 270 pounds) or less.

If a 1 day fill of generic selective serotonergic reuptake inhibitor antidepressants costs 1–3 dollars and a 1-year prescription costs US$400–1200 dollars, or if 8–16 sessions of psychotherapy cost US$1600–3200 dollars, both therapies would be propecia price canada deemed largely cost-effective. An individual’s decision, by contrast, will and should be more variable and no one can categorically reject nor require such treatments propecia price canada for all patients.A schematic graph showing gains in QALY due to typical pharmacotherapies or psychotherapies. A patient may start with PHQ-9 of 20, corresponding with EQ-5D index value propecia price canada of 0.5. Then they may improve after 2 months of antidepressant therapy to EQ-5D score of 0.9 (solid line), while they may improve to EQ-5D score of 0.8 even if on placebo (dashed line). If we assume that the same difference would continue for the ensuing 10 months while showing slow gradual propecia price canada improvement in both cases, the gain in QALY per year would be equal to 0.09 QALY.

If we assume that the difference would eventually wear out over the course of the year due to naturalistic improvements propecia price canada to be expected in the control group, the gain in QALY per year would be equal to 0.05 QALY.

QALY, quality-adjustedlife years.Several caveats should be considered when propecia price canada interpreting the results.

First, our sample was limited to participants of trials of iCBT. It may be argued that the results, therefore, would propecia price canada not apply to patients with depression undergoing other therapies or in other settings. Second, the correlations between PHQ-9 and EQ-5D were strong enough for total scores at endpoint and for change scores to justify linking but were somewhat weaker at baseline, probably due to limited variability in PHQ-9 scores at baseline because some studies required minimum depression propecia price canada scores. However, the overall correspondence between PHQ-9 scores and EQ-5D had the same shape between baseline and endpoint, which will increase credibility of the linking at baseline as well. Third, we were able to compare PHQ-9 to propecia price canada EQ-5D-3L only.

The EQ-5D-5L, which measures health in five levels instead of three, has been developed to be propecia price canada more sensitive to change and to milder conditions.36 When data become available, we will need to link PHQ-9 and EQ-5D-5L to examine if we can obtain similar conversion values.Our study also has several important strengths. First, our sample propecia price canada included patients with subthreshold depression and major depression and from the community or workplace and the primary care. Furthermore, they encompassed mild through severe major depression in approximately equal proportions. Second, all the patients in our sample received iCBT or control interventions including propecia price canada care as usual. Potential side propecia price canada effects of different antidepressants, repetitive brain stimulation, electroconvulsive therapy and other more aggressive therapies must of course be taken into consideration when evaluating their impacts, but our estimates, arguably independent of major side effects, can better inform such considerations.

Finaly, unlike any prior studies, we were able to link specific PHQ-9 scores and their changes scores to EQ-5D-3L index values.Conclusion and clinical implicationsIn conclusion, we constructed a conversion table linking the EQ-5D, the representative generic preference-based measure of health status, and the PHQ-9, one of the most popular depression severity rating scale, for both its total scores and change scores. The table will enable fine-grained assessment of burden of depression at its various levels propecia price canada of severity and of impacts of its various treatments which may bring various degrees of improvement at the expense of some potential side effects.Data availability statementData are available upon reasonable request.

Key FindingsThe October KFF Health Tracking Poll finds one in five adults too late for propecia in the U.S. Report receiving ongoing support for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, or remembering medications, and a similar share say they are providing those type of services for a close friend or family member. About one in five adults (18%) also say they or a family member need either new or too late for propecia additional support from paid nurses or aides beyond what they are currently getting.

The most common reason why people haven’t gotten the support they need is cost. More than three-fourths of those who say they need more help (14% of all adults) say “not being able to afford the cost of the care” is a reason why they or their family member has not received the additional support from paid nurses or aides.Many unpaid caregivers say providing support to friends or family members has caused them to worry or stress (77%), experience worsening of their own mental health (50%), financial strain due too late for propecia to inability to work (42%), or worsening of their own physical health (38%). Unpaid caregivers are more likely to be racial and ethnic minorities, those with lower education, and report lower levels of household income.Significant shares of older adults in the U.S.

Report difficulty paying for various aspects of health care, especially services not generally covered by too late for propecia Medicare. Four in ten older adults (41%) report difficulty paying for dental care while three in ten report difficulty affording hearing or vision care (30%). Dental, vision, and hearing coverage are three benefits not generally covered by Medicare but are part of Democratic lawmakers’ proposals as part of the reconciliation too late for propecia spending package.Many older adults who are eligible for Medicare also report putting off or foregoing medical care due to costs.

While Medicare helps older adults pay for routine doctor visits and hospital stays, substantial shares of lower income older adults report putting off or foregoing services not covered by Medicare. Overall, more than four in ten older adults in households earning less than $40,000 annually report delaying or going without some form of medical care over the past year due to costs (compared to 24% of older adults with household incomes over $40,000), including dental care (34%), vision care (20%), and hearing services including hearing aids (16%).With substantial shares of the public reporting financial strains associated with help with everyday activities for themselves or family members, and seniors reporting difficulty paying for some health care expenses, the latest KFF poll finds broad support for many of the proposals in the reconciliation package being currently discussed in Congress.Home And Community Based ServicesOne in five adults, including 27% of adults 65 and older, say they are currently receiving ongoing support with everyday activities from either a family member (19%), a friend (11%), or paid nurses or aides (5%). Additionally, nearly four in ten (38%) adults say a too late for propecia family member gets ongoing help from at least one of these sources including another family member (30%), paid nurses or aides (16%) or friends (12%).

About one in five adults (18%) say they or a family member need either new or additional support from paid nurses or aides beyond what they are currently getting. The most common reason why people haven’t gotten the support too late for propecia they need is cost. More than three-fourths of those who say they need more help (14% of all adults) say “not being able to afford the cost of the care” is a reason why they or their family member has not received the additional support from paid nurses or aides.

Other reasons include not being able to find someone to provide the services (47%, or 8% of all adults), being worried about being exposed to hair loss (40%, 7% of all adults), being afraid or too late for propecia embarrassed to get help (32%, 6%), or being too busy or unable to find the time to get help (20%, 4%). With many reporting difficulty paying for cost of home and community based care, the poll also gauged support for Democratic proposals to increase funding to Medicaid to pay workers and expand home and community-based services (HCBS). Medicaid is the primary payer for long-term services and supports (LTSS), including home and community-based services (HCBS), that help seniors and people too late for propecia with disabilities with daily self-care and independent living needs.

Majorities across partisans (79% total, 95% of Democrats, 76% of independents, 67% of Republicans) support increased funding to Medicaid to pay workers and expand home and community-based services (HCBS).The toll On Unpaid CaregiversWith Congress discussing possible new tax credits to help with home and community based care, one in five adults (21%) say they are currently providing unpaid support with everyday activities to either a friend or family member, excluding the type of care young children need. Majorities across partisans also favor new tax credit to help people pay for such care (82% total, 94% of Democrats, 80% of independents, 73% of Republicans).The KFF October Tracking Poll finds unpaid caregivers are more likely to be Black or Hispanic (14% and 21%) compared to those who are not unpaid caregivers (10% and too late for propecia 15%). About eight in ten unpaid caregivers to family and friends do not have a college degree, and about half have household incomes under $40,000.

Consistent with recent focus groups conducted by KFF, the poll finds most unpaid caregivers (85%, 18% of all adults) report experiencing at least one of several negative outcomes due to their caregiving responsibilities. Over three-fourths of unpaid caregivers (16% of all adults) say they too late for propecia have experienced stress or worry related to the care of the individual they are caring for, with an additional half (11% of all adults) say they have experienced a worsening of their own mental health as a result of providing this ongoing support. About four in ten (9% of total) say they have experienced financial strain, such as losing a job or having to work reduced hours.

A similar share (38% and 8% of total) also too late for propecia say they have experienced a worsening of their own physical health. Expanding Medicare BenefitsWith Congress debating changes to the current Medicare program, eight in ten adults—and nearly all older adults—say Medicare is important to them and their family members. This includes too late for propecia at least seven in ten adults across partisanship, income groups, and racial and ethnic identity.

Significant shares of older adults in the U.S. Report difficulty paying for various aspects of too late for propecia health care, especially services not generally covered by Medicare. Four in ten older adults (41%) report difficulty paying for dental care while three in ten report difficulty affording hearing or vision care (30%).

Two in ten report difficulty affording their prescription drugs. Additionally, one-third report difficulty affording their out-of-pocket health care costs and one in five report the same about their monthly health too late for propecia insurance costs – shares comparable to those who report difficulty affording other household expenses such as rent or mortgage, gasoline, monthly utilities, or food and groceries. Dental services are the most common type of medical care that people have delayed or gone without with about with about one in four (23%) of adults ages 65 and older saying they have put off dental care in the past year due to cost.

This is followed by vision services or eyeglasses (15%) and hearing aids (13%) too late for propecia. Dental, vision, and hearing coverage are three benefits not generally covered by Medicare.Few older adults report delaying or going without a doctor’s office visit (6%), hospital services (5%) or mental health care (2%) due to cost. Overall, three in ten adults 65 and older report delaying too late for propecia or going without certain medical care during the past year due to cost (32%).

Even among older adults who are eligible for Medicare, those with lower incomes report delaying or going without care at higher rates. More than four in ten older too late for propecia adults in households earning less than $40,000 annually report delaying or going without some form of medical care over the past year due to costs (compared to 24% of older adults with household incomes over $40,000). While Medicare helps older adults pay for routine doctor visits and hospital stays, substantial shares of lower income older adults report putting off or foregoing dental care (34%), vision care (20%), and hearing services including hearing aids (16%) that are not generally covered by Medicare.

A large majority of the public (90%) favor expanding Medicare coverage to include dental, vision, too late for propecia and hearing coverage, including 97% of Democrats, 90% of independents, and 85% of Republicans. This proposal is also largely favored by adults 65 and older, including 96% of those in that age group who identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaning and 82% of their Republican counterparts. Proposals aimed at curbing the price individuals have to pay for their prescription drugs are favored by majorities of the public with at least eight in ten overall and at least three-fourths across partisans saying they favor each of the proposals asked about.

Eighty-eight percent of adults favor limiting how much drug companies can increase the price for prescription drugs each year to not outpace the rate of inflation (including 93% of Democrats, 86% of independents, 89% of Republicans) and a similar share (85%) favor placing an annual limit on too late for propecia out-of-pocket prescription drug costs for people on Medicare (favored by 88% of Democrats, 85% of independents, 84% of Republicans). The proposed changes to Medicare drug negotiations as part of the reconciliation package poll findings were released earlier this week.The Affordable Care ActViews of the 2010 Affordable Care Act are still largely driven by party identification with nearly nine in ten Democrats saying they view the law favorably, while three-fourths of Republicans say they hold an unfavorable view. Independents are slightly too late for propecia more favorable than unfavorable with more than half saying they hold a positive opinion of the ACA.

KFF has been polling on the ACA since its passage and since 2017 views have been more favorable than unfavorable but still sharply divided on party lines. The hair loss treatment relief bill too late for propecia passed in early March 2021 providing additional financial help for people who buy their own health insurance coverage. Previous KFF polling found that a small minority of those likely eligible for additional financial help or coverage reporting going online to see if they qualify for a different or cheaper health insurance plan.Among those under 65 years old, nine percent of those who are either uninsured or buy their own coverage reported going online in the in the two months before mid-May 2021 to see if they qualify for a different or cheaper health insurance plan or Medicaid as part of the hair loss treatment relief package.

Four months later, the too late for propecia latest KFF polling finds that about one in four (23%) of those likely eligible for this assistance have gone online to see if they qualify, though majorities (75%) still have not. In addition, changes to health insurance coverage provided under the Affordable Care Act continue to be seen through a partisan lens, with overwhelming majorities of Democrats and smaller majorities of Republicans expressing support. Overall, eight in ten adults favor making permanent the financial help to low- and moderate- income Americans who buy their own health insurance coverage (94% of Democrats, 79% of independents, 63% of Republicans).

Three in four favor the federal government stepping in to provide insurance options for lower income people living in states that haven’t expanded their Medicaid programs (94% of Democrats, 76% of independents) but this is supported by a small majority (54%) of Republicans.While the poll finds broad support for many of the Democratic proposed changes to the country’s health care system including the ACA, Medicaid, too late for propecia and Medicare, the poll did not ask about the potential costs and savings associated with each provision, or the size and scope of Democrats’ broader legislative plan, which includes many provisions unrelated to health care. MethodologyWith the Medicare open enrollment period set to begin October 15, a new KFF analysis finds that 7 in 10 beneficiaries (71%) say that they didn’t compare their coverage options during a recent open enrollment season. Twenty-nine percent said they did compare Medicare plans.But not shopping around can have a big impact on too late for propecia enrollees’ coverage and costs.

The Centers for Medicare &. Medicaid Services (CMS) recommends that beneficiaries review and compare Medicare plans each year.The new analysis examines the share of Medicare beneficiaries who compared plans during the 2018 open enrollment period for coverage in 2019, the share who compared drug coverage in Medicare Advantage and stand-alone drug plans, and variation by demographic characteristics, based on an analysis of the 2019 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (the most recent year available).Other key findings include:• The share of beneficiaries who said they did not compare their options was higher among beneficiaries who are Black (74%) and Hispanic (79%), ages 85 and older (84%), with low incomes (85%), and those enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid (87%).• When it comes to Part D drug coverage, 81 percent of Medicare Advantage drug plan enrollees and 72 percent of Medicare stand-alone drug plan enrollees said they did not compare drug coverage offered by their current plan to other plans.• Nearly half (47%) of all beneficiaries with Medicare said they had never visited too late for propecia the official Medicare website for information, 53 percent reported they had never called the 1-800-MEDICARE helpline and 31 percent said they did not read the Medicare &. You handbook.Medicare beneficiaries with traditional Medicare can compare and switch Medicare Part D stand-alone prescription drug plans or join a Medicare Advantage plan, the privately run alternative to traditional Medicare.

At the same time, enrollees in Medicare Advantage can compare and switch Medicare Advantage plans or elect coverage under traditional Medicare with or without a stand-alone drug plan.Coverage and costs vary widely among both Medicare Advantage plans and Part D prescription drug plans too late for propecia. Plans can change from one year to the next, as can beneficiaries’ health care needs, which could lead to unexpected and avoidable costs, and disruptions in care for beneficiaries who stay put and do not at least review their options annually.For other Medicare-related data and analyses, including our Medicare Open Enrollment FAQs and our updated Overview of the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit, visit kff.org.

Report receiving ongoing support for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, or remembering medications, and a similar share say they are providing those type of services for a close friend or family member. About one in five adults (18%) also say they or a family member need either new or additional propecia price canada support from paid nurses or aides beyond what they are currently getting. The most common reason why people haven’t gotten the support they need is cost.

More than three-fourths of those who say they need propecia price canada more help (14% of all adults) say “not being able to afford the cost of the care” is a reason why they or their family member has not received the additional support from paid nurses or aides.Many unpaid caregivers say providing support to friends or family members has caused them to worry or stress (77%), experience worsening of their own mental health (50%), financial strain due to inability to work (42%), or worsening of their own physical health (38%). Unpaid caregivers are more likely to be racial and ethnic minorities, those with lower education, and report lower levels of household income.Significant shares of older adults in the U.S. Report difficulty paying for various aspects of health care, especially propecia price canada services not generally covered by Medicare. Four in ten older adults (41%) report difficulty paying for dental care while three in ten report difficulty affording hearing or vision care (30%).

Dental, vision, and hearing coverage are three benefits not generally covered by Medicare but are part of Democratic lawmakers’ proposals as part of the reconciliation spending package.Many older adults who are eligible for Medicare also report putting off propecia price canada or foregoing medical care due to costs. While Medicare helps older adults pay for routine doctor visits and hospital stays, substantial shares of lower income older adults report putting off or foregoing services not covered by Medicare. Overall, more than four in ten older adults in households earning less than $40,000 annually report delaying or going without some form of medical care over the past year due to costs (compared to 24% of older adults with household incomes over $40,000), including dental care (34%), vision care (20%), and hearing services including hearing aids (16%).With substantial shares of the public reporting financial strains associated with help with everyday activities for themselves or family members, and seniors reporting difficulty paying for some health care expenses, the latest KFF poll finds broad support for many of the proposals in the reconciliation package being currently discussed in Congress.Home And Community Based ServicesOne in five adults, including 27% of adults 65 and older, say they are currently receiving ongoing support with everyday activities from either a family member (19%), a friend (11%), or paid nurses or aides (5%). Additionally, nearly propecia price canada four in ten (38%) adults say a family member gets ongoing help from at least one of these sources including another family member (30%), paid nurses or aides (16%) or friends (12%).

About one in five adults (18%) say they or a family member need either new or additional support from paid nurses or aides beyond what they are currently getting. The most propecia price canada common reason why people haven’t gotten the support they need is cost. More than three-fourths of those who say they need more help (14% of all adults) say “not being able to afford the cost of the care” is a reason why they or their family member has not received the additional support from paid nurses or aides. Other reasons include not being able to find someone to provide the services (47%, or 8% of all adults), propecia price canada being worried about being exposed to hair loss (40%, 7% of all adults), being afraid or embarrassed to get help (32%, 6%), or being too busy or unable to find the time to get help (20%, 4%).

With many reporting difficulty paying for cost of home and community based care, the poll also gauged support for Democratic proposals to increase funding to Medicaid to pay workers and expand home and community-based services (HCBS). Medicaid is propecia price canada the primary payer for long-term services and supports (LTSS), including home and community-based services (HCBS), that help seniors and people with disabilities with daily self-care and independent living needs. Majorities across partisans (79% total, 95% of Democrats, 76% of independents, 67% of Republicans) support increased funding to Medicaid to pay workers and expand home and community-based services (HCBS).The toll On Unpaid CaregiversWith Congress discussing possible new tax credits to help with home and community based care, one in five adults (21%) say they are currently providing unpaid support with everyday activities to either a friend or family member, excluding the type of care young children need. Majorities across partisans also favor new tax credit to help people pay for such care (82% total, 94% of Democrats, 80% of independents, 73% of Republicans).The KFF October Tracking Poll finds unpaid caregivers are more likely to be Black or Hispanic (14% and 21%) compared to those who propecia price canada are not unpaid caregivers (10% and 15%).

About eight in ten unpaid caregivers to family and friends do not have a college degree, and about half have household incomes under $40,000. Consistent with recent focus groups conducted by KFF, the poll finds most unpaid caregivers (85%, 18% of all adults) report experiencing at least one of several negative outcomes due to their caregiving responsibilities. Over three-fourths of unpaid caregivers (16% of all adults) say they have experienced stress or worry related to the care of the individual they are caring for, with an additional half (11% of all adults) say they have experienced a worsening propecia price canada of their own mental health as a result of providing this ongoing support. About four in ten (9% of total) say they have experienced financial strain, such as losing a job or having to work reduced hours.

A similar share propecia price canada (38% and 8% of total) also say they have experienced a worsening of their own physical health. Expanding Medicare BenefitsWith Congress debating changes to the current Medicare program, eight in ten adults—and nearly all older adults—say Medicare is important to them and their family members. This includes at propecia price canada least seven in ten adults across partisanship, income groups, and racial and ethnic identity. Significant shares of older adults in the U.S.

Report difficulty paying for various aspects of propecia price canada health care, especially services not generally covered by Medicare. Four in ten older adults (41%) report difficulty paying for dental care while three in ten report difficulty affording hearing or vision care (30%). Two in ten report difficulty affording their prescription drugs. Additionally, one-third report difficulty affording their out-of-pocket health care costs and one in five report the same about their monthly health insurance costs – shares comparable to those who report difficulty affording other household expenses such as rent propecia price canada or mortgage, gasoline, monthly utilities, or food and groceries.

Dental services are the most common type of medical care that people have delayed or gone without with about with about one in four (23%) of adults ages 65 and older saying they have put off dental care in the past year due to cost. This is followed by vision services or eyeglasses (15%) and propecia price canada hearing aids (13%). Dental, vision, and hearing coverage are three benefits not generally covered by Medicare.Few older adults report delaying or going without a doctor’s office visit (6%), hospital services (5%) or mental health care (2%) due to cost. Overall, three in ten adults 65 propecia price canada and older report delaying or going without certain medical care during the past year due to cost (32%).

Even among older adults who are eligible for Medicare, those with lower incomes report delaying or going without care at higher rates. More than four in ten older adults in households earning less than $40,000 annually report delaying or going without some form of medical care over the past year due to costs (compared to 24% of older adults with household incomes over propecia price canada $40,000). While Medicare helps older adults pay for routine doctor visits and hospital stays, substantial shares of lower income older adults report putting off or foregoing dental care (34%), vision care (20%), and hearing services including hearing aids (16%) that are not generally covered by Medicare. A large majority propecia price canada of the public (90%) favor expanding Medicare coverage to include dental, vision, and hearing coverage, including 97% of Democrats, 90% of independents, and 85% of Republicans.

This proposal is also largely favored by adults 65 and older, including 96% of those in that age group who identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaning and 82% of their Republican counterparts. Proposals aimed at curbing the price individuals have to pay for their prescription drugs are favored by majorities of the public with at least eight in ten overall and at least three-fourths across partisans saying they favor each of the proposals asked about. Eighty-eight percent of adults favor limiting how much drug companies can increase the propecia price canada price for prescription drugs each year to not outpace the rate of inflation (including 93% of Democrats, 86% of independents, 89% of Republicans) and a similar share (85%) favor placing an annual limit on out-of-pocket prescription drug costs for people on Medicare (favored by 88% of Democrats, 85% of independents, 84% of Republicans). The proposed changes to Medicare drug negotiations as part of the reconciliation package poll findings were released earlier this week.The Affordable Care ActViews of the 2010 Affordable Care Act are still largely driven by party identification with nearly nine in ten Democrats saying they view the law favorably, while three-fourths of Republicans say they hold an unfavorable view.

Independents are slightly more favorable than unfavorable propecia price canada with more than half saying they hold a positive opinion of the ACA. KFF has been polling on the ACA since its passage and since 2017 views have been more favorable than unfavorable but still sharply divided on party lines. The hair loss treatment relief bill passed in early March 2021 providing additional financial propecia price canada help for people who buy their own health insurance coverage. Previous KFF polling found that a small minority of those likely eligible for additional financial help or coverage reporting going online to see if they qualify for a different or cheaper health insurance plan.Among those under 65 years old, nine percent of those who are either uninsured or buy their own coverage reported going online in the in the two months before mid-May 2021 to see if they qualify for a different or cheaper health insurance plan or Medicaid as part of the hair loss treatment relief package.

Four months later, the latest KFF polling finds that about one in four (23%) of those likely eligible for this assistance have gone online to see if they propecia price canada qualify, though majorities (75%) still have not. In addition, changes to health insurance coverage provided under the Affordable Care Act continue to be seen through a partisan lens, with overwhelming majorities of Democrats and smaller majorities of Republicans expressing support. Overall, eight in ten adults favor making permanent the financial help to low- and moderate- income Americans who buy their own health insurance coverage (94% of Democrats, 79% of independents, 63% of Republicans). Three in four favor the federal government stepping in to provide insurance options for lower income people living in states that haven’t expanded their Medicaid programs (94% of Democrats, 76% of independents) but this is supported by a small majority propecia price canada (54%) of Republicans.While the poll finds broad support for many of the Democratic proposed changes to the country’s health care system including the ACA, Medicaid, and Medicare, the poll did not ask about the potential costs and savings associated with each provision, or the size and scope of Democrats’ broader legislative plan, which includes many provisions unrelated to health care.

MethodologyWith the Medicare open enrollment period set to begin October 15, a new KFF analysis finds that 7 in 10 beneficiaries (71%) say that they didn’t compare their coverage options during a recent open enrollment season. Twenty-nine percent said they did compare Medicare plans.But not shopping around can have a big impact on enrollees’ propecia price canada coverage and costs. The Centers for Medicare &. Medicaid Services (CMS) recommends that beneficiaries review and compare Medicare plans each year.The new analysis examines the share of Medicare beneficiaries who compared plans during the 2018 open enrollment period for coverage in 2019, the share who compared drug coverage in Medicare Advantage and stand-alone drug plans, and variation by demographic characteristics, based on an analysis of the 2019 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (the most recent year available).Other key findings include:• propecia price canada The share of beneficiaries who said they did not compare their options was higher among beneficiaries who are Black (74%) and Hispanic (79%), ages 85 and older (84%), with low incomes (85%), and those enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid (87%).• When it comes to Part D drug coverage, 81 percent of Medicare Advantage drug plan enrollees and 72 percent of Medicare stand-alone drug plan enrollees said they did not compare drug coverage offered by their current plan to other plans.• Nearly half (47%) of all beneficiaries with Medicare said they had never visited the official Medicare website for information, 53 percent reported they had never called the 1-800-MEDICARE helpline and 31 percent said they did not read the Medicare &.

You handbook.Medicare beneficiaries with traditional Medicare can compare and switch Medicare Part D stand-alone prescription drug plans or join a Medicare Advantage plan, the privately run alternative to traditional Medicare. At the same time, enrollees in Medicare Advantage can compare and switch Medicare Advantage plans or elect coverage under traditional Medicare with or without a stand-alone drug plan.Coverage and costs vary widely among both Medicare Advantage plans and Part D prescription drug plans propecia price canada. Plans can change from one year to the next, as can beneficiaries’ health care needs, which could lead to unexpected and avoidable costs, and disruptions in care for beneficiaries who stay put and do not at least review their options annually.For other Medicare-related data and analyses, including our Medicare Open Enrollment FAQs and our updated Overview of the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit, visit kff.org.

Does propecia cause hair loss

Using larger businesses as sites for rural vaccination does propecia cause hair loss clinics could help decrease treatment hesitancy and contribute to economic turnarounds in those areas, Cialis discount card experts say. On September 9, President Joe Biden issued sweeping treatment mandates calling for federal employees, federal contractors and healthcare workers at facilities receiving Medicare or Medicaid funds to be vaccinated. The “Path Out of the propecia” also does propecia cause hair loss called on businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure that their employees are either vaccinated or being tested.

Using businesses as a place to get vaccinations could overcome some treatment hesitancy in rural areas, said Jeanne Bonds, professor at the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School. Bonds’ research focuses on West Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina. €œOne of the bigger does propecia cause hair loss challenges is that in (rural) areas … they don’t have coordinated transportation systems that you really have to have to get the treatment out to the people,” Bonds said.

€œSo I think one of the advantages to requiring it at the workplace, if it’s a business with 100 [employees] or more, is that it probably opens up the option for actually delivering the treatments out to those places where inconvenience is an issue.” Those vaccination clinics also allow trusted voices in rural areas, like pharmacists and family doctors, to talk with workers about the treatment. Getting out the right message via the right messenger is important, Bonds said. €œIt’s a great opportunity for (workers) to have does propecia cause hair loss trusted messengers deliver the message about the treatments,” she said.

€œWe talked to people all over the state (North Carolina). Community leaders as well as just low-income households, and one of the pieces that jumps out is that people just don’t trust the does propecia cause hair loss messenger — they don’t naturally trust the government. They trust their local pharmacist.

I think it’s an opportunity for those businesses to bring treatments on site and also bring that message on site and increase the vaccination rate.” For example, at Tyson Foods, providing vaccination clinics onsite has increased the number of workers with at least one dose of the treatment, a spokesman with Tyson said in an email interview. In early August, the company decided to vaccinate its does propecia cause hair loss workforce and combined incentives for workers to get the shots with education and information. Like this story?.

Sign up for our newsletter. “Like many other businesses, we are taking steps to protect all of these things by requiring all U.S does propecia cause hair loss. Team members to be fully vaccinated,” Tyson President and CEO Donnie King said in an August blog post.

€œWe did does propecia cause hair loss not take this decision lightly. We have spent months encouraging our team members to get vaccinated – today, under half of our team members are. We take this step today because nothing is more important than our team members’ health and safety, and we thank them for the work they do, every day, to help us feed this country, and our world.” Tyson frontline employees have until November 1 to get vaccinated, and all new employees must show proof of vaccination prior to starting with the company.

€œWe believe that does propecia cause hair loss getting vaccinated is the single most effective thing our team members can do to protect themselves, their families, and the communities where we operate,” the spokesman said. €œWe continue to provide our U.S. Workers with free, on-site access to hair loss treatment vaccinations.” Tyson is providing a $200 “thank you gift” to fully vaccinated frontline workers and is running sweepstakes worth $6 million to incentivize vaccinations.

“We’re also conducting an extensive outreach campaign to educate and inform team members does propecia cause hair loss about the hair loss treatment vaccinations. These efforts include one on one conversations with team members to answer questions and address concerns.” As a result, the company has approximately 100,000 vaccinated workers – more than 80% of its U.S. Workforce.

Since the initiative started in August, more than 45,000 workers have been vaccinated. Increasing vaccinations is important, not just in ensuring people don’t get sick, but also in helping rural communities begin their economic recovery. According to the Brookings Institution, areas with low vaccination rates will continue to struggle as hair loss treatment keeps workers, shoppers and children at home.

€œThe treatment divide (between counties that are vaccinated and counties that are not)… will likely exacerbate the other economic divides that are already weakening the nation,” the report said. The more unvaccinated communities continue to resist safety precautions and vaccinations, the institute found, the more their economies could fall further behind faster-recovering communities with higher vaccination rates. In some areas with low vaccination rates, UNC’s Bonds said, the communities are dying.

Low vaccination rates mean more sick people who put more pressure on rural healthcare systems, she said. More sick people also means higher rates of death. In some cases, rural counties are seeing more deaths than there are births leading to the counties slowly dying off.

The most recent Daily Yonder analysis found that the rural hair loss treatment death rate is twice that of urban areas. About 40% of the total rural population has completed a hair loss treatment vaccination, while about 52% of the urban population has. Low vaccination rates also mean fewer people to work and shop, which means less money circulating through a community and fewer tax dollars supporting it.

Increasing the vaccination rates could turn things around in some rural areas, Bonds said. €œWe have these different tiers of counties,” she said. €œWe have the ones that are in really dramatically bad shape, which are going to take a lot of effort to bring back.

We have some that are kind of teetering on the edge, which I do think they can come back if they can attract people to come there.” But in some counties, economic issues like lack of affordable housing, lack of childcare and lack of capital to invest in the area will continue to be a problem, no matter what the vaccination rate is, she said. €œDepending on the county, bringing the vaccination rate up won’t necessarily turn them around,” she said. €œIt would have to be that combined with some other issues.” You Might Also LikeIn July, well before the hair loss treatments were approved by the U.S.

Food and Drug Administration, a group of medical professionals at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead, Kentucky, voted to mandate hospital employees take the treatment or be terminated. By the September 15 deadline, the healthcare system had terminated 24 of its 1,200 employees, including six nurses, Don Lloyd, St.

Claire’s president and CEO, said. While some medical exemptions were granted, the healthcare system held firm on its decision to mandate treatments for its employees. €œWe tried to accommodate those special needs and requests, but I’m proud to tell you right now that 100% of our employees and medical staff are fully vaccinated,” Lloyd said.

€œDoes it hurt?. Yes. Did we want to lose any of our employees?.

No. But our clinical leadership really feels strongly that we have an obligation to provide a safe environment and so that was the position we took and we’re glad we did.” The healthcare system has been able to fill most of those positions, he said. But some rural hospital administrators worry that a new treatment mandate for healthcare workers could mean fewer staff members.

While most administrators agree that vaccinations are an important step in protecting patients, employees, and other community members, some fear that treatment mandates could result in staff members quitting rather than getting the shot, leaving hospitals with fewer staff. On September 9, President Joe Biden announced a series of treatment mandates, including one that required all hospitals receiving Medicare or Medicaid funds to have their employees vaccinated. The mandate would affect more than 17 million healthcare workers, the White House said, and would create a consistent nationwide standard to “alleviate patient concerns” over whether or not healthcare providers were vaccinated.

With the mandate in place, hospitals should be focusing on how to fill staff openings if they occur, said one rural health advocate. €œInstead of being wrapped around the axle of should we mandate or should we not mandate, the question we should be asking is if we’re going to mandate, how are we going to ensure rural hospitals continue to have adequate staffing,” said Alan Morgan, CEO of the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). Rural hospitals are already understaffed, Morgan said, and recent surges in hair loss treatment patients are putting more strain on limited resources.

NRHA members are worried, he said, about having a sufficient workforce to meet the current needs if workers quit over treatments. What’s missing, he said, is a plan to address staffing issues once mandates are put into place. €œThere will be service disruptions, and there are multiple measures available to respond to them, but it appears that no one has taken the time to think this through yet at the federal level,” he said.

Throughout the propecia, he said, federal and state officials have used several measures – from deploying FEMA disaster teams or National Guard members, to utilizing nursing or medical school students as clinical help, to using provider relief funds on traveling nurses.

€œI’m sure there are other measures available here, but these need to be communicated so that hospitals and clinics can proceed with implementing treatment mandates with confidence that patient care will not be compromised, and the delivery of care can continue,” he said. Already, the treatment mandates are having an impact on hospital staffing in some areas of the country. In North Carolina, two hospital systems have seen resignations because of treatment requirements.

At Novant Health in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 375, or about 1%, of its more than 35,000 employees were placed on suspension for not complying with a treatment mandate, the hospital system said in a press release. At UNC Health in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, 60 of its 30,000 employees — about 0.2% of the workforce — had resigned from their jobs, citing the healthcare system’s vaccination requirement. UNC Health announced in July that it would require its employees to get vaccinated by September 21.

However, on September 20, the healthcare system pushed the deadline back to November 2. An estimated 95% of its employees have been vaccinated or granted exemptions, the system said, but it is still working to confirm the status of about 1,100 employees. At Yale New Haven Health, in New Haven, Connecticut, about 700 of its 30,000 employees are unvaccinated and could face termination if they do not comply with the hospital’s treatment mandate by Oct.

1. Marna Borgstrom, the system’s CEO, told the Register Citizen that if people were going to resign it would likely be at the end of September, but that she expected that most of the unvaccinated would get the treatment. €œWe’ve done everything possible in my opinion to do this the right way and as humanely as possible, not only for our patients and their loved ones but also for our valued colleagues, and I think the number of people who end up exiting the organization is going to be relatively small,” Borgstrom told the Citizen.

In Rhode Island, Governor Dan McKee and the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) announced the state would enact a new treatment enforcement strategy for healthcare workers who aren’t vaccinated to prevent disruptions to care. Healthcare workers in that state who aren’t vaccinated by October 1 will be given 30 days to come into compliance, during which time the employer can find a fully vaccinated replacement for that position. Healthcare facilities will be required to outline their plan to get workers into compliance while demonstrating that any unvaccinated staff member still working after October 1 is doing so to assure quality of care.

About 87% of the state’s 57,600 healthcare workers have been vaccinated, the health department reported. But for some rural hospitals, losing even a fraction of those numbers of workers would be devastating, NRHA’s Morgan said. €œFor larger systems, losing 24 employees may not be a struggle,” he said.

€œBut for smaller hospitals that could amount to 5 to 10% of their staff which would be devastating.” Morgan said the organization has reached out to the White House to see if there is a plan to help rural hospitals with staffing, but as of September 21 it had not responded.To combat treatment hesitancy, the NRHA launched the Rural treatment Confidence Initiative on September 21 that provides rural hospitals with action items and talking points that are rural specific and promote treatment confidence to healthcare workers and rural community members.

Using larger businesses as sites for rural vaccination clinics could help decrease treatment hesitancy and contribute propecia price canada to economic turnarounds in those areas, experts say. On September 9, President Joe Biden issued sweeping treatment mandates calling for federal employees, federal contractors and healthcare workers at facilities receiving Medicare or Medicaid funds to be vaccinated. The “Path Out of the propecia” also called on businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure that their employees propecia price canada are either vaccinated or being tested.

Using businesses as a place to get vaccinations could overcome some treatment hesitancy in rural areas, said Jeanne Bonds, professor at the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School. Bonds’ research focuses on West Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina. €œOne of the bigger challenges is that propecia price canada in (rural) areas … they don’t have coordinated transportation systems that you really have to have to get the treatment out to the people,” Bonds said.

€œSo I think one of the advantages to requiring it at the workplace, if it’s a business with 100 [employees] or more, is that it probably opens up the option for actually delivering the treatments out to those places where inconvenience is an issue.” Those vaccination clinics also allow trusted voices in rural areas, like pharmacists and family doctors, to talk with workers about the treatment. Getting out the right message via the right messenger is important, Bonds said. €œIt’s a great opportunity for (workers) to propecia price canada have trusted messengers deliver the message about the treatments,” she said.

€œWe talked to people all over the state (North Carolina). Community leaders as well as just low-income households, and one of the pieces that jumps out is that people just don’t trust the messenger — propecia price canada they don’t naturally trust the government. They trust their local pharmacist.

I think it’s an opportunity for those businesses to bring treatments on site and also bring that message on site and increase the vaccination rate.” For example, at Tyson Foods, providing vaccination clinics onsite has increased the number of workers with at least one dose of the treatment, a spokesman with Tyson said in an email interview. In early August, the company decided to vaccinate its workforce and combined incentives for workers to get the shots with education and propecia price canada information. Like this story?.

€œWe did not propecia price canada take this decision lightly. We have spent months encouraging our team members to get vaccinated – today, under half of our team members are. We take this step today because nothing is more important than our team members’ health and safety, and we thank them for the work they do, every day, to help us feed this country, and our world.” Tyson frontline employees have until November 1 to get vaccinated, and all new employees must show proof of vaccination prior to starting with the company.

€œWe believe that getting vaccinated is the single most effective thing our team members can do to protect themselves, their families, and the communities where we operate,” the spokesman propecia price canada said. €œWe continue to provide our U.S. Workers with free, on-site access to hair loss treatment vaccinations.” Tyson is providing a $200 “thank you gift” to fully vaccinated frontline workers and is running sweepstakes worth $6 million to incentivize vaccinations.

“We’re also conducting an extensive outreach campaign to educate and inform propecia price canada team members about the hair loss treatment vaccinations. These efforts include one on one conversations with team members to answer questions and address concerns.” As a result, the company has approximately 100,000 vaccinated workers – more than 80% of its U.S. Workforce.

Since the initiative started in August, more than 45,000 workers have been vaccinated. Increasing vaccinations is important, not just in ensuring people don’t get sick, but also in helping rural communities begin their economic recovery. According to the Brookings Institution, areas with low vaccination rates will continue to struggle as hair loss treatment keeps workers, shoppers and children at home.

€œThe treatment divide (between counties that are vaccinated and counties that are not)… will likely exacerbate the other economic divides that are already weakening the nation,” the report said. The more unvaccinated communities continue to resist safety precautions and vaccinations, the institute found, the more their economies could fall further behind faster-recovering communities with higher vaccination rates. In some areas with low vaccination rates, UNC’s Bonds said, the communities are dying.

Low vaccination rates mean more sick people who put more pressure on rural healthcare systems, she said. More sick people also means higher rates of death. In some cases, rural counties are seeing more deaths than there are births leading to the counties slowly dying off.
