California’s Workers’ Comp Formulary

Posted by Danielle Jaffee on Dec 6, 2017 9:18:00 AM

It’s been over two years since AB 1124 was signed into law on October 6, 2015. The bill required the California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) to develop and implement a drug formulary by July 1, 2017. After several proposals, comment periods, and public hearings, the DWC pushed back implementation to January 1, 2018. The hope was by delaying implementation, the DWC would have more time to develop the formulary, addressing stakeholders concerns throughout the process, and allow providers, PBMs, pharmacies and insurers time to review and implement the final formulary into their processes.

CTE and Its Effect on the NFL

Posted by Danielle Jaffee on Oct 31, 2017 3:07:45 PM

These days it seems chronic traumatic encephalopathy, more commonly known as CTE has become synonymous with the NFL.  CTE is a degenerative brain disease often associated with repeated blows to the head.  It’s a unique disease because it manifests itself differently than other injuries or diseases.  The problems associated with it often arise years after the hits to the head, and when the symptoms start to appear they vary from person to person.  Some individuals suffer from memory loss or dementia, others depression and confusion.  But most importantly, we currently have no tests to diagnose CTE until the individual has passed away and their brain is examined.  Furthermore, that only occurs when an individual donates their brain for research.
