Fixing a broken system for Maine kids, health solutions, NECEC is a good deal

Health care solutions Eastport As a Maine-based small business owner for over 17 years, we struggle with health care affordability. That’s why we firmly believe that now, more than ever, we need better solutions to keep costs from skyrocketing.

DHHS will also be required to post these data where they are accessible to the public. The department will have a new requirement to report back to a legislative committee on what they are doing to bring these numbers down and how they are working with families to improve the mental health of their children and to assist hospitals in placing children in more appropriate placements. Let us help fix our broken system and support LD 118. People should call their legislators today. As a mental health professional, I know the importance of ensuring that children receive prompt care and that includes mental health care as well. That is why I am supporting LD 118, which is a bill to address Maine’s shortage of behavioral health services for minors. This bill will require the Department of Health and Human Services to collect the data on how many children are remaining in emergency rooms for extended stays (beyond 24 hours) and the reason for the long stay.

Rachael Cox Kids are in crisis and our system is broken. There is a mental health emergency in Maine for any child who may require hospitalization. Maine has a shortage of pediatric hospital beds so most families will utilize their local emergency room for mental health care needs. The problem is most children will not spend a day or two in the ER waiting for a hospital bed to open, they will spend weeks where their behaviors will worsen, and some will even become violent.

Alan WhitneyLaci Daigle Owners Whitney’s Supermarket Corinth Why are costs so high? The whole point of health care is to help people, and medical providers take an oath to “do no harm.” If those who provide the care subscribe to that oath, so should hospital executives. Exorbitant salaries and astronomical facility fees are not the answer.

We have watched as hospitals have consolidated across the state, using the promise of lowered costs to justify those mergers, but, the costs of health care are still going up. Patients shouldn’t have to go bargain hunting for a procedure — the costs are all over the place and it doesn’t make sense. Health care isn’t like shopping for a sofa where you can say: “I should have bought it when I saw it at Marden’s.” This is health care where reasonable pricing and good outcomes should be critical components of a functioning system. Maine’s economy has always been challenging for small businesses, whether its high electricity costs or fuel prices, and it struggles to keep pace with the rest of New England because costs always continue to go up. To get our state’s economy on the right track, looking for solutions to rising health care costs has to be on the front burner.
